First Row

Chári Herndon of Chic Home Style is a Certified Interior Decorator and Home Stager. She has always had a passion for decorating. She eventually decided to take the plunge into the new-age hobby called blogging. Her husband thought it would be a way to turn her love for decorating and styling into a hobby. Chári and her husband are both from Atlanta. After moving to Florida, they then settled in Texas, where Chári re-decorated their apartment in uptown Houston. When Chári isn’t busy working with clients, she enjoys working at Tiffany & Co.

Nina Hendrick, a self-taught designer, originally founded her blog and company Enchanting Details in 2010. Today, Nina Hendrick Design Company, LLC is a thriving business and blog. It covers a wide range of topics, including interior and graphic design, organizing, and celebrations. Nina loves helping shape happy homes. She has been featured by Better Homes and Gardens, Country Living, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Today, DIY Network, The Huffington Post, Bob Vila and more! “Down time” includes tackling projects with her husband, Mack, in their 1980s fixer-upper. Her best accomplishments are her children; Logan, Cooper and Lyla. The Hendricks love visiting their lake cabin and playing on the beach with their golden retriever Lucy. In rare quiet moments, Nina can be found with a book, cozy blanket and a warm mug of black coffee (or even a glass of wine!).

Katie, the blogger behind Addicted 2 DIY, began her DIY journey with her husband after buying their forever home. The projects never end. She started her blog as a way share with and encourage others to take on their own DIY projects and do so on a budget. Her goal is to take people outside of their comfort zone and show them that just about anyone can DIY.

Second Row

Leslie created Deeply Southern Home to share creative, affordable ideas for updating your home with style, livable beauty and purpose. Often, these ideas include building projects with detailed instructions and plans for the designs. She hopes that you will find joy in creating a happier home using your own two hands. She encourages readers to try to something new with every project! Her motto is, “You never know you can’t do something unless you try.”

Gloribell has always loved design. Ever since she was a little girl, design has been the main motor in her life. Most of her background knowledge comes from being a graphic designer for more than 15 years. But because of her natural design skills, she had to look for other ways to translate and communicate how she felt about colors, symmetry, decor and every little detail in between. Now that she’s become an Interior Decorator/Designer, her new-found love is more than a hobby. Check out her blog Know How She Does It.

Darnetha is a wife and mother to three amazingly active bambini. Her blog, ChippaSunshine, is a place for her to document her journey through life. Darnetha’s passion is for a simple life where she lives in the moment and enjoys. Here you will read everything from basic life happenings to decorating, cooking, inspirations and DIY projects.

Third Row

Laura Stewart is the owner and creator of the blog Junque Cottage. Before publishing her first post, Laura spent years teaching herself how to tackle DIY and home renovation projects. Through these projects, she discovered her love of design and home decor. Laura’s main focus on her blog is to prove that anyone can decorate and with a little knowledge and willingness to learn, you can tackle those home projects yourself. When not blogging or remodeling, Laura enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter. She enjoys living in the heart of Texas on their recently purchased farm.

Sara first began her blog, Twelve on Main, as a creative outlet, prompted on a whim by her husband. Now, her main goal is to inspire and encourage others to DIY. She believes there is potential in everyone, and wants to show that it is possible to any project, whether simple or complex, in their homes.

Kendra Williams, co-owner of Momtique, blogs about her passion for painting furniture, collecting antiques and DIY projects on a budget. Kendra’s love for decorating began when she became discontented with her minimalist, modern home style. Once she found a love of thrifting, antiquing and DIY, she began to transition her decor to French chic one treasure at a time. She uses her current experience in her rented 1,050 square foot 1950s track home in Sacramento, CA. She wants to encourage and empower renters to create a beautiful home with carefully selected furniture and decor. Kendra also participates in a monthly vintage market. There, she is able to pass on her love of painted furniture, antiques and vintage items. If she’s not antiquing, transforming furniture, or doing a DIY project, she’s spending time with her husband and three young boys.

Fourth Row

Sisters Meg and Steph, owners of Do It Yourself Divas LLC, inspire others to create the life they dream of on a budget. Their tutorials have been featured on the Today Show, The Chew, Fisher-Price and more. Their mission is to help others realize that if they can dream it, they can DIY it! With seven years of blogging experience and millions of page views, they are a go-to source for all things DIY. From sewing swimmable mermaid tails to remodeling a kitchen, they have a tutorial for everything. When not creating, Meg and Steph can be found spending time with their families, usually trying to decide what’s for dinner, folding 20 loads of laundry, and trying to remember to water the dying plants.

Classy Clutter began in July 2010 when two moms were itching to share their creative projects and ideas with the world. Mallory and Savannah both grew up in Mesa, Arizona and come from big families. They have known each other since high school. Even their husbands are great friends! The Classy Clutter husbands became friends in high school, too, and both played on the same football team (Go Toros!). After both married, they spent a lot of time together on double dates with their new husbands. Now fast forward eight years later and they now have eight kids between the two of them! Mallory has four boys (Carter, Parker, Tanner and Palmer). Savannah has three girls (Leesie, Millie and Adelaide) and a boy (Ryder).
