I’ve been working on the finishing touches for our living room with the main focus being on art. Although this room was painted quite some time ago, I wanted to find just the right pieces before we started making any new nail holes. Patching, sanding, priming and painting can be a total pain, so I’m always a little reluctant to pull out the hammer without a pretty good plan in place. Art makes a huge difference in a space…
Hello there! If you follow along on Facebook, you may have seen the call out for reader questions a few weeks ago. To those of you who emailed me, thank you! I really do enjoy seeing what you’re up to.
Unfortunately, I can’t get to each and every one of those questions today. No need to fret! The design and decorating (and other) dilemmas you’re currently facing help me plan future blog posts, as well as social media content, so I encourage you to continue following along […]

One of the projects I looked forward to most this holiday season was decorating our mantel. Although we had completed our living room makeover last November, I was suffering from renovation burnout and barely mustered up enough energy to put up a tree and wrap gifts. With all of that behind us now, I’m having fun coming up with fresh new ideas for the Christmas decorations we already had on hand, as well as some recent decor finds […]

One of our go-to cities for extended weekend trips is Vancouver. It’s a short flight from where we are and it’s a fairly easy city to navigate. I’ve probably been there a dozen times for work and leisure, and it never seems to disappoint […]

Hello all! Have you noticed the sudden transition to fall? After Labour Day Weekend, it’s as though we’ve forgotten all about summer and are ready for chunky sweaters, plaid throws and pumpkin spice anything.
Although autumn is a season I adore, I like to slow things down a bit. You know, hang on to weekend picnics, afternoon coffee on the patio, and BBQ dinners with friends for just a bit longer […]

Hello Satori friends! Today, I’m excited to share our latest DIY project using salvaged wood. Somehow, in the midst of our entire main floor renovation, we managed to build a farmhouse table. I know, a bit crazy with all the chaos going on, but our reward was being able to play around with some new […]
