Let Your Home Be Your Heart

  • What I hope for my readers and for all keepers of the nest, is that they embrace their homes with their heart and all of the passion that it holds. I want them to know that they can decorate on a limited budget by seeing things in new ways; by rescuing the broken and transforming the ugly. I hope that they flaunt their favorite color and decorate their life with it. I hope that their homes feel like one giant hug that welcomes them each and every time they walk through their front door. More than anything I want everyone to have their own home-sweet-home dream come true! xo, Kim

Oh Kim, I love the red table... perfect! Looks like it has always been there. And the slipcovers add so much to the room. You are so good with color. Enjoy!

Ooooo very pretty, Kim! Love it! You're SO lucky to have a sister who can make your slipcovers. In August, I paid Calico Corners an OBSCENE amount of money (almost $3,000!!) to make slipcovers for my living room sofa, loveseat and one wingback chair like yours. Want to re-do the family room furniture sometime soon but I think I need to find somebody more reasonable.

Yes! It IS perfect for your room! Wonderful and cheerful! Love the slip covers your sister made!!!! Very chic! Great arrangement on the mantle, too!



that table fits perfectly! Your living room looks so bright and cozy. I love it!


So beautiful!! Your sister did a beautiful job with them. I love the whole new look. Great job, kim!


You are so lucky to have a talented sis who sews! I love the colors in your living room. I think a little black in a room anchors it...makes all the other colors pop!


The new slipcovers are wonderful, Kim! And that table was made for Daisy Cottage!



I love those slipcovers! The room looks great!


Your living room looks very nice---so bright and cheerful. I love reading your blog daily. Thanks for the inspiration.

C. Stower

Oh my goodness, your slipcovers are darling!!! What a smart (and kind) sister you have, I sew, but I would be scared to attempt something like slipcovers. What a great addition your new RED coffee table is too, it could not be more perfect. Love it all, it looks so good!! Thank you for sharing. Hugs, Cindy

Catherine Holman

Kim, I also have white slip covers that my mother and I made from white mattelasses (spelling?). I love your new black and white covers with the red table! Your sister did a beautiful job!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Love the chairs. Love the table. Love your sister for making the slipcovers for you. Give her a hug and tell her she's so very talented.

The Decorated House

Good Morning Dear Kim (& Jill, too!)
Those are beautiful! No need to tell you how lucky you are to have such a sweet sis who sews extremely well.

What a fun change, and of course, the room looks fabulous!

The red table is definitely Daisy Cottage. Love, love, love the slip covers. Way to go, sis.

Can your sister come up to CT and make me some slipcovers LOL! I love the new look and that table is perfect!


The splipcovers are lovely - and they coordinate so nicely with Maggie's bench! You are indeed fortunate that your sister is such a talented seamstress. Thanks for sharing pictures of your updated living room. The red table looks great with your newly slipcovered chairs.

Diane Duda

They look wonderful, Kim!
Table and chairs both.
I have a wonderful sister too, but she doesn't make slip covers. :(


Vicky G.

Kim, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new slipcovers and the red table. They would be perfect for my small condo in NC, the only trouble is the condo is too small for everything I love. I had done mostly the black and white checks there along with the red, but I am adding the black paisley and polka dots now too. REALLY LOVE IT! Vicky G.


Love the the how you put everything together! What excellent taste you have.......not just the basic ideas but how you tweak it all to be that perfect setting.

Have the Best of Weeks......Rosie


Gorgeous!!! I think these could be used year round.



I live in a non descript house in a non descript neighborhood in South Alabama. Your cottage with the beautiful porch makes me remember going to my grandmothers in North Louisiana with the porch all around and the rough wood dining room table painted a sky blue. Porch sitting with MaMa Thomas and my great grandmother "Granny"


What charming changes for the fall and winter season at Daisy Cottage -- very flirty and fun slipcovers! And you are SO lucky that you have your sister and her incredible talent to call on! I am so envious!! The table is perfect there too!

