Carla Bushey from Oak Hill Farms Interior Blog
About: Oak Hill Farms is born out of love for our family and a passion for nature. We believe that the ingredients we use on our bodies impact our health and well being. While spending hours at grocery stores trying to understand label ingredients, we decided to make a change. This leads us to the idea to make our own wellness products that we knew we could trust. Why not use the ingredients we get on our farms? Goat’s milk, Raw Honey, Bees Wax are some of the extraordinary ingredients we are lucky to have and add to our product line. After months of testing, we perfected soaps, lotions, lip balms, soy wax candles and other products we handcraft to bring you a clean, wholesome experience you’re sure to love. We have a true love for our community and other artisans and makers. Little by little, we continue to bring their pieces into our studio to showcase their work. We are adding home decor and garden products to share our love and lifestyle with you. We will continue to live clean, simply and fully and we will bring you practical and beautiful products that work for us and promise to work for you as well. Thank you for following along our journey,
Shawna Liao from Willow Bloom Home Blog
About: I’m Shawna and I have a life-long passion for décor. When I was twelve, my Dad dropped me off at a wallpaper store and I came out an hour later with everything I needed to wallpaper my bedroom. I completed the entire project myself in a few days and was in awe at the transformation. It took me over 25 years to turn this passion of mine into a career. During that 25 years, I obtained a graduate degree in science and worked in the federal government for 15 years. I got married and became a mom to three young boys. Eventually, I felt the need to spread my creative wings, and I made the decision to leave my job. In 2015, I opened an Etsy shop that carries wreaths, table runners, and other home décor items that I make by hand. Next, I decorated most of the living spaces in our home, and tried my hand at all kinds of décor projects including painting furniture, adding shiplap and wall moldings, and reupholstering small and large pieces of furniture. I started to become known for my modern farmhouse style and was asked to work with décor clients to design their spaces. I have also worked with several large companies as an influencer, and have been featured on the Instagram pages of Better Homes and Gardens, Pier One Imports, and Cottages & Bungalows Magazine. I love light filled interiors with a neutral palette and my favourite décor styles are modern farmhouse, French country, coastal, and updated traditional. Check out my Interior Blog.
Sarah from Sarah Williams Home Interior Blog
About: I’m Sarah – an Indianapolis native who lives in a 1960s fixer upper with my husband, four young kids, and two ragamuffin cats, Tia and Lottie (these recent additions have turned me into a cat lady)! I’ve been wanting to start a blog after moving into our fixer upper a few years ago as a resource for you friends to access budget friendly tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way!My love for home started at a very young age because my mom made birthdays and holidays special by decorating the house; and then later on, she always had a warm and welcoming house to come back to during the college and traveling years. I loved coming home and knew I wanted to create that same feeling for my future family and all those who are under our roof. There’s no place like home is one of my favorite mottos!I grew up in a house that was always being worked on. My parents also designed office space for clients and so talk of lighting, paint colors, wood tones, seating, artwork, etc. were always the norm and I learned a lot from themI’ve been fortunate enough to travel around our beautiful country and abroad and lived in multiple places before getting married in my 30s and settling here in Indy. I loved creating a comfortable and inviting home no matter where I was!As far as decorating and design, I really like so many styles and am all about mixing old and new on a budget as best I can! Here are the styles I feel most at home in:1. Rustic Farmhouse – My dad’s favorite place to visit when he was little was his grandparent’s farm – and so the worn, chippy, vintage, antique style of a Midwestern farm has my heart.2. Clean Southwestern – My mom grew up in Arizona – and the amazing smells and views the dessert, cacti, mountains, and red rocks bring back so many good memories of visiting and falling in love with the southwest.3. Laid-back Scandinavian – Going to school in Denver and “playing in the open air” there made me fall in love with the relaxed environment and natural elements of the state of Colorado. The sophisticated neutrals, shimmering metallics, and reclaimed wood all found in nature and the Scandinavian style (and Ikea!) are some of my favorites to use in our home.4. New England Cottage – And then living in Massachusetts and Rhode Island for 5 years allowed me to fall in love with the historic and always classic New England coastal style!

