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 Laneagh, aka LHS Decor on Instagram.
Tell us a little about yourself and your space
My name is Laneagh and I’ve had a passion for decorating spaces for as long as I can remember. When my boyfriend Kris and I moved into our new home in September he knew how excited I was to start furnishing and thankfully he is extremely supportive of my passion for decorating. He trusts my eye and allows me to turn our house into a home on the condition that everything is comfortable. We have several pieces in our home from Urban Barn because I love how everything is beautiful but comfortable at the same time. My goal has always been to have a very cozy home that feels like us and feels inviting to others.
How would you describe your decorating style?
I often get asked this question and I’m never sure how to answer it adequately. I think my decorating style is somewhere between modern farmhouse with a traditional twist. As I previously mentioned, it is really important to me that our house feels cozy while also being functional. I am a neutral lover but I do believe that all spaces need different textures, patterns and materials (wood, upholstery, etc…) to make them feel like home.
Tell us about your favorite Urban Barn piece and why you love it.
My favourite urban barn piece is the Simcoe chairs. I had my eye on them for months and went into the store probably about 15 times before finally buying them (the lovely ladies at UB Trainyards could attest to that). They are such beautiful chairs that would work in almost any space and I absolutely loved how comfortable they were without being clunky like most traditional chairs. I can’t recommend these chairs enough, if you’ve been debating getting them – think no more because they are worth every penny! *Another one of my favourite UB pieces is our Crosby console table. We looked for months for a narrow console table that would fit in our entrance and we couldn’t find anything until we came across the crosby piece. It’s only 8” wide and fits perfectly in our skinny hallway and is still very functional.
Which pieces were featured in your winning image
I love shopping at Urban Barn Trainyards for many reasons. The women who work there are extremely friendly and helpful, their product knowledge is amazing and the store is always so clean. I frequent the store quite often and I always feel like there are new displays and things moved around, which really helps envision things in different spaces.
