Jillian Harris Design

At the end of the summer I had the pleasure of touring a gorgeous home that was designed and decorated by Jillian Harris. I absolutely loved the design of the home, it was light and airy with large windows that let in plenty of light (a must for me) and the finishings were simply gorgeous! From the enormous white kitchen to the beautiful master bedroom, I was smitten. It was wonderful to get a little inspiration from such a stunning home and translate a couple ideas to my own space. Although my apartment is small, I’m always looking to switch out old pieces and add a little glam wherever I can. My favorite pieces of funiture were the nightstands with pretty mirror detail; I’ve been searching for the perfect nightstands for a while and those immediately caught my eye!

Home for the Holidays

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends! I feel blessed to have family who lives close by, meaning my husband and I travel very little over the holidays…which translates to more time spent in our pjs, drinking coffee around the fire. Christmas is by far my favourite holiday, I love decorating our apartment in shades of white and gold, seeing all the pretty lights and spending time with friends who are home for the holidays. It’s also my favourite time to reflect on all that I’m grateful for and donate to those who are less fortunate, which is what I believe Christmas is truly about.
