The front exterior of my pink dream house. Halifax is known for their colourful homes. I decided to paint the exterior of my home pink as the thought off adding colour to my neighbourhood sparked so much joy in me! Exterior Home Before A year and a half ago, when I took ownership of this home, I had no idea the journey it would take me on. While I had a clear picture of how I wanted to design the interior of my home, the exterior was a bit of a mystery to me. I had long been coveting the soft white exterior pallets re popularized by social media a pinterest, and thought I would choose a nice ..read more

Your fireplace is the natural centre point of your home, so why not make a statement by doing a floor to ceiling stone install? Fireplace Before! When I started my renovation on this 1922 craftsman style home, It was important to me to work within the look and design of this style of home while adding a layer of freshness and trend. Before we lifted my home we removed the original exterior chimney to lighten the load. At this point I decided to remove the old fireplace entirely, replacing it with a larger grander Gas one. We were starting fresh with new framing for a new fireplace and that me ..read more

Everyone always wants to know how much a bathroom renovation will cost… Well the answer is not as simple or clear as one would hope for. A bathroom renovation costs anywhere from 10 to 100 thousand dollars, much of which depends on the finishes you select. It’s also why it’s so important to build a footprint for each project so you know exactly where your money is going. Take flooring for example, if you prefer large stone marble walls and floors in lue of ceramic ones, you best get ready to pay more!

In today’s blog I am excited to break down my design and furniture selection for my kitchen and dining room space. When I started the renovation of this century old home in downtown Halifax my mind was set on opening up the walls and having one grand room on the main floor, (Kitchen, Dining, Living room). But I also wanted each space to be defined as their own. This took some careful planning, and meant I had to make design decisions that would impact the space, early on in my renovation. In order to have my kitchen and dining room feel cohesive and well thought through, I started incorporatin ..read more

TOP 5 Camping Tips for Non Campers   As someone who is late to the camping game - my family didn’t camp together when we were kids, I’m not much of the roughing it type! On our first journey out with the camper my daughter said to me… “I don’t know about this camping thing mom, I’m more of an indoor girl.” I had to chuckle at the comment from my then 8 year old daughter. But as many of us turned to camping as covid kept us close to home, this 1973 Boler camper came into our life and transformed the way we felt about the great outdoors. So as a reformed non camper, I’ve discovered how bri ..read more

This summer has been full of surprises. A good portion of my summer has been dedicated to  renovating the front lawn and backyard of my home, but as with most things, Covid delays have slowed down the process. In the meantime, I have taken on a trailer reno!  The original thought was to restore and remodel an Airstream trailer, but I figured I would be better off starting with something a little smaller. So I’ve settled on a 13-foot Boler trailer. If you’ve never seen them before, Boler trailers were made from 1968 to 1988 in Winnepeg Manitoba. Only 10,000 were manufactured and they ..read more
