I’m truly thrilled that you’re here, reading along on Simple Decorating Tips!
My number 1 goal with this decorating and DIY blog is to encourage! I want you to know that I have faith in you and I know you can decorate your space to create a place you love that also functions well for your needs.
By sharing my own experiences here, both as a self-taught interior decorator and through my own DIY and decorating projects, I hope to inspire you to be brave and try some yourself!
I also have a decorating and DIY coaching business, Frame and Frills. Through that business I offer one-on-one coaching to walk you through the process of your particular project, (both big and small projects!) Maybe you’re wanting a whole room re-do or you’re just wanting to gain some confidence in painting technique and proper products to finally get your kitchen cabinets painted, or that piece of furniture re-done into your style… Well I can help with that! Through Frame and Frills, I offer coaching, as well as live workshops to teach you the skills you need for DIY. I even have the perfect products in stock! We have Fusion Mineral Paints and supplies stocked up for you to have a successful DIY painting project, (for sale in person or online)!
I’m ALWAYS doing smaller projects and tons of fun DIYs! My last HUGE project was renovating our latest home. When we bought it, it was a very boring later mid-century that I’ve transformed into a Colonial Revival Cottage style (You can check out the progress and see if you like the before and after so far!)
Since all our kids are grown, we have move a few times… renovating as we go. Here are projects from our former home a 100 year old house in the Midwest. I’ve also shared some fun coastal decorating of the cottage we had in Maine.
I have written a few posts highlighting some client projects too… like this Condo Renovation!
I’m pretty real in my style of writing… basically how I talk is how I write. You also get to see some mistakes I’ve made as I share that side of decorating. It’s real… even decorators and seasoned DIY-ers make mistakes. I think the key is to not let it get you down, learn from it and keep moving on! Here are some of those DIY, Tutorials & Tips.
I love gardens and gardening, both inside and outside… so there’s a whole section devoted to Gardens. Which includes tips and DIY and also visiting other beautiful gardens.
One more thing I like to share with you on this blog is a small amount of travel, of sorts. Not everyone can get out and about, so I think it’s inspiring to share and see what other’s see in their travels, art, architecture and gardens. If I’m inspired, I might just go ahead and snap a few pictures while I’m there to share something with you, in case you’ve never had the chance to see it yourself. Here you can see a collection of the places I’ve found inspiring.
There’s one last page… the Shopping page! It has links to my favorite sources I shop at for simple supplies to whole house renovations. (yes, I do get paid a small affiliate amount if you shop through these links… it’s no extra to you, it is just how I keep this blog going. So thanks for using them! 🙂 )
Thanks for reading along on my adventures!
Here on this ‘About Me’ page I’ve gathered the posts I’ve written that are the most personal to me, maybe getting a bit more personal than the average post I write. So if you’re interested in the woman behind this decorating blog read on…
