Hi! I am so glad you are here! My name is Marley and I am a Wife and Mother to teen twin boys. This blog was born out of a life-long love of design. 21 Sunshine Avenue was the charming New England Cape I grew up in and still hold dear to my heart. I guess you could say this is where my love affair with classic, timeless design began.
This is a design and lifestyle blog. Bottom line: I enjoy pretty, styled spaces, good food, travel and am a coffee connoisseur. My personal design aesthetic is Traditional, but I like to infuse the “unexpected” and modern touches along the way to add interest to a space. Creating and decorating on a budget is truly one of my passions! I enjoy a bargain and love a “simple” DIY or just “shopping the house” and rearranging! I also love to cook and simply “make things pretty”.
Making a house a “home” and a comfortable dwelling that suits your family (even on a realistic budget;) is my passion. One should be surrounded by the things they love and what brings joy to their life. Teaching is what I love and was meant to do. Although not in a classroom anymore, it is my desire to help people achieve their dream spaces. Everyone is entitled to a lovely home no matter their budget; it is my desire to help facilitate this. Whether by rearranging furniture, using what you have, thrifting, easy DIY’s, or utilizing my budget-friendly decorator tips and tricks, you can achieve the space you want…no matter your budget!
I cannot wait to see where my blogging journey takes me and look forward to educating and sharing my love for home, design and living with you!
Thanks for stopping by:)
