Tell us a bit about your home and what you love about it the most?

I live in the capital of Canada in an urban setting so the layout of my house if a little unusual. It is over three floors and I love how unique it is. I love small and cozy as opposed to large and cold and having a house designed over several floors makes it feel so cozy and warm. I love neutral colours and lots of light!

What was the first DIY project you did to your home or first thing you made for it?

I turned one of the weird small spaces in my home into a reading nook complete with a small couch, an old wooden trunk to put my feet on and lots of pillows and throws.

Do you have any tips for staying tidy & organised?

I think my biggest tip for staying organized is to stay on top of it. If you take a few minutes to put things away as you use them then it doesn't get out of control. Once you start letting things pile up it becomes very daunting to tackle the problem.

If you could tour any celebrities home, who would it be?

The Queen of England! Is she a celebrity?! I would love to tour all of her homes and roam the halls and lands of her castles.

If you had three wishes, what changes would you make to your home?

Oh that's easy! 1. Rip out the carpet and replace it with wide plank, reclaimed wood. 2. Change the appliances from black to stainless. 3. Paint the railings.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

On top of painting and hunting up vintage finds I love to read and travel. I love to read just about anything... fiction, news, history... I love it all! I also love to travel. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to 12 countries so far.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Not that I can think of ;)
