Oh, hey! I’m Debby. I’ve been interested in decorating interiors since I DIY’d my first Barbie house.
Growing up, my parents were into DIY (with a macrame business on the side) so our home was often in the middle of revision, and that’s when I got the make-your-home-your-own bug.
After a several years of marketing and English and journalism teaching, I married my hubby in 2005 and we had two boys and were enjoying life in SoCal. I started the blogging (formerly Time to DIY) and SAHM life after we moved to Denver in 2012, and had a baby girl.
Blogging was a creative outlet, something I made time for (hence Time to DIY) so I didn’t lose myself in motherhood. But during that time our family was hit with some health issues (miscarriage, autoimmune disease, and cancer) so projects and blogging often took a back seat for months.
But God always has a purpose and uses challenges for good. It was through that journey that our eyes were opened to how food and toxins affect our health, which forever changed us.
Lifestyle changes aren’t always easy, and for us it was a slow, step-by-step process, but after seeing the the positive changes of more natural living (like actually feeling better!), we will never go back.
In 2015, we moved back home to Southern California, bought a new house, and have been making it our own, one project at a time, ever since.
In 2018, I changed the blog name to Pretty Healthy House to integrate both design and natural living.
If I’m not designing something or reading about healthy stuff, I’m likely drinking tea or wine (I know, that’s why I chose ‘pretty healthy house’), hanging out with my family, painting, taking pictures, somewhere on or near the water, or at church.
Whether you’re looking for some room design and decor inspiration, or some simple ways to make your house pretty healthy, you’re in the right place! Take a look around and let me know what you think. 🙂
