It’s finally here! My home tour! I shared a reel of it over on Instagram but wanted to have an official place for it on my blog. I also have a video tour of it over on YouTube, which I’ll link below too. Okay, so without further adieu, here’s my new home tour! (Scroll past video for the actual blog post)
So let’s start in my front foyer. To be honest, it’s not done quite yet. You can’t see it in my picture but we have the original builder tiles in our front. I’d love to do something a little more dramatic like a black hexagon tile. I’m hoping to upgrade my tiles in the next year but for now here is what my front foyer looks like! I stuck with a light and airy feel for when you walk into the home. And of course, a couple of baskets for style and function.
I’ve never had a formal dining room in my last few homes. Which is why I wanted to create a practical space that I could not only eat formal dinners off of, but a place to sit down with my laptop and get some work done. And because I love white, I opted for a Ruggable rug for future spills in messes. You can literally pull the rug off the mat that sits below and wash it – genius! I’m so happy with how this space turned out and I can’t wait to add a few more pieces to it!
By far, my living room was the most stressful to design. It’s a large room but it is more narrow than wide. I knew I wanted a big comfy couch to dive into. But fitting this Structure sectional did come with a few challenges. Like, I don’t think I can fit barstools on the island behind. Nevertheless I opted for the large sofa and added a “faux” built in. I say faux because it’s actually 4 Besta units from Ikea. I’m really thrilled with how they look and they add a lot of extra storage in the home which is always much needed!

The kitchen was truly a labor of love. We wanted to make it how we envisioned it but also do it on a budget since this isn’t our forever home. We stuck with a white and homely colour palette (cupboards are Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee). I wanted brass pulls mixed with stainless steel appliances. We kept the quartz countertops that came with the home. But, I’m also hoping to change it in the near future. Both backsplash tiles and floor tiles are from Home Depot and I’d recommend them especially for the price! The kitchen truly is the heart of the home and I’m really happy we decided to give it a face lift first.
Besides the kitchen, our eat-in space really is the second most used. We eat all our meals here and spend so much time here as a family. Although my table and chairs are from my rental home, they really did fit into the space so easily. Even though they’re white, they are super easy to wipe down. Especially with Poppy throwing all her food during her meals, lol! Both table and chairs are very affordable too.

The bedroom is my sanctuary. I feed Poppy here, read books and play with Poppy here and unwind from a long day here. I wanted it to be calming with neutral colours and just a relaxed vibe. But I also didn’t want it to fall flat, which is why I choose some colour in the rug and a more contemporary light fixture. I am beyond happy with my new master bedroom and look forward to sleeping in here every night!

My absolute favourite space to design was the nursery. Something about creating a space for your child to sleep in, play in and grow in is magical. I know this room will see many different designs and colours in the years to come. But I really love how it is right now in this moment. I choose a DIY board and batten and a vintage wallpaper for a girly feel. It really is such a calming room but feels like a child’s room too! I can’t wait to see Poppy grow up here and see her design choices for this space as she gets older.
And last but not least, the playroom! This room is still a work in progress but my goal was to make it functional but cute. Poppy loves cruising back between her toy baskets and her little kitchen (not pictured). We wanted to keep this room super simple since one day we hope this will be a nursery for Poppy’s brother or sister. We did a quick DIY arch and kept it very neutral so we could easily style it for our next child. Needless to say this room is truly a special one and I love spending time in here playing with Pops!
