Hello and welcome to Delineate Your Dwelling!
I’m Amy Weir and I started this creative blog in May of 2013. You can learn more about where Delineate Your Dwelling has been featured here.
I love being able to create and I believe we are ALL made to live creative lives (whether in big or small ways).
It is an honor that I get to share the excitement I find in the making of a home with you, my readers.
I believe to my core that building a beautiful home doesn’t have to cost a million dollars. Through…
- DIY projects
- clever home decor crafts
- a few perfect plants
- fun thrifting adventures… you can create a home uniquely YOU!
Your home is a sacred place. It’s a place to rest, recuperate, make memories and have fun so all the more reason to celebrate that every single home should be unique and be a reflection of yourself and your family.
And my favorite thing about being a DIY Home Decor blogger is sharing how you can do all those things with simple materials! Whether you are painting artwork for your home, growing plants to create a sense of warmth or thrifting a new sitting chair… home should be easy and fun!
I am drawn to simple graphic patterns, all the plants and cheerful but muted colors. I love bringing natural elements with a modern twist into my home. If West Elm + CB2 had a baby, it would be my dream collaboration!
I went to college at Purdue University and practiced Landscape Architecture for eight wonderful years. I’m now a mama to two kiddos and my creative juices did not stop just because I wasn’t sitting in a design office. In fact they multiplied ten fold.
I started by creating small graphic prints and invitations for my online Delineate Paper Etsy Shop (now my prints are available on Shopify).
I slowly realized I loved sharing the creative process with people rather than simply giving them a completed product. It is my greatest joy when friends and readers share projects they’ve been inspired to create.
I completely agree and love this Nate Berkus quote, “There should be items in your home that sing a little song to you when you walk by.“
Whether it’s a favorite family photo, artwork that speaks to your heart, a recent DIY or your new favorite plant – be sure to fill your home with YOU. There is no one just like you, let your home embrace that!
Follow on this journey with me, as we all create together!

I like your blog. We have some things in common. I have the curtain panel hanging in the window over your kitchen sink. I also have white shaker cabinets and my tile has a lot of teal green in the backsplash, and my husband graduated from Purdue! (way before you though) We are youngish middle age people. My design dilema is mixing what like, some glam, traditonal, antiques, boho, coastal, with my husbands taste simple, industrial, country. That’s a lot!
Hello Rachel and yay fellow Boilermaker! I always say do the staple items in the more simple style as the building block and then you can add in smaller decor items with the more eclectic/glam/boho vibes… for example get a simple sofa and add in more glam throw pillows with a traditional sidetable and an antique lamp. Hope that helps! 😉
Can you help me on some charts for a kid like behavior and chores and potty.
I do have a chore chart currently available, https://www.delineateyourdwelling.com/2015/04/free-printable-chore-chart.html
Amy! Your blog is beautiful! You’re so talented. I’m definitely going to be using some of these ideas at home and in my classroom. ❤️
You are too sweet for even checking out my blog, Heather! xo
I just found your blog while looking at closet craft rooms on Pinterest (that’s my next big project) and I think I’m in LOVE! I’m a crafty, stay at home mother of two and I’m in the process of trying to organize our home and life in general. I started on the Konmari movement, but it’s a little more difficult with two little ones at home. Crafting is my “happy place”. As I always like to say, “I love any excuse to get my craft on”. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us in the virtual world!
Well thank you so much for stopping by, Heather! Sounds like we have a lot in common. =)
