The Design Twins
Welcome!! We are so happy you are here. Can you feel the virtual hug?
We’re Jodie & Julie, identical twin sisters. We started on Instagram in 2014 hoping to find inspiration and create a bright spot in our day. That’s where we found our voice, met our followers (who we always refer to as our FRIENDS) …but we knew we had more to share!
Creating our blog in 2016 fulfilled our life-long dream of building a business together. It brings us joy every day to share this dream with you!
This blog, however, is more about YOU than it is about us! We hope that visiting us here will enrich your life! We want you to come here to find joy, inspiration and above all, to feel like part of the journey.
Our goal is to share home decor tips that ANYONE can do….
We share DIY projects that don’t require special skills…
And we are passionate about sharing budget-friendly decorating hacks that EVERYONE can afford.
You Are Invited
Come along on the journey with us, trying new things, succeeding at some, failing at others, and learning and growing together with every step. With God as our guide we’re leaving fear behind us and tackle life’s challenges one step at a time.
We are here to empower you, encourage you and reassure you that if we can do it, so can you! Remember, you’re not alone. We’ll travel this journey together. Follow along and we’ll share what NOT to do, because we’ve made that mistake already.
We want to welcome you into our homes and into our LIVES. It’s about to get real.
Let’s do this!
xo Jodie & Julie
- Jodie’s the older “bossy” twin (Julie wrote that!)
- Julie’s the younger “wild” twin (Whatever!!)
- We play classical violin…still
- We love pizza, a LOT
- We grew up as “The Brady Bunch”—Jodie was Marsha and Julie was Jan, no judgment
- Exercise makes us happy (Luckily)
- French is our “secret language”
- We are Gemini’s so our passions are always changing
Our favorite movie is “Moulin Rouge” and the scene when Ewan McGregor composes and sings “Your Song” to Nicole Kidman…. Our hearts melt every time!
