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 Samantha, aka Samantha Vince Design on Instagram.
How would you describe your decorating style?
The space you see is actually a space I designed for a client. They wanted to take a cookie cutter condo and add texture and warmth. They love water so I used that as my starting point for this design.
I would describe my style with a term I have coined called “cottage chic”. I love starting with a clean neutral palette and then layering in lots of texture using as many natural materials as I can. I also believe in keeping the integrity of the space by working around it rather than against it. It’s wonderful to take an old farmhouse and refinish the existing 100 year old floors and exposed beams and then add a polished modern kitchen.
Tell us about your favorite Urban Barn piece and why you love it.
I love so many of the UB products I don’t know where to begin. I constantly steer my clients to UB for the main pieces. The couches are extremely comfortable, durable, very well priced and there is something for every style and need. My favourites are the Ryerson, and Reynolds and Savoy in the Jasper Walnut. My favourite decor items are the three mirrors you see in the winning photo in both the black and the gold, game changer on any wall.
- Frances Wall Mirror Set – Black
- Bayview Wall Mirror
- Mondo Chair – Uno Indigo
- Azura Wall Art
- Mendel Wall Clock
- Clooney Toss
- Levine Rug – Blue
- Vanna Vases
- Christina Throw
Which Urban Barn location is your favourite to shop at and why?
Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC. I am so lucky to have this UB close by. The staff is incredible, from the manager Donna along with Mindy, Tess and Maria. The store is spotless, and well thought out.
