Founded in June of 2012, Bliss at Home is a design blog with a strong focus on DIY. Kristin Cadwallader is the author, creative, and stylist with a background in art and design.

Kristin’s design philosophy is “be daring but lovely”. She likes to show her readers how to create high end looks on a budget. Kristin pulls a lot of her inspiration from timeless design elements and the fashion world.

She thinks that every person should have a space that enriches their life. Each home has a story to tell and a personal style to reflect.

Kristin believes to be daring but lovely in design is a willingness to take some risks. Life is too short to have a boring home. By frequenting thrift stores and flea markets she creates unique spaces. Kristin loves to share tutorials on how to make your own furniture or makeover an existing piece. She is not a stranger to painting her own artwork either.

Kristin’s work has caught the eye of the design world. Her blog and projects have been featured in Better Homes & Gardens Magazine, HGTV Magazine, USA Today Home Magazine, Apartment Therapy and many more.

When not holding a paint brush or dreaming up her next design, Kristin is a loving wife and mother of two boys.
