I am Leslie, a south Louisiana native living and loving life in Birmingham, Alabama. I am deeply southern at my core. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself over the years, it is that I am a deeply passionate person. Adding “deeply” to the blog title made perfect sense. While I may not have an overly thick southern accent, I am passionate about my heritage and creating a home that is welcoming, just like your grandma’s (or your MiMi’s or your MawMaw’s) hug. My personal style is not your grandma’s traditional though. Just like a delicious pot of gumbo filled with all kinds of goodness, I can embrace just about any genre of home design. But I find myself most deeply rooted in a fresh take on traditional.
So even if you aren’t Southern I hope to inspire you to create a home you love, with rooms you are inspired to live in and most importantly, a sanctuary to call home. I think everyone can relate to that notion.
My goal with Deeply Southern Home is to share creative, affordable ideas for updating your home with style, livable beauty and purpose. Often, these ideas include building projects with detailed instructions and plans for the designs. My vision and hope for this blog is that you will find joy in creating a happy home and learn to make something with your own two hands, even if it is something you’ve never done before!
You never know you can’t do something unless you try.
I’d love to keep you up to date on the latest projects and ideas here at Deeply Southern Home. I update as often as I can, but the best way to follow along is by getting new posts via email. You can sign up here.
