Welcome to The Bedford Stone! I’m honored to have you as a part of the simple living community.
At The Bedford Stone, we believe that life doesn’t have to be complicated and everything from you home to your food can be simple, intentional and worthwhile.
My mission is to show the world how to uncomplicate and declutter every part of life in order to open up to new possibilities and experiences. Living simply isn’t about being a minimalist (unless that’s your thing); it’s about curating a life that makes you happy and fulfilled, without putting value on stuff.
If this is your first time here, welcome! I’ve created this page to help you get started with creating a simple, happy home, life and everything in between.
Step One: Get to know me.
Hi, I’m Kelly! My husband and I recently moved back home to Kentucky and bought the cutest little Bedford stone home (hence the name). We’ve dreamed of owning a home for so long, that as I started bringing our belongings in and decorating, I realized I want every inch of our small space to be simple and intentional, which is why I started this blog: to chronicle my simple life journey and help others along the way. We are having a blast fixing up our home and I am excited to share it all with you! Take a look at my Home Tour page to get a detailed look of our little Bedford Stone and our progress with fixing it up.
I’m a writer by trade, but I also love interior design, cooking, DIY projects and organization. This site is a way to combine all those loves into one space, while also helping people shed some of that extra burden that a complicated space puts on your life.
Step two: Join the Simple Living Community
I update The Bedford Stone frequently and the best way to stay in-the-know on all things simple living is to subscribe to my newsletter. I only send updates once a week (because flooding your inbox is NOT simple) and I’ll never share your email address with anyone else.
When you sign up, you’ll also receive a free copy of my ebook, Creating Your Happy Place: 9 Ways to Design Your Happiest Home.
I also LOVE Pinterest. The visuals and inspiration I find on there make me swoon! I have boards dedicated to simple design, living, food and so much more. Hop on over and check it out and be sure to follow to see tons of inspiration for your simple life.
If you’d like to see how I live my everyday simple life, check me out on Instagram. I’ll share everything from projects I’m working on to fun adventures with my hubby and pup.
Step three: Explore!
