Hello & Welcome!

I'm Patty

Welcome to The City Cottage! I’m deeply passionate about creating homes that authentically reflect who we are—spaces that seamlessly blend functionality with beauty. As an Interior Stylist, I’m here to share the lessons learned along my journey, celebrating both the successes and the charming mishaps under the banner of “the good, the bad, and the whoopsies!” My fascination with home decor began early, and over the years, I’ve refined a simple yet stylish approach to curating spaces that evoke that feeling of ‘home’. Engaging in conversations about home styling, organizing, and the thrill of finding that perfect piece while shopping is what I thrive on. In a previous chapter of my life, I experimented with diverse flavors as a mixologist, crafting unique cocktails. Some of those recipes have found their way onto this website. And of course, there’s always a place for Champagne! Beyond design and mixology, I treasure moments spent with family and friends, exploring new places, and reveling in the beauty life has to offer. As a proud veteran with an unwavering love for God and country, I hold these values close to my heart. I’m genuinely excited to share my insights with you, aiming to help craft spaces that genuinely resonate with your personality. Loving the space you inhabit is paramount, and I’m here to guide you toward that goal. From sharing savvy shopping tips to championing organizational strategies, my focus is on making your space shine. My greatest joy? Being a Mom to Jason, a Great-Grandma to Amelia Rose, Grammy to Kacie, Thomas, Jameson, Bernadette, and Dorothy, and a cherished “Great-Aunt” to Ava Lynn. They are my world. While I adore every aspect of home design and décor, what truly ignites my passion is the opportunity to learn and share knowledge with my readers. Expect to find a treasure trove of inspiration and practical solutions covering home interiors, styling, organizing, renovations, and improvements. Don’t hesitate to reach out—I value your engagement and deeply appreciate your comments. Sending you blessings, and always remember, “You’ve Got This.”

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring new places, and taking in all the beauty that life has to offer. I also am a “Proud Veteran” with a Love for God and Country.

I’m excited to share my knowledge with you and together we can create beautiful spaces that reflect your personality.

I believe that our homes should be a reflection of who we are, my goal for myself and others is to LOVE the Home they are In.   Creating functional spaces and Shopping affordably is something that I myself do, so you can always count on me for Great Tips and Tricks on how to get the most out of your budget!

Organization fixation. LOL. I almost forgot to mention, the best part of my life!…I am a Mom to Jason and I am a Great – Grandma to..Amelia Rose and Grammy to Kacie, Thomas, Jameson, Bernadette and Dorothy. As well as a “Great-Aunt” to Ava Lynn. I love them all so much.
