…a happily married woman (to the marvelous Michael) with two amazing kids (Lily and Liam) who are growing up way to fast!!!
…a lifelong learner and information junkie who has a
full blown slight addiction to well-written television shows.
…a dreamer and aspiring author.
Turning her love of decor and design, her preference for vintage and second-hand treasures, and her interest in writing, into something productive — finally!!!
Okay, enough third-person talk…
Providing readers with a good chuckle, A GRAND REVIVAL is about reviving and transforming our century-old Gothic Revival cottage (122 years old, in fact!) into a unique and livable home that is filled with whimsy, charm, and character. It’s about getting in touch with my personal sense of style, and taking steps (however big or small) to improve the look and function of our living space. One of my chief aims is to re-use and re-purpose furniture and materials, as well as bring in vintage and second-hand items, to generate a space that reflects my own values and design sensibilities (not to mention, fit my rather humble budget).
Most importantly, A GRAND REVIVAL was created not only as a means to revive our home, but also as a way to reconnect with my own spirit — it’s a way to bring back the kind of kooky and fun-spirited girl within me who has been through some tough times in recent years.
Hopefully, my low-budget projects, plans, and ideas will inspire you to breathe a little life back into your home, and possibly revive your spirit in the process.
Thanks for following.