Teri & Sue from Wool and Vine Interior Blog
About: We’re two sisters who grew up in Southern California and come from a family of five girls and one boy! We have always loved design and we each have our own styles. Teri loves the French country look with a modern twist, while Sue has vintage collections and redecorates her home often. Although we do not have degrees in interior design, it is something that we have always been passionate about. Over the years we have styled our own homes and others as well, including staging homes for sellers. Teri is also a full-time licensed realtor in California which keeps her busy. How did Wool + Vine begin?
S: We started out in 2016 when Teri was enrolled in a web-based business course. One of the requirements was to create a web-based business. Teri decided to make mini wool felt garlands and market them online. She created an Instagram and instantly fell in love with the decor community! I remember one particular weekend, her family took a trip to the river. Teri called me and asked if I could take pictures for her Instagram because she didn’t have anything to post that day. I was already into staging and home decor, so I was happy to do that. She asked me to join Wool + Vine shortly after, and I was happy to accept!
T: We always say we can’t imagine doing this whole thing alone. It’s so nice to have another opinion, another eye for design, and even another house to style! We live in the same town about 10 minutes away from each other, and it’s fun to be able to share this journey together. We love creating and designing functional, affordable, and most importantly, beautiful spaces! Where do you find everything?
S: Estate sales, yard sales, thrift shops, and antique stores. I love a bargain.
T: Sue is very good at couponing and loves the finds and the good deals. I go for convenience. If it’s going on sale in three days, Sue will leave it and come back, but I will get it.
Heidi from Home by Heidi Interior Blog
About: Home by Heidi is all about Home! As a wife and mom of 4 amazing kids, my desire has always been to create an environment of comfort and hope where people feel instantly at home and welcome. Here you will see my love of mixing old and new decor as I tackle a variety of projects, that range from difficult to easy, in my quest to perfect the spaces I’ve been given. You will also see the ups and downs of Home Life as well as how to stay within a budget, where to spend, and where to save. For the past 13 years, we lived in a home we built from the ground up. As of 2 years ago, we decided it was time for a change so we packed up and moved to southern Utah. We have loved the adventure of it all, but living in a rental has been a very interesting journey for me. There are cons, of course, but I also discovered a lot of pros, And as a designer I’ve been stretched in my abilities. In this crazy adventure called life, where you’re never really sure where it will take you next, I have realized more than ever that Family and Home is truly where the Heart is and what matters most. It has been a challenge figuring out ways to make a house that isn’t mine, feel like HOME. I am excited to share our next journey as we are working closer to building our final home in the coming year. Fingers crossed! I am so glad you stopped by today. I hope you’re inspired to create your own life and home in a way that you love and that brings you happiness. Passion is Key, trust your gut in all you do! Check out my Interior Blog.

We live in Massachusetts in our handed down farmhouse built in 1847, so there have been some major changes to it!

