Welcome to Our Southern Home

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Our Southern Home started in 2012. It has evolved into a lifestyle brand featuring affordable ways to decorate your home. I'd describe my style as eclectic traditional leaning toward #grandmillennial. I love to infuse French and English accents. Blue and white #chinoiserie style is a favorite.

You'll also find monthly thrift store projects, simple recipes, lots of seasonal decorating ideas, and a bit of travel mixed in.
