Hi, I'm Kristen! I'm so glad you're here to visit my home and lifestyle blog, Ella Claire & Co. where I share my favorite holiday and home decor, DIY projects, easy recipes, and entertaining ideas.
I believe that every home, no matter the size or style, can be a beautiful and happy place.
Growing up here in Idaho, I love the slower paced life. Some of my fondest memories are of baking in the kitchen with my mom and sisters, sewing new pillows or curtains for our home, yard sailing on the weekends to find antiques to decorate with, and helping my dad chop wood out back. My husband and I are working toward raising our littles in the same way.
I have had a passion for interior design for as long as I can remember. I would always pour over my mom's magazines and bookmark all of my favorite pages, dreaming of my future home and family. I would also decorate and redecorate my room (and every other room in the house).
I started my first blog back in 2008 to showcase the flowers I created for my special event and wedding clients. In 2012, after I had my first baby, I shifted direction a little and began documenting all of my home decor projects and recipes with this blog, which included sprinkling my love of floral design and entertaining.
I feel so blessed to have this space and to be able to meet all of you. My hope is to leave this world a little more beautiful than I found it- through celebrating the simple, the everyday- the things that make home, home.
Outside of this blog, you can find me hanging out on Instagram and Pinterest.
