Vintage Decor Finds and DIY Message Board

My Cityline Debut

by: Sarah Gunn

I have watched Cityline forever and have always loved the décor and DIY segments. So the fact that I was on there today totally blows my mind. I can’t even tell you how great it feels to be given such an amazing opportunity to do something I am so passionate about. This has been a dream of mine forever. Honestly, forever. And now it was happening, which was beyond exciting but also totally nerve wracking!

Vintage Decor Shopping in Nova Scotia

My Favourite Shops on the Lighthouse Route

by: Sarah Gunn

Some of my best childhood memories are from the drives I took with my parents along the Lighthouse Route each summer. Not only is the scenery beautiful, but the vintage and décor shopping is amazing.

This summer my mom and I recreated our trip, stopping at our old favourite shops and discovering some new gems.

These are must must-stop-shops on the South Shore of Nova Scotia {heading from Halifax to Bridgewater}:

1. Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard
30 Hwy 3
Hubbards, NS B0J 1T0

Dreaming of a Seaside Getaway

Memories of My East Coast Holiday

by: Sarah Gunn

I spent much of the summer {so far} in Nova Scotia at my mom’s house by the ocean. Now that we are back home, I am missing the fresh air, the carefree days at the beach.

My east coast holiday reminded me how I have always wanted a cottage on the water with a dock and a canoe. Until that dream comes true, I can daydream that I will get an invite to one of these gorgeous spots. Anyone have a spare bed {or hammock} they want to lend me?

Sarah Gunn loves interior design almost as much as she loves her two adorable boys and her hot husband. 

She has had a vision her whole life of her dream house. You know. The mansion that sits on the ocean with a pool and the massive wrap around porch. And a butler. Then she grew up. Turns out life isn't a fairytale and she's not exactly living in a castle. In fact, her house is in constant need of design intervention. Little things like children, exhaustion and budgets get in the way.

But this story does have a happy ending: years of experience watching decorating shows and clipping ideas from her favourite design magazines have equipped Sarah with the mad decorating skills she needs to turn anyone's house into the home of their dreams with great tips, tricks and inspiration. 

Join Sarah each week as she shares DIY projects, inspiration and her favourite new décor finds...all on a budget every mummy will love.

Sarah has recently had a dream of a lifetime come true: she now shares her mad DIY skills on the popular show, CityLine. She is also now designing spaces for children. If this is all a dream, then please don't wake her up.
