HGTV Takes a Tour of Our Home

I'm excited to share that our home tour is featured on HGTV Canada's website today! I love the title they came up with and I find it very fitting: 'An '80s Vancouver Home Gets a Bright, Pattern-Happy Makeover.' It's always interesting to hear how others perceive and analyze your own home - I thought, boy if only they knew how much MORE pattern and color I am planning to add and layer-in as I continue with these rooms and the rooms that have yet to be completed!

And while I know you've seen the majority of the images from the HGTV article on this blog, I actually haven't posted the updated photos of Marcus' nursery here. At the time of my One Room Challenge, in desperation to finish up I took photos myself. Having Tracey Ayton come in and take professional photography of all of these rooms, including a re-take of the nursery, was such a huge blessing and I'm super thankful for her talent and fresh eyes to see the spaces in ways I hadn't before.

The article mentions that my home office (pictured as a closed door in one of the shots), is next on my decorating to-do list; the truth is it feels like SO many rooms are next on my list. Flooring and paint has been completed everywhere but we now have to decorate the Master bedroom, the upstairs hallway, and the family room. We still have construction/cabinetry needed in the Master closet, laundry room, and home office, and a FULL reno of the 1980's Master ensuite (the big-ticket item that may take a bit of time to save our pennies!). The exterior has had shingles replace the old tired stucco, but we have a bit more to do out there too. That's a whole lot more spaces to work towards and I look forward to documenting it all here with you.

To see more images, read the whole interview, and see the sources listed, head to  here. An extra special thank you to Christy Wright who authored the article and made me sound way cooler than I actually am :)
