Just another WordPress.com site
After much nudging and encouragement from friends and family, I’ve finally decided to start my own Toronto based decorating business. I’ve been doing it for myself for as long as I can remember and have found that I really love beautiful spaces but more than that I love transforming things. I have a knack for buying the ugliest house on the block just so that I can really make it my own by changing everything about it. The downside to this is that I am constantly living with renos but that’s another story.
What I’ve come to realize is that I actually really like to be part of the process. Many of my projects have included a DIY component (partly out of necessity as budget is often tight) but more often because I like the challenge. The funny thing is that with each project I take on, I find that I’m more capable than I realized. Sewing a pillow isn’t as tricky as I thought nor is making drapes or box valences or even upholstering and refinishing furniture. What a slippery slope….I’m now that creepy lady picking up your old furniture on garbage day. But I kind of love seeing what I can make of it.
I look forward to sharing my misfires as much as my successes and will hopefully provide some inspiration to you in one form or another!
