Tulips and some morning sun make me so excited for spring 🌷

Mexico vibes 🌵 i’m very lucky to have a super talented artist aunt that decided to move to mexico and build the most beautiful villa and gardens. she is a constant source of inspiration and i can only hope to master the art of using colours as tastefully as her. environment does play a huge part in the design and mexico is definitely a lush land which presents the opportunity to play with colours beautifully. 📸 @jptgibson

We reviewed some pretty amazing kitchens we have in the works with our team this week. so excited for our projects this year!! 😬 in the meantime, we’re flashing back to our orleans kitchen project! runner from @ldshoppe | cabinetry from @instakitchenguy 👌🏻 | side-note: this pendant is discontinued but we have one in stock available and it is discounted! msg the @ldshoppe team if interested! 🙌🏻

I have some news regarding the rug saga... the bad news: the new rug didn’t work as i wanted in the master bedroom. which leads me to the good news: the new one looks amazing in the living room (don’t you agree?!) i love how it adds color while still pulling out the neutral colors in my decor. i think that i didn’t work in the master because of the green accent wall. it was way too much color for my neutral heart. buuut, the old living room one looks amazing in the master bedroom. i love how both spaces turned out and that’s what matters at the end. i still have a couple of things to finish in the bedroom and then i will share it with you guys! 💕 shop your screenshot of this pic with the shopping app #liketkit #ltkhome .home

We've been waiting for months to reveal the kitchen in #theoliverproject. the boutique-style kitchen has the west of main touch. natural elements, a rich colour palette and beautiful gold accents to add that feeling of warmth and touch of glam. if you don't have any plans this weekend you should definitely go check out the oliver model by @eqhomes.ottawa and let us know what you think of the green kitchen?⠀

Wishing a very happy birthday to our design manager grace 🥳! 5 years ago she emailed us out of the blue and basically said “you guys have a newborn baby and running your own business, need any help!?”. turns out we really did, ha! after interning for a short while she became our first employee. fast forward half a decade and she’s now our design team manager and oversees the execution of all our design projects. we show our faces on here a lot but there are plenty more behind the scenes that make leclair decor inc. happen and grace has been an integral part of our success over the years. happy bday!! 🥳

Hey everyone, happy sunday! so funny story.. i decided to get my car all set up with harper’s car seat, so we are ready to go when she decides to make her debut, aaaannnnd... it doesn’t fit 😂. kind of a problem! i have a nissan juke that i’ve loved driving for the past 6 years, and we got the car seat based on nissans recommendations. however it didn’t quite work out. now the car seat fit... if the front seats are completely scooted up, leaving zero space for your legs 😂. my husband is 6’ and i’m 5’3”... didn’t work for me and definitely did not work for him! but for now it fits in his prius just fine. now can we be a 1 car family? probably not.. but it was pretty hysterical seeing us try to clown car ourselves in! now we have to list my little clown car and start hunting for something more practical and take on a car payment! 🤡 🚗

The living room refresh is pretty much complete!! i’m so in love with it, i can’t put it into words. if you saw my stories, i had been looking for wall baskets to put on the right side of the wall and besides one large one i found @homegoods, i was having trouble find others i liked. i took a trip to @hobbylobby yesterday and found a wood hanging plant holder and realized i could use the wood pieces as wall decor. sometimes you have to repurpose or diy something to get the exact look you want. overall this room feels warm, cozy, with a hint of color and plenty of texture. it’s exactly what i was imagined in my head. i hope you love it as much as i do! .

