I like to try new recipes and my mom likes to shop for new furniture and redecorate.

Yet we get along!!

She is an amazing woman in many ways. She is on top of every trend-beauty, fashion or decorating (not food trends though..she leaves that to me).

I am always in awe when I visit Ottawa as she has been in the process of redecorating the condo for the last year (for the 3rd time in 30 years).

Here’s what the condo now looks like. Isn’t it awesome. I could never accomplish what she does – she really does think of every detail. I have to say that my mom has great taste but she has used the same decorator (Donna Corey from Kiss Interiors) for the last 30 years (she was her first client). Donna helps with sources and confirms what my mom selects is “right” and guides her with the details. Clearly they have a good working relationship between decorator and client.

I love this painting...

I have "fireplace" envy.

A cheery family room.

PS did I mention my mom was 72 years old? Pretty neat eh?

    Your Mom is awesome!
    I love the contrasting dining chairs and sense of colour throughout.

    These rooms are beautifully put together and stylish and ” full of life”
    just like your Mom.

    Your mom has great taste in home fashion. And good for her for changing it up regularly. The place looks like it has great bones. I love the Philippe Stark ghost chairs and the Sara Caracristi painting!
