Affiliate Disclosure

LAST UPDATED APRIL 19, 2020

Sometimes when I mention specific merchants in my posts, I may have a financial relationship with some of those merchants.

From time to time, my blog posts and pages may contain affiliate links, which means I may get compensated/earn a commission at no extra cost to you if the affiliate links get utilized to make a purchase.

My editorial content, including the advice I/we provide for educational purposes and the opinion I express on products, services, and merchants, is not influenced in any way by advertisers or affiliate partnerships and the integrity of my/our content is in no way compromised by such financial relationships.

I only affiliate with products, services, and merchants that I/we believe will provide value to my readers. I only endorse products, services, and merchants that I/we have personally used/tested and consider the highest quality standard.

It remains your responsibility solely to conduct your investigation to determine whether to purchase an affiliate product or service.

You will not rely on any recommendation, reference, or information provided by me, and I cannot be held liable or responsible for any damages resulting from your purchase.

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

About Christy

White Oak Farmhouse - Christy Metcalfe

Hi there!  Nice to meet you!

A little about me.

I’m a huge homebody that loves interior design.

I  have a passion for helping others realize their dream of having the home they’ve always wanted.

I started an E-Design business this year so that I can help others with their home design projects virtually.  That way they can get the help they need and can then execute the design on their own.

If this sounds like something that would interest you send me an email so that we can set up a free 30-minute call to find out if E-Design is for you.
