Hi there, My Way Home readers! I’m Diane from In My Own Style, a blog where I write about all things creative, colorful, and DIY. My background in display introduced me to the wonderful world of DIY decorating and design. When my husband and I bought our first house, we didn’t have a big budget so I used tricks I’d learned over the years. My blog is where I continue to share budget-friendly decorating ideas....

Hi everyone! This is Liz from Shorely Chic, a blog that’s all about embracing the beach chic lifestyle through interior design, fashion, home décor, and entertaining. I live for beach style and have discovered the best way to work into your home is through subtle hints of natural elements brought indoors, and by mirroring the colors, textures, and shapes associated with the coast. Here are my top five picks of how to bring the beach home: 1. Wherever you...

Baked Sweet Potato Chips
Baked Sweet Potato Chips
Liren Baker
A pile of workbooks and marble notebooks stacked on one side, neatly covered textbooks on the other, I would tackle my homework diligently. My sharp number two pencil would roll off the table and I would sneak a glance at my mother in the kitchen as I picked it up off the floor. She was at the stove, dropping thinly sliced sweet potatoes into the frying pan. Using a slotted spoon, she retrieved them,...

I’m Meg Farrar, a graphic designer here at Wayfair, a DIY enthusiast, and writer of my blog Operation Restoration, where my boyfriend and I are attempting to renovate our 100-year-old house on our own (at least the best of our capabilities). We recently experienced something that neither one of us ever thought would happen…be on a national TV show! Photo Credit: Somerville Beat We were selected to be filmed for a national (and...

Hi Wayfair readers! It's Aileen and Ellen from Love & Lavender again. Today we wanted to share about registering. Registering is one of the most fun things to do when getting married.

However it can be really...

Earlier this summer, I styled a shoot for Cape Cod Home Magazine alongside my favorite New England photographer, Stacey Hedman.  A dream project of sorts, the home’s gorgeous bones and existing furniture made styling easy as pie. Of all of the beautiful features, my favorite space was the mudroom. Photo Credit: Cape Cod Home Magazine Wicker baskets for dog leashes, cubby holes, wellies, and hooks for raincoats ensure that the mud and snow will stay...

Hey Wayfairers! Dana from House*Tweaking here. The name's Dana and tweaking's my game. I have a (good or bad?) habit of seeing the hidden potential in anything home-related. So when my dad mentioned sprucing up his porch, I couldn't help but put my spin on things. Read on to see what happened.. My dad and stepmom have the most amazing wrap-around porch that overlooks an Ohio valley. Recently, they acquired a circular outdoor sofa for a steal...

Soy-Sesame Grilled Fish
Soy-Sesame Grilled Fish
Liren Baker
Do you ever get stuck in a rut? A meat and poultry rut? I have to admit that sometimes, I do. Our dinners will rotate through the same proteins: pork, beef, turkey, chicken. And then, almost as an afterthought, I’ll remember to add the fish. In my case, it’s simply forgetfulness, because truth be told, I love fish. Adore it. I suppose what is hard for me is that I prefer to purchase my seafood...

Organizing Your Entry for Cooler Weather
Organizing Your Entry for Cooler Weather
Cristin Priest
Back in June I discussed ways to Organize Your Entry. Today with fall just around the corner (yikes, I know!), I’d like to share ideas for transitioning your entry or mudroom for the cooler and wet weather ahead. Photo Credit: Wayfair Keep it Outside. Keeping mud, dirt, and snow outside where it belongs is step #1 in preparing your mudroom or entryway for the cooler months ahead. Place a boot scraper on a porch, near the...

Decorate With Red, White and Every Shade Of Blue
Kate Smith
Spirited and bold, this all-American color scheme sings out that summer is still here, even if Labor Day is our ceremonious surrender to fall. Join in with your own chorus of patriotic hues, and if you’re feeling really adventurous, try mixing in aquas and teals to blend your blues. What better place to start than outside where everyone can get a glimpse of your red, white, and blue scheme? An outdoor porch or patio stands...

Treasures, Not Trash
Treasures, Not Trash
Matthew Mead
I'm a shopper. It doesn't matter where, when, or why, but I am always on the hunt for items to help cultivate my personal style. If I’m not online shopping, I’m most likely at a flea market or junk shop looking for deals on items that can be reborn in my home as accents all my own. This year, I wrote a book titled Flea Market Finds. It is filled with on how to turn great...
