Style And Know-How
They say home is where the heart is. These Canadian home and living bloggers not only have homes with heart, they showcase their knowledge, style and great ideas to share with the rest of us. We dare you to read any of them and not come away with an idea or two.
Emma started this blog in 2010, and The Marion House Book has been featured in many magazines and on HGTV.ca. She has blogged her way through renovations and projects with beautiful photographs and an eye for detail. Emma also works at the Art Gallery of Ontario as an exhibition designer and is part owner of the design studio Marion Melbourne. The baby nursery in this post made us swoon for a little one to hold.
Tanya and her husband have been working on decorating and small-scale renovations to their townhouse in Ottawa. She blogs about DIY projects, ideas, tips and tricks, inspiration and anything else that crosses her mind. She brings a sense of humour to her posts and claims that she blogs about her townhome because she herself is snoopy and curious about what inspires other people. Take a bit of a townhouse tour here, and you may find new inspiration for your place too.
When someone has served as an editor of Canadian House & Home magazine, you know they have a talent for design and decorating. Cobi Ladner is the creative force behind Cobistyle, and she brings her enthusiasm and energy to every project she's involved in, even volunteering at her children's schools. She is a children's book author, a TV personality and often a guest columnist. She has even launched her own product line featuring furniture, accessories, fabrics, lighting and draperies. We loved the colour explosion in this post dedicated to the colour red.
Vanessa Francis found her passion for interior design after a stint working in human resources management, and went on to found her design firm in 2003. She has the ability to mix styles and textures together for her clients in a way that keeps each design unique and personal. She loves to transform spaces, like this dining room project that you have to see to believe.
