My Story

I'm Astleigh, wife to a bearded engineer and mama to two darling girls + a little mister. We call the mountains of Virginia home, and our very favorite time of year is autumn. We truly come alive when the crimson leaves are floating down; the pumpkins are piled on the porch; and the crisp air is wafting through open windows. Nothing can compare, except maybe the holidays. We love to celebrate around here!

This life is wild and lovely and my best dream come true. Any given day I'm toting a little on my hip while sipping iced coffee, simultaneously dreaming of my next DIY, a new candle scent for the shop, or how to rearrange the furniture. I'm a dreamer by nature, called to be a mama and a creator. I feel so thankful to be able to embrace both, while being cheered on by my favorite humans. Those four are my foremost inspiration.

Next to my people, my biggest passion is designing and styling our home. I dream of cozy spaces full of charm and character where memories are made and traditions created. There is nothing quite like making a house feel like an adored space that cultivates joy and comfort. I truly delight in making a home for my children to grow up in. Home is our happy place.

Home On Oak is a culmination of my greatest loves - design, motherhood, baking, holidays, and traditions. This little online place is where I create from my heart, aiming to inspire and encourage. I hope you leave here feeling excited to curate beautiful spaces; to invest in quality time with your loved ones; to celebrate all the things; and to live your best life each and every day.
