Hi, I’m Wenda, owner of Sunday Visits Home, an online home décor and furniture store that opened in August 2021. My team and I have had so much fun that I am opening a storefront in Ankeny, Iowa in early 2023..
Sunday Visits came to life because of my passion for anything home design. When I was young, my mother, an artist, surrounded us with beautiful art and design. My childhood home was always changing - but always comfortable - and it was fun to see what my mom’s creativity would bring next.
My Danish maternal grandmother also heavily influenced my style. As a child, I knew her home was different. It was cozy, which we now call "hygge", and she had the most beautiful light colored leather sofa, dimmed lighting, and clocks ticking. She had a church bench pulled up to her kitchen table with cushions that you’d sink into. I loved her small and very cozy home!
My husband, kids and I had the pleasure of living in Belgium for two years and once again, I found myself in awe of the what I was seeing and feeling. I soaked in the beautiful design of Belgium and as we traveled through Europe my view of design was expanded.
I absolutely love seeking out special items, furniture, home décor and more for the home. I love the hunt for beautiful items with a story and if they are handmade that is even more special.
