Your Urban Barn

Modern meets Chic – Meet December’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 Olivia aka @OliviaPatane_ on Instagram.


Could you tell us a little about yourself and your space?

My name is Olivia Patane and I reside in Port Hope, Ontario. I am 27 years old and I am currently in my final year of Naturopathic Medical School. My fiancé and I just moved into our first brand new home (with our two dogs and Bengal kitty!) this past summer and it has been so much fun furnishing and decorating our space!





The space featured in this photo, is our living room on the main floor close to our main entrance – feeling right at home as you walk in the door with our Urban Barn furniture. We use this space mostly when we entertain our guests – sipping on a cup of tea or a glass of wine while lounging on our armchairs or Fillmore sofa.

How would you describe your decorating style?

Each room in our home has a unique style – from Bohemian, to Industrial, to Modern/Shabby chic, etc. I am more of an eclectic; as I tend to break the rules, have a little fun and object my personality into my decorating. I like to incorporate a range of different periods, styles and trends into each room. This room in in particular has a modern-chic feel.


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

My favourite Urban Barn piece featured in this photo is the Maestro armchair. It exudes a polished charm while striking the perfect balance between comfort and style. It first caught my eye because I absolutely LOVE velvet – and the colour makes a bold statement as you enter the room.


To get your own custom armchair, with the option of hundreds of different fabrics, come and see us in-store, or visit
