Home, Garden & Decor Show a success!

Hello and happy Tuesday!

The weekend went by in a fury of activity for The Inspiration Nest and myself. On Thursday we built and painted walls, packed up the studio and moved to Deer Creek. Friday morning we pulled our space together and by 3pm we were all set and ready to greet! We met so many wonderful people over the weekend and are completely humbled and thankful to everyone for all of the lovely comments on our created space! 

Incase you missed it here are a few images of the space we pulled together. All of the reclaimed furniture was restyled by Mango Reclaimed, the overall space and vision (including all the beautiful flower arrangements) were pulled together by The Inspiration Nest . . .and we are very gracious to Urban Barn in Whitby and Osso Lighting in Oshawa for letting us borrow some beautiful decor items to really make our space feel like home.

We divided the space into two distinct areas (please disregard the busy carpet pattern which we were unable to completely cover, lol). The first space was a formal dining room complete with restyled buffet, mirror, chairs and dining table:

We also pulled together an inviting living room space complete with couch, restyled storage cabinet, coffee table, club chairs, end table and sideboard:

Leslie (The Inspiration Nest) and I also did presentations on the main stage on Sunday afternoon which went over great. Thank you to everyone who came out to hear our talks! Watch my blog for the completed restyled dresser that I started on stage. A gorgeous 4 drawer dresser van Gogh painted in 'calm seas' and 'morning mist' creating an ombre effect up the drawers.

We are so very thankful to our amazing support network of family, friends and contractors that helped us pull everything together (and on Sunday pull everything back apart) - thank you!! 

I hope you enjoyed all of our hard work - special thanks to all the wonderful people we met over the weekend - because of you it is all worth it!

Many of the restyled items showcased this weekend are now available for purchase at Mango Reclaimed, so please contact us if you're interested.

New inventory items and The Inspiration Nest @ Urban Barn!

I have to admit - I'm a bit behind on my blogging recently . . . but I'm getting back on track now with lots of exciting new posts to share with you!

For starters - we have some new items added to our inventory!

These items are currently available for purchase. You can buy them 'as is' OR you can buy them custom restyled in any colour & finish of your choice! For more details on any item (including dimensions and pricing), simply click on the image.

Be sure to check out our complete online inventory frequently as new items are added regularly! All items are kept onsite at the studio so if you would like to see something in person, let me know ahead of time by e-mail or phone and I'll make sure it's pulled out of inventory and visible for you when you stop by the studio!

On another note . . . .

In case you missed it - here is a snapshot (actually two) of Leslie from The Inspiration Nest as she was giving a workshop on how to decorate with colour at Urban Barn a couple of weeks ago. There was a good turnout to the event and Leslie didn't disappoint with her great tips on how to really pull a room together! I'm so lucky to have such stylish and talented best friend!

Leslie has another workshop coming up Tuesday Nov 25th, 7pm at Urban Barn in Whitby. This event will be a free mini workshop on how to decorate your Christmas tree. Those in attendance will receive 15% off Christmas decor AND 2 ornaments just for attending! Call 905 620 0254 to reserve your spot!

If you don't already, you should definitely follow her on Facebook to see what she's working on!

Thank You!!

Wow! What a day! Thank you so much to everyone who came out on Saturday to celebrate our 1 year! I can't believe that we actually had a line up before we opened at noon!!

The table setting by Leslie (The Inspiration Nest) looked fabulous! I love the pops of gold and black!

 I can't even talk about how beautiful this wreath is that Leslie designed!

The display for Kalina Naturals soaps looked good enough to eat! Thank you Marta!

If you were one of the first 50 guests here - you went home with one of these 'goody bags'! Hope you enjoyed them!!

The sweets were a bit late arriving - but boy'oh'boy were they worth the wait! Delicious! Thank you Cocoa Lane Sweeterie!!

Thanks again everyone who came out to celebrate with us!! xo
