Hey there! I'm Elise, the girl behind Coffee & Pine.

I've been a crafty creator since way back when and this led me to pursue an education in interior design. Also, working for a Benjamin Moore location for 3+ years now has not only taught me the foundations of the decor industry, but made me a color fanatic. These days, I work for an interior design firm outside Toronto and am busier/happier than I've ever been. However, my true passion lies in the things you see on this blog. I want to create things; but what means the most to me is sharing it with you.

My specialty and what I love to do most is create full home colour schemes, and share my experiences with paint colours that I've used in my own home and in clients homes.

This is my fiance Tom.
In October 2015, we bought our first home which you can read about here. It's a 1951 bungaloft that was still owned by the original owner and hadn't been updated in years. Lucky for us, with him being a carpenter and me being a designer, we're able to take it on room by room and make it into exactly what we want it to be. We would love for you to follow along on this journey of ours!

Along with our large scale renovation projects, on this blog you'll also see small DIYs that I'm doing to try to make our home just that: home. I'm constantly on the lookout for the latest trends in home decor and interior design, and I love sharing with my readers some tips and tricks that I've learned from working in the field.
