Home Tour with Missy Steffens

Home Tour with Missy Steffens

Missy Steffens discovered art and antiques early in her life; an exposure that evolved and eventually created her career. An avid reader, from art and design books to historical fiction, Missy is always absorbing influences from history all the way up to present day. As a family, Missy loves to travel. That has been a struggle this past year, so reading has filled that void.



I would say I am most passionate about my husband and two kids yet coffee would be a quick second place.

WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE, AND HOW IS THAT REFLECTED IN YOUR HOME?

"My individuality or flair would be I am a collector at heart. I love antique boxes and chairs yet I mix them in a fresh way so I don't look overly traditional/old fashioned. I like the mix between old and new - love the tension there too. Mixing a contemporary painting over an antique chest is one of my favourites."

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF INTERIOR DESIGN?

"Interior Design gives people a respite at the end of the day. It makes a house a home - breathes life into a space and creates individuality. Interior Design is very layered and encompasses many aspects...essentially it highlights your personality. I really enjoy helping clients figure out what they like and can actually live with in their home. A distinction between what you like and what you want to be surrounded with every day. It's a mix."

MUST-HAVE ITEM?

"My must have might be a tray - they tidy up and layer spaces. A gallery style tray is my favourite - it separates well."

WHERE DO YOU DISCOVER YOUR INSPIRATION?

"World around us - inspiration can be a daily occurrence if you take the time. Unexpected colour combinations always catch my eye - I call it 'visual excitement.'"
