Simply. Inspired. Home.

We all need a heavy dose of simplicity in our chaotic lives.  It’s Overflowing is a lifestyle blog that was founded in 2008 by Aimee Lane.  She uses her cozy spot on the web to share inspiration for creating a simply. inspired. home.  On the blog you will find a collection of house tours, photography tutorials, organization tips, diy projects, fabulous shopping finds and room makeovers.

Aimee and Lonnie have been happily married for fifteen years.  She affectionately and appropriately calls him Stud.  He is the muscle behind every room makeover and his woodworking skills are quite impressive!  Together they have three children, Bennett (8), Belle (12) and Brady (10).  Their boys are all about baseball and their daughter is all about dance!

Family Picture #ItsOverflowing

Life is busy!  It is common to scurry around looking for something we’ve lost, to find ourselves infuriated by the smallest thing or to wake up still feeling tired.  As a mother, Aimee finds the focus of her heart is often mirrored in the voice of her family.  John 7:38 says, ‘If anyone believes in me, rivers of living water will flow out from their heart.’  This is her favorite verse because it is a constant reminder that as she keeps her eyes focused on Jesus and spends time reading her Bible, regardless of her circumstances, her soul will overflow with peace, joy and love.  Her favorite antidotes for busyness are keeping a clutter-free home and making travel a priority!

ADVERTISING: Aimee only promotes products she would bring into her home. She doesn’t push products for the mere purpose of getting paid for it. Sometimes she’ll share a product just because she loves it.  Sometimes she is given a product to review, she promises to tell you the truth. Sometimes she gets paid, but only because she trusts what she’s sharing.  Below are a few of Aimee’s favorite business collaborations.

  1. Love the tip on baking potatoes

  2. Hi Aimee! I have stumbled onto your blog and I just want to thank you for your wonderful photography lessons and tips! I went through them all and they have definitely helped me a lot. I cannot wait to fiddle with my camera and take shots to test aperture, ISO, shutter speed and metering. You are like a hipper Martha Stewart!

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always helpful to read content from other writers and use something from their web sites.

  4. I love the beautiful pillow! Did you make it or sell it? Buy It?

    Aimee- could you find out what window vender your friend Sarah used in her house? From this post: http://www.itsoverflowing.com/2012/07/dreamy-dwelling-mid-century-modern-home-tour/

    • Hi Kate! I hope you’re having a good week. I heard back from Sarah. They used Craig Morrow with Window Craft. Here’s the number, 214.662.5807. They were happy with their service. I’m excited for your house update!!! XO, Aimee

    I love so many of the ideas here. Can you direct your viewers to where the furniture is available from?

    I love gray also n will be buying another house soon, down sizing. I’ve been looking at gray color schemes. I love your Grey Owl. What paint brand is it? Behr at HD? What do you mean by cutting the paint by 50%?

    • Hi Beth! I actually LOVE Sherwin Williams paint so it is SW’s paint that is color matched from Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl (Sherwin Williams gets so many requests for the color combo is actually stored in their computer). Cutting the paint by 50% helps me to lighten the intensity for the rooms in my house that don’t have as much natural light. XO, Aimee

    Hi. I am desperately seeking one pair of Stockholm blad curtains. I have one pair, and need
    Another to complete a home redecorating project, but they
    Are discontinued. Do you have a pair for sale? Thanks
