Hi, Thank you for visiting Happy Haute Home!
I’m Denise and welcome to my home decor and lifestyle blog. I started my blog three years ago as a hobby to share the many homes projects I have taken on over the years and to inspire others to make home their dream home. My site is filled with inspiration such as home improvement, garden, landscape and backyard ideas, home tours, decorating and styling tips, DIY’S, tutorials, seasonal table settings, recipes, beauty tips, travel and much more.
Encouraging my readers to explore style, DIY, renovation and remodel projects has been a dream come true. In addition to successes, I have my fair share of failures which I discuss as well, because failing is how we learn to avoid mistakes in the future.
My blog has a heavy focus on “Home Decor and Home Renovation”. Along with the “pretty” things on my site, you will find other information on the maintenance aspect of our homes, like sump pumps, septic systems, roofing, AC units, cleaning, and home hacks. I strive to make my blog a place you can go to find “all things home”. You will also find Lifestyle post on my blog, such as How to Care for Our Aging Parents along with money saving tips.
I started my blog the end of 2016. Before that I had a full-time career, working in Finance. In late 2014, I left all that behind to focus attention on my family and home life, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I have been married to my wonderful husband for over 15 years and have two incredible children.
My passion for everything home started when I was young. Growing up in a European household influenced my love of home decor. Trips to Europe throughout my life has shaped my love of architecture and design. I am inspired by European style, such as French design. I have incorporated many different styles into our homes such as traditional, modern farmhouse, contemporary, transitional, rustic, and industrial design.
I strive to make our home a place that is casually elegant, warm, welcoming, fun, and a place we love to be. We have moved several times, remodeling and redecorating extensively with each move, and my style has developed over the years, changed with the times, and is still being refined today.
We presently live in a French Country Home that needs a lot of work. I am certainly no expert in home decor, but I do have the passion and desire to share my journey with you and create our “best home”. You may have noticed that we recently painted the exterior of our home white! Check out the blog for all the details!
I’m so glad you dropped in to say Hi. Have a cup of tea, sit down, make yourself comfortable and take a tour. Join me on a journey to creating a “Happy Haute Home”.
