Welcome to City Chic Decor!
My name is Chelsey Brown; I’m 28 and live in the fabulous borough of Manhattan. I moved here exactly five years ago and I’ve been a television producer and editor for the last few years. While my first passion is producing, my second passion is interior decorating – I spend most of my time outside of work redecorating, reorganizing, and reading all about interior design.
After years of studying up & teaching myself interiors, I realized there wasn’t too much content out there on how to stylize and decorate a rented space. Most books and blogs out there teach you ways to redesign large houses or renovate rooms, but in a rented space you can’t change too much. As a young professional living in a small city apartment, I wanted to create a beautiful home that reflected my style (without driving my management company crazy!) I’ve made it my mission over the last year to create ways to redesign a smaller home without having to renovate, and now’s my opportunity to share all my insight with you!
After exceeding thousands of visitors per month, my blog eventually turned into a book! Rental Style, under Skyhorse Publishing, was released in May 2020. I then went on to become a TV personality, speaking across the country about revamping the stigma of rental decorating.
I am honored to have had the amazing privilege to not only share inspiration through this blog, but also through my brand-new book called, Rental Style. Published by Skyhorse Publishing and distributed by Simon & Schuster, this book proves to people than you CAN create a dream home without renovation. If you want to pick one up for yourself, you can do that on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target, or through your local bookstore.
My hope is that this blog and brand will inspire, educate, and enlighten all who read it.
