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 Michelle aka MichelleBinette.Design on Instagram.


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

I’m a Toronto-based interior decorator with a down-to-earth approach to decorating and I take pride in creating a fun experience for all my clients.


This space was the master bedroom for a client of mine that wanted to transform her boring space into a relaxing retreat! It was one of the first projects I ever did, after decided to change careers to finally follow my passion, so this space will always hold a special place in my heart.


How would you describe your decorating style?

I’d say my decorating style is clean, fresh and livable. I’ve been really loving the California modern vibe, white walls contrasted with beautiful warm wood tones, great textures and pops of colour!


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

A piece I saw and loved earlier this week was the XIAN CABINET – DEEP SEA, it’s such a great statement piece, turns a functional cabinet into art. So beautiful! Another one I really loved is the SHINO TALL CABINET, I selected the creamy coloured option for a clients bedroom, and I love that it has a vintage feel.

Which pieces were featured in your winning image?

The piece featured in this image is the KIRI CAPIZ PENDANT LAMP and the ANNA PANELS in grey. I love this light fixture so much, it is simple but still a great statement in the room, it was the perfect fixture for the space. The hexagons on the drum mimicked the shape of the alcove which was a nice detail. The drapes added a subtle pattern into the space without being overpowering, allowing the headboard to be the star.

Where did you do most of your shopping?

I do a lot of my accessory shopped at Urban Barn, it’s got great vases and if I’m opting for retail drapery this is one of the first places I look to find the perfect drapes!
