Meet the mother/daughter duo...
Jen Houghton, Home Stylist....
Jen currently lives in Mound, MN with her husband, three small children, and a crazy golden doodle puppy! They purchased a SUPER ugly lake home about 8 years ago and completely renovated it from the inside out. Coming from a brand-new condo in downtown Minneapolis, this was quite the lifestyle change.
Jen’s had an eye for design her entire life. At the age of 8 she wanted a very simple black and white bedroom without much clutter and her simple/timeless style has stuck with her ever since. For years, friends and family had been telling Jen to get into design and decorating, or for her and her husband to go into the house flipping business after seeing their home completed.
It finally began when a good friend, Julie, asked Jen to decorate her entire home. Jen had an absolute blast picking out everything from paint colors, light fixtures, furniture, wall décor, etc…. Once completed, Julie had a neighborhood gathering and three of her neighbors wanted to hire Jen to decorate/design their homes.
Jen also has experience with home renovations and staging consultations. Whether the client is staging their home to sell or just staging it to live – Jen’s passion is to make a house feel like a HOME!
