💫MODERN SANCTUARY💫.
..
Big thanks to Modern Sanctuary for the feature and sharing my family's story of going from a large home in the suburbs to a small home in the city.
..
I've learned so much about small space decorating and how to live with less but more meaningfully.
..
I've since redecorated this living room in all neutrals but looking back at this rug (I got for the Brooklyn flea market) it may make an appearance again :-).
..
Big thanks to @pineconecamp for the photos and you can read more at modernsanctuary.life.

🌿HYGGE🌿.
..
Are you familiar with the Danish term and way of life -- Hygge?
..
I became aware of it last year when a study came out about how the Danish are the happiest people in the world. And what intrigued me the most was that it wasn't big fancy things that made them happy but instead it was the little, meaningful details they added to their home and life.
..
I've really tried to apply this way of BE-ING to my home and life and I will say it's made a huge difference in how I feel during the cold and sometimes dreary fall and winter months.
..
Join me tomorrow on @btvancouver at 8:20 where I'll share some of my favourite ways to bring Hygge into your home and lifestyle. I'll also share more inspiration in this week's Decor With Love Note (Link in Bio to Subscribe).

🌿VIBE🌿.
..
When you keep coming back to something that is your vibe. And this bedroom, I keep coming back to.
..
Even though I live in Vancouver and that's where most of my clients are I really love the feel of a California style. Where things are a bit more casual. There is lots of texture. Natural elements are always around and you'll pretty much find a rattan chair in every room 😍.
..
There is a guest room in #projectmorgan2 that I think may have to go this vibe. What do you think? Make sure to be subscribed to my newsletter to see more of how this room turns out. Link is in my bio.

➰YOUR PERSONAL STYLE➰. ..
Do you know your personal style? I think that it evolves and changes with us over time.
..
When I decorated this condo years ago, my style was much more feminine than it is today. But, when I look back I notice some things have stayed the same.
..
I like a LOT of texture. I'm not against colour but still prefer to go with tones in the same palette and layer on the texture.
..
One of the best ways to find your style is to collect images you love. Then see the similarities. What are the colours, the feel, the materials?
..
I'm sharing more on Finding Your Style in my weekly Decor With Love Newsletter! Make sure to sign up {Link in my bio}.

✔️FAVOURITE✔️.
..
The final touches, accessories, styling, whatever you want to call it. I'd say it's definitely my favourite part.
..
I'm working on doing that with #projectmorgan2. There are 4 beautiful open kitchen shelves just waiting for me to get my hands on them. It's about creating moments. And your home ideally should be a series of moments you love.
..
Feeling this inspiration from @studiomcgee and the way they mixed materials, textures and heights. Stay tuned!

💫NIGHTY NIGHT💫.
..
Those who know me, know I go to bed super early. I always have and it's getting to the point where there are some nights I'm asleep before my little girls :-).
..
I also have a very small side table but I believe anything can be beautiful. So get a lovely lamp, buy those fresh flowers, put out one of your favourite decor finds or one of my favourites is a pretty bottle with lavender oil.
..
It's the small things that make a big difference in our homes and our lives. Design: Karla Dreyer Design 📷 @pineconecamp for @styleathome

⚡️VELVET⚡️.
..
It's everywhere in fashion which means it's in decor too -- Velvet!.
..
Personally I think it's one of those materials that never goes away. I used these blue velvet beauties in a project about 4 years ago and they are still current today.
..
If you don't want to commit to velvet chairs, think simple ways like a cushion or throw blanket. There are always easy and inexpensive ways to bring the so called trends into our spaces.

✔️THE MIX✔️.
..
I believe the more we decorate and play with our space the more we learn what works and feels like us.
..
Personally, I love colour and pattern for my clients but personally I'm leaning more and more toward spaces that have a similar colour tone.
..
But how to do that without it looking drab? It's all about the mix. And thinking of materials in opposites. In this picture of a table I styled for Style At Home Magazine we used a wood bowl, misted with matte black, linen, sheen in the plates and gold. And I love it!

