A few months ago, my boyfriend Mick and I purchased our first house, just outside of Toronto. So, with the dawn of a new blog, I thought it would be a great opportunity to share my decorating ups and downs (hopefully less of the latter). We’re a household of three: Mick, the football/golf/hockey obsessed handyman who can be found tinkering in the garage or grilling a rack of ribs on the BBQ; Wendel, the adorable beagle puppy who pays rent in kisses and cuteness; and myself, Lauren, who spends days dreaming up ways to create my dream home (and also wishing Mick wasn’t so against white furniture).
This being our first house, we’re definitely on a budget, so I’m really excited to take on DIY projects, whether it’s wallpapering the foyer or painting an old piece of furniture to bring it back to life.
Every Monday I’ll be doing a feature on my decorating process, so I hope you’ll follow along as we turn this cookie-cutter house into the home we’ve always wanted.