Christina from CG Home Interiors
About: Welcome to CG Home Interiors, an Interior Design and Home Staging firm based in sunny Arizona! I’ve lived in the Valley of the Sun for most of my life and while I’ve tried to imagine life in other states with different scenery, I’m going to be real honest – I’ll probably never leave. My design eye loves the vast beauty Arizona has to offer. I was raised in the city, but love the heart that country and outdoors have to offer. If you were to ask my favorite thing about this state, it’s the broad selection of scenery from desert to (almost) tropical to forest. It’s being able to travel a few hours North and be in a whole new world full of pines, snow capped mountains, red rock and beautiful scenery. When it comes to design and decor, it’s been a long time hobby and something I’ve always been passionate about. Simply put, I love making things beautiful! As far back as I can remember family and peers have always told me that I should be an Interior Designer. It sounded fun, but the thought of going into business for myself was frightening and I had no idea how I’d make money doing that! I started my family young, and frankly it just wasn’t an option to forego a consistent paycheck, so I began my career in the Mortgage and Real Estate industry in 2003. My most recent roll in mortgage marketing combined with my unwavering desire to create beautiful things helped me realize it was time to follow my passion. Thanks to my wonderful husband (who is also my high school sweetheart), we were finally in a position where I could leave my desk job and pursue my dream of helping others create their own stylish, welcoming spaces. The rest is history! What began as a hobby turned into much more. In addition to offering Full Service Interior Decorating for local clients, my computer knowledge allows me to create spaces for clients near and far through Mood Boards and e-Design. Additionally, the relationships I’ve built over the years in the mortgage industry led to another path in Home Staging. My ability to create fresh and inviting spaces with a neutral color palette accentuate the property features and allows potential buyers to envision themselves living there as soon as they walk through the door. In recent studies, a properly staged home has been shown to result in quicker sales, higher offer prices, and maximized profit on the selling side. I’m thrilled that you stopped by and would love for you to contact me for a consultation and custom quote on your next project. Feel free to hop over to my services for more info on what CG Home Interiors has to offer!
Kelly from The Tattered Pew
About: Hi, I’m Kelly Radcliff! The voice and face behind The Tattered Pew where I share budget friendly decorating ideas along with do-it-yourself projects that are fun, practical and beautiful.

I LOVE being with my family and we can usually be found at anything sports related. My awesome husband and I have two little girls together and I am blessed to have two amazing step-sons.

I love mixing the old with the new, breathing new life into old treasures, going to flea markets, garage sales and the occasional trip to Homegoods or Target. But I’ll be honest, I’m really just a hot mess mama who needs JESUS and coffee every morning!
Lori from The Finished Project
About: I’m SO excited to share my projects with you! I hope you’ll find some inspiration here and the encouragement to try something new. Design and DIY are high on my list of loves! Even as a little girl, I loved moving my room around and I believe I’ve made so many design fails in the 18 years of having a home, that I couldn’t help but grow from them. Having a home and a furniture booth over the years have been my design classroom, and I truly believe we learn something new everyday!
Meghan from Mister + Mrs Sharp
About: Our first design project was for the hardest clients: ourselves. When we began our life together as Mr. and Mrs. Sharp, we combined two households into one. We didn’t want his things and her things, we wanted our things. Through the process of editing and curating our first home together, we learned a great deal about how we want to live: simply and beautifully. After moving homes nine more times our process has refined, and we have learned how much we love designing together. Our first projects were for close friends who needed help with their homes. We listened to what they wanted and transformed their homes into gorgeous spaces that took advantage of the architecture and reflected the people who lived there.Eventually our design studio went from a side business to being a full on firm. With 30 years of experience in corporate visual merchandising, and 10 years in home organization and design, we bring our refined sensibility to every project. We believe you should love every single thing in your home. That comfort and luxury can coexist. We believe sometimes it’s about what to take out, not what to add back in. And it’s possible to have that ‘I can’t believe I live here’ feeling every time you walk through your front door.

