No matter where you live, you need a “spot” that’s just for you. It’s a place where you can go to rest, rejuvenate, and hide from the world. For some, that’s a room or a chair or a home or a garden. I’m pretty lucky – for me, it’s both home and garden. And while I had a hard time decorating homes and apartments where I knew we were only there for a few years, it’s different here. This is our house – and I want it to reflect who we are as people and as a family.
Your Home and Garden is YOUR spot
Your style won’t be the same as mine. Mine isn’t the same as anyone else’s. And that’s okay. Because when we can look at different places for ideas and inspiration, that helps us find our style. At least, that’s how it worked for me. So in case you’re in the same “I kinda need to see lots of ideas for inspiration” boat as I am, this is your place, too.

“My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece.” ― Claude Monet
“A garden should make you feel you’ve entered privileged space — a place not just set apart but reverberant — and it seems to me that, to achieve this, the gardener must put some kind of twist on the existing landscape, turn its prose into something nearer poetry.” ― Michael Pollan, Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education
“I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.” ― Ruth Stout
We love being at home – and not just because we’re homebodies. It’s because we’re actively working to make our home and garden beautiful inside and out. But it’s more than just that. We’re also working to make it a warm, inviting place where our family, friends, and guests also feel welcome.We are working to make our home and garden a warm, inviting place where our family, friends, and guests also feel welcome. #welcomehome
