After leaving her job as a graphic designer, Leslie Davis dedicated her time to raising her two children. Never to be without a creative pursuit, Leslie honed flexed her creative muscles through various artistic hobbies.

In 2011, she turned her talents to furnishing her new home with inexpensive furniture makeovers. Once dedicated to teaching and sharing about scrapbooking, her blog Paper Daisy Design transitioned into home decor and DIY blog. Since then, she moved and fully renovated two more homes selling each for a substantial profit and building a new construction home. All the while, her rebranded blog, Deeply Southern Home, became a resource for DIY’ers and home improvement readers through the popularity of Pinterest.

Leslie began taking on client work after numerous requests for Leslie to share her design talents and extensive renovation knowledge with friends and acquaintances as they remodeled and redecorated their home.

Her business Deeply Southern Home, began evolving from solely a home decor and interiors blog into a full-service decorating and renovation consulting company. Leslie has developed a keen sense of seeing the potential for a room or home and the creative energy to make that vision into a beautiful and functional design. Through the normal transitions of life, she became available to share her passion for transforming homes, room by room, on a more personal level through one-on-one client work.

As her business name suggests, Leslie’s design style is deeply rooted in traditional Southern timeless interiors with a nod to modern touches. Her goal is always to create comfortable, livable rooms with beautiful finishes and details. In her work with clients, she also seeks to reflect their lives and preferences into the design.

In the spring of 2020, Leslie was chosen as a Featured Designer in the coveted online design event, the One Room Challenge. In 2019 Leslie was selected as a Designer for the Birmingham Symphony Designer ShowHouse, transforming a dated powder room with great success. Her interiors have been featured several times on, in Birmingham Home and Garden and the cover story of Hoover’s Magazine.

Working closely with brands like Home Depot, Metrie Interior Finishings, Empire Moulding & Millwork, Ryobi Powertools, Overstock, Kilz and others, Leslie has authentically shared her marketing and social media campaigns with her growing audience.

Leslie holds a BA in Advertising from Louisiana State University and relies on that education to shape her design decisions on color, scale and a discerning eye for details.

    I ran across your marble bathroom from 2015 and love everything about it! We are beginning the process of building a house. Could you please tell me the color of paint on the walls in that bathroom? Looks like a light green. Thank you!
