Tina Taus is a lifestyle writer and online producer for HGTV.ca. Having grown up in a eclectic century-old home (think magazine-wallpapered rooms and antique furnishings), her biggest design influence has been her mother. From constant garage sales to visiting antique markets and auctions, Tina has grown to love and appreciate vintage everything! She also has a bit of the DIY'er in her, refinishing the walls in her bedroom as a child being her first project. Today, along with her husband, Tina is renovating (in stages) her nearly century old Toronto home.
