Author and TV personality Chelsey Brown started her blog, City Chic Decor when she realized how little information there was on decorating and designing rented spaces. She wanted to show the world that believed an owned space was the only true home that people can transform their rentals into their dream sanctuaries (without driving their landlords crazy!). Chelsey’s work has been featured in countless publications, print magazines, and on-air such as Today, the New York Post, CBS, ABC, NBC, BBC, Domino, MyDomaine, Apartment Therapy, The Kitchn, and more. After becoming a TV personality and speaking across the United States about turning rental spaces into dream homes, she won the Amara award for the best interior styling blog in 2020. Her oh-so-relatable humor and knowledge of interiors makes her a powerhouse figure in the world of decorating.
