Hi I’m Nataliya! You can call me Nat.

me bw (2)

I’m an interior designer who calls Texas home. I have a wonderful husband, Nate, and lovely pup child, Maci. We live in New Braunfels, a great little town tucked in between Austin and San Antonio. You should really check it out.

I started this blog as a creative outlet and kind of like a life diary. It got its name for my love of the old mixed with the new. My aim is always to inspire, drive creativity, help others reach their true potential, and keep it real. Thanks for sharing the journey with me!



  1. I love your new look Nat!!! I’m sorry that you’re worried about turning 30! DUDE! Seriously, you are AMAZING and should be proud to be exactly who you are, despite what society says is the norm. You and Nate are great people and I’m very happy to know you. 🙂

    1. Such sweet words, Shelly! Every so often pics from the Disney trip or the trip up to Jackie’s Cottage will pop up on my screensaver slideshow. I miss our fun times 🙂

      I know 30 isn’t the end of the world….I just don’t want to be old and lame you know?! 🙂 I hope I can feel young forever. I guess it’s more your mindset than the number that defines you.

  2. Hi Nat – I love your pinterest board furniture {on a budget}. I feel its really fitting for many people these days who are constantly moving and don’t really want to make a huge investment in a piece of furniture. I’m building tools on my website to allow people to shop that type of furniture and see it in their place – I’d love for you to take a look at it and hear your comments.

    1. Hi Chris! Thanks, I’m glad you like it! 🙂 I think it’s so important to have budget friendly furniture options that are stylish as well! I will check it out your website – it sounds like a great idea!

  3. Lovely blog! I can get lost in the beautiful photography of beautiful color schemes. Like you, I’ve moved many times, prefer smallish towns, and live in Texas. UNlike you, I thrive on caffeine!

  4. Hi Nataliya!

    My name is Jessica and I am from Walls Republic. We are a wallpaper company that offers beautiful designer wallpaper and I was wondering if you would like to collaborate on a project.

    Please email me at if you are interested.

    In the meantime you can also check out our website – – we ship free samples and I would love to send you some!

    Thank you,

  5. Hello Nat, I wonder if you can help me with something? I have seen a particular red and turquoise fabric on your blog site and wondered if you knew where I could get hold of it? Thank you!
