The Dutch have a special word to describe “cosiness”, “comfort”, but it’s also something that goes a little beyond that. “Gezellig”. Pronounced correctly, it kinda sounds like you’re clearing your throat, but this blog explores its meaning by documenting experiences that make life richer and deeper; through food, family, and the making of a home.

Hire Me!

Are you constantly amazed how some people can take a random vase, table and rug and seem to pull it all together?

My day job is officially rooted in graphic design, but with enough renos and interior design projects under my belt I am looking to build my interior design portfolio.  I have a particular interest in commercial design, done on a shoestring budget. I tend to focus on vintage and DIY types of styling. I can give you any advice you need on how to source that one-of-a-kind element that will separate your space from your neighbours!

I can help with everything you might need, including:

Furniture Selection (how to use Kijiji to it’s maximum potential!)

Interior Design (how to use local resources to give your room a unique personality that reflects YOU)

Space Planning (the feng shui kind, and also how not to bang your knee against that table leg for the umpteenth time)

Sustainable Design (what materials are safest for you and your family. After all, you’ll be touching and breathing in that room for many years to come)
