When I decided to attend the Design Bloggers Conference this March, little did I know that I'd be returning from Los Angeles awarded 2017's 'Best New Design Blog'! Check out the highlights from this year's conference and other details from the trip.
I recently returned from the Design Bloggers Conference in Los Angeles and am so grateful to have met many wonderful peers and mentors. During my time at the conference, I was asked more than once if I was 'really a farmer's daughter?'.

It's been a chilly week here in Saskatchewan - with temperatures reaching -30 degrees Celsius - yikes! Therefore, this week's Roundup is chalk full of bright + cozy spaces laced with a healthy dose of fresh florals. Hope you enjoy!

It seems like my project agenda is always long but a new front step and railings top the list for us this spring. However, you don't need to order a cement truck to improve the look of your home. In fact, it can be pretty simple. Here are five ways to start this spring:
I don't know exactly what makes a lake house feel different than other houses - maybe it's the expectation of sunshine and relaxation or the gathering of friends and family, but whatever it is, lake houses just seem to have a ethereal quality to them.
When I came across this tutorial on Alice and Lois, I just had to try making these marbled Easter eggs because honestly, it looked totally do-able. The whole process only took a few minutes and I love how festive they look piled in a bowl on my island.
Well today is the day... the 'launch day' of my own interior design business! You know when you've been thinking about something for so long and brainstorming ideas and dreaming about how it could look and what it would be like...?
