Designer Spotlight- Jacquelyn Clark of Lark and Linen

I wanted to share with you guys one of my favorite interior designers/bloggers! I found Jacquelyn Clark of Lark and Linen’s blog last summer when I was looking for inspiration for home decor.

This Toronto based designer has an amazing eye for accessories and I love that she adds personal touches to her client’s designs. I have included just a few of my favorite rooms from her projects below:
