Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


I get excited every time I share a new “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” with you and today this feels extra special because I have the pleasure to share the home of a fellow Canadian residential designer; Jacqueline Chiarot of @thisprettylifexo.

Jacqueline started her interior design business earlier this year. She’s a busy mom of an adorable toddler and a devoted wife to a professional hockey player, but thanks to her timeless design approach, she’s a designer you will continue to hear about for many years to come.

Here, she shares more details about her personal home:


Hi everyone! I am thrilled to be featured on Home Bunch, a blog I have long admired and referred to when designing our home build! This blog is such an amazing resource for all you home lovers out there so again, I am so excited for this feature!

I’m a mother of one, sweet & sassy 20 month old girl and married to my high school sweetheart who plays for the Montreal Canadiens. I am a residential designer and owner at Jacqueline Chiarot Design, which I recently launched in January 2021. My husband and I built our home 4 years ago and I designed the whole house… I loved every minute of it! This house centered around so many of my design philosophy’s – timeless, classic and beautiful yet functional, livable and emits the feeling of home. It’s elegant and traditional but grounded with modern accents. I aim to make every space inspiring!

I share snaps of our homes and personal projects as well as lifestyle posts, hockey life and motherhood on my Instagram account @thisprettylifexo. I also have an Instagram account for my design business, @jacquelinechiarotdesign, where I share more client projects as well as design and décor tips. I offer many services including virtual work so if interested in working with me check out my website and blog for more details!

For this, I sourced a classic marble carrara subway tile with a chair rail detail around the cooktop. It’s one of my favourite details in our kitchen!”  – Jacqueline Chiarot

“The main thing that sold us on this lot was the view of the greenspace and pond behind us, so we absolutely loved the idea of having a two story living room with large windows going floor to ceiling.

“When we built our home we only half finished the basement. Since I got to design my dream kitchen my husband opted for an amazing gym… so half our basement is a gym! But since he is a professional hockey player he spends a lot of his time down there so it’s totally worth it. This past year we decided to renovate the remaining half to make it a multi-use space with our busy toddler. I was excited to design this portion of our home and I wanted to use new ideas but keep the traditional-modern look consistent throughout our home. I am obsessed with the light chevron flooring and believe it or not it’s laminate! My equally favourite thing is how wonderfully the custom built-in unit I designed turned out! I tried about 25 paint colours to settle on this one, Nimbus by Benjamin Moore, and was it ever worth it!” – Jacqueline Chiarot