Charlotte from Charlottes Happy Home
About:Hey y’all, I’m Charlotte Evans Russell. Care to know a little more about me than you may see on the blog? Let me start by saying, I was born, raised and plan to stay in Sweet Home Alabama! (insert best song ever) I got married at the age of 34 and inherited a gem of a stepdaughter. Before getting married, I went 12 years without going on one date. I know… I know… Crazy, you say? Many thought so, but the truth is I had no desire to waste time when I could be building a life. After growing up in the foster care system with no stability, it was important for me to feel established on my own. After owning a successful business and building my first house, God eventually brought the right man into my life. Totally worth the wait! He loves me more than I could have ever dreamed. We recently remodeled a historic home to make it our perfect faux farmhouse until we can build a real one of our own. We pastor a church in North Alabama with rolling hills and beautiful views. I have a sweet southern accent (so I hear) and a passion for happiness (living and giving). Hence the name, Charlottes Happy Home. Marriage and ministry are dear to my heart, while home decor and lifestyle are my creative outlets. These are all things you will find here on the blog. I would love for you to join my tribe not only here, but also on Instagram. That’s where you will find behind the scenes on home decor, DIYs, budget shopping, family, fun, encouragement, personal connection and so much more. Yes, even my southern accent! Seriously, I get comments about that on the daily. Ha! Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Be sure to stay around so we can do this fun thing we call life together, OK?
Jessica from House full of Summer
About: I’m Jessica – just a Northern girl living in a Southern world! It has always been a dream of mine to live somewhere warm, near the ocean. That dream came true when I moved to Florida in 2014. Soon after, my husband and I bought a fixer-upper which inspired me to share how I’m making our Florida house feel like home…on a beach. We love everything about the “beach life” and I’m excited to share it with you! I hope you enjoy following along on our journey! P.S. Our Great Dane x English Mastiff is named Summer, so I get the “chicken or the egg” question pretty often. I named her after what I loved most and it’s just that “summer” state of mind. She’s a pretty big deal around here (pun intended), so at 170+ pounds she challenges me to create a pretty interior that is also big-dog friendly.

Michele from Sweet Threads Design Co.
About:Welcome! My name is Michele Brown and I am a mom of 3 sweet littles and wife to a handy hubby that puts up with my countless home projects. In 2014, I started designing our dream home, a farmhouse in a Philadelphia suburb we now call home. A Tennessee girl at heart, I like to think we brought the south up north! The design process inspired me to share DIYs, design and decor ideas with sneaks inside our new home. The entire building process has inspired a whole new creative outlet for me…interior design and styling. I hope to inspire others through my sweet and simple style.
BonBon from Farmhouse 40
About: I am BonBon, so glad you stopped by the farmhouse. This blog is all about Home Decor, DIY Projects, a few recipes here and there, and just everyday life stuff.I started this little blog as a way to share my love of interior design and with hopes to inspire others that they too can create a beautiful home on a budget. No matter how big or small, a house or an apartment, it’s yours and your families and you can make it all you want it to be and not spend tons of money doing it.My love of decorating started when I was a young girl. I grew up in the Midwest, surrounded by cornfields, farmhouses, and woodlands. Not exactly the metropolis of Interior Design Inspiration. I would spend hours cutting out pictures of homes, rooms, and items I loved. I constantly rearranged and redecorated my little bedroom, making it pretty and attractive with items I had. Small budgets do not mean small ideas or results.Being on a budget taught me the creative skills of how to use what I have and using items in different ways could get amazing results. That love of design has stayed with me over the years and has remained as my source of enjoyment and passion. Still today, I decorate my home with items I have, DIY projects, thrift store and yard sale finds. What a great way to make your decorating budget stretch. Of course, I buy new items too, but it can be very satisfying to make things yourself or to find that special item on sale or at a thrift store.I hope you will stop in often and see the latest decorating projects here at the farmhouse. It is a work in progress so never a dull moment. Hopefully, along the way, you will see something you like and might want to incorporate into your home as well.
Lindsey from C&B Staging
About: I have always loved going to open houses with my mother, who is a realtor, when I was a child. I loved going in and seeing what the spaces looked like and could look like. Two years ago a good friend of mine had her home on the market for months with no bites… I asked if she could take it off for a month while we went in and staged her home. We painted the entire interior including trim, doors, everything. We had a very tight budget so we found items on Craigslist including a floor to ceiling mantle that completely changed the room. The first showing she had an offer! That experience was when I knew this is what I wanted to do. I loved every minute of it. We don’t just stage homes. We breathe life into vacant spaces. We help accentuate occupied spaces to show potential buyers these are the homes they have to have.
Kelly from Thee Greenspring Home
About: I have started this blog to share my passion for interiors and home decor. We spend most of our lives at home. My goal day in and day out is to help you create a home you will love.
Jolie from Jolie Marche
About:Hi, my name is Kristi and I am the founder of Jolie Marche. I am a wife, mother of 3 and a self-taught textile and pattern designer from Franklin, Tennessee. Longing to be able to work but also make every one of my children’s school plays, class parties, performances and sporting events led me to start Jolie Marche in a small home studio in 2009. We have grown a lot since those days, but our philosophy remains the same. We believe in surrounding yourself with tried and true patterns and textures that will stand the test of time. From feminine florals to everyday basics, we continually strive to use the highest quality breathable, sustainable cottons and linens that will always feel like home.

