About Me


I love my plate wall so much, I posed with it. Nerd for life.

I'm Paige. I'm 28 and I live in the Chicago 'burbs with my husband Nathan. We have no kids and no pets, so that affords us plenty of time for eating spicy food and looking for bargains.

Team Married!

Little Nostalgia began as a way for me to stave off boredom at my former day job, but when I went back to school for interior design in 2011, the blog changed with me. These days it's where I share DIY projects, affordable decor ideas (including stuff we're doing to our own house) and a few fashion tips, just for fun.

We bought our first home in 2012, a split-level from the early '70s that was partially updated over the years. We're slowly painting over all of the '90s oak and making it our style. You can check out some of our biggest projects right here.

This used to be golden oak. If you can even imagine.

When I'm not parked in front of the computer or washing paint out of my hair, I'm either reading, watching reality TV, or wondering when I can get my next plate of nachos. My favorite books are Harry Potter.
