Chelsea

Hey, welcome to MHB! I’m Chelsea – the resident decorator, baker, and pillow hoarder around this lifestyle blog. We like to talk about decorating, DIY projects, cinnamon rolls, and other creative things. I believe that you should decorate for your people, not the house, that blue and white is always right, and that dessert is always a good idea. I’m passionate about rental decorating and helping other renters make their houses feel like home! I’m so happy you’re here!
