Decorating the Hodge home can be summed up with one word…FUN! Taree Hodge, wife and mother of 4, was up for anything. It’s always nice to work with people that trust the process and believe in your craft. Taree was such a delight and was always agreeable and upbeat about all aspects of the journey.
First came the ultimate remodel. I had Taree select some inspiration pictures from Houzz.com of kitchens and rooms that she was drawn to. I helped her put those dream images to real life by selecting painted/glazed cabinets, cambria countertops, new appliances and a travertine backsplash to add warmth and texture. Also added a pantry/buffet in the nook for more usable cabinet space that also served as a built-in buffet for entertainment. Vinyl plank floors were the perfect choice to secure that welcoming touch of wood but intense durability. A variety of muddy teal paints were bounced throughout the spaces to bring cohesiveness to all of these open spaces. Medium oak vinyl plank “wood looking” floors were selected to tie in the décor that was soon to be.
I did an inspiration palette and let Amanda run wild with her creativity.

At first glance, it’s clear that the Hodge family loves hunting, country living, and family. Taree wanted to make sure that her house wasn’t stuffy but rather welcoming to the grandkids and extended family. She wanted a space that was cozy, soft, and rustic. All the main living spaces were getting a facelift and our pallet was light blues, soft creams, and neutral browns. We started with an amazing rug found at Wayfair that really brought the living room together and set the tone for the whole house. The “Man Cave”, complete with deer heads and other , was brought together with a bold rug and a lodge style window treatment. The rich colors and rustic elements, like antler lamps and tree branch candles, really gave this room a balance of masculinity and style.
When you get to know Taree, you really can’t help but like her. She is sweet and kind; someone we truly wanted to bless. We were thrilled she walked in to see her new home and was speechless. It was such a great privilege to serve Taree and her family in this way. It never gets old helping people to make their house, their home!
