Hi! My name is Lauren and I’m the girl behind the blog! My husband, Eric and I live in Ontario, Canada with our two beautiful children.
I am passionate about making homes beautiful – whether it’s a full-scale renovation, styling for the season, or decorating for a party! Since becoming a mom, I added photography to my list of passions as I traded my cellphone’s camera for a DSLR so I could document our lives and projects through beautiful high quality photos. I created this blog to share what I love and hopefully spread some inspiration!
My love for interior design began a long time ago. As a little girl I loved watching HGTV with my mom and grandma, rearranging furniture and I painted my bedroom so many times I think the room got a few inches smaller! While in University, I worked part time at Rona (a hardware store in Canada) and Sherwin Williams for ten years collectively where I loved to give colour advice and live vicariously through people designing their homes!
Eric and I bought our first home at 23, we didn’t really intend to “flip” it but we got in the market at the right time. We are now in our third home and while I have the dream of eventually building a home from scratch one day, we plan to stay here a while. I love to share how we are taking the DIY route to customizing our home.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology (unexpected, right?) however I have never worked in law enforcement. Purely out of interest, I obtained a diploma from the Interior Design Institute in 2018. I am CONSTANTLY inspired and I could get lost scrolling home decor on Pinterest and Instagram for hours. I love and appreciate so many styles but my personal style is a cross between coastal, french mixed with a little bit of traditional.
