Toddler Fun

image1Do you have a climber in your house? We are in full blown 2 year old fun in our house!  He loves to climb on everything!  Ottomans are his favorites. These blue striped Donny Osmond Home Upholstered Cubes had my name on it!  I seriously love ottomans and how they fill a space with design and function. They make great extra seating for watching TV or throwing a fun party.  Mr. Ryder would sure have to agree!!  I love how you can actually stack them on top of each other too.  These are just too cute with the blue stripes and could go with any room design.

The Transformation Continues!

20150428_133337

Last month I showed you how Capital Lighting is transforming our home with their incredible light fixtures.

Look at the newest addition!   Love these Donny Osmond Home Pendants!  They make such a difference in the kitchen.  A beautiful statement that is easy to do and truly gives you a fun change in any room.  Lighting is one of the best ways to update your home and give any room a fresh new look.  It has always been one of my favorite categories in home design. Easy to install without too much effort or repair and when you have an in-house electrician it makes it even better!!!  Happens to be one of Donny’s hobbies that I get to benefit from! Try a little change in your home by adding some great new light fixtures from our friends at Capital lighting. You will love it!

Beautiful New Lighting

I love how a simple change can make such a huge difference in a home, like my new Donny Osmond Home Eastman Light Pendant from Capital Lighting! I’m thrilled to have them as a partner with us.  I love all the amazing lighting they have designed for Donny Osmond Home and they are truly such a joy to work with.  Wait until you see the other lights Donny installed in the next blog.  They are such a wonderful addition to our home, and the electrician wasn’t too bad either!

I’m in Love with Flowers.

image005

I have a passion for flowers and that’s why I love this floral arrangement from one of our Donny Osmond Home licensees, Bougainvillea. I keep it in my living room right off the front entry so when guests walk in, the first thing they see is this beautiful arrangement.

It’s refreshing to have flowers in our home that are real, yet preserved. Flowers can bring life to any room and I’ve always loved decorating with them. These arrangements can make your home come alive with the freshness of flowers that you don’t have to replace every week. That makes it economical as well.

Meet Jessi Osmond.

JessiA native of Southern California, the sunshine has always meant home to me. And with a little help from my friend SPF 45, this ginger can’t get enough of it ;). Growing up the youngest of 8 kids, I managed to have my own room by the time I was 7 that my mother let me decorate. With the help of my little friend Molly, my walls got painted, my furniture got rearranged and we adorned the space with butcher paper-faux wallpaper trim over and over. I am awed at the patience of my mother who stood by with little intervention and let me express myself.

This love of making a space my own has always uplifted my spirits. I’m sure it caught my husband off guard the first few times he came  home to what he might have thought was a visit from a poltergeist. With furniture rearranged and decor re-hung around the room, he didn’t know what he was in for. But now he’s grown accustomed to the freshening-up of the space every now and then, adding a dab of color here, or a splash of texture there, breathing new life into our newlywed thrift finds and hand-me-downs. He also has the patience like my mother, and knows I’m in a state of zen when I open a new can of paint or fill a new vase with something fresh from the yard.

Almost five years ago, the fate in my stars aligned when I met Don, the oldest of Donny and Debbie’s brood.  I knew I had met my match when he brought me flowers and danced with me under the night sky in a Park City parking lot. Today, with our little Truman in tow, we still take the opportunity to dance in the moonlight whenever we can; although, most of the time it’s in the kitchen with dishes piled high and Tru at our feet, and we like it just the same.

The home has always been my sanctuary; where I refuel.  A place I reconnect with the people that matter most in my world; a place where I find myself.

My personal style is full of juxtaposition, romanticism meets industrial; I love soft, velvety colors and a rustic wooden table; blends of raw textures and polished mantles; my grandmother’s dark tufted chairs, mix-matched tea-cups and our cream clean-lined sofa;  simple, white-washed  wainscoting and eclectic elements that bring together history and culture.  I like our space to reflect where we’ve been and where our dreams may take us. I’m also a sucker for saving a buck. I love the challenge of seeing potential in something (or someone) that others have overlooked. Some of my greatest gems have come from unexpected places.