How ADORABLE!!! I love it!!!!!


The slipcovers are delightful. Lucky you to have such a talented sister!

I also want to tell you how much I enjoy your playlist. Sometimes, I visit Daisy Cottage just to stick the playlist in the tray and listen to it while I go on about my computer chores.


That table is just perfect with the slipcovers.


oh, kim, this looks so great! I never would have thought to do black and white, but it looks so great together with the red! So nice to see other ideas. I have white slipcovers as well, and with all the kids, and the dog, black just might be my next color!
Thanks for the inspiration!


Kim, I love your new slip covers. Your sister is a gem to make them for you and you couldn't have found a more perfect fabric!! I also love your new table. I have been looking for one similar only in oak! You have given me hope! I can't get over the little black pillow with white around the edges shaped like a heart!. Is that a find or did someone make that! It is lovely.

Kathleen Grace

Wow, I just love those slipcovers, they look so cozy for winter and yet still very crisp and fun! The red table IS perfect too! How pretty!

Rose from Classic Charm

Kim - Just DARLING! I love the new slipcovers and adore your new red table! What a lovely update. Thanks for sharing. Gosh I need to take sewing lessons LOL!

Fantastic! They couldnt look any better!


Just love the new slipcovers. I love the combination of the print and the polka dots. They look gorgeous with the new red table. Just a perfect fit. I love to see what new creative things you are doing with your house. Thanks for being such an inspiration.

STUNNING! Howdy girl! ;) xo


Hi Kim,

Those slip covers are adorable and that table is causing me to have paint-mine-red urges! That table is the same style as my dining room table and boy would it look pretty in red :)


Amanda (aka Cottage Contessa)

The chairs, the table, the pillows.......the whole room is just gorgeous! Makes me wish it was my house! lol You've got such great style.

I just love you and your blog and the music and everything. I feel like you are some one I know and am actually connected to. Is this crazy? You seem like this "favorite aunt" type of person that I check in on and love to "visit" with. Love the black slipcovers. Great for the cooler seasons. LOVE the red table. Love the boldness of your style. Just love you!



Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Love the black and white slip covers and the red table adds just the right touch! Your sister certainly has a talent! I have two wing back chairs right now that need a change... I do not have your sister's talent. She is blessed with a great talent!


Kim: I love how it all goes together...the fabric is darling and the table is perfect. You've put it altogether so nicely...quite handsome! Are you for hire?

Kristal Mulder

I LOVE your slipcovers Kim!!! What a lovely change to your LR! And the table is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! Boy I wish I lived closer! :)

Elaine L.

I LOVE the slipcovers and red table. Seeing your slipcovers makes me want new ones.

I, also, had my slipcovers made so that they don't drag on the floor, that way they don't collect dog hair.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love your color combinations.



Oh I how I do love red!


heavens to betsy! I love it so much I do not know what to do except ask you if I can move in? think that would be ok? ;)
you must be tickled waking up in the morning and seeing such a PERFECT home.


I love your new slipcovers and the new table, Kim! I love that you are brave with your decor--it's really great...and very YOU.


These are so great! It makes me want to learn to sew slipcovers!!! And the red table is perfect. When I look at your home, it looks like "home" to I just belong THERE! I seriously think you should do a cottage decorating book. Seriously!


Beautiful slipcovers :)

Miss Janice

I love the whole look, it's great!

melissa @ the inspired room

Ah, how lucky of you to have a sister to make you slipcovers! I don't make them and don't have anyone to make them for me! So, I'm outta luck when I want a new look! Poor me, lucky you!



I don't think there is anything better than wing chairs, unless it is black & white slipcovered wing chairs with red accents. Love it all.


Too gorgeous! Love the slipcovers and that red table... So pretty!


wow! i know mine needs a change too!


Wow!!Your blog is fantastic!!

What is the red thing on the right side of the mantle? Love the arrangement!



