Carrie has always enjoyed helping others with their decorating dilemmas, but it was not until a friend asked her to paint a child's tea table that she discovered her true passion for transforming pieces of furniture that others might consider junk, into one-of-a-kind, re-purposed treasures that breathe new life into a home.
Carrie started down the entrepreneurial road by hunting for all sorts of beautiful furniture and accessories that she could paint and share with others. What began as an extended hobby where she sold her pieces at a two day Show & Sale, has blossomed into The Passionate Home, allowing Carrie to share her love of vintage treasures with others, spend more time with her family and express her love for house and home.
Over the years Carrie's “job” has evolved from “hunting and gathering” to educating, encouraging and bringing value to others in everything they do.
Having studied Fine Arts at Kwantlen College and Emily Carr, Jeannine considers herself a creative person who absolutely loves decorating. For as long as she can remember she would pick up vintage pieces at tag sales and repurpose them into something beautiful. For 8 years she co-owned her own home decor boutique and helped customers with in-home consultations or finding that perfect piece to fit their space.
She really loves working in the decor industry and is over the moon happy to be here at The Passionate Home as the store manager. She loves working with a talented and inspiring team and offering her experience to help you create a beautiful life!
Mark brings a passion and eye for all things colour! A firm believer that you can find beauty in the smallest things, and all it takes is that one special piece to make any room ‘POP’ and come to life!
Whether its bringing new life into old pieces or searching to find something new and exciting, the journey to a finished room always has twists and bends, and it’s usually in those curves a space really finds its traction. Passion is his strength and he brings it to everything he does.
I am thrilled to be a part of The Passionate Home team! For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for interior design and decorating.
It wasn’t until I finished studying Studio Art at Capilano University and worked a couple years part-time in retail that I decided to pursue my interest in Visual Merchandising and Display. I began at Caban as the Visual Presentation Manager and then went on to work for Holt Renfrew, Club Monaco and Pottery Barn to name a few places.
I love interior styling, fashion styling, and staging and now at The Passionate Home I can continue pursuing my passion by helping others fulfill their visions for their homes.
