Welcome to A House with Books!

I’m Hayley – the keeper of the books, furniture painter and frequent re-arranger.


A House with Books is my corner of the internet where I share what I know about home decor and books with a sprinkle of cooking, gardening and family lifestyle.  I don’t claim to be an expert, because I’m certainly not, but I know what I like and what I love is inspiring others to make a home of their house…and maybe find a new favorite book or two.

My little family and I live in Fort Worth, Texas in a new, craftsmen style home. My husband and I have been married for 7 years and we have one, precious little girl.

You can follow along with me daily on Instagram and here on the blog you’ll find DIY tutorials, room makeovers, home design tips and reading recommendations.

I’m so glad you’re here and I hope you stay a while…
