Feeling a little lost and overwhelmed when it comes to decorating your home?

Don't know where to start?

Do you buy all.the.things for your home only to discover not one of them was the right thing after all?

Do you have 3,659 Pinterest boards filled with home decorating inspiration - and still have no idea where to start?

Overwhelmed by all the 'expert' advice?

Have you read every single how-to-decorate post ever written...only to feel like a deer caught in the headlights, unable to move in any direction with your own decorating?

Can't seem to choose the right things?

All you want is to have a beautiful home
you can feel comfortable in...


The truth is, it shouldn't be complicated. 

Creating the beautiful home you desire shouldn't be stressful.

You shouldn't be afraid to buy decor because you think you'll hate it, or be so paralyzed by fear that you don't do anything at all.

Decorating your home should be a process that is fun and stress-free!

After all your home is a direct extension and expression of you...

a space where you can BE YOURSELF!

So let's take a deep breath and start at the beginning...
Finding out what makes your space uniquely yours.

I want to empower you to discover your personal decorating style so that you know exactly where to start and how to confidently decorate your own home.

That's why I created the
'5 Steps to Discover Your Personal Style' guide.


“I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons of my life and that decorating properly/successfully is NOT as complicated as it once seemed!!!”

– Sheryl R. 

Hello Beautiful!

I'm Shannon. I am a designer, writer, wife and homeschooling momma. 

I remember how I felt in our first house. I was ecstatic. After all our newlywed and college apartments, we finally had a house. But I was stumped. I had no idea where to start decorating. For real. NO IDEA!

I decided to study photos of homes that I loved. I visited model homes, scoured design and decorating magazines and poured over catalogs. 

Until, I finally – finally – figured out how to put everything together to make our whole house cozy and beautiful., step-by-step and one room at a time…So now YOU can skip the learning curve and get straight to creating the home you love.



That's why it's my mission to help you
create your own cozy and beautiful home

"My ah-ha moment was when I realized how much time and money we have spent in the past couple of years because I was going about things all the wrong way. I have painted rooms, changed decor and bought things over and over again and just could not get comfortable. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. We did not focus on our true design style and never finished a room. It caused us to purchase things we didn't love. Now we have re-focused. It is really exciting and I am falling in love with our home all over again."

- Cheryl P.
