"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Plate walls, granny or chic??
I was having a conversation with some friends (you know who you are) over lunch last week about Sarah Richardson and her plate wall she did on the first episode of Sarah 101. I was against it from the start and thought it was bad on every level. So I thought I would try and find some cool plate walls to see if they would change my mind. What I have discovered is that there is a fine line between chic and granny. I think the key is to mix up the styles so it doesn't give off that granny vibe, you know? After saying all that I'm still not convinced:)
I am a wife, mother, and interior decorator who is obsessed with anything and everything involving home decorating and design. This has been a passion for as long as I can remember. I am thrilled to be sharing projects and things that inspire me right here from my living room in South Surrey, BC Canada
