Hi there! Welcome to my home away from home, a tiny little place on the world wide web where I share my love for design, the ramblings of my heart and some of the life lessons I’ve learned along the way.
The truth is, I’d so much rather we meet up in person over a warm cup of tea, so that I’d have the opportunity tell you the story about how I ended up here (without really meaning too).
I’d bet we’d talk like old friends within minutes and I hope we’d share stories about our lives, our families, our homes and our businesses. Because if you’re anything like me those are the places where your heart is. I’m Tami. Designer, stylist, wifey, mama, and believer that we can all curate the lives that we love.
I live: In a suburb of Chicago with the loves of my life, hubby Chris, sweet baby Josie, and two very pampered puppies, Chloe Pug and Sadie Puggle.
I help: busy people style lovely, livable homes; creative businesses build strong, beautiful brands; & women, like you and I, intentionally, curate the lives that we love.
I design: paper goods and a collection of restored vintage furniture.
I write: This little blog to share my love of life and all things pretty with anyone who will listen (and give my DH a break!)
I love: Red wine, white space, fresh flowers, good hair days, hand-written notes, like-minded creatives, coral lipstick, gold and more gold,my husband, pinning, and work days that involve yoga pants.
I created this site in the spring of 2014, as a way to chronicle the closing of one chapter in my life- my first business, in order to follow my heart and start a new business. But along the way, I had to learn that His plans are greater than my own.
When I lost my first pregnancy to miscarriage, shortly after that first post, I took a much needed break on almost everything except for pouring what was left of my heart into the process of designing and building our first home.
Today, I know that my life is a work in progress (not perfection), my home looks better in photographs that it does most moments (in person), and my business is an opportunity to serve others through design (but it also needs to fit into my life and not the other way around).
I hope that as you stroll through this site, that you realize what I’m most about is curating a life that’s beautiful on the inside, the outside is simply an added bonus.
Deep down, at the heart of Tami O’Malley, I hope I can help other women achieve their goals and dreams and to make positive things happen in their lives, homes and businesses.
So please sit awhile and enjoy. And if you ever need a thing, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
