Thank you for stopping by at my blog! My name is Mariella and I live in Fairfield Country, Connecticut. I am passionate about my family, my house and my tech and fitness career! In this blog you will find a little of everything that I do.
This blog started when my husband and I bought The Orchard House. A house that needed a second change. We have come far, restoring each room one project at a time. The journey has been fantastic but is still not over.
The Orchard House is a very traditional cape from New England with a beautiful past and a bright future. It changed my life. My need to transform myself on a budget made me discovery the Do-It-Yourself blog sphere. People sharing their stories and ideas, inspiring one another. I got inspired to release my imagination and creativity.
During this process I found out that some projects are hard to accomplish. They made turn out beautiful, but it takes time a lot of time. Others are easy and quick and it gives you a great sense of satisfaction. I believe that this is the secret of a healthy balance. I want my house to be beautiful, comfortable and above all practical. And hey! Guess what?! It doesn’t need to really be an expensive process, or time consuming… all you need to do is figure it out what you want and how much time and effort you want to spend on it to be able to feel satisfied.

Our home is a reflection of my family and how we want to live our lives…
