A colourful spring table for Easter

In my last post, I shared how to decorate an elegant Easter table, but today, I want to share our Easter brunch setting from last year. Since it was only my guy and I celebrating, I decided to see if I could get a number of tulips to split up into smaller bouquets to deliver ...

How To Elegantly Decorate Your Table For Easter

It’s almost hard to believe that we will be celebrating yet another Easter without friends and family. A year ago, we were in the early part of our city’s pandemic lockdown and to cheer myself and my Instagram followers up, I ordered a ton of flowers from Fauchois Fleurs and set an elaborately decorated Easter ...

A turret bathroom with a rococo mural

When we were looking at buying our carriage house, the real estate agent warned us about the eccentric art in the master bath. “You’ll either love it or hate it” she said.

Magnificent Martinique

When I think back on my trip to Martinique (a trip I won thanks to: Martinique Gourmande, Tourisme Martinique and Air Canada), I remember the sun, the sand and the radiant smiles of the Martiniquans.

What’s a gal to do when HGTV.ca reaches out to say they would like to feature her home for their Great Canadian Home series and that gal panics because said home is not ready for its close-up? She calls on her friends for help! In my case, it was Mobilia and Mezari, two local Montreal companies that ...

I was hoping to one day collaborate with Mobilia because it’s a local Montreal furniture company that I’ve always liked, but I thought that would be further down the road. Then a photographer for HGTV.ca reached out to ask if I would be willing to have my home featured on HGTV’s website for their Great Canadian ...
