Editor’s note: We’re so excited to bring on our 2023 Brand Ambassador, Jessica Sigmon of Itty Bitty Farmhouse! Jessica is a small town girl from North Carolina who loves a good DIY project, flea market picking trip, and Pinterest scrolling session. She has a love for all things farmhouse and vintage. In 2023, Jessica will be helping our readers learn how to decorate, DIY and style on a budget. (Subscribe to the magazine if you haven’t already so you don’t miss her column!)
We’ve done a Q&A with Jessica to help you all get to know her better! Here’s a bit about Jessica Sigmon.
American Farmhouse Style: How did you get started with blogging and home decor?
Jessica Sigmon: It started when I was making little wooden tables. I had an Etsy shop for that for a long time (I just shut that down earlier this year). I started posting on Instagram about the tables, and people commented that they liked my styling. So I started doing that in 2018.
AFS: What’s at the core of your decor brand, Itty Bitty Farmhouse?
Jessica: How to style your home in a cozy way, and with budget-friendly DIYs. With some of these decor items, we could have someone do it or buy it, but why not make it it if it could save money?
AFS: What’s your favorite room in your house?
Jessica: I love my kitchen! It’s my favorite thing to style because of all the shelving. I get to style it differently, put things in the kitchen people wouldn’t normally think of.
AFS: What’s been one of your favorite DIY projects?
Jessica: My laundry room. It was a dark hole. I had to find a way to bring light into it (it doesn’t have a window). A lot of people ask me how I did the brick background. It’s not real brick but it’s faux brick paneling. It has the texture of real brick.
AFS: Anything new or exciting coming up that you’d like to tell our audience about?
Jessica: My husband and I would like to move my husband’s family land and build a farmhouse-style home from scratch there. We’re not sure exactly when that will happen, but potentially within the next 2 years.
