Where is your home located?

Vancouver, BC Canada

What is your favorite decorating style?

I love all things French, vintage, rustic, shabby chic, beachy, industrial. I love the mix of everything together.

Where do you get your decorating influence from the most?

Blogs and magazines.

In 5 words or less, your home is?

Vintage, industrial, beachy and french

What is your favorite store or flea market to shop at?

My favorite local store is Country Furniture, but I source a lot of items on Craigslist, curb side, flea markets, Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware.

Share one of your favorite decorating tricks or ideas:

I love mixing high and low together, old and new, light and dark. The contrasts are what make a home original.

Your favorite paint color, name and brand:

Benjamin Moore French Canvas and Behr Off-White.

What are your favorite things to collect right now?

I've always been obsessed with crocks. I've been collecting them for years. If I see one for sale, I have to stop myself from buying them now although I'm not sure why I need to stop. I also love wire baskets and continually horde mirrors.

What is your favorite room in your house, and why?

My kitchen. The kitchen is the first photo you look at when searching for a house. I'm obsessed with kitchens. I just had mine renovated, so this is the first time anyone online is seeing it! I think it just makes the whole house and where everyone spends the most amount of time.

Your next project is:

There are always 101 projects continually on the go. We're almost finished renovating our rustic industrial cabin in the woods and are moving stuff up there this month. So exciting!
