Hey I’m Kim and thanks for stopping by at XO My Home. This is my creative space where I share some of my designs along with some tips and ideas that I hope will enable you to create your own beautiful space and perhaps, a little bit about our life here and there.
I am originally from Toronto, Canada but now currently embracing the beautiful sunshine in Florida with my husband and two boys.
If you were to ask my son what I do for a living, he would tell you that I make not so pretty houses beautiful. And although a lot of that is true, I am a firm believer that a house has to feel lived in to be a home. When I design a space, my main objective is to make it become a space that functions well for the people that use it on a daily basis. I often hear people say things like “oh my throw pillows are not to be sat on” or “don’t use that because it is only for display” and I’m going to tell you right now, that is not my style. Being a mom of two boys, my throw pillows spend most of their lifetime on the floor or squished in between various objects so they can hold up as a fort and that’s ok! My personal philosophy is that a home can be designed to be both comfortable and stylish. Sit on it, move it around and use it the way it was intended to be used but when properly in its place, it will add the texture and details that will enhance the style and esthetics of your home.
Well that’s me in a nutshell. I hope you enjoy the content and feel free to drop me a note and let me know your thougths!
