Hello and welcome to Sanctuary! 🙂
I’m Michelle Wood and as a professional photographer, graphic designer, and interior stylist, my passion in life is finding the beauty in everyday things and settings.
I get really lit up teaching others how to create serene, yet beautiful statement-making, spaces that have high-end touches using “real people” budgets. My absolute favorite part is helping someone figure out what their actual decorating style is. Spoiler alert: it’s usually a combo of multiple styles!
I’m a creative-brained homebody so I’m always knee-deep in some kind of home project which, I ultimately discovered, is my way of relaxing. I really enjoy sharing decorating tips I’ve learned along the way with others and I want to help inspire YOU to create your own simple, serene spaces.
If you’re on the ‘Gram, make sure to follow my MySanctuaryStyle Instagram feed to keep up on the latest posts.
Also, make sure to follow my Pinterest to see what kind of interior design inspiration gets me all hot and bothered on a daily basis.
And while you’re there, check out my “Our Future English Cottage” Pinterest board in the event we end up moving in the future. You never know where life’s journey will take you so I always like to be prepared design-wise. 😁
Side note: compare that Pinterest board to my “Our Modern Farmhouse” board, you’ll see how my design style has already evolved into my current design style and that’s how it should be. We evolve as people due to life experiences, so why shouldn’t our design tastes evolve as well? That’s the most fun part of decorating – trying out all kinds of new things!
And finally, make sure to follow my blog with Bloglovin!
Want to know the design sources of items in photos from my modern farmhouse? Just click on “Shop My Farmhouse” (accessible in 3 areas of this site: top menu, left small box on home page under the top large image, and on the right sidebar), and you can choose the room(s) you want to source.
I want you to know that I’m always accessible if you have any decorating questions or ideas for articles or DIY projects, so please feel free to Contact Me anytime. I actually DO respond, typically within 24 hours. I’m here to share my decorating and design knowledge with you and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
On this blog, I share home styling inspiration, DIY & craft projects, my decorating obsessions, gluten-free/allergy-free recipes (I have Celiac Disease & food allergies so the restaurant scene is not for me!), and other interior styling knowledge nuggets.
So pour yourself a nice glass of wine, snuggle up on the sofa, and get inspired! ❤︎
