Happy New Year

Popping in to wish you all a Happy New Year and DECADE. Wow I just can’t believe it is really 2020! The last decade has been full of a lot of ups and downs for our family and I am grateful for all of you here and IRL that have followed along with our story, this blog and Holly Mathis Interiors.

So a few exciting things to share…

First off, a new website will be launching here sometime soon, likely before the end of January. The new site will continue to have a blog space where I will periodically check in like I am now; But more importantly it will have an updated portfolio FINALLY and more! Y’all I have blessed with so many wonderful clients and projects in the last few years and there are so many photos and much inspiration coming!

Recent projects in progress

The new site will also have more digital resources dropping throughout the coming year! Quick and easy digital downloads, online classes, video and more! I know we are all so bombarded with beautiful content and it can be overwhelming. You can go anywhere to get your inspiration and ideas but for those of you who want to see MY recommendations and what excites and inspires me it will be here and more importantly I will be here, Through better e-consults/home coaching, classes, downloads and new ways to work together that WILL work even better for you to get YOU where you want to be with your home in the coming year and decade.

Because don’t we need homes we love that comfort and shelter us more than ever from this crazy world?! Not just stuff and unattainable perfection but conversation and ideas about creating real homes for our families and lives. That is what I want to bring you in the next decade. Beauty + Inspiration with Authenticity.

I also celebrate a major anniversary this year, 15 years in this business! It is hard to believe this all began when my big teenager was just a newborn. How many of you remember this article that started it all. Much of the early part of my business and the next decade included e-consultations as we called them back in the day before instagram, even Pinterest and other apps. My online business grew even faster than my local business early on and eventually it became very overwhelming and I backed off accepting that type of consulting. And then my local work soared and now it has maxed me out somewhat. But I love them both. And I want to do to them both but better with more intention. I have just had crazy growth and I am grateful, it has been a wild ride! After nearly FIFTEEN years of this back of forth balancing both online and local clients (and raising kids, flipping houses, surviving divorce and hard transitions) I am ready to hone in on new services. I have spent time being mentored, coached, thinking, praying, and figuring out what mix of business works for our family and my clients moving forward. I will be talking more to you about this coming weeks both here and in your mailbox if you subscribe. It’s mind boggling how we can communicate and learn and create in 2020 compared to even 2012.

So I am rebooting much of my thinking and planning around digital and local services and how those offerings will look in 2020 and beyond.

Looking back I see God’s plan, wisdom and provision in the push and pull I have seen in myself and my business as far as working with clients online, then more local, then rethinking online and a healthy mix, classes etc. Even (or maybe especially) my personal trials have taught me so much about the home and priorities. It’s has been hard but beautiful to see how God does truly bring beauty from ashes. Easy? NO, but rich and full of lessons I wouldn’t trade and have me made more prepared me for this new chapter!

Some amazing local projects I have worked on the last 5 years have really taught me so much about every aspect of style and design at all budget levels. I am ready to share all of this with my wider audience online. That is exciting!

I have learned so much through both life and big design projects in recent years and I am ready to share some of that with you here! I have good nuggets that can be used at any level in your home. I have realized I can’t travel to every state or take every project and work with everyone individually but there are so many ways we CAN work together and create in the next decade! I can’t wait to inspire and help you with your homes in the coming years!

And as all working women know, so much of our work life reflects our seasons with our children and what we are able to do when they are napping versus driving etc. Hard to believe I have been decorating that long but it is here and I am grateful for the road and all of the lessons and ready to bring some of that back to you here, ONLINE!

So stay tuned. I am here for you as we wade through this mountain of content on social media and all of the home sites and real life. I know it’s a lot y’all. It is a lot for me. But we can keep it in perspective and keep the main thing the main thing as we create homes in the years to come!

Homemaking should be a joy not stressful or anxious and I want to help you navigate and feel good about your spaces so you can live life!

Drop me a note in comments if you have thoughts on any specific download sheets on online class you would like to see from Holly Mathis Interiors.

Maybe a series on paint colors, a course on kitchen remodel tips and tricks, how to navigate choosing a home builder? Or just my favorite ceiling fans or shopping hacks? I know I have asked this before probably and I have heard from some of you and it has helped me get to this place.

Don’t be shy, tell me what you see out there and like, don’t like and would like to see HERE!

[A note about LOCAL projects: I am booked locally for Spring/Summer 2020 but please email if you want to get on waiting list for Fall 2020 and tell me about your local project if you live in Brenham or Round Top, Texas area]
