Welcome to Omysa Home Tours, where we feature stylish and creative homes around the world.
Name: Wendy Lau
Location: Toronto, Canada
Type of home: House, owned
Size: 1,200 square feet
Flight attendant, home decor enthusiast, and Instagram content creator Wendy Lau live in a 1970’s home in Canada, near her family and friends. Her 1,200 square feet home is a bit boho chic, a bit eclectic, a bit mid-century mixed with lots and lots of greenery and natural light.
Wendy’s boho chic interior and home decor perfectly reflect her bright and colorful personality, and it also makes the place unique and full of life. Different kinds of plants take up a sizable portion of their bedroom, kitchen, and living room. However, one-room makes this home extra special, and it’s their sunroom designed with wicker furniture, accessories, and lots of indoor plants.
Whenever Wendy’s not serving drinks in the air professionally, she spends her time at home with her plants and posting about her home decor obsession on her blog, The Kwendy Home, and on her Instagram page.
Let’s check out more of Wendy’s plantylicious and boho chic home.
Tell us something about your home
We chose to live close to our friends and family, so we were looking at neighborhoods established in the 1970s. During that time, it was very popular to have saunas and sun room’s as additions to people’s homes. We tore down the sauna, but kept the sunroom! Haha!
Describe your interior style
I would describe my interior style as bohemian, eclectic, and a touch of mid-century modern. Or plantylicious! Haha!
Tip: Express your individuality with a boho chic interior style. Focus on warm earthy colors, then combine and layer colors to make your home unique. Also, don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns and textures. Let in a lot of natural light to complete the calm and inviting look.
What is your favorite part of your home and why?
My favorite part of the home is the sunroom because it is basically a glass house that lets in a lot of light, a perfect home for my plants!
What is your least favorite part of your home and why?
I wish my basement had more windows to let in natural light so I could have plants down there.
Tip: Add low-light indoor plants like a Heartleaf Philodendron, snake plants, and devil’s ivy to light-starved areas of your home. Also, keep in mind the rule of thumb when watering plants: water only when the soil is dry to avoid root rot, which causes plants to wither and die.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
My mom taught me the value of thrifting. She can also spot a treasure on the curb! I also find inspiration from my Instagram friends. It’s like a never-ending cycle of inspiration!
What are your recommended places to shop?
I love the reStore! It’s always an adventure, and you can find the coolest stuff!
