“This entire process was amazing Gillian! You helped me look at my business in a different way.” – Leslie Saeta
My 100 Year Old Home is an entertaining and home decor blog, owned by Leslie Saeta. I met Leslie at Alt Summit in March, where she was presenting as a speaker and was introduced to her through my wonderful client Kelly. Instantly I knew we would work so well together. Soon after I got back from my trip to the USA, we started redesigning her website. Not only have we restructured her post archives for more straightforward navigation, and build a fantastic home page so readers can easily find what they require. We’ve also put together a fabulous “Home Tour” section where you can learn more about all of Leslie’s properties and follow her projects by room.
You may think, “I’ve seen this house before?” and you probably have, it has been used in many movies and TV shows! Her homes are genuinely something to behold, and you can even rent one of them out on Airbnb! This blog is a must-read for any homemakers.
Tell me a bit about your business and what brought you to start it in the first place?
I love to create, especially when it comes to our home, entertaining, crafts and even recipes. I wanted to share my passion with others to encourage them to enjoy this too!
What is one lesson that you wish you knew from the beginning?
Don’t be afraid to be yourself.
What was your “AH-HA” moment that made you take the plunge into this business?
When I started getting lots of encouragement to keep sharing what I love to do!
Out of all the amazing designers out there, why did you decide to work with us?
I looked at your portfolio and the sites you had designed were beautiful. And exactly what I was looking for.
I also loved that you communicated a lot by video. I love the videos you made to show me how to make updates now that my site is done!
What was your favourite part of the design process?
This entire process was amazing Gillian! You helped me look at my business in a different way. It’s as if my business was always organized in these topics and categories but I just hadn’t realized it.
The look and feel of my new website is better than I could have hoped. I love that I now have brand colors and fonts that I can use everywhere.
Plus, the process was fun and easy and way faster than I ever imagined.
You are amazing my friend.
