About House Revivals

Welcome to House Revivals
(First, in case you were wondering, the glorious bits of textile print peeking out from my header, is Schumacher's Chian Mai Dragon in alabaster. Isn't it amazing?) 

My name is Amanda, and  I am the mother of three wonderful young adults, mother-in-law to the best son-in-law ever, grandmother to one beautiful toddler, and the wife of my college sweetheart. 

I love creating, especially taking flawed and seemingly un-redeemable cast-offs and finding beauty in them.  I gratefully live in grace each day, knowing that Someone did the same for me.

I believe we are all creative, having been made 
in the image of the One who created all things.

My degree is in interior design, and now days, when I'm not cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, paying bills, walking the dog, or working on a remodel, you will find me designing, drafting, sketching, thrifting, crafting, blogging, and poking my head into attics and crawl spaces. My interior design work is primarily in the fields of residential, kitchen, and light commercial design.

My heart as a designer is for real families, 
with real budgets and busy schedules.

The purpose of this blog is to Revive the way we live in our Houses -- by celebrating creativity, sharing design and remodeling ideas and tips, crafting a little (okay, A LOT), occasionally ranting and waxing philosophical, and always having fun!
