Hi, I'm Carrie—the founder, writer, stylist, and photographer behind Dream Green DIY, which launched in 2011.


I started this blog during my post-grad years as a nighttime passion project, but within four years, I had quit the traditional office lifestyle to focus 100 percent of my day and nighttime energy on DGD. Here you'll find original DIY tutorials, home décor tips, recipes, the stories behind our mid-century secondhand scores, and a little bit of small business owner advice, too. When I'm not blogging, I'm in the pottery studio making my own handmade ceramics .


My home décor and DIY design work have been featured by Domino, Better Homes & Gardens, Food Magazine, Design*Sponge, HGTV Magazine, Country Living, MyDomaine, Apartment Therapy, The Everygirl, and Glitter Guide, among others. My husband, John, and I currently live in Waynesboro, Virginia, with our rescue dog and two kittens.


You can reach me by email at hello@dreamgreendiy.com.
