Hello, we’re husband and wife team, Nick and Alicia, and we’re happy to welcome you to A Burst of Beautiful.
Founded in 2014, A Burst of Beautiful centers around inspiring others to create a beautiful and welcoming home. We believe in the old adage, “home is where the heart is”. It is a place to enjoy and celebrate family, cultivate creativity and nourish the body and soul.
I’m Alicia, the designer of our creative duo. I appreciate the beauty and simplicity of past eras and my specialty is infusing functional, modern-day living with a hint of charm and character from an old way of life.
I strive to share creative and inspiring ideas to create a beautiful home. It is my belief that a house can be both beautiful and practical, no matter what stage of life you are living. It is about embracing the home you have and decorating it with love and purpose.
Nick’s passion is working with his hands while expanding his knowledge of woodworking and carpentry. He has built many of the custom pieces in our home and is the one that can always bring my design ideas to life while adding his own unique touch to each piece he builds.
He also loves creating original recipes using simple, fresh ingredients to make seasonal, family-friendly meals.
Working hand-in-hand, we strive to build a functional, nurturing and beautiful home. It is our hope that our readers can relate to our energetic and family-centered lifestyle and feel inspired by the simple projects and design advice we offer. We love sharing our home as we uncover it’s potential and design a space that emphasizes the simple, fresh and timeless design we are drawn to.
Recently, we launched The DIY Hubs in connection with A Burst of Beautiful. The DIY Hubs gives readers a closer look behind the scenes and you can find Nick sharing his latest adventures as a self-proclaimed DIY’er, amateur woodworker, and wannabe chef always on duty.
Thank you so much for joining us here and it is our hope to inspire you to live in style and love your home!
