As of late the projects coming my way are those of older homes in need of some new life. And I couldn’t be happier. While new builds are exciting in their own right, I just love coming into a home with history and giving it a modern update that aligns with my clients style. There’s also a charm in older homes that you just can manufacture in a new build.
But older homes do come with their challenges and can often be tricky to decorate. The balance of historical and contemporary isn’t an easy one to find. This weeks Inspired Interiors home tour has managed to find that balance perfectly.
Well it sure feels like Spring has arrived in Calgary and I couldn’t be happier! The sunshine, longer days and double digit (positive) temperatures are glorious! I hope wherever you’re reading what’s caught my attention in this weeks Tuesday 10, the sun is shining and Spring is flirting to make her appearance too.
I can hardly believe St. Patrick’s day is less than a week away! How will you be celebrating? Corned beef and cabbage? Shamrock shakes and green beer? I thought I would mark the occasion by giving a comfort food classic an Irish twist – St. Paddy’s Day Mac and Cheese. I’ve added in Guinness Stout and Irish Cheddar Cheese to give a childhood favourite a flavourful, grown-up makeover. It’s decadent, creamy and so delicious. I bet you’ll never make regular Mac and Cheese again! Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
