A bit more about me to thank you for having read this far:
I have always loved interior decorating and design. I also have a passion for making things, cooking, traveling and reading. Today I understand the unifying thread between all these hobbies and what draws me to them - the beauty of creativity! Each showcases different ways of making our lives more creative and more beautiful and then sharing that beauty with others around us. This blog aims to do just that, showcase the beautiful things that surround us each and every day; showcase innovative design ideas I observe or strive to create through our very own DIY projects. It also aims to inspire creatives and non creatives alike!
I am currently learning the most I can about Interior Design thanks to the New York Institute of Art + Design (NYIAD). I am also a Fab Lab/makerspace enthusiast! I hold a degree in Nursing that over the years has served as a steppingstone towards a rich and varied career path. Today I work in the field of digital fabrication. Unconventional career choice ? Maybe to some, but for me I continue to see the common thread throughout my work experience. If you would like to know what lead me into the field of digital fabrication you can read more about that here. In 2018 I launched my very own design challenge; my défi Fab Lab Fab Design where interior design and decorating meets digital fabrication.
Living à la Smart - our story behind the initial name for the blog : I live in Montreal with my husband, Mr. S who at times takes his place behind the camera and shares his pics. Together we love exploring our city and seeing how far we can go in our 100% electric car, the Smart for two. Living à la Smart started off as a website documenting our adventures with driving a Smart electric car, and tips on living smart and creatively in a small space. It has grown so much since its beginning but one thing has stayed the same and continues to drive it forward; I love writing, I write about what I love and I love working and doing things with my greatest supporter ever...my travel companion, my coworker, my sidekick ... Mr. S!
Thank you for visiting!
