At Home With Stefanie Hiebert

At Home With Stefanie HiebertOur next room tour guest is Stefanie Hiebert, who you may also know as one half of the Oh So Lovely duo. Stef is here to share her living/dining area. Retro living room"My husband, Emery and I live together in our 1,000-square-foot 1943 wartime home in the French part of our city. When we first moved in, the house consisted of a series of tiny rooms which we didn’t find to be an efficient use of space so we decided to tear down the majority of the walls and give the house a more open-concept feel. Thankfully, I have a lot of handy men in my family, so we were able to do all of the renovation work ourselves. It was quite a big job, and it took about 2 years to get everything completed. But it was well worth all the work!" Adorable hanging chair"When it came time to decorate we decided that we wanted to stick to as much original 1950s and 1960s decor as possible and go for a sort of kitschy atomic era look. I have been passionate about vintage items for years now, and I started my own collection when I was in my early teens (I even bought my teak dining room table set when I was a teenager still living at my parents place!). So we definitely had a lot to work with. I have a big weakness for wood wall art, starburst clocks and unique light fixtures, so we incorporated a lot of those components into our decorating. As you can tell I'm also not afraid of color! I studied a lot of old photographs from 1960’s home decor magazines as the inspiration for choosing the wall colors. Our main goal was to create a fun and happy space!" Vintage room details Bold dining room"I have lived in this house for 5 years now, but it has actually been in my family for almost 70 years. My grandparents first bought this house in the 1940s, and it has been in my family ever since. My father grew up here, and my parents even got married in the backyard. So there is a lot of history in this house, and that makes it very special to me. It is a huge privilege for me now to be able to call this place my home. This space has changed countless times over the years... I can’t even begin to tell you how many layers of wallpaper we peeled off the walls when we began our renovation process. Probably one of the biggest changes is the fact that the bedroom used to be where our living room now is! That's pretty crazy to think about." Beautiful home detailsRetro dining room"We love having lots of friends and family over for dinner parties and game nights, so this is probably the most used space in our home. We really enjoy having an open-concept dining room and living room, because it creates a nice, cozy feeling of togetherness and makes entertaining so much easier. We really love our little retro space! :)" At Home With Stefanie Hiebert via A Beautiful MessThanks so much for sharing your space with us, Stef!
