Hi! We are Ryan and Lauren Holverson, also known as ‘The Holbertans’. We’ve been married since 2009 and reside in Georgia. Together we travel, renovate our home, and ‘DIY’ the hell out of everything. We created this site to share our designs, projects, and some random fun along the way.

About Lauren

I joke that I come from dysfunction junction, but it’s the truth. My life isn’t always pretty, but I own that baggage, and I wear it well. I’ve worked very hard to get where I am, and I’m so blessed to have an awesome husband. He has been my best friend since I was eighteen. I’m a marketer, wife, cat mom, lover of learning, & reno junkie. As a child, a fun day was moving all of my furniture around, reorganizing my belongings, and painting the walls! Looking back, I should have gone to school for interior design. I work with small businesses in Georgia by day, and I pursue my passion for designing after hours. Most of my inspiration comes from my love of Hawaii and most recently, my obsession with Joanna Gaines.

About Ryan

Unlike my wife, I was pretty fortunate to have two wonderful parents that stayed together. We moved several times throughout my childhood, and my parents always worked very hard on their homes. I guess it’s no surprise that I’m quite handy. I never thought I’d be renovating an entire home, but it makes my wife smile. I also enjoy my collection of tools that I’ve acquired over the years. Although I obtained my degree in computer engineering, I didn’t go into that field. There is no easy way to describe what I do, so I won’t bother. I’m a huge Snoopy fan, and I enjoy going on vacation.
