Margot Austin - Straight Shooter!

I had the pleasure of hosting Style at Home Senior Editor, Margot Austin in my class at Humber College North last week. I was so excited to listen to her talk about getting your work published, but, I wasn't expecting this little bitty thing to be such a straight shooter, no sugar coating anything kind of gal! I tell you it was truly refreshing and funny to hear this industry icon speak her mind and to be such a down to earth lady. Right down to using the quote "where the f*#@ is the magic!" Speaking about designs that are lacking that wow factor. It was very interesting to hear what they look for and what they do to the rooms/spaces that are published within the magazine. Let alone here what Margot had to say. I know the students enjoy it as much as I did, it truly was an interesting topic! Thank you so much for your time Margot and we do hope you are able to come back in the future!
Look Staci Edwards even stopped by to listen to Margot!
Until next time,

Windowless Den Makeover!

Now a day's with the layout of condos we are stuck with a boring windowless room with no creative features. WELL take a look at what I did when I was presented with the challenge! Turn a small box sized room into a stunning and fun guest room, plus extra storage and reading/office space and I did it all for under $1300!!

Pillows, throw, rug, floor lamps are from Bou Clair. Shelves from Ikea. Sofa found on Kijiji.

Wall Tats from Bou Clair and Decorative sticky mirrors from Winners.
Ikea frames, with greeting cards the client collected.
Augh the before.

And the After! Until next time,
w&c designer girl!
