Adding Prinku to Your Home this Season

Home & DIY
5

Love at first sight is the only way to really describe how I feel about the style of Olga Prinku. I was first introduced to Olga when she sent me a very kind email a couple months back asking me about my blog and possibly collaborating. I knew that I was going to be very busy close to the holidays and didn’t want to commit to something (like cleaning, styling, decorating my home) all before the big horrah of the holidays. When I asked Olga if she wanted to style her products in her own home to share with me I was beyond impressed with the outcome.

I think that we are a lot alike, Olga and I, we are both graphic designers and very much enjoy interior design (though she just might be a whole lot more talented then me in that area). Just because I enjoy it doesn’t mean that my home looks like this (ha!). A couple years ago Olga tried to draw from her experience working on layouts for a home styling magazine, while she renovated her own home.

Living in Northern England, Olga took a career break just after she had her little boy, this is when she learned how to crochet and knit. Now that her son is starting school, Olga is seeing if she can turn her craft making into a business. With a passion for working with wool and an incredible creative eye Olga has turned her creations into the most gorgeous home decor items for the holidays.

I’m a trained graphic designer and I used to work on layouts for a home styling magazine. I tried to draw some tips from that experience when my husband and I renovated an old house over the last couple of years, in a little village in northern England. I took a career break from graphic design when we had our little boy, and that’s when I learned how to crochet and knit. Now that he’s starting school, I’m seeing if I can turn my craft making into a business. I especially enjoy working with wool – the chunkier the better! I love to fill the house with tactile, bright-coloured goodies.

  • Tomorrow our littlest girl turns two!! She’s gonna be a toddler 😳😳 it’s crazy to look back and see how much she’s changed since we first brought her home! Gah!! Swipe to see some favorites.
  • When I came across the Chocolate Coconut Affogato recipe on @nespresso.ca's website I knew I needed to create one for myself. I drove down to the closest store and picked up a locally made pail of Chocolate Macaroon ice cream. The rich flavours of chocolate and coconut paired perfectly with the limited edition iced coffee capsules that Nespresso recently released, Ispirazione Shakerato and Ispirazione Salentina. If you have never tried an affogato before, head to the blog to see just how easy it is!

  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
