Hillside Music Festival

a celebration of all things beautiful in this world.


Cities are full of inspiring designers, makers, shopkeepers, chefs and entrepreneurs ā€“ each making or doing beautiful things. I love bringing you a collection of snapshots and stories about inspiring people and places,  as well as life and style moments. I hope you'll be inspired by what you see ā€“ to discover the beauty in your city, your wardrobe or your home.

While the square footage is small (or shall I say bijou?), Iā€™m excited by the challenge of styling a small space.

Cenrury Home Renos


MARCH 19, 2015

The earliest records we had been able to find for our house dated it back to 1914. So we started thinking, with the house being 100 years old, what better time to renovate?

snapshots + stories.


Whether I'm here in Hamilton or journeying to distant cities, I love capturing beauty I find in unexpected places along the way. Follow me on Instagram!
