A Good Mix


I shoot a lot of homes, but my favourites are always the ones where the homeowners are not afraid to display the things they love, and that mean something to them.  Sami Wall's home is just that. I met Sami at a sewing class and, while chatting over our sewing machines, I learned that she's an interior designer. Here's a little peek inside her townhouse she shares with her husband and adorable dog (and a baby on the way!).








What do you think of Sami's place? I love the way she arranges things, and how they've mixed vintage with new along with family treasures. Let me know what you think!

Have a lovely day. Back soon.

What a great space--and a great story about how you met! I especially love the lamp next to her sofa. Actually, I like her bedside lamps, too! :)

I love all the little details. What a beautiful, bright space!

I love it particularly because it doesn't look like an Interior Designer lives there (compliment). Nothing worse to me than a "bought" look. It is refreshingly real.
