About Little House Big City

I'm Chloe Joy and I started Little House Big City in 2014 to catalog the adventures of turning a dark DC rowhouse into a bright and happy home. I write about DIY projects, tips for small-space living, shopping around town, and home style. 

I studied graphic design at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Journalism & Mass Communication and moved to Washington after graduation. Since moving here I’ve been working full-time as an infographics designer at a global news organization. In May 2013, I bought a small rowhouse in the city and got to work!

I consider myself a pretty handy gal. I grew up with an addiction to Trading Spaces and was thus brainwashed early on to believe I could build anything I could draw–so far so good. Being young in my career & paying a premium for city living, my biggest limiting factor is $$$, so I'm always looking for DIYs and deals to get the look for less.

I hope you’ll follow along to see our latest shenanigans.
