Chic Little House was founded in 2009, by Interior DIY Design Blogger Katrina Sullivan. She resides in Sacramento, California with her husband and their two children. After they purchased their first home in 2009, Katrina's love of interior design and tackling DIY Projects took center stage. She was inspired to blog and share the renovation journey of their small 1956 Rancher House. She loves filling her home with both new and vintage pieces, and on the weekends, she can often be found sourcing flea markets and thrift stores in hopes of finding the next vintage piece that needs some love.
