About

Hi there! I'm glad you found your way to Project House To Home.  I'm Jessica and I have a passion for remodeling and redecorating homes and turning the ugly and old into something beautiful again.                                                                                                                                    
I believe that with a little creativity, hard work, TIME (and yes, money) that not-so-perfect house can turn into a beautiful place to call home. 



My background and education are in financial planning and I spend 3 days a week working as a financial advisor.  I discovered my passion for design and decorating back in 2011 when I spent 2 years remodeling my first home - a 1970s Colonial located on the North Shore of MA.  I completed a certificate program in Interior Decorating and Staging and started an e-design business creating customized moodboards.  You can read more about that house and my projects on my old blog, Home with Baxter.

Fast forward 7 years and I'm now living on the coast of Southern Maine with my husband, Matt, and working on house #2  - a 1940s Cape Cod with a quirky layout and in need of some updates.

With a part-time day job, an almost 2 year old son, a daughter on the way, and two mischievous pups, there is little time for house projects these days.  If you can find the patience to follow along as we slowly change things around here, I'd love to share our progress with you!
