New Kid on the Block

Welcome to my first Nook of Wellington post!

My name is Krista Illies. I'm in my mid-twenties and living in downtown Toronto with my boyfriend Marc after years of student apartments and couch surfing.

Throughout that time I’d dream of a place to call my own, where I could decorate and play hostess to my many loved ones... and now that I’ve got exactly that, the fun has just begun!

There's one problem though, and I'm sure that many of you out there have the same issue.  My love for furniture, design and all of the many related magazines and blogs out there leaves me with big ideas and lots of them... too many for a modest budget!

Here at NofW you can follow along as I try to to balance out what I want (okay, what we want) vs. what’s worth our while as we turn our little rental apartment into a home!

Check in to see the additions and changes we make to our space - both big and small - and bear with me as I daydream about the millions of styles and treasures out there that I've got filed under “one day...”

Stay tuned and thank you for your support as Nook of Wellington finds its feet!

Your rental looks so adorable from the outside already! I can't wait to see what you do with it!
