Hi! I’m Heidi, the creative mind, blogger, and influencer behind Eleanor Rose Home! I’m glad you stopped by and hope you will cozy up and stay a while. Here’s a little bit about me and our family…
I am a mother of two beautiful children (& a fur baby). Wife to a supportive husband, who has been the love of my life for the last twenty-one years. I am an Iowa native but have spent most of my life in Massachusetts. I am an Operations Coordinator for a landscape company, and recently an 8th grade homeschool teacher (thank you COVID). I am a perfectionist, introvert, and anxiety sufferer. I am a self proclaimed “homebody”. I love spending time with my family, organizing & decorating my home, home improvement projects, wrapping Christmas gifts (I don’t think I have ever found another lover of gift wrapping!), and shopping (my husband can attest to that as well as the mail delivery services).
I have no design degree or professional decorating experience (I thought going straight to work after high school was a good idea, ha!). However, I have always been told that I have sense for style and fashion. I take inspiration from other bloggers, Pinterest, and the many random ideas that pop into my head. I love a warm farmhouse-cottage style with traditional elements, lots of wallpaper, and clean lines. I can’t stand clutter, and believe that everything has a place. I have an innate need to constantly throw things away to remove clutter which drives my family crazy (I may have created two pack rat children)! Some spaces in my home are updated multiple times until just the right look is achieved. This drives the husband crazy, but sometimes I have to get the idea out or I can’t stop thinking about it!
When not working or doing the things I love you will find me on the couch with my Yorkshire Terrier/Dachshund mix, Eleanor Roosevelt curled up in my arms with the husband sleeping on the next couch over. She is my spirit animal and the inspiration for my blog name. We rescued Ellie from Arkansas 6 years ago, and she has been the apple of our families eyes ever since!
I want to share with you my decorating ideas, the things I love, and the random thoughts that pop into my head! I hope to bring the love of a warm, cozy home into your space. Home is where the heart is and there is no place like home.
Sit back, relax, and stay a while….
