Hello! Thank you for joining me here on my blog.
My name is Melanie Keller and I currently live in Chadds Ford , PA with my husband and 3 children.
Since I was a little girl decorating and remodeling my own bedroom I have wanted to be an Interior Decorator. I would paint and repaint my bedroom all the time, luckily for me my parents didn’t mind as long as I did all the work.
Instead of going to college for decor and design I went for Finance. The complete opposite direction of my dream job. Fortunately my Finance degree paid off in the form of owning my own businesses when my husband and I started having children. We are the lucky owners of the Childcare Franchise, Willowdale Children’s Academy.
For fun and love of all things design and decor we also own a real estate investment company where we flip houses. My husband and his partner do the work and I do the design… we are a match made in heaven. We have completed quite a few projects and with each one we learn more and more. We love taking something that has been neglected and giving it new life!
Our most recent project is our 1700s Chester County Farmhouse. We recently bought a 12 acre farm and with the farm came 2 houses and a bunch of barns that need to be renovated or demolished. The demolition work has been completed and now we are working on the renovation of the farmhouse. Every single inch of this farmhouse will be touched to bring it back to life, with my little twist and style added. While I have a true appreciation for the history this will be my first personally owned house in which every single room with be designed by me. We are having a blast working through this renovation and will document it all right here!
Along with our farmhouse project I plan to blog about some of my favorite things in life. In addition to design and decor I have an addiction to shoes, my former shoe closet was as big as my clothes closet. Right now sweaters, cute jeans or comfy leggings with boots are my go-to outfit! I love a cute bag, scarves and hats. I don’t wear earrings ever, they hurt my ears and I end up taking them out anyway. Bangles and long necklaces are my favorite accessories. I am a total foodie and love Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. We also try to hit up any restaurant that was on the show when we travel! My husband and I LOVE to travel, and take at least 4-5 trips per year. They don’t have to be far, we just like to explore and see sights that are new to us. My favorite foods are pizza and high quality dark chocolate. One of my clients at the school is a blogger for chocolate and I have tried many of hers. The darker the chocolate the more I love it!
Thanks for being here with me and following my farmhouse renovation journey and anything else life throws at me in the mean time!
