Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m Denise Sabia, DIYer, house flipper and dreamer behind The Painted Home.
My style is a bit “rustic chic.” Elements of texture and age mixed with luxury and comfort is what I strive for. I’m a single mom of three kids living in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. I have created a warm and comfortable home for my kids through creative financing, yard sales and good old trash picking!
How would you describe your design style?
My style is a little bit country and a whole lot’a comfort. Atmosphere is the number one thing I concentrate on when pulling a room together.
Where do you find most of your inspiration?
Hmm…I love a challenge. So, I find myself finding really odd pieces, and then through determination, I find a realistic use for it.
Tell us about a recent project you’re proud of.
What I’m most proud of is the home we currently live in. After separating from my ex-husband, my kids and I were desperate for a place to live in our community. Through an amazing village of friends and family we have created a beautiful atmosphere to continue our lives. Our home reflects us perfectly, although tiny, it’s comfortable and stylish.