➰ART➰.
..
Love when you see something that pretty much sums up the design of a project.
..
That's what happened when finding this print. I'm in the last bit of design on a project that I'm so excited to see come together. We went with what I'm calling "California Glam" look.
..
There is very little grey in this house and more white, blacks, creams and yes beiges. It's warm but fresh at the same time.
..
Stay tuned for more pics and make sure your subscribed to my newsletter for all the design inspiration! Link in bio.

➰JOURNEY➰.
..
This was one of my first full on decorating projects. The client (who was also a friend) is a very girly girl, recently single and wanted a place that reflected her style. We went neutral but layered in lots of texture and glam touches. I felt like I created a space that you would walk into and know who she was right away.
,,
When I got this condo photographed for my website, to my surprise the pictures got published in Style at Home Magazine! This was a complete dream for me as I spent my youth devouring this magazine.
..
But -- then the ball dropped. This sometimes happens with expansion, there is contraction. A couple people in the industry decided to say some not so nice things and instead of women supporting women it crushed me that people could be so petty.
..
My point to this is that a negative situation in our business and life can get inside our soul and hold us back,. But as Brene Brown says we need to own our story and write our ending.
..
Years later now I have learned to let go. I'm learning to let in what is good and kind. And I'm starting to own my dreams and make them a reality. Even if there are naysayers.
..
Stay tuned for some shifts, but probably not surprises in what I focus on moving forward and how I inspire people to live authentically in their homes.

💫REBEL💫.
..
I've always been kind of a 'goody two shoes' so it made it that much more exciting to be part of the amazing Real Rebel Podcast with Katie Buemann!
..
We all have a story. A story of our journey to date. This is the first time I've shared that journey in this way. ..
We chat about my previous career as a corporate Vice President and how I really felt on the inside during that time. ✨ How there are forks in the road and these are the moments that really define our journey. ✨ How being true to my intuition is the guiding force I keep on learning. ✨ And how being aligned with who you are and what you do I believe is the key to true success! 🌟.
..

➰ROPE➰.
..
One of my favourite new 'trends' is rope! We are seeing it in baskets and bowls. When I was in Italy, the amazing Debbie Travis had beautiful red poufs made of rope that had me drooling.
..
This has inspired one of my favourite DIY's of all time. Yes, of ALL TIME :-). ..
Make sure to tune into Breakfast Television tomorrow morning where I'll share some Fall Decor  on a Dime, including my rope creation that costs less than $10!

EXPAND 🌿 Back from my Italy adventure but keeping still and a little 'off the grid.' 🌿What I love about new experiences is the way it allows us to expand. 🌿 Expand in the way we think, create and most importantly gets us out of our sometimes 'bubble' of life that can keep us small. 🌿 I'm back with fresh ideas, renewed excitement and a sense of courage to live authentically, without all the 'noise' holding me back.🌿 Thank you @debbie_travis for sharing your magic ✨

🌿THANKSGIVING🌿.
..
For all my Canadian peeps Thanksgiving is around the corner. I'm one for keeping it simple. ..
With busy lives, let's make it a time of connecting. And when it comes to your tablescape, look to nature.
..
Pumpkins, pinecones and leaves are perfect ways to make your table looks amazing. I love this idea from @houseandhome where they took simple leaves and spray painted them gold, placing in small vases.
..
I hope this little DIY inspires you -- Happy Thanksgiving!

⚡️PURGE⚡️.
..
So, my family has been on a slow but steady purge. It started with clothes, moved on to toys and now it's my stock pile of decor pieces that I've been hoarding in the basement.
..
I got these chairs about 7 years ago from a decorator who was helping me with my previous home. I love the cane, the vintage vibe and with a new fabric they could be amazing again.
..
BUT...I'm going to let them go. I have a new home for them and as much as it pains me to see good finds leave, I know I have to start letting go (and I mean this in more than one way) to let in the stuff that aligns with who I am now. Am I still talking about chairs??!!.
..
Well, I'll have this memory of them from a shoot @pineconecamp did of my home for @designsponge feature. Bye bye vintage beauties 💫.
