A Warm Welcome Starts with the Front Door

This February I was excited to share some of my thoughts with Avenue Magazine on what makes a home welcoming and how a home can encourage conversation and connection. I had a lovely time with Käthe Lemon discussing front entrances and living spaces over a nice cup of tea (step one in achieving a cozy feeling). If you’d like some ideas on how to make your own home a little warmer and inviting take a look at the article here.

Summer home

This summer I spent some lovely time with my sister Anna in Finland. The last 4 summers she has been working on fixing up this lovely house (I helped her with a few things when I visited), but all in all she has done a huge job, mostly on her own. She is a very handy person and also a  great artist. You can see her work here www.annahackman.com. Enjoy my little story. 

Feature article in Avenue Magazine

I am so delighted with the feature of our house in the April 2014 issues of Avenue Magazine. It feels surreal to have your own home depicted so nicely. It was a long day of photography, but the crew from Avenue was so fun to work with and the end result is great. Here are the pages, and if they are hard to read you can download the Avenue reader for your tablet and read it there.

Here is also a clip from a recent CTV morning show I was on in regards to this article.
