I hope you are enjoying your Valentines! I’ve rounded up my favourite uses of red and pink for interior and exterior design. I don’t usually love red, but this post might of changed my mind!

The entire home is being renovated, and we’ve come up with more functional layouts for the basement, main and second level.
