About …

I’m Karen – the blogger, photographer, creator, and DIY’er behind DecorHint. I’m a wife and mom of 2 living in North Carolina.

After working in technology and then again in real estate – I hit the pause button on my career to stay home to raise kids. During that time, I started DecorHint (2017, to be exact), writing articles and doing projects in between naps and diaper changes.

Today, DecorHint is a full-time interior design website publishing hundreds of in-depth tutorials, home design projects, and lifestyle content every year. When I hit the publish button on my first article here, I never envisioned that this blog would grow into what it is today! I feel incredibly fortunate to be doing what I love for a living.

DecorHint has been featured in publications such as Pioneer Woman, Hunker, Yahoo, Bustle, Pottery Barn Teen, Apartment Therapy, CraftGawker, Pretty Handy Girl, Shutterfly, Redfin, and Buzzfeed.

Decor Hint is all about…

Home, DIY & Lifestyle.

It’s a blog filled with hints of inspiration and how-tos. I take inspiration from everywhere these days. Whether I’m inspired by recreating a favorite piece of furniture, a book, an Amazon find, or inspired by travel – I love sharing it all with you. Here’s a snippet of what you’ll find here on the blog:

  • Hints of DIY: how to make the things you see in stores for a lot less.
  • Hints of Décor: passing along the decorating tips I’ve learned.
  • Hints of Beautiful Things: sharing my favorite products and inspirations.
  • Hints of Holiday: seasonal décor and DIY projects for the Holidays.
  • Hints of Lifestyle: a little bit of this and a little bit of that (fashion, travel, photography, even food!)

Let’s talk DIY for a second. I’m incredibly passionate about woodworking and encourage you to metaphorically ‘pick up that hammer.’ I’ve been able to build some beautiful pieces for our home with not a lot of money at all.

If you want to start, check out this list of easy wood projects for your home. But if paint or crafts are more your thing – I got you covered there too.

I also love finding new home goods for you. It’s one of my favorite things ever. Check out my Amazon page for all my favorite finds there – and be sure to check out my home finds for Best of the Best lists – like washable rugs, leather sofas, accent chairs, and more.

You’ll get many tips and hints for styling, organizing, and cleaning your home. I’m a certified clean freak, and I think the vacuum was one of the greatest inventions ever.

I hope this blog offers you hints of inspiration to keep you busy and living life creatively.

I promise to keep creating for you, sharing with you, and hopefully inspiring you. I would LOVE to hear from you if you want to get in touch. You can contact me here.

You can also follow me on FacebookPinterest, or Instagram. Check out my shops on LTK and Amazon to get direct links to my favorite products. And finally, be sure to sign up for my newsletter so you can stay up to date on all the latest.

Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet today. I hope you decide to stay a while.
