Contributed by Autumn Hachey, Salvation Army Thrift Store Creative Expert.

Autumn is a  digital content strategist, a stylist, and a producer at Studio Bicyclette. She lives for the hunt of hidden gems with intriguing past-lives and is usually drawn to classic barware, eclectic lighting, and all things brass. 

Her eye for vintage treasures is a natural extension of her penchant for bold design, and she's almost always planning, styling and otherwise reimagining every room in a home from kitchens to bedrooms and beyond. She has a love affair with arches, a mild obsession with anything covered in velvet, and can often be found in the presence of all things yellow. She writes about her creative endeavours and spirited adventures on her website autumnhachey.com.

With a background in public relations and interior design, Autumn previously worked as a content marketing strategist for Canada’s largest furniture retailer. She was the founding editor-in-chief of the Hello Yellow blog, and the Hello magazine series, a semi-annual digital and print publication that celebrated the unique homes and stories of lifestyle bloggers from coast-to-coast. Her work with Hello Yellow allowed her to flex her content marketing skills, and also hone in on her love of interiors. Her unique take on design has been featured on Design*Sponge and House & Home. 

She lives in Toronto with her beau and a giant ceramic leopard named Jackson. Her philosophy on life & design are one in the same: choose inspiration over moderation; and be singularly focused on all of the things that make you happy. Make Moves.
