Home Highlights

Hey Beauties!

My home is a very personal space for me, it is my salvation, my office, my sick bed and my inspiration. I spend an immense amount of time in my little slice of a Victorian house and it so incredibly important to me that it be reflective of who I am, my design aesthetic, my family history and my life with my boyfriend. Up until now, I have kept my home mostly private but I’ve had quite a few requests for a home tour so while I am not ready to share the whole shebang, I thought I would give you a sneak peak. I’ve compiled photos of a few of my favourite spots in my home, starting with the open living/dining room, then going into the bedroom and office.

My living room is very eclectic but also very homey and cozy. It has a massive fireplace with a beautiful carved wood mantel and I have included a lot of vintage furniture handed down from my family. I have a massive collection of old black and white photos from my grandparents that I like to display. It is very important to me to remember and have a connection to the people that came before me. My living and dining room has a neutral palette with plenty of grey and white that I like to balance with bright coloured flowers and textured pillows.

Now, my bedroom is very cozy but simple and it is full of my handbags, shoes and clothing. It is also home to quite a few Disney characters and a beautiful Disney painting my boyfriend had done for me (which unfortunately photographs terribly). 

Now, my office is my place for inspiration and it also holds my makeup collection. If you want to see more of my office, check out this post from when I first renovated that room. 

So there were a few highlights of my home and I hope you enjoyed. What does your home look like?
