Yasmine McGrane is an inspirer and storyteller.  

Ever since she was a little girl growing up in Montreal, Canada, she loved telling stories that inspire people to believe anything is possible. Then jump into life and go for their dreams.

She is a published writer and has been featured in national publications including Country Home, Better Homes and Gardens, Edible Magazine among others.  She is currently writing her first book, a memoir about her journey back home to herself.  She shares everyday moments on her Blog and Instagram.  She hopes they inspire you to leap into life with her.

Yasmine lives in the beautiful seaside town of Sausalito, California (the first stop over the magical Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco Bay) with her Australian husband, David, and their two young children Finnegan and Delphine.  She loves browsing for treasures at antique markets, the feel she gets when walking into a book store to find a new book to enjoy, cooking with her kids a seasonal recipe or simply walking in the rain.

Their 1893 Victorian farmhouse is filled with soulful vintage pieces.  Go inside for decorating ideas, then have fun hunting for your own inspiration pieces in Maison Rêve Shop.  Yasmine lovingly hand selects every piece at antique markets in France and around San Francisco just for you.  And if you're in need of an inspiring vacation to the San Francisco Bay area to stay in a place filled with "white space", surrounded by delicious seasonal food and wines and time to reconnect to your dreams, consider one of herMaison Reve vacation rentals.  It may be just what your soul needs.
