Feature Friday: Citrine Living

Welcome to another Feature Friday!  Another newish blogger I’ve met on Instagram and at Haven this year is Tamara from Citrine Living.  She’s a stylish mom who lives in Canada and has a beautiful modern traditional home.  You’ll find loads of great ideas in her home tour and it’s a mix of regular decorating and her Fall home tour decor.  So pretty and stylish!  There truly are so many beautiful styles of decor in blogland and Tamara’s is fresh, clean and pretty, with a sprinkle of color throughout (she loves blue and white!), creating a modern, yet classic vibe.

Here’s a little about Tamara from her bio:

Tamara Anka of CitrineLiving is a Graphic Designer by trade who, over the last 20 years has developed and honed her eye for design across multiple disciplines such as branding, illustration, decorating and more. Working in fashion retail marketing as a Designer and Creative Director, as well as having a discerning eye for detail, Tamara has developed her skill set and applies them to her design business as well as decorating her own home. Her blog, CitrineLiving.com, which started out as a creative outlet, has quickly become a destination of inspiration for many – from tablescapes, to decor, to entertaining and DIY’s, visitors are sure to find the ideas that they’re looking for, and may even be surprised by Tamara’s unique approach. She has quickly gained a following on Instagram and has carved out a niche as one who’s not shy to try bold pattern mixing or use color in unexpected ways. Her sense of style as well as her outlook on design and decorating are what her readers are drawn to, as well as her candid and genuine personality, which also keeps them coming back for more.


The exterior of her home is just stunning, so pretty with the mix of stone, siding and shingles. I’m not going to talk through this one either, so enjoy all the gorgeous photos!  She decorated for Fall in a pretty, but simple way, so take note of that too.


























Wasn’t that fun?!  I hope you enjoyed this tour of Tamara’s beautiful home at Citrine Living.  She is one stylish lady, so stop over and get to know her better.

Preserving Family Memories


You all know that I'm close to my family.  It happens naturally, I think, as we get older to appreciate our family heritage more than ever. At least it's been that way for me.  I so appreciate the parents I have and having family pictures and memories to hold on to is just priceless. My family was not wealthy at all when I was growing up.  We still aren't, but we are blessed with much more than … Read More»

Family Time in New Orleans


I just did a recent update on the family, but since we just got back from another fast weekend trip down to New Orleans, I thought I'd share what we did this visit.  My sister and I went down and took mom with us, she will continue to travel with us as long as she can and she always enjoys seeing those grand baby girls, so it's a win-win for all.  They are getting to know their great grandmother, … Read More»

Feature Friday: Nina Hendrick Design


Today is an exciting day! I leave for Austin, TX and will meet up with a group of ladies for a super fun shopping trip. Something I've always dreamed of doing, hitting Round Top, TX and the huge vintage market that is held each spring and fall. We've been warned it's really hot out there. Well, it's hot here in GA too, so I think I can cope. I'll wear plenty of cool casual clothes and I know we … Read More»

A Fall Home Tour Blog Hop 2016!


Happy Fall!  It's finally getting a tad cooler here in Georgia and I couldn't be more happy about that.  I really don't do a ton of Fall decorating around here, so I thought it would be fun to do a link party with all the bloggers out there who are doing amazing things for Fall.  Prepare to be inspired with all the Fall decorating that is going on out there in blogland.  I save my energy for … Read More»

Five Affordable Finds for the Over 50 Set


You all know by now that I love a bargain!  In fact, I've done a lot of thriftstore and consignment store shopping over the years and am proud of it.  Wearing second hand clothes has never bothered me. Heck, I always wore hand-me-downs from my sister growing up. Finding a deal on clothing is always at the top of my priority list when it comes to buying new things.  I enjoy clothing, but I'm not … Read More»