Rachel from Joyful Derivatives
About: I’m Rachel Joy – a DIY and coffee addict obsessed with all things home. Through this blog, I inspire and teach non-designers simple and affordable ways to create a home they love spending time in and are proud to share with others. I am so glad you are here! Won’t you grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile? When we bought our first home in 2012, it was a basic, builder-grade home with old flooring and dirty-looking cream paint on every wall. We had both just graduated from college, and with the cost of a new mortgage on top of our student loans, we didn’t have very much “extra cash” to use towards fixing up our house. But our passion for having a home we loved told us we needed to do SOMETHING. So we slowly worked our way through each room in the house – coming up with low-cost, DIY projects that increased the style but didn’t put us into a bunch of debt. When we sold the house four years later, it was a beautiful home filled with style! Now, after fixing up our second home and helping people every month transform their homes on a tight budget, we’ve decided to share our wealth of knowledge and creative decorating solutions with you here, on Joyful Derivatives! Over the last 7 years, we’ve spent countless hours developing a deep understanding of how to effectively DIY a home transformation, and we can’t wait to teach you all of our tricks.

Tiffany from Joyfully Rooted
About: Hi, my name is Tiffany. I’m a Texas girl through-and-through and quite Southern at heart. I married my high school love after he swept me off my feet. We didn’t know at the time the depths (and heights) to which our love would be carried over the coming years. Through the journey, God has blessed us with three beautiful children and a deeper understanding of faith, marriage, and family. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Studies with an emphasis in pottery. After a few years of teaching Art to middle and high schoolers, I made the decision to become a stay-at-home-mom. This decision pushed my creative side to the back seat a bit but allowed me to focus my time and energy on our little ones. Not long ago, I felt God pressing on my heart to renew the gifts He has given me, while encouraging others along the way. Joyfully Rooted is a place where I want to encourage others to find the strength it takes to truly be rooted in joy on a daily basis. It is my desire that Joyfully Rooted encourages you in all things faith, family, and home.
Shawn & Kris from The Farmhouse Project
About: We’re two gents from the big city – a perfectionist designer and a free-spirited doctor – who decided to slow down, simplify, and unplug by moving into a historic farmhouse in Upstate New York. We traded in taxis for pickup trucks and store-bought for handmade, and filled our lives with what brought us the most joy: entertaining, cooking, gardening, learning to live off the land, restoring our farmhouse, and creating cool sustainably-made home goods. On any given day, you’ll probably find us feeding our chickens, working on a project in our on-site studio, or whipping up a new cocktail recipe to share with you. But the best thing might be our pretty incredible community of like-minded folks, both online and off. We really love connecting with our neighbors, supporting local businesses and artisans, and bringing everyone together through events we host throughout the year. The Farmhouse Project is our cozy corner where we like to share all of the above. So even if you can’t visit this gorgeous area in person, you can still get a taste of upstate living and experience the charm of it all as we create our own happy hybrid of a beautiful life, lived simply.

