My #urbanbarn November 2022 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 Erin Hadley, aka @hadley_homedesign on Instagram.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your space.
I am 37 yrs old and I work under the provincial government, however my passion is in home design. I am the wife of a General Contractor and a mom of two amazing boys. We have built a few homes now together and I found my love of Interior Design within the process and have decided to pursue this further than just builds for us. Because we have two small boys, I gave up the bookkeeping for our small business and hired out. I went from having a home office to converting that space to a gym. But I still needed a desk/area to work at and not be in a separate room from the boys. This space is located directly beside our playroom in what was once a decorative alcove built out for design purposes.
How would you describe your decorating style?
I would say my design style is simplistic, functional and more on the contemporary side.
Tell us about your favourite Urban Barn piece and why you love it
I love so many UB pieces, but my favourite would have to be the Stellen Armchair. It is so comfy and functional. I find myself sitting in it more often than our Berg Sofa regularly and it coincidentally shares our son's name.
Which pieces were featured in your winning image?
I found the Jericho desk in Malta Pine and it was instant love. Not only was the size perfect but the simplistic design of wood and black metal was completely on point with our overall interior look. Then in the Kamloops store they had paired it with the Jerusha Chair, and it was love at first sight. I added the Haywood Accent Rug and it was complete.
Which Urban Barn location is your favourite to shop at and why?
Kamloops has been my favourite Urban Barn to shop at. The staff are always helpful, knowledgeable and encouraging.
