Home Decor || A Sneak Peek || My Living Room Redesign

I’ve got spring fever big time, I’m sure this warmer weather isn’t helping the bug. Every spring I get the urge to purge, clean and re-design my main spaces. Weather I’m moving furniture around the house to change the look or changing out key pieces the goal is the same: transformation.

Currently I’m working on a few projects: our master bedroom, dreaming of our patio and our most used area the living room. Before I go completely bananas in the living room I thought I would check in to show you the progress. Here’s a little sneak peek!

Home Decor || My elegant modern living room with @TheBrick…

I’m always a little bit sad to see the holiday decorations go each year. So I try my best to lessen the decor depression by adding a few light, bright and elegant details around the house. A quick declutter followed by a trip to the grocery store for tulips always does the trick.  Here are my favourite modern living-room pieces everyone needs from The Brick:

A plush rug in a light neutral.

A modern sectional with adjustable features like these headrests.

Home Decor || Our Master Bath Renovation with @Thebrick & @attleainc

It is finally here, our master bath renovation reveal, I know you’ve see a bit of it in previous posts on my insta stories and social media throughout the transformation process. We’ve gotten so many questions from where we found this oversized round wooden mirror to how I got away with pink cabinets with my hubby! All your material sourcing questions will be answered with this post, thank you for your patience… I wasn’t ignoring your questions, I just wanted to answer them all in an easy access blog post. Without further ado welcome to our new and improved glam master bathroom.

When we moved in this summer I knew I wanted to update this bathroom. It had not been changed since the early 90′s and it clearly needed a bit of help in the design department. We designed the space around this round mirror concept from The Brick and the look of light bright marble bathrooms I had been pinning on Pinterest for months. The moment we found this oversized round mirror we knew that meant two pendant lights for the vanity and we would want to tie in small wood accents throughout. I found this crystal and wood block in store from The Brick, accents vary per location but you are sure to find something unique when you pay them a visit. It was so worth the hunt… they also have an amazing selection of special order items online too. Our contractor made these the custom bench and shelf to add those rustic elements to this feminine place.

For those of you that were asking where we found these amazing pink and gold cabinets, they are custom made woodwork by Attlea Inc. They are locally owned in Edmonton and are known for their modern designs and amazing craftsmanship. They used Benjamin Moore “Flush Pink” paint # 2081-70. Dustin mirrored that exact colour on the accent wall above the bathtub. I love the faded pink with the touches of silver and gold throughout the place.

Lifestyle || Home Decor || Our Man Cave Reveal with @TheBrick… With Before Photos!

I’m so excited to finally reveal our new and improved Man Cave! With ALOT of help from The Brick, we’ve transformed this place into a cozy viewing room that everyone in the family can enjoy. I really wanted my husband Matt to have a place that he could both get away from the kid chaos but also enjoy some family time every once in a while. I went with a modern industrial feel as usual but kept all the small touches very masculine.

Every single piece of furniture from the couch to the book shelf are from The Brick. I even found these accessories in store. We love the Samsung 70″ KU6290 UHD LED Smart Television and Odesos 72″ TV Stand with Glass Ember Firebox and Soundbar. It easily heats our entire room in minutes so we can get all cozy while easily accessing Netflix and youtube!

Welcome to my holiday home tour. As you know, baby Harper arrived this month so unlike other years, I’ve only had enough time to include a handful of rooms. Sorry guys, we’ve had our hands full with late night feedings and diaper changes. I’ve linked as many items as I could think of along the way if you are looking to snag a particular item. If I missed one, leave me a comment and I’ll let you know the source. Hope you get inspired to decorate your home for the holiday season, it’s such a magical time of year.

Canon CS100 is a perfect gift for that snap happy photo taking family member. Pictured here on my bookshelf, I store all my photos in one place where they are easily accessible to share on my smart TV. It’s nice to not use up all the storage on my iPhone with photos.
