About Home Made Lovely

Since 2010, Home Made Lovely has been dedicated to teaching moms how to create a more stylish and organized home they love.

Home Made Lovely is here to help you fall in love with your home.

We understand that not all of us live in our dream home, but we’re here to help make the home you have into one you adore.

From learning to embrace an attitude of gratitude no matter where you live, to decluttering and organizing all your spaces, and decorating with your own unique touches, the tips, how-to’s, and guides throughout this site will help you to create a more beautiful and functional home that you’ll love to live in. 

The team here at HomeMadeLovely.com are authors, DIYers, content creators, and interior decorating and organizing experts. Collectively, we have decades of experience in home renovations, decorating on a budget, organizing big and small spaces and home makeovers. 

Our aim with Home Made Lovely is to be your trusty friend in your home journey and your go-to place for inspiration, encouragement and help when you need it most. 

Happy homemaking,

Shannon Acheson – Founder, Main Content Creator

I’m Shannon Acheson, author, entrepreneur, content creator, interior decorating expert, and the creative force behind Home Made Lovely.

I created Home Made Lovely in 2010 (then called AKA Design) to share my husband’s and my  DIY and decorating adventures with others online. That first house improved, we sold it and bought another. And then we repeated the process. Along the way, my love of great design and organization grew. 

At Home Made Lovely, I blend my creative side and my analytical side to create stylish and functional spaces that are both inviting and beautiful. This website, like its projects, featured rooms and videos, evolves as I do. Because when I’m not designing or decluttering, I’m either writing about it or dreaming about it.

Dean Acheson – Co-Founder, Handyman and Guy with All the Tools

While he works in a sheet metal shop by day, Dean is utterly invaluable to Home Made Lovely the rest of the time. His DIY project skills have been a major piece of Home Made Lovely’s success and heavily contributed to several of our projects being featured in magazines and on TV. He is a master of making Shannon’s visions come to life and is way better at “measuring twice and cutting once” than she is! 

Megan Acheson – Assistant Extraordinaire

Megan is Shannon’s on-location assistant and her flexibility and willingness to do whatever Shannon needs is beyond compare. On any given day, she can be responsible for video editing, social media, proofreading, organizing, data entry and even shooting photos and video for projects. She is very much appreciated and totally deserves a raise!

Work With Us

At Home Made Lovely we recognize that companies need engaged audiences to share their brand with – while consumers want know how and why a brand’s product or service can help them.

We bring the two together – fabulous brands and engaged consumers – through beautiful photography and a conversational writing style that feels a lot like we’re just chatting with our readers over coffee.
