2. When did you start blogging? What drove you in the direction home design?: i started blogging in april, 2009 (almost one year!) and plan to continue for many years to come.  i like to write about home design, because i feel like a home is such a special place.  it’s a unique reflection of who you are and it’s where you can really get creative.  at going home to roost, we’re all about roosting, which means making your home a place where you can do all things that you enjoy most.  along with home design, you can find me writing about handmade artists, gardening, recipes, diy and craft projects and homesteading.

Where do you go to for inspiration?: lots of places!  off line i always head outdoors and walk around the yard, go for a hike or head out on a run.  i live in the beautiful mountains of north carolina and nature and beauty surround me, always filling me with inspiration!  i also find lots of inspiration by taking photographs or reading a good book in the sunshine.

online i love finding and learning about new artists and often visit my favorite blogs for inspiration.

  1. Oh my gosh! This interview is a blast. In fact, I have been digging through the archives to see all of the other interviews and things you’ve done, Lana. What a beautiful blog and home. My house is a 450 square foot apartment in Berlin. We love it, but it certainly challenges what we can do. For starters, the kitchen is 36 square feet! Whew. Love the answer to #5.
