I created Poised Petal to share my thoughts, inspirations, and ideas on design, fashion, and art.

Design has always been a part of my life, whether it’s expressed through décor or planning my next party; I see the world through a kaleidoscope of colour, shape, and proportion. I often feel inspired when traveling to a new city, watching a great flick, or simply indulging in a delectable dish. I love searching for DIY inspirations, shopping for vintage and a good dance party. My wardrobe essential is a fabulous party dress…or two. I love wearing dresses; they make me feel feminine & confident. Whether exploring a new city or rediscovering an old favorite; I call Toronto, Canada my home.

Artistry in its many forms challenges our intellect, the “norm”, and our perception of beauty. I want to inspire creativity in your day-to-day by showcasing the intriguing & the quirky.

Thanks for taking time to explore Poised Petal. I hope that you continue to use this site for inspiration.

    I read a quote today that said “I don’t look for the most beautiful girl in the world, I look for a girl who makes my world beautiful”. Through the many years of our friendship you have done just that. You’ve styled me for a party, introducing me to the latest trend in the city, and inspired me to take a leap of faith and chase my dreams. I am lucky to have a friend who makes my world a beautiful place.

    Inspiring, Intriguing and Quirky is the quintessential way of describing one of the most creative people I know.

    Great job on the blog Kristina! It’s saved in my favourites and if I can say one more thing – I LOVE the green shoes!
