Dining Room Makeover

From black and boring to bright and breathtaking

by: Sarah Gunn

I have just finished working on huge super exciting project. It has involved a lot of painting. I mean a lot...walls, furniture, and accessories. Now that is it over {stay tuned for more info VERY soon} I feel like I need a new creative outlet. I think I know just what to choose: my dining room.

Simple And Colourful Gallery Wall

indie mats make it easy

Indie mats

By the time you purchase the frames and get them exactly where you like them, creating a gallery art wall can be tricky and expensive. I came across a product that takes all of the guesswork (and nail holes) out of the way. Indie Mats are a colourful and simple way to create a gallery wall with no nails and no frames.

Nova Scotia Fine Art

Maritime Masterpieces

by: Sarah Gunn

I am always inspired when I come home to Nova Scotia. This summer I want to share with you two incredibly talented Nova a Scotian artsts, Tom Alway and Peter Blais. I have loved their work for a long time but this is the first summer in ages that I have been able to spend time with them in their quant gallery, called The Maritime Painted Saltbox

Their work captures Nova Scotia perfectly. The images and the colours say home to me. 

Just look: 




The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

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.
