What is your best tip for creating a space that feels warm & inviting?

LAYERS OF TEXTURE! SOUL! NATURE! VINTAGE! ..."these are a few of my favorite things!..." ;)

I promise you, an all white space does not have to feel stark. Use it as a blank canvas and start layering the life into it!

What are some of the biggest lessons you've learnt while creating your home?

Don't fight your style, I ended up doing exactly what I wanted to do in the first place in this space. Definitely, would have been easier to do the first time!

What is your favourite part of your home?

I love the serenity that I feel when I walk into the space!

What advice would you give someone when it comes to finding their personal style?

The key to adding a personal touch to a home is..... soul, soul, soul! Listen, forget trying to make your space feel perfect and instead try to add warmth, love, and your personality to it! It will begin to take shape naturally! You'll see!