Rico is killing it on the framing. almost done. lenny killed it with the plumbing and back filled the trenches. concrete gets poured throughout the entire house this week (plumbing backfill, entire main floor gets raised 2 inches, and a 20 inch step gets poured into the sunken living room). electrical rewire begins tomorrow morning, too. #tucson #arizona #arizonalife #ranch #ranchhouse #modernranch #rushranch #equine #barn #desertlife #horses #remodel #howwedwell #homesweethome #homesofinstagram #teamworkmakesthedreamwork

Its almost time!! ok, here is the 411:
-jewelry goes live at 8:30pm est tomorrow (mon, feb 24th) on my website.
-designs typically sell out within 1-10 minutes, so you must be on time!! -i hear that if you create an account beforehand, you can check out without having to type in all of your shipping info. -putting something in your bag does not guarantee it is yours. someone can s****h it out, if they are faster. - not trying to scare you😂, but i usually get angry😡emails at about 8:50 saying everything is gone. so i want you to be very informed!
- being on my e-mail list (you can do that on my website, scroll to bottom of page) gets you 15 min of early access to shop. make sure you get the confirmation e-mail and confirm it (sometimes it goes into the junk/spam folder).
- there is the option for canadian shipping and worldwide shipping. you will see it in each jewelry listing description. click on it and add it to your bag. - once you have your fab earrings, tag me!! i love sharing you wearing them💗. ok, i think thats it! any questions?? anything at all?? post em in the comments below :). .
casi es la hora!! ok, aquí está la info:
-aretes lanzan a las 20:30hs mañana (lunes, 24 de febrero)
-los diseños generalmente se agotan en 1-10 minutos, asi que debes llegar a tiempo!
-oí que si creas una cuenta de antemano, podes pagar sin tener que escribir toda su información de envío.
-poner algo en tu bolso no garantiza que sea tuyo. alguien mas rapido puede arrebatarlo.
- no quiero asustarte😂, pero generalmente me envian emails de enojo a las 8:50 diciendo que no hay mas nada. asi que quiero que estés muy informada!
- existe la opción de envíos internacionales. está en la descripción de cada listado de aretes. hacé clic en él y agréguelo a tu bolso.
- una vez que tengas tus aros fabulosos, etiquetame!! me encanta compartir tus fotos con copper corners.

I have a feeling that this coffee bar is going to get a workout over the next couple of months! here’s what’s on the agenda... makeover @theheadroomgp bathrooms in a weekend, tile a bathroom for russel’s brother (we’ll show you soon!), and finish the staircase. plus all of the small projects in between. and keeping three kids alive. who else is looking down the barrel of a crazy few weeks or months?! or will you just be living vicariously through us 😂😂. 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️ #lovecreatecelebrate

What is your favourite children’s book?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
mikaeel loves to read. while in sunny cali he asked his phoopi jaan (aunty) @caligirldoc to read one of his fav books! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this book “a is for ankle” takes kids through a journey of the alphabet while teaching them about their different body parts. and tbh i learned a few things too.. like what is a uvula 👄 and o**l cavity 🦷??? 🤷🏽‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
head over to my stories to see dr erum sethi do a live reading for mikaeel! it’s available on amazon or dm me for links. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hi. 👋🏻 i’m meghan and i’m so happy you’re here. here are 10 fun facts about me.
1. apparently i’m either not that interesting- or i just s**k at this game- so matt (my husband) gave me 8 of the 10 of these. can you guess which ones? 😉

2. we’ve purchased and renovated three homes. matt says this one is not for sale. 🏡 🏡 🏡
3. i’m in tech sales. i love, love, love it. i also make a commission here, if you use my links to shop my home! check out the link in my bio to shop. (see, always selling 😉). 4. i know all of the words to almost any disney song. 🎶
5. almost any time i find a favorite item on a menu the restaurant gets rid of it. @mcdonalds i’m still upset about the snack wrap.
6. i love hallmark holiday movies so much that my husband bought me a screenwriting class so i could write one.
7. i prefer winter over summer. yeah you read that right. ❄️ 8. went to college in new york city, london and minneapolis. (can you tell i’m running out of fun facts?) lame.

