My Exciting News: Urban Barn & A Custom Chair Competition!!

I have some exciting news to share with you!!! The Canadian home furnishing store Urban Barn is holding a Custom “Chairity” Competition   And I was totally thrilled, honoured and beyond excited when they invited me to design my very own custom chair with four other Interior Design Bloggers across Canada.  This event starts today until  March 11!



And here they are in all their glory!! The custom five chairs are currently on Urban Barn’s Facebook page AND you, the public are to vote on your favourite chair.   When you vote you are automatically entered into a draw to win one of your own custom chairs or one of five $100 gift cards. How fabulous is that?


Voila “The Glam” Chair! This is how I describe it:

“Christine’s Glam Chair was designed to make a bold statement in your home.  This glamorous chair with its high octave purple snakeskin texture, silvery grey arms and whimsical floral seat cushion is sure to be a conversation starter in any room of your house!”

I would really appreciate it if you would click here and cast your vote for my chair!!

Then on Thursday March 8th at p.m. I will be at the Oakville Urban Barn store to talk about my inspiration behind the custom chair I designed for the Custom Chairity Competition, as well as tips for ordering custom furniture. So you are all invited…..I really hope to see you next Thursday!!!

You will also receive 15% off all custom furniture during this event!  Space is limited so RSVP early!

At the end of the contest the winner will be announced, then each chair will be auctioned off with full proceeds going to the charity of each designer’s choice.  The charity of my choice is Jays Care Foundation.  Since 1992, Jays Care Foundation has been empowering children and youth in need, inspiring them to make positive choices and helping them realize their dreams by providing access to programs that support physical activity, education, and life-skill development.

So please vote, whether its for my chair or not……but hopefully it is!! Winking smileThank you!!!

Happy Thanksgiving — What I’m thankful for this year!

It’s the Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday, October 11th..and you know what that means….lots of turkey, family around the table and time to contemplate what I am thankful for this year!!

So here is my list of what I am thankful for this year!!!

1)  The love of my family and friends:

Thank you to my wonderful husband who continues to support me in my continuing adventure of being a sole entrepreneur in the interior design world!!   Thank you to my 2 beautiful little girls who always make me laugh and keep me feeling like I’m 29!!!  Thank you to my inner circle of friends who constantly support me through personal and professional endeavours!!

2)  The power of Social Media — without it, many of the opportunities I have experienced so far this year would not have happened:

Twitter:  Thank you for allowing me to ‘meet’ some of the most fascinating people from all over the globe and make it feel like I am having a cup of coffee in the same room with them.  Thank you for introducing me to a group of local women (you know who you are) who continuously empower & support each other to grow as women and help grow their respective businesses.  Thank you for introducing me to a world of interior design bloggers — my education in the design industry is never-ending and I love it!!

Facebook:  Thank you for allowing me to stay in touch with friends from my past that I don’t see anymore and allowing me to meet new friends with common interests!

3)  Thanks to my clients who invited me into their homes and constantly inspire me to create beautiful interiors for their homes and businesses.

4) And last, and this may sound weird, but I want to thank “Courage.”  Without courage, I wouldn’t have started my own interior decorating company or started writing a blog this past summer or contemplated launching my own online interior decorating show.  Starting a second career is scary but “Courage” helped me get through that scary phase and now I am having a blast!!!

5)  And a special thank you for reading my blog!!

I hope you and your family have a wonderful thanksgiving!!!  xoxo