And the greatest gem of all?  My little Truman and his big. hazel. eyes.  I get to experience the world like a child through those saucers, and see all of its magic and beauty.  My little family of three inspires me in new ways each and every day.

Meet Melisa Osmond.

Hi!! My name is Melisa. Im Donny and Debbie’s daughter in law. I’m married to Jeremy and we have 3 beautiful children.  We proudly made Donny and Debbie grandparents with their first grandchild Dylan who is now nine.  The first princess granddaughter, our Emy who is six, and our sweet baby Ryder (1).  I grew up on the beach on the Panhandle of Florida. Jeremy and I have been married for almost 12 years this November. We met and fell in love while I was working for Sony Pictures Studios on the Donny and Marie Talk show in 2000. It’s my favorite story to tell, and I still get giddy and butterfly’s when I get to share the how we met story. I continued to work in television on different shows and studios. After we were married, we moved from LA to Utah for Jeremy to continue his education at the University of Utah. He is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and is a Director of Rehab at an Acute Rehab Hospital. We recently designed and built our home in Utah. We have a waterfront and mountain view property. It’s perfect for us because the waterfront views of the Lake remind me of home and it’s right on the benches of the mountains for Jeremy.
We spent last year designing and picking out every piece of our house. My style is very traditional, a little modern, and eclectic. I love white, light, bright, fresh and new. When designing our home I had a beach house style in mind. I love home design and never miss a model home tour or Parade of homes.
Our kids keep us very busy between, 3rd grade,1st grade, teething, nap time, football, gymnastics, cub Scouts, piano, and being taxi mom, I try to work on decorating our new home. I’m a busy mama always on the go!!
I’m excited to share with you little glimpses of decorating ideas with the Donny Osmond Home line. It is amazing and I love it all and I know you will too. Enjoy and it’s a pleasure to share with you all the fun pieces of the home line!!

Meet Shelby Osmond.

_MG_2819-2Hello! I’m Shelby and I am married to the love of my life; Donny and Debbie’s third son, Brandon. We have two sweet little boys, Daxton and Tayte and we are expecting another baby really soon! I thought it would be fun to do a top 5 about myself to give more background about me.

1. I love my family: my husband and my boys… If I could stop there I would. But really they fill my soul with almost everything that it needs.

2. One of the things I love in our home is having a unique, raw look. I love to have that clean, crisp white look but when you add some raw wood and some plants its adds a whole new dimension for me.

3. Recently I’ve really loved learning about health. I’m learning to love to cook healthy meals and figure out what works for our family.

4. Telling a story through photography is a big passion for me. I recently have dabbled into videography and now I am gaining an even bigger passion for all things photography/vidoegraphy related.

5. And fun fact about us, we aren’t finding out the gender of our baby and I couldn’t be more excited for the moment that we get to find out!

Hi, this is Debbie. I’m married to this guy named Donny. You may have heard of him.

I was a cheerleader at Provo High when I was 15 years old and that’s how we met. We are coming up on 37 years of marriage!  It’s so hard to believe it’s been that many years. What a wonderful journey it has been for our family and also one filled with a bit of craziness in the world of show business.  That’s why I’ve always tried to make our home a place of refuge and peace. I love a home that’s simple and inviting. I’ve always wanted it to be a place for our children to bring their friends and for our grandchildren to come and have fun.

Interior design has been a passion of mine ever since I was in college. Donny Osmond Home gives me the chance to fulfill that dream and have the opportunity to share it with you.

On this blog page, you get to take a little peek into how we use our products to make our house a home. You’ll also get a chance to see how my sweet daughter’s-in-law use the products in their homes. We all are looking forward to continue posting pictures every month of some of our favorite items. We hope you enjoy these pictures but above all, we hope you enjoy making your house a home with Donny Osmond Home.
