I am SO excited for this post!! I finally get to bring you into our home!
After my love of food, baking, and recipes comes my love of home decor (and also makeup!). I could watch HGTV for hours and pin dream homes for days. It all makes sense if you consider that two of my best friends and my business mastermind partner are all designers by trade.
For me, the look and feel of a space is truly important. I work from home so having a place that makes me feel happy and inspired is seriously a game changer. I fully believe the world and aesthetic around us has a huge impact on our well being.
We moved into this house a little over a year ago, and it took about that long to get it looking the way it does in the video below. We pieced things together slowly to make sure we were developing a style we both enjoyed and to avoid breaking the bank.
As you’ll see, most of our furniture and decor is super affordable or was done DIY-style. And I tend to have awesome luck with sales and clearance items. We’re definitely not completely ‘done’ with the house (is that even possible?) but I didn’t want that to stop me from sharing what everything looks like currently.
I hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comments below, and any suggestions you might have for some of the things I mentioned in the video.

I went through and included as many links to where we purchased specific products, including the furniture and some decorative items. If you don’t see something listed, just comment below and I’ll let you know!
All furniture from Ikea!
