about

Hello, I'm Natalie! The founder, designer, writer, and curator of my online shop. Outside this space, I'm a full-time marketing and communications professional. I have over six years experience in all things graphic design, marketing, writing, and content creation. I love social media, appreciate good branding, and have a keen eye for pretty things. I currently live in Washington, DC, with a few regular escapes to our Florida home. I adore good design, ephemera, & chocolate milkshakes.

I began my blog in 2013 to fill a creative void and to develop a space of sartorial and interior inspiration. This visual diary aims to provide a plethora of minimalist, thoughtfully curated content through effortless styling, frivolity, and mid-century interiors, with a few personal musings in between. I'm also a freelance designer and love to work on fun projects with like-minded creatives and entrepreneurs.

In September 2017, I opened my own online small shop (inspired by the beautiful products I share on my blog) full of vintage items, accessories, and flea market finds.
