Congratulations to Lynsey F. of Calgary for March’s winning #MyUrbanBarn submission – this gorgeous living room. Here’s what Lynsey had to say about herself and her home:
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your space. Married to my best friend and the world’s most organized man, momma to the two sweetest beautiful little boys, stepmom to a brilliant & driven teenager, sister, auntie and friend. I put my whole heart into everything I do. Whether that is spending time with my husband, having a kitchen dance party with our boys or sharing a bottle of wine with a friend. For me decorating is a way to create a beautiful setting for the memories that I will create with loved ones. A space that we can all enjoy and be together in. I am also addicted to taking photos of our boys, Ever & Arlo, and a beautiful backdrop never hurts. My personal passions and where I love spending time is in fashion, photography and decorating. I’ve been known to throw a fairly over-the-top 1st birthday party complete with a pony for the kids and a wine bar for the mommas ;). This is a new home that we just settled into in December in Calgary and my husband and I have had a great time making it our own.
2. Describe your decorating style. I love mixing rustic with modern pieces. Mixing metals and adding pops of greens for springtime. I love a light airy feel to a room and my favourites right now are whites and greys with feminine touches of florals all while keeping things edgy with some sharp contrasting accessories and geometric prints . An oversized traditional coffee table in a natural wood with a cream plush rug, a handsome tufted rolled arm leather sofa is classic and never goes out of style, two soft grey chairs are visually gorgeous and add so many options when I want to switch the space up and the tufted poufs just make me happy; I couldn’t have just one. Some thoughtful accessories, throws and pillows to cozy up the space and an oversized mercury glass sphere floor lamp adds a touch of glam. Swoon.
3. Tell us about your favourite item and why you love it. The Flynn Pouf in Stormy Sea is my fav in this space as it adds a pop of colour, is a cozy place to rest your legs and it helped my son Arlo take some of his first steps as he glided it across our living room floor!!
We love the luxe textures and rich neutrals! To everyone else, keep the submissions coming! We choose a winner every month!
