Hello and welcome to Laurie Jones Home (that’s me Laurie Jones).
I recently moved to Nevada with my husband and son after living in Indianapolis for more than 14 years. My daughter is attending college in Chicago and I miss her terribly!
I have been blogging since 2009. During that time I quit my job as a paralegal and went back to school to study interior design. During my time in Indy I opened a booth at an antique store. I have sold my merchandise at some really cool local stores in Indianapolis. I’m hoping to expand and open my own small store soon!
On October 15th, 2012 my world as I knew it changed and after several heart breaking losses I finally had my beautiful baby boy. Through this journey I learned I needed to slow down, enjoy my family and enjoy the process of making my house into a home. I took this attitude further when we decided to make the move to Nevada in 2017. We sold 75% of our belongings and bought a house half the size of our last one. Today life is about slow decorating and making every moment count!
I’ve learned with turning 40 being ok with not following what everyone else is doing. I love interior design, love knowing what the trends are but I also don’t feel the need to make my home look like everyone else’s. My style is all over the place, I love traditional, modern, clean lines with some nature elements thrown into the mix! I have no problem investing on pieces that are going to stand the test of time, but still love a great thrift store find too!
Like many bloggers my blogging has slowed down considerably but I still try and get something up once a week. You can find me on the daily on Instagram posting updates on our new home.
If you are new to my blog a fun place to start is my furniture page. I love making old pieces new again!
