House + Flower
Reviving Forgotten Homes + Abandoned Gardens
Through engaging photography, and Cynthia's approachable personal narrative, explore the art of reviving old gardens and aging homes. Cynthia takes her reader through the process as she and husband Graham restore the interior settings and exterior spaces of their seventh residence, Leuty, and reflects on other lessons learned from coaxing new life into other properties in and around Toronto.
Cynthia is an interior and floral designer known for character-filled spaces and carefree flower displays.
With an infectious creative spirit and a belief that we all need more beautiful in our lives, Cynthia shares inspiration as a stylist and content contributor, writer, and workshop teacher. Her work is regularly featured in leading international lifestyle media, including Domino, Apartment Therapy, Country Living and Homes and Gardens, House and Home, and Style at Home.
An advocate of the Slow Flower Movement, Cynthia sustainably grows small-batch specialty blooms and designs unfussy seasonal arrangements. This soulful aesthetic spills into Cynthia's interiors which are true-to-the-space, trendless mash-ups of scale, texture and color.
Cynthia and her husband Graham share a passion for saving forgotten houses and have restored a range of period properties. A former public relations executive, Cynthia now devotes her time to family and creative projects from her home base in Toronto.
"There’s something wildly romantic about reimagining weathered homes and gardens in need of love. The promise of renewal is seductive. Whether your space is old or new, done or undone, city or country, I invite you to embrace the beauty surrounding you."
