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 Martina, aka Unafflicted Style on Instagram.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your space.
I’m a 7th grade teacher, currently taking my Masters in Education. Besides constantly styling my house, my favourite hobby is travel. I live with my husband in a small town on the outskirts of Whitby called Brooklin, it’s a cute little bedroom community. Our home was a new build when we bought in 2011 and we have done a few little renovations. We have four bedrooms so we are currently debating on the fourth bedroom converting into a giant closet. The pictures are of our dining room. We enjoy entertaining whenever possible. I either have family or friends as house guests regularly and we love to cook and make a fancy sit down dinner.
How would you describe your decorating style?
My decorating style transitions between modern and contemporary. We like a lot of neutrals, along with white and mixed metals. I may or may not have a blanket obsession.
Tell us about your favorite Urban Barn piece and why you love it.
Choosing my favourite Urban Barn piece is difficult. We love all of the pieces, but it might have to be the Nixon Custom Sofa we bought for our renovated TV room. It’s so modern and the deep cushions are perfect for cozy snuggling.

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