9. my son ford, he’s 3, and is the love of my life.
10. i started #halfwaytoperfect because we were renovating a house (again) and my number one source of inspiration (and favorite place to go for inspiration) is @instagram! i thought, maybe i could be a part of contributing to that? i was also going through a particularly difficult time. i had no idea how much love and support i would receive here. you have no idea how much your friendship, encouragement and support has meant to me. i don’t know what else to say but.... thank you. —————————————————-

I get a lot of questions about my plants. i have over 50 (yes, you read that right 😳) living plants in our home, & i still manage to come home with new ones too frequently. one of my favorite groups of plants to grow is ferns. this is harry potter- named for his hairy “feet” & the fact that he grows in a pot. he was my first rabbit’s foot fern, definitely the house favorite & the most asked about when people come to visit. ferns are unique because, like mosses, they are nonseed plants. they also get most of their water from their fronds & rhizomes, so took keep them happy, i make sure to mist them at least once a week. not only is this guy super cool, but he also removes formaldehyde, benzene, toluene and trichloroethylene from the air! 🌿✨


do you have a favorite house plant??? i’d love to know 😍

Today, we picked up the most amazing antique east lake headboard and footboard that i found during a multi-hour binge on @facebookmarketplace (i went deep). the folks selling it have had it since the 70s when they bought it at an antique shop in venice beach. i’m so happy that it made its way across the united states so that i could find it within a reasonable radius, haha. and i spent $135 dollars 🤪
swipe for a photo taken about an hour earlier. this guest bedroom was actual garbage and it looked like squatters were living here 😂.
oh, and i will gladly be accepting regrets and apologies from all of you that voted “ew, david” on this headboard when i posted it in a poll in my stories. it’s objectively the definition of perfection. 🥳 (as is schitt’s creek)

It’s hard to believe that the last time our family walked our lot it was dirt. that has been the hardest part about this building process, not being there. in two weeks we leave a state that we’ve welcomed 3 out of 5 of our babies home to. we’re saying bye to my parents and friends that we consider family. so many uncertainties in our future but i know god has big plans for us. ❤️

In less than a month, we will be welcoming the spring season, and we want to know, are you team real or team silk flowers? 🌸
we've certainly used both in our seasonal decor, but we tend to lean towards team real, because it just doesn't get better than the natural colors, unique textures and soft scents of the real thing.✨
but, because the lifespan of cut floral is significantly shorter than that of silk floral, try this #hostfulhack at your next gathering. send your guests home with their own mini arrangement as a favor. arrange them in small clear vases if you have some on hand (you can find them at the dollar store if you don’t), or dry the stems and wrap them in kraft or tissue paper as you would seen done at the farmer's market. for an added touch, tie together with ribbon or twine and send your guests home with a beautiful reminder of your time together. undoubtedly, you'll be #thehostesswiththemostest. 💛 #hostfulatheart #springdecor #springflorals #floralarrangement #favors
so, tell us below 👇🏻 team real or team silk? 🌷

// it's been a busy past couple of weeks around here and i am so happy to say our attic, gingerbread painting, new roof (and ridge venting) is complete! the yard is cleaned up from all mess and it feels like normal again! all in time for windows to begin after the weekend and the new metal flashing and soffits to be installed the week after. our house is cooler already with the ridge venting and it's also not leaking inside our guest bedroom when it rains! all of our contractors, mitch included and family/friends that have helped along the way did such an incredible job. we are so thankful as it certainly took a village! the new white flashing/soffits will finish off our roof nicely and make it pop! that, plus our new windows in the next couple of weeks and we are done renos for this year! i can't believe all of the major projects needed around here will be completed this summer, so hard to believe! also the day i can c***k a window around here.
(all the photos are from different days and lighting, but the roof colour is a mix of dark blacks! the first three photos are of the completed roof)

// the past two weeks have been really busy around here! our attic is finished being insulated and our roof is currently underway. what is complete though are our new concrete window sills! most of the original wood ones were rotted out and one actually had an ant farm in it. all that white flashing is gone which is lovely and gives the house a cleaner ants aren't interested in concrete. (the windows look odd against some of the sills but we aren't finishing those touch ups because they are being replaced soon and those storm windows are coming down).
this past weekend when our sills were being finished up, mitch re painted our gingerbread millwork white again. we have four large pieces and they were in desperate need of some tlc. the before photos don't show how rough of shape they were in. mitch sanded them down and gave them two coats of exterior semi-gloss white oil paint. this wasn't a planned project for this year but since we had a lift rented it made sense to get done ✅ thank you babe! our roof will be finished this week hopefully and then our metal soffits and flashing will be going up next week (all of our old stuff is torn down already). also, this has been one dirty and messy renovation. lots of clean up every day and night but so worth it! i like a clean property what can i say 🙄🤗

