This Influencer’s Historic Home in New Brunswick Makes Us Want to Pack Our Bags And Head East

Self-taught stylist, designer and digital shop owner Wren Silverii of Hungry Heart Home lives in Rothesay, New Brunswick, just outside of Saint John, with her husband, Nate, and their Boston terriers, Lemmy and Birdy. With its salt-licked air — the Atlantic Ocean is but 10 minutes away — the picturesque town is a far cry from landlocked Ottawa. The couple relocated from Canada’s capital last year, scooping up this charming historic New Brunswick home with a wraparound porch and period details.

“The man who built it was a top shoe salesman at the time,” says Wren. “The deed for our land says 1898, but it was probably built in 1900 or 1901.” Its vintage immediately appealed to Wren who is drawn to character-filled interiors. And she has a thing for repurposing goods. Her business, Hungry Heart Home Shop, which launched this past July, is a treasure trove of found antiques and new, easy-to-live-with, naturally inclined pieces. “I love beautiful spaces and always have. It was always a side passion of mine,” says Wren, describing her home as “coastal cottage cozy.” “I want it to feel warm, timeless and inviting.”
