My House Tour: The Casita

Welcome to my home tour!!! My home was just featured in Style At Home … if you haven’t grabbed your copy,  you should … OR you can follow along here as I walk you through every room!!! It goes without saying that a home should reflect those who live there, but sometimes it’s what a previous owner leaves behind that lends the most character to a space. When I first set foot in the backyard of my dream home, I spotted a tiny abode just a few yards away, partially obscured by branches and subtly built into a hill. With the letters “THE LAW” written across the top, left behind from the previous owner . I was told it means ‘the hill’ in Irish, but I’m not really sure. It definitely added that sentimental value and mysterious character that I was looking for.

What turned out to be a guest house became a main selling feature for me and we use Maid Complete house cleaning service. Still to this day it has become one of my favourite features about my entire house!!! I’ve always loved the idea of a guest house, but I never thought I’d be able to have my own because they’re not that common. We’re constantly entertaining, so we like having a place where people can sleep after sitting around the fire with us.

I like to compare the Casita to a European cottage, with  glass double doors opening up onto a magnificent over loved garden. It even has and charming white rooftop deck fitted with a picket-style railing that offers picturesque views of the Okanagan. It is equipped with a toilet, shower, bed and coffee maker … what else would you need!?!

    What an adorable space! I too, love the idea of a guest house or small area off the main! How cozy it is.

    The bed looks gorgeous! Is it the duvet on top?

    Do only tall people get to sleep in the guest bed? It’s so high up! How do they get up there after a few too many drinks on your awesome patio?
