Hey y’all! Thanks for stopping by my new blog! My name is Shelby and I am the owner of Nesting on Oleander! I live in Fort Worth, Texas with my husband of two wonderful years. Last May, we added to our little family and adopted a goldendoodle, who we named Spree. I have to confess….I’m one of those obsessive dog moms, but I’ll try to refrain from flooding you with posts about her. If you’re a dog lover go follow her on Instagram @spreedoodle. We just can’t keep her off Instagram!
During our first year of marriage, we were living in a two-bedroom apartment in downtown. Although, we loved the pool, gym, free breakfasts and community events, we were definitely ready for a place to call our own. Last April, we took the leap and bought our first house! Off a cute little street full of restaurants and shops, we found a townhouse just a short five minutes from downtown . We absolutely love our neighborhood.
Since this is a home blog, you probably want to know a little bit about my style right? I have a mix of styles, so I’m not sure what to call mine. We have a 10 year old contemporary-modern townhouse with concrete floors and industrial railings. I love modern farmhouse, industrial, rustic, and contemporary designs, so you will see a mix of all that in my house. One of my biggest challenges when we moved in was trying to make this modern townhouse my style. I am a firm believer that you should decorate to match your personality and style and I think we’ve accomplished that well!
So as we continue to “nest”, I hope to share my process for finding our style, fun DIY projects, entertaining ideas, and more in hopes that you will be inspired to make your nest your own. Since I cook and bake a decent amount, I may even throw in some of my favorite recipes too.
I’m always open to topic suggestions and am here to answer any questions you may have. Comment below to let me know what you want to see and read!
