Welcome and hello everyone! I’m Kate Riley, better known around the blogosphere as Centsational Girl. I’m a self-professed incurable DIYer who loves to paint and design anything from small crafts to large spaces, and I’m delighted to be part of the Better Homes & Gardens team! I’m a just simple gal with a simple dream: transforming the drab into the fab with an arsenal of paintbrushes, primer, and power tools, and I’m here to share my tips and techniques with all of you.
I’ve been passionate about design, décor, and do-it-yourself projects for as long as I can remember and I’ve been an avid reader of Better Homes & Gardens publications for over a decade. This blog is where I’ll be sharing my unique perspectives on design and do-it-yourself decorating. You can look forward to all kinds of topics from What’s Hot in design to Perspectives on Color, and other tried and true techniques for creating style on a budget! I’ve been fortunate enough to have my work featured in various Better Homes & Gardens publications, and now I have a voice right here online at Centsational Style. Come on over to say hello, pay a visit to my Project Gallery or wander through the Style Files where you’re sure to find something to inspire you!
All the best,
