Hello and welcome!


When it comes to decorating and designing a home, no design scheme can be created solo. It is all about collaboration and teamwork, where the client holds centre stage, right at its heart! My focus and what drives each home decor project I work on is to create a beautiful space that tells a story.


I am a Montreal based interior decorator and a storyteller at heart who loves writing about home decor ideas, design inspiration and DIY crafts for the home.

Through each blog post I write my goal is to inspire design enthusiasts to think outside the box and implement even small changes that will contribute towards making their home feel like home, as they fall in love with it all over again.

A bit more about me to thank you for having read this far: 

A graduate from the New York Institute of Art + Design (NYIAD), Interior Design Course. I have always loved interior decorating and design.


I also have a passion for making things, cooking, traveling and reading. I love road trips especially if they bring me to find vintage treasures, roaming store to store with a coffee in my hand! More specifically .... espresso! 

I did a barista training a couple of years back, and now use these skills daily to craft various espresso based drinks with my home barista set-up!

A bit of history:

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!
