Hello and welcome! I’m so happy you’re here! I’m Kerri, the ‘voice’ behind A Pop of Pretty, a Canadian home decorating blog that shares home decor ideas, tips, tutorials and inspiration to style your home pretty. I love pretty modern cottage style with a coastal flair.
It’s probably not surprising that I love coastal style so much. I live in Newfoundland, which is as far East as you can go in Canada within falling in the Atlantic Ocean (literally). It’s a beautiful and fierce island, with a rich, colourful history, and deep Irish roots. I love living here.
I started A Pop of Pretty while on maternity leave with twin newborns and a Kindergartener, years ago. I’d just spent 15+ years in a busy ad agency as as a strategic planner, after earning an undergrad in business and an MBA. I desperately needed an outlet for my creative inspiration. And, the topic of my blog was a no brainer!
I’ve always been home decor obsessed, and seriously considered becoming an interior designer before launching my career in Marketing. At university, I’d pour over decorating magazines in the Library when I should have been studying Economics ;-). Decorating has always been in my blood!
Let’s face it. With 3 kids and a dog, my home isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination. My toss pillows aren’t always perfectly puffed, or even always on the sofa, for that matter! Our glass doors always have handprints. Most days, the laundry is piled higher than my front-loader.
Despite real life chaos, my passion for home decor is my motivation to keep sharing here. And, much to my surprise, A Pop of Pretty has blossomed into some amazing opportunities in the area of home decor and home styling in recent years.
