Lyla and I will get up and organize something in your house while we’re talking to you, we will pull out the crossword section from the newspaper at the dinner table to keep our hands and minds occupied while we are having a conversation, we both love interior design, we both read like crazy and like most of the same kinds of books, we share similar music taste (she recently introduced me to Adele, and I have introduced her to Duffy. Lyla is also a very loyal blog comment and I’m sure you’ll see her comments on at least half of all of my posts. I have two very huge blog-supporters in my Mom and her!
Her main family room, sitting area.
Their adorable powder room–feels very French, non? :) The painting is of the parliament buildings in Prince Edward Island (MOST beautiful place! Can’t wait to get back there someday) was a gift from Steve’s parents, who are P.E.I natives.
The living room where we have spent many a Christmas Eves.
I love her little vignettes all over the house.
Steve and Lyla’s dining room.
Ohhhhhh k. Just my favourite by a long-shot. Steve and Lyla have been renovating both upstairs’ bathrooms over the past few weeks and their guest bathroom was recently finished. Isn’t it GORGEOUS? Lyla knew I would love it because I love style like this. Wow.
The Guest bedroom they recently made over as well; a fresh coat of paint and bedding and this room has such a clean, vintage sort of feel.
I have to say that I just really really love that shot on the right here. I do. I mean, it’s Lyla who decorated it, but I just really like the shot. That dresser is…I think 60 years old? My Dad had it in his room or something when he was a boy? Then I think the story was his nephew painted it white to have in his room and Lyla has been chipping away at it to restore it to it’s original colour.
The Master Bedroom. Funky hey?
& Then some new portraits of the lady herself.
Thanks Lyla! It was a fun morning. :) Always appreciate the tea: hah!
