Shannon Acheson is the writer, photographer and designer behind the popular home decor blog Home Made Lovely. Through Home Made Lovely, she has realized her dream of decorating her home for a living, as well as creating all day long! Shannon's favorite things to create are budget-friendly decor pieces that look more expensive than they are.
Shannon always wanted to be an interior designer. But when a high school guidance counselor told her there were no jobs in that field, she pursued graphic design instead. Years later, after moving to the suburbs with her husband and three homeschooled kids, Shannon discovered home decor and DIY blogs. She decided to start her own blog, to chronicle the adventures of fixing up a run-down, war-era bungalow she and her family were living in at the time. Four houses and many years later, Shannon can't imagine doing anything else!
Shannon has a book coming out in the fall of 2020 that's full of ideas for exactly how to make your home more lovely. You can see more of Shannon's decorating ideas, crafts, DIY projects and recipes at www.homemadelovely.com.