// our homemade wood butter for utensils and cutting boards! i've been neglecting ours for years but really want them to last so i decided to start conditioning them after use! i found this simple recipe that made an abundance. now to be intentional with it!
1. 1 part bees wax to 3.5 parts coconut oil
2. on medium/low, use a double broiler or smaller p*t inside a larger one to melt both together. stir often.
3. pour into a jar and seal it once cooled!

// june is fast approaching and so are some major renovations here at gable oaks. firstly, our attic is going to be vented and insullated! yay for lower heating bills this winter. this requires taking a portion of the roof off around the perimeter, so this is happening the week before our new roof is installed. we are going with a dark black shingle for our new roof. again, so excited for no more leaks! the new soffits and flashing will be next as our current metal is destroyed and very old. lastly will be our windows. as mentioned before, our interior big wood original trim/frames is of course staying but our windows are being replaced. they will replicate a similar look and will hold up much better for our harsh winters. our wood windows took a beating beyond repair over the last century. i will miss them terribly but am really looking forward to no rot, mold or ice build up on either side in the winter. we can't even see out of them in the winter and loose a lot of heat through them with our extreme temperature swings as well. also, we will be able to open them finally and hear the sounds of life outside! along with our window project, which we are hiring out to @wigstonbros, our mason friend will be replacing our rotted wood sills with concrete ones. he has already started making them and they look amazing! he will also be repairing the brick work around the sills from installation. at some point during all of this, mitch is going to be repainting all four gingerbread wood pieces on the house. we will have a lift rented for our metal work guys so we are going to rent it a bit longer to get them painted. they will be rough sanded and then painted with an exterior white oil based paint to freshen them up!

// last weekend was a busy one...and messy! between two children's birthday parties to attend and mitch being on call, we still managed to install our new door on the upstairs balcony! @mitchanley did an incredible job and honestly seemed to work non stop between the couple of calls he had to attend in downtown toronto. he was off call monday though, and we got to spend time all together not doing renos. honestly, even when renos are in progress, we are all still together and having fun along the way. it's just a different type of hangout! our little girl loves to be involved and watch us work and help where she can, which is lovely.
so! our old door that was previously here was rotting out due to our harsh winters and temperature changes (it was wood and beautiful, but well past its prime). it needed to be replaced so we ordered the same door we bought for our mudroom entrance. the colour and style is period but it is fiberglass and not wood. this is truly a great option for our harsh winters. mitch tried to salvage the wood step but it was also to far gone so we replaced it with another pressure treated wood step instead. the outside white original trim still needs to be sanded and painted but we just love it! so much detail. we still need to mortar in some areas on the outside as well as caulk. the interior still needs trim but the majority of the work is done! we will probably finish it within the next couple of weeks. this project was crazy and complicated at times, involving a chain saw to the side of our house...but needless to say mitch did a great job!

// so excited about light! i love waking up and it not be dark outside. that, and the birds chirping and soon to be sun out into the evening...yes! we are in our fifth year in this home and i'm excited for another season of building up our perennial gardens and vegetable garden. little by little and row by row! we are hoping to have those huge beautifully maintained gardens that people slow down for, know what i'm saying? i love working on them, doing our rounds together, and seeing them fill in over the years as we add more and more. 🌸

