kids help phone holiday house sneak peek

Last week was a flurry of activity over here at Nyla Free Designs. If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to, I spent all last week, along with a team of people transforming a historic Calgary home for the Kids Help Phone Homes for the Holidays house tour that happened this past weekend. The architectural details in this home are stunning. Arts and crafts in style, this grand home is warm and welcoming. I can’t wait for you to see inside.

On Friday a scout from Western Living Magazine came by to see the home as they were considering it for their 2012 holiday issue and I’m thrilled to say they decided to photograph it. We have delayed take down by one day and I’ll be spending today styling and helping with the photo shoot. Very excited!

In the meantime I made sure it was ok to share close up shots of a few areas of the home. (I can’t give it all away now can I?)

I’m afraid that’s all for now. You’ll have to hang on for Western Living’s holiday issue out November 2012.

Special thanks to the following people who helped with set up. Your time and efforts in helping pull this all together is appreciated more than you know. Cory, Cathy, Libby, Marnie, Pat, Donna, Rosalind, Nancy, Sharon, thank you all!!

A huge thank you to the suppliers who donated, lent or provided services for the decor. Canadian Tire MacLeod Trail South, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Kore Onsite, Reid’s on 17th, The Flower Group, JVR Landscaping. I am so grateful for your generosity of product and time. Many of you are a huge part of my business on a regular basis and I can not thank you enough for the help you have given me.

To the Kids Help Phone coordinators and volunteers, thank you for inviting me to be apart of this wonderful experience. I could not have asked for a better home. And to the lovely homeowner, thank you for being so gracious. It was a pleasure decorating your home for the holidays.
