Here's what I want for you...

I want your home to be your favorite place.

  • A place where you can enjoy your life with family and friends.
  • A place that reflects who you are.
  • A place that works for everyone. Adults and kiddos alike. And has room for messes and real life.
  • And I want to guide you through the steps to create that place even if you don’t know where to start. Even if you aren’t necessarily crafty. Even if home decor doesn’t come so naturally to you.
  • I want to inspire you and guide you to decorate your home in a way that it can actually be lived in- not just looked at.

Corey - Hey There Home Blog

Hi. I'm Corey.

Super excited to have you here!

[insert virtual high-five]

I love everything home. Yes, I love a beautiful homes, but more importantly I love a home that isn’t so fussy that real life can’t happen.

So I created this place to share what I love. To help you get unstuck when it comes to creating a home you love, and to encourage you to keep on keepin’ on, and take one decision at a time.

It isn’t an overnight thing, but it can happen.

I’m constantly finding inspiration all around me and I love to channel that inspiration and create beautiful and useful things for my home. But more than that, I really enjoy empowering YOU to make your own design decisions.

I’ve always loved home decor. I also love teaching. So when I became a mom and stopped teaching, I decided to marry my two loves and this site and my decorating courses were born.

We are so bombarded with images of beautiful spaces that seem so far from our reality. My job is to take those dreams of how you want your home to be and feel and make them a reality. Let’s start doing!

My hope is that the ideas you find here will inspire you to create a home you love and teach you some simple design concepts to squash your self doubt.

I’m pretty sure we should be friends…

  • I’m not very fancy. Or serious.
  • I love a good laugh. (Even if it means getting caught with my mouth wide open like this.)
  • I have a bit of a potty mouth (although I’m pretty good about turning it off in front of little ears.)
  • I’m horrible at math. But I’m darn good at avoiding it.
  • I taught high school for 8 years. Spanish to English speakers and English to non-native English speakers. I loved it. And was darn good at it.
  • I have 2 kiddos. My little lady is 10 and the little mister is 7.
  • I ask a ton of questions. Sometimes they dare to be the ones no one else is asking. –What can I say, I’m not a huge fan of surface level conversation.
  • My favorite people to be around (besides my little family) are my parents. They taught me everything I know about going after what I want out of life, are my biggest supporters, and best friends.

I’ve got big dreams for my home and how I can help other’s create their perfect space and I’m happy to have you by my side as I make it happen!
