At Home With Stefanie Hiebert

At Home With Stefanie HiebertOur next room tour guest is Stefanie Hiebert, who you may also know as one half of the Oh So Lovely duo. Stef is here to share her living/dining area.

Retro living room"My husband, Emery

and I live together in our 1,000-square-foot 1943 wartime home in the

French part of our city. When we first moved in, the house consisted of a

series of tiny rooms which we didn’t find to be an efficient use of

space so we decided to tear down the majority of the walls and give the

house a more open-concept feel. Thankfully, I have a lot of handy

men in my family, so we were able to do all of the renovation work

ourselves. It was quite a big job, and it took about 2 years to get

everything completed. But it was well worth all the work!"

Adorable hanging chair"When

it came time to decorate we decided that we wanted to stick to as much

original 1950s and 1960s decor as possible and go for a sort of

kitschy atomic era look. I have been passionate about vintage items for

years now, and I started my own collection when I was in my early teens

(I even bought my teak dining room table set when I was a teenager still

living at my parents place!). So we definitely had a lot to work with. I

have a big weakness for wood wall art, starburst clocks and unique

light fixtures, so we incorporated a lot of those components into our

decorating. As you can tell I'm also not afraid of color! I studied a

lot of old photographs from 1960’s home decor magazines as the

inspiration for choosing the wall colors. Our main goal was to create a

fun and happy space!"

Vintage room details

Bold dining room"I have lived in

this house for 5 years now, but it has actually been in my family for

almost 70 years. My grandparents first bought this house in the 1940s,

and it has been in my family ever since. My father grew up here, and my

parents even got married in the backyard. So there is a lot of history in

this house, and that makes it very special to me. It is a huge privilege

for me now to be able to call this place my home. This

space has changed countless times over the years… I can’t even begin

to tell you how many layers of wallpaper we peeled off the walls when we

began our renovation process. Probably one of the biggest changes is

the fact that the bedroom used to be where our living room now is!

That's pretty crazy to think about."

Beautiful home detailsRetro dining room"We love having lots

of friends and family over for dinner parties and game nights, so this is

probably the most used space in our home. We really enjoy having an

open-concept dining room and living room, because it creates a nice, cozy

feeling of togetherness and makes entertaining so much easier. We really

love our little retro space! :)"
