The Decor Department - Tess' Bedroom

My sister Tess is one of those few lucky people who has known exactly what she wants to do with her life for as long as I can remember--a dance teacher and studio owner. And she shows that same confidence with her personal style and decor aesthetic. So when she asked my help turning her room into a more sophisticated space, I knew it would be easy working with someone who is so sure of herself. Coral, fuchsia and white were the requested colours, and she wanted to keep her orange feature wall. Let me tell you, this girl is not afraid of colour and it's fabulously refreshing. Sticking to a modest budget, we rolled up our sleeves and got creative. A few cans of white paint on the three walls, ceiling and trim brightened things up and we had fun painting wood letters (from the Dollar Store!) and making colourful pennants. Of course, signs of her passions are scattered throughout her room, from the pointe shoes and ballet barre, to her gorgeous tea cup collection. I can only hope the space properly reflects her bright and beautiful personality!

Things are definitely getting festive at Penney & Co.


The best way to spend a day off is with hot chocolate from Isabella's in Oshawa.

This is true with so many aspects of life, isn't it?
