Home is where some of our very best moments happen. It’s where you can put on your comfy pants and eat out of the ice cream carton without judgment. I believe home is the most important place on the planet. If your home is a place that speaks to your soul--a place you love to live in—it changes your life. Beautiful, functional, personal, and it’s all possible under a budget.
I’ve honed my DIY and design skills by renovating homeswith my husband and partner, Jon, and designing beautiful and meaningful spaces without spending a fortune. Whether it’s through thrifting and scouting out the very best finds, putting together a high-end room with a save/splurge attitude, or throwing the perfect party, I thrive off of a design challenge. My projects have been featured on the pages of Better Homes & Gardens, HGTV Magazine, Redbook, Parents, Woman’s Day, and more. I’ve won Blog of the Year by BHG and was a top five finalist for the Home & Family Next DIY Star. I’m also an Emmy and Murrow award winning journalist. Sharing design projects and tips on camera is my favorite medium.
Whether it’s with design clients, on our Stagg Design blog, YouTube channel, Heart of the Home Podcast, Pinterest and social media channels, or Stagg Design Shop (our custom line of pillows, wallpapers, and home products), I’ve helped thousands of people create beautiful spaces.
