Boy + Girl Design
We’re Boy + Girl.
Oh, + Dog.
We’re an early 30’s couple living in Canada.
And we’re putting our best amateur design foot forward, in an attempt to transform our first home.
We Bought. We’re Broke. We’re Renovating.
We’re overhauling our 1980’s bungalow on a budget.
Follow along for creative design solutions and affordable fixes.
If you stick it out with us, you’ll be sure to witness domestic design disputes, home renovation debacles and be subjected to an abundance of + Dog pictures.
We’re basically just sharing our lives with you, whether you like it or not!
We’re ready to get started. We hope you’ll join us. We could use the help.

But I’m going to be honest with you here. Winter was long. And draining. And my motivation and creativity froze along with everything else around here.

Well, I officially considered Christmas break over as of yesterday. And as much as I’ve absolutely loved all of the rest and relaxation, I’m ready to get back to this here blog with more dedication than in any year past. I read my 2013 horoscope a few days ago. It said that this would be my most successful year yet. And even thoug...

My break from the blog ended up being a little bit longer than I expected (and I never did finish my It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas Series), but it was so nice to take some time to enjoy family, take wintery dog walks, relax, e...
