Painting my ass off…:)

Tanya List

We are officially home:)  yyyaaa!  I couldn’t be more excited.  When i look from any window on the main floor i can see the water…… we really do own a little piece of heaven.  Heaven however needed a heck of a lot of painting.  The previous owners had very different taste than myself.  All the cabinets were dark, walls different (not so complimentary colours), and the whole house was lacking in some serious character.  Ry and i have already thrown ourselves into reno mode.  I painted the walls, trim and the dark cherry wood cabinets-all white.  Ry then lined the ceiling with wood planks and added some much needed character with some crown moulding though out the dinning, kitchen and living room. ……i then did some more painting it all white:)  NO WORRIES, there will be TONS of colour in the decor items!!!  Here are just a few pics amongst the reno:

Bye bye Toronto…..Heeellloooooo Muskoka

Tanya List

Well I’ve been living in the city of Toronto for the last 13 years.  Wow…..can’t believe it….i think that officially makes me a touch older:)   To all of those people who have made me laugh while drinking too much wine, i just wanted to say thanks and i hope we all keep in touch:)

Ry, Reid and I are moving on to what hopefully (after a massive amount of renos) will be our forever dream home.  I can’t begin to tell you how amazing it feels. Don’t worry….tons of reno pics to come!!!  yyaaaaa.  BUT, for now, here are some pics of the  living room renos we did in our Toronto home.

A few tears fell as i drove away today.  Some very beautiful memories were created in that house.  It was the first house i ever called a home after leaving my parents so many years ago………

Furbish Studio (this is my dream)

Tanya List

I day dream often of owing a gorgous retail shop filled with nothing but bright coloured furniture, art, lighting and whatever else i might find along the way.  Furbish Studio located in Raleigh North Carolina is pretty much exactly what i had in mind.  I creep this website and blog i suwannee as many times a week as my life will allow.  Who knows…..maybe one day my dream will come true:)

Here is some of Furbish’s amazing designs:

House for sale….SOLD!!!

Tanya List

Our house in Etobicoke that has been in some-sort of reno stage since the minute that we bought it 4 years ago.  The house was officially reno-free on wednesday, went on the market for sale on thursday, and sold by friday!!!!!  Less than a day on the market and before it even hit mls.ca it sold in a bidding war……..every sellers dream…….we still can’t believe it!  Thanks to our amazing agent Robyn Ennis and Chestnut Reality, photography by Tyrone Newhook.

Here are the pictures of the hardwork that Ry and I did together.  I get to dream everything up, and then my main man makes it a reality!  Only a few spats along the way and several bottles of wine consumed and this is what happens…..:)

Here is the kitchen before and after (more rooms to come)!

The new watermark

Tanya List

Ok…..so for those of you that don’t know me well, i’m not what you would call technologically inclined…lol.  So that fact that i have a blog and also the fact that i just figure out how to re-size my “watermark” myself is kind of a big deal!!!  I’m feeling pretty darn smart right now:)  Check out the latest Muskoka wedding bridal bouquet featuring my watermark!!! yyyaaaaaa!

Rosa & Chris….my lovely neighbours

Tanya List

My neighbours Rosa & Chris just had their amazingly beautiful eclectic home shot for houzz.com.   I was lucky enough to be invited to add in a few floral touches to the space.  Please check out the full tour!

Ry, Reid and i will be very sad to leave our neighbours at the end of October to move up to Muskoka.  We have made some amazing friends over the the last 4 years in this house that we hope to keep in touch with forever:)
