Hey there…we are Vicki and Jenn – a mother/daughter design duo from Georgia that has a passion for decorating home interiors. Here’s a bit more about us.
I’m Vicki, the mother portion of our design duo.
Home decor has been a passion of mine, ever since I was a little girl. Growing up, I had the very best role model – my own mother. She was an expert at making our house a home. We had very little money, but mom could stretch a budget farther than anyone. She sewed her own curtains, tablecloths and placemats. Mom also crafted large topiary trees, made centerpieces from old record albums and so much more.
Needless to say, the home decor designer gene is strong with me. I vividly remember a time when I was 8 years old and I re-designed my entire bedroom. I moved all of the furniture by myself, changed out my artwork and turned my comforter on the “wrong” side for a new look. In later years, I too learned to sew and I taught myself how to macrame’.
In my married life, I have lived in several states. Each house that we lived in had a different style. It was so fun to discover the charm of each house. We have lived in a new Victorian, a new townhouse, a 1930’s cottage bungalow (my favorite), a vintage Colonial, and a large traditional home. I pride myself on making each of our homes warm, cozy and inviting.
My current home is a single-story town home in a wonderful community. Initially, this was our vacation home. After my husband’s early retirement, we decided to downsize and move to the townhouse full-time. Initially, I missed the big-city life of Atlanta, but now you couldn’t pull me away. Especially since Jenn and her family (our new baby Everett) moved just 25 minutes away!
Family and friends mean everything to me! I am probably most happy entertaining in my home surrounded by the ones I love! I am also passionate about home decor, thrifting, painting furniture, crafting, cooking and creating a home that I am proud of.
I can’t wait to share more ideas with you. Thanks for being here!
And I’m Jenn, the daughter portion of the design duo.
Just like mom, I have had a love for home decor since a young age, which clearly comes from both her and my granny. I can’t remember how many times we would all go thrifting and antiquing together. Although mom is notorious for going into each and every stall, which as a young child would start to get a little tiring haha. However now I’m kind of the same way. Like mother like daughter!
Growing up I would love re-decorating my room and mom and I would have the most fun working on it together. Into adulthood not much has changed. The first house I ever got to fully decorate was the house I lived in during college, which I loved. Ever since then I have always taken pride in the decorating of the homes I’ve lived in.
After living in older homes in my adult life (my last house was a 1901 Victorian), my wife and I decided to move from Atlanta to a wonderful small town in Georgia called Madison. It is definitely quaint town and we couldn’t be happier. We also wanted a change of pace from the busy life in the city now that we’ve welcomed baby bee, Everett. Isn’t he a cutie?
My design style is certainly eclectic, as I like to pull from different aesthetics, such as boho, farmhouse, and vintage. Aside from decorating, I also love baking and trying new recipes. I can’t wait to show you more decor and design inspiration!
