declutter with me – linen/cleaning closet

Welcome to season two of my declutter with me series. Last time I did this series we were living in a small basement suite which had very little room to collect anything extra and as such it was very important that we cleared out often. Now we have been living in our home for almost…

creating home – garage

This is it. The final creating home post for a while. We have almost finished up the entire house with only one room left untouched. The second bedroom won’t be touched for a while as we hope to one day use it as a nursery, and don’t want to do anything with it before then….

creating home – office

This room is one of the final room is this series (for now) and is one that I wasn’t expecting to do just yet. While my desk and office-y things went into this room when we first moved in, it was a room that we spent no time in as the room was a colour…

creating home – main bathroom

This was not the home post that I was planning on writing this month. Last month when I was planning out my blog posts for the month this room was in complete shambles. We had been living with a hole in our wall pretty much the entire time we have been in this house and…

creating home – living room

It is no question why this room is called the Living Room as I spend more waking time here than anywhere else. Whether it is watching TV (currently on a Gilmore Girl’s rewatch), working out, cozy-ing up by the fire, or gathering with friends this is a place that I spend a lot of time….

creating home – dining room

I have often dreamed of being able to host in my own home, in big dinners, in tables loaded with snacks for mingling people, and for board games taking up lots of space. Now, when I look at my dining room (sadly currently devoid of all people) I can imaging this in my mind. I…

creating home – kitchen

The kitchen is very important to me. With a husband who cooks for a living and me who bakes when stressed we both need a space that allows us to have room in the kitchen to do the things we love as well as be a mixture of functional and pretty. When we were house…

creating home – laundry/mudroom

This room is exciting for a lot of reasons, the first being that it is a room that I never thought that I would have. Knowing that I would be one day purchasing a townhouse or condo and not a detached house I figured that my washer and dryer would just be in a closet…

creating home – master bedroom

I have been a homeowner for just over a month now, and it is getting to the point that it is starting to really feel like home. Bit by bit the rooms are coming together and I am starting to feel like it is really mine. I knew I wanted to share my home with…