Kate from Back to Blueberry Hill
About: If you had the opportunity to buy the very house you grew up in, would you? So here’s the scoop: What seemed like days after we finished renovating and decorating our first home, life decided to happen: Pregnant with No. 3 and a new job in my hometown. A move was inevitably in our future. A tight budget and big expectations didn’t exactly mesh for us and we were left with a big goose egg on potential “new” houses. Then the opportunity of a lifetime came a-knocking. My parents had been teetering on the idea of selling their house, yet not quite ready to let it go. But, selling in the family meant they didn’t have to. Done and Done. Now let the fun begin! Follow along and see how we’re tackling room by room, brining new life to this little place we affectionately call, “Blueberry Hill.” Check out my Interior Blog.

Lorin from Something Gray
About: My name is Lorin. I am a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend, an artist. I believe in God, tradition and sharing the little things that mean something. I believe in making things by hand. I believe in sharing stories from the past with my children. I believe in the comfort of family. I believe in my creativeness. Eleven years ago my mom taught me how to sew on her antique Singer sewing machine. At that time, a new chapter in my story began…
As a child, my bed was always made with vintage chenille bedspreads. My mom had a linen closet full to choose from…pink with polka dots, white with scrolls, peach with flowers, yellow with lines, cream with tufts, green with circles. There was something about the way they felt. The stories that traveled with them. I adored them. When my kids were born, I started collecting bedspreads for their rooms at local flea markets, estate sales and antique stores. I found that many were in perfect condition and many were damaged, but there was a pull at my heart to take them home anyway. Little did I know, at that time, that I was preparing for a dream I hadn’t yet dreamt. Within a few months, my son was ready to sit up in the grocery cart. I wanted a grocery cart cover for him but I didn’t love the ones in the store. This would be the first big project at the sewing machine with my mom. We created a pattern and used pale blue striped chenille. A few years later, my kids grew older and I spent more time at the sewing machine. I spent even more time collecting vintage fabrics and linens. One day, I saw my daughter toddling around and I felt she needed a little friend to carry everywhere with her. The first “Hugger” I made was a lopsided, fuzzy, pink cat. I look at it now and smile. It wasn’t quite the vision I had but over time, and many attempts, it became exactly like I saw it in my heart. Then, my friend’s daughter was losing a tooth and she wanted a tooth fairy pillow. I took my tooth fairy idea to the Singer. I hand stamp the word TOOTH on each small pocket. The more I started sewing with vintage chenille, the stronger I felt about only using the bedspreads that had been damaged over time. I couldn’t bring myself to cut into a perfect bedspread that had made it through so many years without being damaged. So, the good ones got tucked away in my linen closet and now they cover my daughter’s bed and I feel such joy in my heart as I pass by her room. It reminds me of home.

A seasoned Long Island real estate agent and dedicated entrepreneur, Lisa’s main priority and inspiration when heading into every project is simple: to help people. Lisa has always had a passion for anything and everything real estate-related, working tirelessly to find the perfect house for her clients in order for them to, with no hesitation, call it home.

Your space should not interrupt or distract from life’s most precious moments.
Deborah from Hip and Humble Style
About: Welcoming, cozy and simple are 3 words I’d use to describe our home. I love using vintage pieces and mixing them with newer items giving life to found treasures and heirlooms. I feel more comfortable in a neutral color setting such as creamy whites, blacks, taupe -although I do love color, I usually incorporate it using natural elements such as flowers, greenery, and wood tones. For me, it’s more soothing and less “clutter filled”. I’ve never been one to stick to just one style and feel that most styles can be incorporated and mixed to create your own look and style, not what a book tells you. I’m somewhere between the modern farmhouse meets French rustic meets industrial kind of vibe currently. I’m living and loving the Texas lake life with my high school sweetheart in our recently empty nest. Together we have raised 2 boys who are newly married and our baby girl just graduated from college. My family is most important to me as is my faith (and my fur baby’s) Entertaining is a joy to me and I have been planning birthday parties, holiday events and everything in between for many years, loving every minute of it and still going strong! I love to make my guests feel welcomed and special, so that reflects in the planning and love that goes into a gathering at our home.
Creating a space and surrounding that is comfortable, simple and affordable is so important to me. Therefore, inspiring a look. creating a home means many things to me. A home is more than just a dwelling, it’s where your style is felt all throughout your life in every stage and circumstance.

