Megan te Boekhorst, Toronto

Hi. I'm Megan.

I brought my West Coast soul to the city of Toronto in order to build the creative empire of my dreams. Never one to take the traditional route, I've lived life on my own terms since 1991. Currently working in Public Relations while rocking the side hustle lifestyle that brings me unstoppable passion. 

In A Sequoia is for those who own being a bad ass, vulnerable bitch. A source of inspiration for creating intention. Be unapologetically true to yourself. Live #thesequoialife.

A little while after I graduated from school and had settled into my 'day job', I felt it was time to update my decor to fit the 'adult life' vision I had going. Slowly, my vision was starting to come together. Especially after I picked up two key 'me' pieces: my dresser and an amazing navy corner cabinet. 

Now I'm packing up the bare essentials and moving half way across the country. The apartment I'm looking to rent is a whopping 239 square feet. I'm having to say good-bye (for now?) to my current home and the decor vision I had for it. It's a little bitter-sweet for me, so I wanted to share these parts that had finally come to life. 

I focused a lot of energy into the bedroom with the styling of my dresser as well as the gallery wall I was this close to completing. Then when I discovered my corner cabinet, it became my absolute favourite piece to style. I'll miss these corners of my home for sure.
