Home Favourites


We had such a great day shooting a family shoot for the Highstreet Blog! First off, if you haven’t been to Highstreet yet, you should head out there for a little fun in the sun shopping! An amazing outdoor shopping experience with pink berry right at your finger tips! (And of course lots more). Don’t be intimidated by the “Abbotsford” address, it’s a lot closer then you think! (For all you Vancouver/ Lower mainland friends!)

Today was all about the three of us being home and hopefully capturing a little “at home living”. We had a blast and totally played around for the feature! The feature won’t be out till September! I know sounds like forever from now! So in the mean time I’ve taken a few shots of some of my favourite little vignettes from today’s shoot! Enjoy.

    Hi Monica!
    Former PA’er here (’97), and just found your blog thanks to Mary K & Kristen B.

    Where did you get your mirrored side tables? Love ‘em!

      Thank you for your sweet comment! Gotta love a PA gal! :)

    Hi Monika! We are remodeling our house and doing white cabinets, trim, walls-all white! Did you use the same white on cabinets and walls as well as trim and ceiling? If so, what color did you choose?

      Hi Erin,

      I believe the cabinets are Cloud white by BM.

    Hi monika. I love your house design. I am finally after 7 years putting up a backsplash in my kitchen. I could not decide on a tile. I love marble but does not go with my counter top. I am going to go with a white subway tile , but do not want to go the the small tile. Can you tell me what size of tile you used for your kitchen?? Also , can you tell me where you bought your curtains in the dining room. I love them. Thanks so much.
