Welcome! I’m so happy you’re here.
Hey there! I’m Elise, the girl behind Coffee & Pine.
A dog mom, soon to be baby girl mom(!), & small town Canadian girl who loves her Tim Hortons.
Most days you’ll find me under multiple blankets on the couch, with my dog to my left and a bottomless cup of coffee to my right.
I became obsessed with HGTV at the age of 11 and made it my life mission to become an interior designer. Well, I did just that, and at the age of 23 I found myself emotionally drained and burnt out from my office job. However my passion for design and colour never wavered and now you’ll find me working from home doing what I love the most: working with clients to find the perfect colours for their own home via online colour consulting.
When I’m not working away at this blog you’ll find me walking my Portguese Water Dog Nora, baking chocolate chip cookies, or Netflixing with my husband Tom. A few other random facts about me: I live in sweat pants and/or leggings, I watch Friends reruns daily, and I know everyone says they love chocolate – but I am truly and deeply addicted to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
In 2015 we bought our first home which is a major fixer upper (hellllo dusty rose carpets and yellow wall panelling)! Luckily Tom’s a contractor and we’ve been transforming this small town bungaloft day in and day out since we moved in. On this blog I share our renovation projects, home decor tips, and my colour expertise that I gained through working for Benjamin Moore for 4+ years. I also offer virtual colour consultations which you can read more about by clicking here!
