When Ree Drummond isn’t in the kitchen or overseeing her Merc store downtown, she can be found out on the property walking the dogs or pitching in to help with the work on the ranch. It’s no wonder that she’s decided to create a beautiful oasis at home, where she manages her different business ventures as well as creates new recipes to be included in her successful cookbooks and TV show.
As for her ongoing home renovation project, Drummond’s caption on the image of the new tiled flooring (seen above in a sample from Casa Castillo) read, “The dogs will get mud all over this but you only live once,” accompanied by a crying, laughing emoji. In fact, you can see one of Drummond’s dogs from a recent Reel, relaxing on another intricately patterned tile floor — this one outside the home.
Drummond’s bustling home life is centered on her family as well as her love for dogs. At one point, she was known to have seven dogs, including a few Labrador retrievers, in addition to her beloved basset hounds. She recently added one more dog to the family, an adorable mix named Shelby. Her new tile flooring provides just the right backdrop for all of this activity. It’s sturdy and resilient, able to stand up to muddy paws, work boots, and visits from friends and family. But the tile’s beauty also provides a serene sense of inspiration to keep Drummond centered in the midst of all the happy commotion.
