Laurie and her husband, Pere, met while living in Paris, a modern day fairy tale that weaves a story about two people with an eye for design and knack for ambiance who set about to create a boutique décor and café in Andorra. The pair successfully ran two stores for over ten years before Laurie could no longer ignore the homesickness and the desire to be back in her native Canada. But Laurie had changed while living in Europe for over 14 years, and had developed a flair for European furnishings, style and design; a passion that fuels her new Canadian ventures.
Fast forward to 2015 when they decide to move back to Canada and combine their appreciation for vintage furnishings and artistic talent and open a store in Creemore Ontario. Their shop features carefully curated vintage décor and re-styled furniture from both Europe and Canada. Laurie is particularly proud of her “Paint Room” where she inpires cutomers to create their own heirloom using either milk or mineral paint from Canadian based Homestead House Paint Co. Laurie is happy to help customers by teaching workshops where students learn how traditional paint can transform their furniture. She welcomes custom work and commissions in her Creemore studio.