Lisa from Cottage Style Blog
About: My name is Lisa and my husband and I are empty-nesters who recently moved from New Hampshire – where we lived and pastored for 18 years – to Frederick, MD. Here are a few things about me: I love to travel and my greatest joy is encouraging other pastors/leaders. You will see on my stories on IG that my husband and I often travel to a different state/city each week with my husband’s job. My husband and I have purchased three fixer-upper homes that we’ve turned into Airbnb’s. (We sold one of our local ones but bought another in FL! ) Managing these has been a fun hobby in our “empty-nester” state! I love exploring new cities and I especially love finding new places to eat! (Can I just say that going out to eat is one of my favorite things to do – next to decorating, of course!)Along with that…I love coffee! I enjoy seeing transformations- in people (first and foremost) and in things that are discarded (like furniture and homes). My passion is seeing the forgotten and neglected come to life! My style is simple mixed with a little boho, eclectic, farmhouse and modern. My motto is: thrifty decorating is fun! In fact, one of my favorite places to shop is the local Goodwill.

Chaz from Linen and Flax
About: Linen & Flax was born out of a passion for two of my greatest loves: home and family. My passion has always been to create liveable and inviting spaces where families can be comfortable to live their best life. Places where their best memories are made. Places they are proud to call home. What started as a desire to create that environment for our family grew into the opportunity to do the same for friends and neighbors. One by one, they invited me into their homes and trusted me with their spaces. Over time I began to trust myself. Linen & Flax originally launched in October 2015 as a full-service operation offering design, renovations, and new home construction projects. We hosted a Linen & Flax launch party in our home and every guest who joined us left asking the same question: Where can I buy your furnishings and accessories? Two months later, we provided an answer by opening the Linen & Flax Home store on Canton Street in the heart of downtown Roswell, Georgia. The store features everything from furniture to accessories for any home. Linen & Flax expanded again in 2018 by moving to a larger space on Canton Street and utilizing the original location to open Linen & Flax Apparel. It seemed only natural to offer the same beautiful, livable apparel for your everyday lifestyle. Today, Linen & Flax has transformed beyond just design services, home products, and storefronts. We are a team dedicated to building a lifestyle brand that reflects who we are and all we hold dear—providing you with the pieces of home and lifestyle that set the scene for memories to be made and real-life to be lived.

Jade from Finders Keepers Design Interior Blog
About: So, I decided to do a little “get to know you” for those of you who have just recently started following me and my business! My name is Jade Bennett and I live in Mesa, Arizona. Go Devils! (Just kidding. I just really wanted to say something prideful about my home state. It was either that or “Go cactus!”) I graduated from the American Institute of Interior Design in Fountain Hills. One of my favorite things my instructor, Judy, ever taught me was, “trust the flowers to be beautiful!” I bit of knowledge I have found true in any well designed room. I have worked around town at various furniture stores and home decor boutiques, but about 3 years ago I started Finders Keepers Design. I specialized in refinishing old furniture. I love seeing beautiful old pieces find new life and energy with just a coat of paint! Recently I have taken the natural step back to my roots of interior design and I am loving being in your homes and helping you find your own personal sense of style.

