Moving in with someone is a huge decision. In May, Scotty and I took the jump to be professional roommates. I packed up all of my things in Hamilton and made the move down the road to his condo. I’ll let you in on a secret, this was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Since moving in, Scotty has done so much to make me feel like this is my now home too. It’s hard when you first move in to someone else’s place because you are mixing two lives worth of “stuff” and two styles of design. Thankfully Scotty and I have very similar tastes but we knew we wanted to give the place a little overhaul.
We did the whole Marie Kondo purge and finally had the storage solutions we dreamed up in the original plan. But as of September one big thing was yet to be changed. The colour of the walls!

@scottyshares and I have been living together for over four months now! We had a massive purge of things we didn’t need anymore, rearranged the furniture and FINALLY PAINTED! 🎉💃🏼🕺 After painting our spare room and the guest bath we realized painting is hard 💁🏼♀️ So to tackle our main room, office space and kitchen we recruited help from @paintmycondo! We had the place painted while we were in British Columbia so the final result was a total surprise once we arrived home! 😍Nothing like throwing in home improvement during your busiest time. 🙃 We are so pleased with the result and can’t believe how talented the people at @paintmycondo are. If you’re considering painting your place (and lack the talent like @scottyshares and I do😑) we completely recommend Paint My Condo because they are Pros over Joes! ❤️ #prosoverjoespmc #belowtheblonde #homerenovation #howtopaint #homedecoration #paintmycondo
The condo was a bland, builders beige when Scott originally moved in four years ago. Once he was settled in, his cozy aesthetic leaned towards a darker hue of gray for his new place. However, after we moved in together despite liking the coziness of the darker colour we both felt like it was time to turn to the bright side.
I think our style could be classified as minimalistic, natural and bright, so white for the walls was a clear front runner. We did spot tests and made the decision that “Pure White” from Sherwin Williams was the clear winner.
After painting our spare room and the guest bath we realized painting is harddddd. The thought of painting the rest of our place was very daunting. Then the universe answered our prayers! We were reached out to from a company called “Paint My Condo” and the rest was history!
The original deal was for a feature wall or a small room. However, Scott and and looked around and realized this is no small room. Needless to say we still took it as a sign and went forward with this phenomenal company (spoilers — we love their work!)
We had the place painted while we were in British Columbia for a wedding so the final result was a total surprise once we arrived home! Nothing like throwing in home improvement during your busiest time. We are so pleased with the result and can’t believe how talented the people at @paintmycondo are.
This is much different from hiring a freelancer you saw a flyer for while idling at a traffic light. These people are true professionals and it shows in their work. My Dad always taught me it’s all about the prep work. Immediately our painter from Paint My Condo got to work patching holes and focusing on the fine details like edging. He was quick, meticulously clean with his work and very considerate.
Considering how dark the walls were before, Scotty and I were concerned we didn’t buy enough paint. We quickly learned when you hire someone who knows what they’re doing a little goes a long way! This was another huge benefit to having a professional who knows what they are doing to get the job done. We ended up saving money on materials we would have inevitably overused.
