#MyUrbanBarn – April Winner
Each month, we go through Instagram looking through all your beautiful photos with the #MyUrbanBarn tag, looking for someone to feature on our blog (and to send a $150 UB gift card). This month’s winner is Noelle aka @noelle.ryan on Instagram.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your space.
My name is Noelle, and I am a Toronto resident (former Vancouverite). I am a long-time home store addict (I just started an Ontario home store addicts Facebook group, in fact). My all-time favorite is Urban Barn. I recently started supporting my husband Stuart Nodell in staging for his real estate clients have started building an inventory, adding more and more Urban Barn pieces to my collection.
How would you describe your decorating style?
It is hard to pick, I kind of like them all. I tend to be drawn to coastal and contemporary styles, but my own home is a century home, so is more transitional. I am a big fan of natural elements, earthy colours and light and airy spaces.
Tell us about your favourite Urban Barn piece and why you love it
This is an impossible question! I have a few items on my wish list like the Mondo Chairs which are so stylish and comfortable. I love the earthy tones and the architectural beauty of the Rowe armchairs. The Andi Chair with the Lex-Confetti fabric is so fun, but still subtle and I've got some great colourful art pieces that would pair so well with those. From an accessory standpoint I use the Wilda Ficus Branch and the Kaye Shefflera Bush in vases all the time!
Which pieces were featured in your winning image?
Which Urban Barn location is your favourite to shop at and why?
I usually shop at the Leaside location, everyone there is so helpful, and I've been in more than one time in a last minute panic to find a specific decor piece to finish off a room, I've never walked away empty handed.
