Hi! I’m Jenna Shaughnessy, the voice behind Jenna Kate at Home, the blog that shares inspired home decor ideas, DIY projects and recipes to help make your house feel more like a home.

In addition to my blog, I run a successful e-design business. I’ve helped hundreds of readers just like you design a house they love coming home to!

I hold a bachelor in Business Information Systems and two Master’s Degrees – one in Business Information Systems and the other an MEd in Elementary Education. I’ve used both these degrees to help further my business since marry two of my passions: technology and education!

We currently own a 1960’s Colonial in the Greater Boston Area. This blog is dedicated to my adventures at remodeling and redecorating our house, one project at a time! We love to DIY when we can, but we also know our limitations and when it’s a better idea to hire out the work.

As a kid, I spent my play time constantly decorating my Barbie’s dollhouse and ripping pages out of magazines for my “dream home”.  I guess the home design bug has always been part of me! I’m also obsessed with fashion and beauty, and I love to cook!  My home is by no means perfect, but it’s improving one project at a time.

I truly believe that everyone can have a beautiful home, no matter what your budget is! I have poured every last piece of advice into my popular ebook, Home in Progress. If you want a home that is gorgeous but you don’t have a ton of money or just don’t even know where to start, this book is for you!

I have received countless home design features from The Huffington Post, House Beautiful, Country Sampler, HGTV Online, Better Homes and Gardens, BuzzFeed and Apartment Therapy. I’ve even been quoted in The New York Times.

Many of my recipes have also been featured by MSN, Oprah Magazine and more!

Join me in my journey of creating a home to love through simple DIY projects, inspired home decor and delicious food!
