Blue Door Living is a blog about home improvement, home renovations, DIY projects and interior design. 

After nearly two years of exhausting on and off house shopping in Atlanta, the second we stepped into our now house we loved it despite the cracking wall paint and wear and tear that comes from a well-loved nearly 100-year-old home. Our house had swag, a happy energy and a whole lot of character. But it was going to be a project! It took us another few months to finally take the plunge and put in an offer.

I'm Corbin, and that's my husband CT. We are newlyweds, who got married and bought our house within the span of two weeks. Call us crazy. Our friends and family did.

An Atlanta native, I graduated from Miami of Ohio with a degree in Strategic Communications and always wanted to work in Marketing in New York City. After graduation, I moved back to Atlanta and started working at one of the ad industry's oldest agencies and then moved to a NYC digital shop a few years later. Now back in Atlanta, I work for one of the world's most iconic brands.

originally started blogging in 2012, and have loved mixing hands-on projects with my passion for digital marketing. I've been lucky enough to work or be featured by some of my favorite brands like Lulu & Georgia, Warby Parker and Chairish. With other big changes happening in my life, it felt like a change for my blog was needed as well. Blue Door Living {BDL} is a place I'll share my experience as a first time homeowner along with everything I love about creating a unique and personal home. 

The name Blue Door Living was inspired by the color our of door and the meaning behind it - said to represent stability, peace and to keep bad energy out. 

Thanks for following along!
