We are so happy to welcome Julie Williams Driemel to the blog today to share her lovely home with us!
"This space was a pretty good blank canvas when we bought it. While it's been home from day one, after two years worth of projects, it feels so us and has become super functional to fit our lifestyle. I love the bright windows with big mountain views as well as the mix of pretty little bits gathered from thrift stores, our travels, gifts, and special family hand-me-downs. Our decor is such a mishmash of items we've gathered over the years, which I love. Nearly everything has a story of some sort – clippings of plants that have been passed down through both our families for years and years, colourful vases that were collected for our wedding, the big long shelf in Morris' room is constructed from a set of retired vintage jumping skis my dad snatched from his local ski club, beach treasures we've gathered while visiting Adam's hometown on Vancouver Island, several pieces of art and wall hangings from family members [the tapestry above the mantle was a wedding gift to my great grandparents from family members in Sweden shortly after moving to Canada], the table and chairs are the same set that Adam grew up with, a vintage camera collection that my mother-in-law keeps adding to, the red mid-century rocking chair my mum bought for us…"
"The latest project around here has been Baby Mo's room – it's such a bright and cheery space. It was important to me that it be a part of the house that I would love hanging out in…I've been logging some serious hours in there since he was born back in January."
"Our home is small and modest, but it's all we need and I can't wait to watch our little family grow here. We are so lucky to live in the awesome community of Canmore, in the Canadian Rocky Mountains…the outdoor surroundings are a huge part of our lifestyle."
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, Julie! You can find more of Julie over on her website or blog! xo.
