Welcome! My name is Kristin. This is my little blog about trying to make my house beautiful.
I have always loved interior design. I was the girl who would visit my Grandma’s house and rearrange every room. I scribbled house plans in my notebooks, took some interior design courses in college, and obsessively watched home design shows. Not much has changed in my 30′s (groan). I still do all those things, but now I blog about it too!
In another life, I would apply to be on Design Star. Now, I am my family’s own personal “design star”. We purchased our home in 2009. Actually, it is the home I grew up in. Weird… I know. We have been taking on the challenge of turning our house into a home, one DIY project at a time.
I’m pretty much smitten with bold patterns, high contrast, black + white, shiny things, and metallics. I love classy clutter and interior design books.
I work on a budget. I find a lot of my furniture and home accessories at thrift stores and flea markets. I love to personalize furnishings and make them unique. I am a big fan of spray paint, adventures in the DIY realm, & easy and affordable decorating alternatives.
I am a wife and stay-at-home mom of two boys. We just got our first family pet, Zoey. She is my baby girl and we all cherish her. We are definitely a family that DIY’s together. Thanks for joining us on our little remodeling and designing adventures!
