ABOUT

Welcome to Jamie Krause Home and Living!

As you may have guessed – I’m Jamie! I’m a
self-taught home decorator and floral designer,
and my blog is based on providing inspiration
for your home and life – while sticking to a
budget you can afford.

I’m a former foster child, so I also like to
discuss topics such as mental health,
breaking down stigmas, women
empowerment, activism, and much more.
Being honest and real, while also keeping
things light-hearted and humorous, has
always been my specialty!

I live in Kelowna, B.C., with my husband,
Tristan, and I was born and raised just
20 minutes away, in scenic Lake Country.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to ‘making things pretty’. As a young child, I spent countless hours decorating and re-arranging my bedroom, and discovering what my personal style is. I always assumed I would grow up to be an interior decorator, but as I mentioned before, time passed, life happened, and I lost sight of what was once so important to me.

I spent many years pining over ‘what could have been’, and finally, in April of 2019, I decided start my blog. It was the best decision I’ve ever made, and now not a day goes by where I’m not planning new ideas to share with you, or providing entertainment on social media.

My goal is to continue building this website into a brand, grow my home decor shop into a real business, and continue sharing the budget-friendly ways to beautify daily life that my community has come to know me for.

My belief is that you don’t have to have it all figured out to be happy where you are right now – all you need is some spare time, and a little imagination. Well, that and my tutorials, of course!

When I’m not blogging, I can usually be found browsing local home stores, laying by the lake, hiking one of our many trails, or raising a glass with friends on a local patio.

I’ve been told my whole life that I have a knack for creating something out of nothing, so above all, I hope you find inspiration here!

xo,

Jamie
