ahoy!

WELCOME TO CITY CHIC DECOR.

REVAMPING RENTALS 

CITY CHIC DECOR IS A RESOURCE FOR RENTER SOLUTIONS AND DESIGN IDEAS.

 According to the Pew Research Center, there are more renters now than at any time within the past five decades. Crazy, right? Unlike most interior design resources, which focus on designing larger or owned spaces, City Chic Decor demonstrates how to decorate and organize rental homes with space limitations.

AHOY! WELCOME TO CITY CHIC DECOR.

THE DECORATOR AND HEIRLOOM HUNTER.


Chelsey started City Chic Decor (EST. 2017), when she realized there wasn’t enough content on how to stylize and decorate a rented space. After exceeding thousands of visitors per month over many years, Chelsey’s blog eventually turned into her first book, Rental Style. Rental Style. under Skyhorse Publishing, was released in May 2020. Chelsey then went on to become a TV personality, speaking across the country about revamping the stigma of rental decorating.

In 2021, Chelsey decided to combine her love of genealogy + flea market finds and started returning lost heirlooms to family members and descendants. Growing up, Chelsey’s father taught her the ins and outs of genealogy, and it’s a passion for Chelsey to utilize that knowledge to reunite families with physical memories of their lost loved ones. 

Chelsey spends most of her time researching, decorating, and playing with her dog, Seymour. 

Time TravelHER


Known globally for returning lost heirlooms to families, Chelsey Brown is not your average, run-of-the-mill genealogist. In addition to her hundreds of heirloom returns, Brown has become a whistleblower in her field, breaking the stigma surrounding family drama, exposing the abhorrent world of underground artifacts, and giving her historical takes on pop culture trends and gossip. Join Chelsey as she shares the movie-esque stories behind the heirlooms she finds, discusses the scandal within the world of genealogy, gives her genealogical take on pop culture, and most importantly, uses these artifacts to travel back in time and connects us with raw moments in history.
