About Me

Hi, my name is Julie Nichols.  Thank you for visiting Love My Simple Home, the blog I started in 2013.  I made our forever home in a small seaside town along the coast of Long Island.  Our journey started 16 years ago when we purchased a fixer-upper.  Because we put so much money into fixing the important things like a new roof, siding, windows, and plumbing there was no money left in the budget to decorate the inside of our home.  It's been my experience that you don't have to have a huge budget to make your home a pretty place to live. I turned our house into a home by shopping at garage sales, thrift shops, consignment stores and the side of the road. I love the thrill of the hunt and upcycling the pieces I bring home to fit my style.  I hope you find my projects simple to follow, unintimidating, and encouraging.  

Some of my work has been featured online at HGTV and Country Living.  I love working with brands on product reviews and sponsored posts.  You can contact me HERE if you are interested in working with me. 

My Personal Side:

I am a wife and mother.  Staying fit and healthy is important to me.  I try to exercise every day and I always make sure to make healthy meals.  I rather cook our meals at home then go out to eat. I'll often drive to the farm stand to shop local for fresh fruits and vegetables to make our meals. Summer and fall are my favorite seasons. I enjoy being outside on our boat, swimming in the ocean and playing with our dog on the beach.  I am a lover of ballet and enjoy the ARTS.
