It’s so exciting to be featuring in the January issue of BBC Homes & Antiques! On sale December 1st!

Welcome to City Chateau! And greetings from my city chateau, which is a tiny apartment in a quiet Amsterdam neighborhood where I live with my husband and our darling baby boy, Teddy. I moved here from Connecticut almost five years ago when I met my now husband. When we were expecting Teddy, I gave up my job as an tour guide. Although I don’t miss living out of a suitcase and having to remind myself what state I’m in every morning, it has been more than a little jarring to become a stay-at-home mom. I’m trying to get back to writing and art– two of the things I’ve always been most passionate about but had trouble devoting myself to, on the road.


In our little Chateau, we’ve created a very old-fashioned world filled with flea market loot, successful art projects, and walls of books. The City Chateau blog about seasons, shopping, stories, crafts, cocktails… everything to make life richer, for those of us who aren’t rich!
I’ve always loved the expression ‘Don’t be a beggar sitting on a bag of gold’. I think it’s always worth reminding yourself of what you’re good at and racing full-tilt toward your own rainbow.