The slipcovers are wonderful! What fantastic fabric. And they look great with the new red table.


Kim, I love the new slipcovers! The little skirts are just adorable on them. How lucky you are to have such a talented sister.

Great new table too, perfect for your lovely home.



How cute! Isn't great to have family to help see your creative vision through? I am so jealous of the table! I want one in blue or green!

Your hospitality and sweet spirit make the home even more beautiful! Thanks for reminding me that one day I too will have my "dream come true!" ~ Ida - MOPS Member

Thank You Jane!

  • "I just discovered your blog and am blown away with the comfortable, almost nostalgic feel of it...almost like finding a long-lost friend after many years apart...somehow familiar, but all so exciting and new." ~ Jane

Thank You Dena!

  • "Kim, I love your blog. I so appreciate you sharing every day. I miss you when you're gone. Losing my dear sweet baby boy in Iraq has made me treasure life and those so dear to me. Reading your blog is such therapy for me. You have made me treasure the finer things in life that I use to overlook. Birds singing, flowers blooming, my home and all of the treasures within it. I'm not sure that I ever looked at a teacup or saucer and saw such detail and beauty in it." ~ Dena

Thank You Grace!

  • "I would like to let you know what a joy it is to wake up each morning and read your delightful blog. I always feel as if you are speaking directly to me. Since I was diagnosed with an immune disease a year ago I wanted only to read positive and very inspiring blogs and your blog was the first I found. I think maybe the good Lord meant for me to find your blog and since then it has been nothing but smiles all around. I have tried very hard to stay positive about this disease and very up beat. I know that there is no cure and I have accepted this, but reading things with a positive message and filled with so much love helps. This is where you come in and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and to let you know how very much you and Miss Maggie are loved." ~ Grace

Thank You Francesca!

Thank You Kathy!

  • "I visited my friends with their tasteful beige homes and sometimes questioned if there was anyone else in this world who loved the things I did. Then I found Daisy Cottage and a whole community of other women who shop the side of the road, paint their furniture fun colors, and aren't afraid to fill their homes with touches of whimsy and fun. What a relief! We aren't alone! I'm not alone. Thanks for all your inspiration and for confidently sharing your home and the idea that we can have fun with our decorating. I never get tired of visiting here Kim." ~ Kathy

Thank You Lenna!

  • "My eyes have been opened to a world I never knew existed. Such vibrant creativity, such caring community: it literally takes my breath away. After so much loneliness and isolation it is overwhelming to me that such a world even exists. In time I hope to be able to fill my garden of life with lovely, loving friends instead of the weeds of loneliness. Until that time lace tablecloths will come out of storage, music and lovely scents will fill the air of this home. And I shall visit the Daisy Cottage when I feel despair raise its dark, obscuring head, for I know from experience, that it is ever lurking behind that next bout of pain and weakness. Your kind and generous response has strengthened my resolve, you have helped me more than you will ever know, my new-found friend." ~ Lenna

Thank You Lisa!

  • "Here's how I can best describe into words how your blog made me feel. You know when you wake up in the morning and there's an early morning thunderstorm and every room in your house is as dark as night? Then, the rain and thunder stop and the sun comes shining through all the windows and you just know it's going to be a beautiful, sunshine day? Well, that's how finding Dear Daisy Cottage made me feel. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Kim. You blessed my day and may God do the same for you." ~ Lisa B.

Thank You Anne!

  • "Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have been "lurking" but had to share with you how much you have helped me embrace the fun of decorating. I came to your blog looking for pictures to inspire me as I redecorate my house with cottage style. Today I was so tangled up in doing it "right" that it was really depressing me. I visited your blog again for some fresh ideas and came away realizing that there is no "right." Just me being me and enjoying my home! I am laying here in bed with tears in my eyes - tears of happiness that it is okay to be me and let that shine through in my house and what I wear and what I make with my hands. You are God's gift to me today and I thank Him and you." ~ Anne
