At home with Jillian Harris

Jillian our favorite Canadian Sweetheart asked me to come into her Kelowna home and take some images for some upcoming press she has as well as for her growing blog. She is excited to be using her amazing design skills on the Show Love it or List it airing on HGTV this January ( the Vancouver version) . Thank goodness because we all know that we can’t get enough of Jillian Harris when she is on TV. . I have gotten to know “Jilly” as her family and friends call her over the past few years. She is not only beautiful in person she is so down to earth, truly the girl that has no hidden agenda except for loving life her friends and especially her family. She is always smiling, bopping around to her ipod  and cracking jokes. When Jillian invites you into her life you immediately feel like a friend.  Its very common that Jillian usually has at least one of her adored family members by her side when she is in town. Jillian and her cousin  Sam share the  Kelowna space. Both girls have matching tatoos on their foot that read their grandmothers name.  The girls giggle with excitement during the shoot as they explain to me how they built and made both the headboards in the house, gleaming with pride at their do it yourself project.  I am really amazed when I walk into the space at how talented Jillian is. The space has so many little touches, but what really strikes me is her talent for working different colors together. My favorite thing in the space is a painting she found in an antique store outside of Boston – of the chief – the blue in this work of Art is absolutely incredible.  Thanks again Sam for helping out and Jillian as usual you are such a pleasure to work with.  I can’t wait for the show in January. Were all rooting for you! xx danya
