About Miranda D'Aiuto

Miranda is a creative and adventurous twenty-something, born and raised in Niagara Falls, Ontario. She moved to Ottawa and completed an undergraduate degree in law at Carleton University. Yet, after much deliberation and some agonizing, she came to terms with the fact that she is a right-brained individual and decided to hit the books again. The second time around, Miranda channelled her creativity and imagination in interior design/decoration and has never looked back. She is a Guinness drinking, figure skating, animal loving, big city girl. When Miranda isn't trying out DIYs and new restaurants, she loves picking up new books, relaxing at home and spending time with friends.
