12 Days of Christmas - Day 7 - Shop Small For The Home

What gift guide from an Interior Designer wouldn't be complete without my list of local artisans who create my favourite products for the home??


This year I was introduced to a wonderful lady that we are lucky to have right here in our city. Leanne creates what she calls 'functional pottery'. These pieces will bring you joy and you will have her pottery for many years to come. Her work can be purchased on her website so go check it out now!.

It's no secret that I love a personalized gift! I think I have trauma from having an uncommon name and not being able to get anything off the shelf with my name on it in my childhood! Now, I am a junkie for anything and everything that is personal to the recipient. Calgary has a wonderful artist who commissions pieces of art. Janine does portraits of your children, your pet, your family, your home or anything else you can dream up! She works with you to create the perfect gift. I am personally partial to Janine's home portraits as gifts!

I know I already mentioned this wonderful family and company but I wanted to add them here because they have so many beautiful home products and furniture that are not part of their holiday collection. They have recently come out with a dollhouse that is stunning, a line of concrete products, kitchen and home accessories that range from cookbook stands, charcuterie boards, napkin rings, family calendars and of course their handmade furniture. Go check out their website to see all of their beautiful gift options!

I hope you shop as locally as possible this year! As a small business owner that runs both an interior design firm and a website design firm I can confidently say that every time you purchase a product or service from a small business you truly make our day, week or maybe even month! During these cray times let's all stick together! Please comment on my Instagram your small business so that readers will see the many other people and businesses they can support!

Join me tomorrow when I switch gears and chat all about holiday traditions! Thank you for reading. It means the world to me!
