WELCOME TO MY HOME: Nestled in the peaceful, tree-lined neighbourhood of Dunbar is my charming heritage home, complete with luscious green space and stylish black stucco exterior, and welcoming restored hand crafted entry door. Over the years, my 1920s three-story house has been transformed into an elegant Bed and Breakfast retreat. An eclectic mix of furnishings is used throughout-new contemporary pieces contrast the inherited furniture enjoying a second life. The overall effect is visually appealing, blending styles and textures.
