Sharing homeowners’ stories is one of our very favorite things at Wayne Homes. Why? Because they tell the story of how a home lives.
And, when we’re very lucky, some of our homeowners post regularly on social media and share their beautiful homes regularly. Cathy and Duane are some of those homeowners.
Cathy and Duane built their McAllister Family in 2018 with our Delaware office and now Cathy shares on Instagram how she styles her home. She also decorates others’ homes with her business HomeStyles. We asked Cathy to share a little about their home:
How would you describe your decorating/home style and why?
I have different styles for the seasons; Spring & Summer – coastal. Fall & Winter – Modern farmhouse.
Material/fabric – cotton and linens, some burlap. Soft muted creams, taupes, and whites.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Depending on seasons, Target-Studio McGee and Hearth & Hand. Pottery Barn, Joanna Gaines, and my own inspiration.
What is your favorite room in your home and why?
I love the open living room and kitchen. It gets the most visibility and use, of course.
What is your favorite customization in your home and why?
My favorite customizations are that our countertop is different heights and our beam.
What advice would you give to those decorating their new home?
Play around and take pictures. I play with decor then take a picture to see what I would change.
Cathy often shares design inspiration and tips on her Instagram account. Here are some of our favorite posts:
- Great room with great style: Cathy shows off her great room and into the kitchen, highlighting the beam that she loves.
- An eat ledge brings everyone together: We get to see Cathy’s beloved countertop with the raised eat ledge.
- Favorite decor: Cathy shares her kitchen decor with items from her favorite brands, showcasing the coastal and farmhouse styles she likes.
- A seat at the table: Cathy’s formal dining room is so inviting.
- Holiday decor: Seasonal decor is simple, warm, and festive at Cathy and Duane’s home.
- Furry friends: Cathy’s dog Maggie is featured in many of her posts, and is her unofficial mascot.
- Wake up with Cathy: She often shares her morning cup of joe with her styled home in the background, setting the mood for the day.