Jackie from Finding Lovely Interior Blog
About: Welcome friends! Finding lovely started with the hope of living with intention and inspiring creativity in myself and others. It began during an exhausting season of baby colic and toddler woes, in which I decided (for my sanity) to pour my heart into the purposeful act of choosing to see lovely all around, seeing it in my home, seeing it in my babies, seeing it in others and the spaces they call home. Naming what is good can go a long way to pulling you through some hard days. My husband and I moved to Boston in 2008 so I could complete a clinical internship and masters degree in nutrition from Boston University. A few years later, we walked through infertility and all those woes, having our first son in 2014 through IVF. At 12 weeks pregnant he was diagnosed with Fibular Hemimelia. Although far from the journey I thought I’d have, it is perfect and good because we chose to define “good” in light of eternity and God’s grace. He has bilateral below the knee prosthetics and is a great gift. You can read all about his story and my momma heart moments here on this blog because there’s lovely there.In Spring 2015, unknowingly pregnant with our surprise 2nd son, (funny how those things work!) we purchased a fixer upper. Built in 1879 in Wellesley, Massachusetts, she needed some love and we’re pouring that in to her. A California girl in a very New England place, our home is an inspiration of west coast calm, layers of textures, neutrals, ocean hues, and windows, windows, windows. I’m enjoying the journey to pretty spaces–spaces I feel inspire to raise my babies and love our community. Join us as we go room by room, project by project and adventure to adventure, finding the lovely.
Andrea from Pine and Prospect Home
My mom was a homemaker, and I have three amazing siblings who are now my best friends and biggest supporters. What I remember from growing up is not so much what our beautiful home looked like, but how my parents made home feel. It was a safe place – a place of comfort and warmth. My Dad never talked about money being scarce, even though looking back I still have no idea how he raised four kids on his small income. All he talked about was how good God was, how we had so much to be thankful for. My Mom was a constant in my life. Walking through our front door and smelling dinner on the stove, seeing candles lit and hearing her music – usually a beautiful film score – in the background is what I remember from home. In the winter time there were fires burning in the fireplace and Mom was always baking something delicious. This was home to me. I met my husband in 9th grade. We married after college and I so desperately wanted to provide him with that same feeling of home that I had grown up with. We had a tiny rental and barely any money, but I did my best to make it a place of rest and warmth. In 2012 my dreams came true when we were able to purchase our very own house. It needed a lot of work, but I could see the potential and the promise that it had. Four years, two little boys, and so many projects later, I have tried so hard to make this house beautiful outwardly. But more important to me than how our house looks, is how I make home feel for my family.

In 2014, I started designing our dream home, a farmhouse in a Philadelphia suburb we now call home. A Tennessee girl at heart, I like to think we brought the south up north! The design process inspired me to share DIYs, design and decor ideas with sneaks inside our new home. The entire building process has inspired a whole new creative outlet for me…interior design and styling. I hope to inspire others through my sweet and simple style.
Darla from Darla Powell Interiors
About: Darla brings a fun, genuine, down-to-earth approach to designing beautiful spaces. Since she launched her career in 2016, clients have fallen in love with her work, growing her business almost exclusively by word of mouth. That’s right. In her past life, Darla spent almost 20 years as a Detective Sergeant in Miami, Florida.
The two careers are more similar than you may think. Of course, as an interior designer there are 100% fewer shots fired (well, maybe 99%). One might say she is an expert on the importance of having complete tranquility at home after a stressful day at work.
Her background has carried over so many hidden perks including a strong sense of integrity, accountability, and a ready-for-anything-ness that is key for home renovation projects.
Did it turn out that the hideous Grecian column WAS load-bearing? Darla does not shock easily. Did a flash flood just drown your timeline? Darla will be your literal calm in the storm. Or perhaps the construction team just knocked down a wall to reveal the previous owner’s suitcase of unmarked bills and fake passports? Darla will be uniquely equipped in this situation. Her career transformation was fueled by a need to express her boundless creativity.
After endless childhood summers spent rummaging through her grandmother’s antique store, she developed an extensive knowledge of antiques, collectibles, and pieces that look perfect together. Darla’s refined eye definitely sees those diamonds hiding in the rough. Or maybe you prefer the rough over diamonds. She sees that too.
Above all, Darla loves creating rooms that are gorgeous, elegant, and soothing. Get ready to fall in love with your space.
