Your Urban Barn

Custom Comfort – August’s #myurbanbarn Winner

Each month, we go through Instagram looking through all of your beautiful photos with the #MyUrbanBarn tag, looking for someone to feature on our blog (and to send a $150 UB gift card). This month’s winner is Lianna, aka Mackie Design and Build on Instagram.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your space?
I am a mom of two, construction wife and help run our busy construction company; Mackie Homes. I run the social channels, help on the admin front and put together the design selections for our spec home builds and we just finished building our family home in rural Ottawa.

How would you describe your decorating style?

I would call my design style transitional with an emphasis on function and there might be a hint of modern farmhouse in there. The design of our home had to work for our family with two children under five years old.

Tell us about your favourite Urban Barn piece and why you love it.

This room had to function for our family’s downtime, an entertaining hub and a space we can relax and catch up hence the matching Nixon sofas facing each other to allow for conversation. We use our Tarek ottomans as foot stools, as extra seating and the kids love to move them around the room to find their perfect spot to sit and watch their favourite shows.

Which pieces were featured in your winning image?

It was fun to put together our main living space with two custom Nixon sofas in Claro Charcoal, the Townsend rug, a few throw pillows and of course the Tarek Ottomans all from Urban Barn.

Which Urban Barn location is your favourite to shop at and why?

The space designed with the help of Kalli at the Stittsville location (my local store) – she was fantastic to work with.