// here is our kitchen ceiling/new colour project from finished to the beginning (minus our new crown molding). it's a dark rainy day so it was a tad difficult to get a great photograph, but here it is! it took us over a year to choose a fixture. we really take our time with most things and don't jump to decisions quick, so we plan well in advance! that way if we change our minds or design ideas change, we dont have to purchase something twice and we are darn sure we love it. we went back and forth on fixtures as well as placement for a long time. there was also the p*t light conversation. we ended up centering our main light instead of putting something different over the peninciala. i really didn't want to highlight the peinciallia and a centre fixture offered a lot more options and ended up making more sense. both the p*t lights and main light are on seperate dimmers so there are lots of mood lighting options in this kitchen! originally i wanted a more period design fixture but we just couldn't agree on any we both loved. we found this simple, large chandelier that we both ended up loving and it offers the lighting we want in here!
i want to reference the two upper cabinets we are removing next year. the open cabinet above the sink and the microwave/cabinet ansamble above the stove are coming down! we aren't replacing the microwave...never really liked them, so she'll be gone!
i also want to mention that after next year's phase three is done with the cabinet refinishing, the following year is countertops, sink and backsplash! we are undecided on counter tops, i'm on the hunt for an antique cast iron sink and that backsplash is coming down! if you find an antique double sink with a backsplash (with or without a drain board) let me know ;)! that one is going to take some time to find.

// we officially finished painting our kitchen! we went with white dove by benjamin moore and had it lightened by 50%. it is very bright and neutral in here now. i also spent a week sprucing up all of the trim/frames and wainscoting with a fresh coat of white paint again. our ceiling project was phase two of this kitchen renovation and it is near completion (phase one was restoring our hardwood floors which mitch finished in january). over the last two days we have installed our p*t lights and main center light. all the lighting is finished and it looks fantastic! the p*t lights look better than i thought! as i've mentioned before, two of us live here and have to love this house, so mitch won the p*t light battle! he did an incredible job though which doesn't surprise me. our crown molding is all that remains for this phase and will probably be done next month. we will revisit the kitchen project starting phase three next spring which includes refinishing and painting our cabinets with a new colour as well as new hardware. we will also be removing two upper cabinets and installing a vented range for our stove. slowly but surely it is coming together! and more importantly...stress free and on a budget! i will post more photos soon of the project from start to finish including our new lighting. in the meantime, between now and phase three, we are going to re install our barnboard shelving which is original to the house. i love having these peices inside to look at and be functional as they are a century old and incredibly unique. we are going to plane them down, clear coat them and move them to different locations. two of them will be hung above our kitchen table and the other above our fridge to house a bunch of plants!

// lots happening over here this summer at gable oaks! other than finishing our kitchen ceiling project, we are re doing our roof, insulating our attic, replacing our windows (including the mudroom), and replacing our upstairs balcony door. here are our reasons for doing all of this. first off, our roof is over 60 years old - which is no problem!...if it had no problems. it is the second roof the house has had and is metal, with a ton of tar on top of it instead of paint. it has pit rust everywhere and is down to the wood in some areas. and yes it does leak in one area...our guest bedroom. it lasted a long time but it's time to replace it as well as all the soffits and flashing on the house. insulating our attic at the same time makes sense because it's relatively inexpensive and mitch will already be up there in the territory. also, we have no insulation up there now and we live in canada. there is still reminence of what it used to be "insulated" with though! - hundreds of tiny peices of cut up leather! moving onto our windows and upstairs door....this is sort of a sore spot. as much as i love the look of them, love that they are original and love that they have lasted as long as they have...they really aren't restorable. even if they were, both parties would have to be on board for that, which probably wouldn't happen for a few reasons. all of our windows are currently sealed shut and literally haven't been opened in five years since we bought the house because they are all covered with tons of layers of lead paint which chips/dusts off and goes airborne if slid up and down - not healthy to inhale. all of our windows are rotting in some form or fashion and many of them are broken. some of them have dry rot, and all of them have moisture related mold. i have seen original windows last and look incredible (seriously incredible and never painted)...if properly cared for and maintenanced since the beginning, and these just haven't. i'm sure some owners tried to take care of them but by the time we moved in, they were too far gone. the interior original huge window frames and cills are staying of course!
