About Me

Hey there! Welcome!

I’m Danae – the voice behind the blog – The Homebody House. For nearly a decade of my adult life, I lived in almost as many apartments as there are years in a decade and really struggled to love living in a place that I didn’t own.

Fast forward to 2015 when I started this blog while living in – you guessed it – another apartment with my then boyfriend Sikmon. I finally stopped wishing for something I didn’t have and started focusing on ways to make our rentals feel as much like ours as they possibly could be – and so the blog was born!

In 2016 we finally did it! We purchased our very first home together (a 1970’s condo that was 8 shades of beige) and in 2017 we had a baby!

When we aren’t working full time, you can probably find us right here renovating and de-beiging this place on the weekends. You can also find us at Home Depot or Lowes. We’re there a lot too.

We’re just a couple of hardcore homebodies now with a baby in tow doing what we love and documenting it all here.
