I’m Shauna Mailloux. I believe that the appreciation of aesthetics is a God-given blessing to indulge. Beautiful matters. Like many others, I feel that I am deeply influenced by my environment, which is why I strive to make my surroundings beautiful and uplifting.
I am a maker and I take great satisfaction in creating things with my own hands, especially when it comes to turning a house into a home. It is a constant balancing of striving to live in a beautiful & inspiring environment without wanting to idolize my home. The goal is to live in a place that brings you joy so you are able to then share that with others.
I grew up in Pennsylvania, where I graduated college with a studio art degree.
I dated my high school sweetheart for six wonderful years before our wedding two summers ago.
My husband, Phil, is in the Air Force, so we’ll be making a bittersweet transition this summer from our first home to Montgomery, Alabama!
This blog is where I share the projects that are energizing me at the moment – home improvement and decor, DIY crafts and projects, event planning – all things creative and visually pleasing! I especially love the challenge of creating and renovating on a tight budget using upcycled or repurposed items. My goal is to inspire others to bring out their creative side and make life beautiful!
