Hi there! This page is dedicated to my lurve of Wayfair!I hope that my design experience and Wayfair choices will help you to decide on some beautiful things for your home too!! I would never never never ever (Taylor Swift never) share a product or service that I don’t LOVE love love. Some items were provided by Wayfair, and some were purchased. All major expenses for renovation, cabinetry, flooring…. pretty much everything… were paid by yours truly. I hope you click through my fave Wayfair finds on this page.. in support of my blog….(affiliate links help pay for my liquorice eating habit)…AND, more importantly…to help save the shopping legwork for you. I picked out some really cool stuff! You’re gonna love them!! Sending you a bonk ton of love for your support. Let’s get this parrrrtayyyyy started!
FAQQ. Why Wayfair? With all the choices in the marketplace? Why? A. First of all, I love to shop in my pajamas. I love doing my shopping without ever having to step into a shopping mall. Gah. Malls make me want to throat punch people. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE that Wayfair now ships to Canada. Woooooooohooooo!!! Q. Do you buy small items only to be safe, or do you go for the gusto and go big or go home? A. I go big and get it delivered to home. I first started ordering small things like pretty white jugs, and tea kettles, and then starting working my way up to the bigger items like gorgeous bar stools and brass floor lamps (ADORE!) I made it all the way to a sofa! <– PS. that’s my fave piece. Q. Can we just talk about those stools. They were chrome! How’d you make them all brassy brass brassssss? A. It wasn’t a big challenge to change the Wayfair stool (similar one//mine is discontinued) to a brass look. It was truly easy!! We had the chrome powder coated ! We hired pro’s to do the work, and I ADORE them. They are one of my faves and mix so beautifully with the other brass elements in the kitchen. The white covers are easy to wipe clean. I’m a happy camper, and they are really comfy! Q. It looks like you like to mix natural elements in your design. Tell us more. A. I love white and the staggering simplicity it brings to a space. My signature elements are clean lines, bright whites with restrained accent colours. I like to throw in some vintage finds and even cool finds from the backyard… like twig curtain rods! …
PS. There’s a DIY for the curtain rods here.You can see a lot of natural elements in our cabin too. We incorporated old windows, a vintage ladder and armoire … into a more modern feel with a wee Wayfair stove, chrome faucets and pretty little tea towels.
I would never do that. I totally did that.Q. Tell us anything you’d do differently. Mistakes teach us a lot. A. Be extremely clear with your contractor on how the process will go. Establish timelines, payment milestones and how change orders will be dealt with. Over budget and plan on it taking much longer than you think. Plan for twice as much time and money. Have it in writing. I like to think that life can work on a handshake, but sadly it doesn’t always work out that way. Q. What advice do you have for those that want to achieve your style? A. My advice is that you don’t have to break the bank on renovations. Paint is inexpensive and goes a long way to making a huge difference. I use twigs for curtain rods. A lot. It’s a classic in my home. LOL.
Best advice.... When in doubt, paint it white.
