the lovely lauren mann


So I would have to say that I feel super cool being friends with Lauren. She is so talented and her band Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk is one of my all time favorites. I love following Lauren's amazing life of touring, writing music and in the off season living back in Canada. If you haven't heard her music please go check it out here and she also has an amazing blog over here. Such a cool lady! Meet Lauren and here is sneak peak into her amazing home. 

Hey everyone! My name is Lauren, and I play in a band called Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk. I met Gina when we were on tour in the deep south and since then I’ve loved following her blog, and I’m honoured to be guest posting today!
For the past two and a half years, my husband and I have traveled across Canada and the US playing music. We were on the road most of the year so we didn’t have a home base anywhere. It was freeing, to not be tied to any particular place, but I found myself deeply wanting a space of my own. Then a few months ago, my mother-in-law bought a house in a small town in Alberta, Canada with a 200 sq ft building in the backyard, and that has since become our home! We call it The Cabin. It’s pretty tiny, but it’s been extremely fulfilling to have a place of our own that we can work on, decorate, and just rest in. The Cabin has two rooms, a main room and a bedroom, and since the main room is in a state of musical chaos at the moment, I've been taking time to make the bedroom into a functional and cute work/rest space. It's important for us to have a place where we can relax, but also focus on work, and this room accomplishes both.
Of course there are so many things I want to do with the space, inside and out, but for now I am so thankful to have a home that I can share with my husband, and a place to come back to after travelling. It's been an exciting thing to make it our own and have it start to reflect who we are. And that is what I love most about my home.
