I’m Charlotte and welcome to my house! If peace and quiet is what you’re after… this would be the time for you to slooooowly back away from my blog. I promise to share ideas and honesty and fun but there will be a little bit of organized chaos. Grab your hot glue gun and a cup of seasonal coffee and take a seat!
Everyone loves a good back story so here’s mine. (Not that it’s good… I didn’t mean to set your expectations too high, but it is mine.) In 2012, I was living in New York City maneuvering subways not power tools. I worked as a school guidance counselor and knew nothing about blogging or designing or DIYing. But then we up and went suburban and I fell into blogging as a way to share my newly stay-at-home-mom status, maintain a modicum of sanity AND to become a star. (Ok… not that last part.) Remember how I said I knew NOTHING about blogging? Well… for years my blog was a cute hybrid of the words city + suburb + sanity… Ciburbanity. No one could say it. No one could remember it. And the only advantage was the available URL! Now I am DELIGHTED to be At Charlotte’s House which sums up this whole blogging adventure perfectly.
My husband Mark and I have five children between the age of 8 and 1. In 2014, we moved around the corner to our second suburban fixer upper and the project list grew longer than ever. I write about everything from fixing up this old house of ours to tiling to upholstery to flea market domination.
I’ve also suckered some producers into letting me appear on television. Yep… they actually let me go on LIVE TV. Joke’s on them. It all started with Flea Market Flip and the rest is in tidy little thumbnails for you to see here!
My design style is fun frugal repurposed eclectic. Look it up… it’s probably a thing. I like colors and whimsy and brass and rattan. I can negotiate like a ninja and I may or may not have 8 chairs, 3 coffee tables, and a dresser in my garage. I love my readers and try to connect with everyone via Instagram and Facebook.
I love hearing from all of you who stop by so please PLEASE introduce yourself and leave a comment below! I also try to share some wit and design via my newsletter so sign up to get my VERY sporadic email by clicking the image below! Or… just email me: atcharlotteshouse (at) gmail (dot) com
