Who I am  
Hi! My name is Rae, and I’m a down-south Georgia girl, born and raised. In 2009, I graduated from Georgia Southern University with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design. Since then, I have had the pleasure of working for the world’s largest home furnishings company for 8 years – 2 as a certified kitchen seller, and 6 as a retail designer. And recently I started a new position in the hospitality industry working as an Art and Design Manager for a small, celebrated casual dining brand.

My almost 10 years of design experience has totally shaped my passions. I am very passionate about kitchen design, and I consider myself a sincere ambassador for small space living, the integration of living with children, and the implementation of amazing low-price living solutions in the home... as well as in the workplace. I've always admired hospitality design, so now I have the opportunity to travel the country and learn all about how to give restaurant guests a unique and unexpected experience through design. Yes. my path as an interior designer has been non-traditional, but I AM pretty non-traditional so it works for me. :)

What I love
I love a flexible pixie haircut, an unexpected lip color, a sassy pair of pointy-toe flats, and chicken chimichangas with rice AND beans. I also prefer to live my life in the brightest of colors that this world has to offer - in my wardrobe, as well as my home. In my spare time I enjoy arranging fresh flowers that I find on Kroger Manager's special, cooking Blue Apron meals (I've cooked 300+), and digging for buried treasure at my neighborhood Goodwill. I also have a proclivity towards huge statement necklaces, and the perfect clutch to hold my enormous smartphone (team Android, of course).

What I believe
Harley Finkelstein once said, "It doesn’t matter how much money you have, but rather how much creativity you have." I always keep that in mind, for I know that the best ideas are often born out of the tiniest of budgets. You don't have to spend all of your resources to create a functional and beautiful space that is unique to your personality and addresses all of your needs. Little budgets can also create chic spaces. Don't EVER let anyone tell you any different. 

What you can expect
Here on ‘chic little me’, you’ll see tidbits of my life in the design industry, snippets of the townhouse that I own with my sweet hubby, Brandon, simple diys, and even occasional photo bombs of our adorable rescue, Chips (a Boston Terrier and Whippet blend or "Bos-Whipp" as far as we can tell). Moreover, you’ll experience the musings of a creative, cost-conscious, color-confident young woman who just wants to inspire and share with you in her spare time.
