"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

I couldn't be happier to be launching my new website and taking my business to the next level. My new website Andrea Johnson Design will be up and running as of March 30 and I'm looking forward to sharing it with all of you.
Anthropologie is coming to the westcoast! It's one of my favourite go to stores for all things fashionable and I know all of my fellow westcoasters are just as excited as I am. It will be opening in May on South Granville in Vancouver. Yeah!!
Anyone tune in to see the fab basement on Sarah 101? I loved the fabric choices for the drapes, chairs and other accents. It was a great use of space and a clever idea on how she used shelving units to divide the different zones.
I am constantly on the lookout for all sorts of things that make a space beautiful. Everything from large pieces of furniture to the perfect accessories and along the way I find myself becoming attached to some of these things. I keep a file hoping that a space will come along that perfectly suits whatever it is I'm dying to use! I guess you could call it an occupational hazard. Am I the only one who becomes attached to things like wallpaper, lighting and coffee tables? These are some of my recent obsessions on the waiting list:)
I am in need of some new shoes and I have been busy doing some online shopping. It is a dangerous activity for me but you just can't beat the convenience. I am crazy about them and can't wait for their arrival!
I am a wife, mother, and interior decorator who is obsessed with anything and everything involving home decorating and design. This has been a passion for as long as I can remember. I am thrilled to be sharing projects and things that inspire me right here from my living room in South Surrey, BC Canada
