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.

My Style

We currently are living in our 6th (and hopefully last home) on a lake in east Texas. We’ve been very busy the last two years taking a very dark, outdated home and making it our own. Because of its open floor plan, keeping things neutral and cohesive are important as is the “less is more concept”.

Living with purpose and intention is my current goal.

our home



Welcome , I’m Deborah! 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.

About Me

my why / history

I love everything about family & friends. Gatherings both small and large are so much fun to me. When I entertain, creating a beautiful space that is welcoming, cozy and simple is always my goal.

I love sharing my journey of designing, creating, entertaining and styling to inspire and encourage others to create their own style. To help create beauty in your home and share what I have learned over the years. This little space is a place for me to share past & current projects, designs tips I’ve learned from, with fashion & styling ideas to stay updated. It makes me so happy when I hear that one of my followers has been inspired to create something that I shared and that is my “why”!

Surround yourself with a style of your own and things that make you happy and you will be HOME.
