I’m Tiffany (aka Tiffany Chanel to my mom). My Château is located in Bowie, Maryland, in the heart of the DMV. In 2007 I begrudgingly moved into our family-owned, 1961 prefab home to save some coins. In my mind, I’d live there for a couple years then upgrade to a new build… 14 years later, I’m still here! I have since transformed this family staple into the oasis I now call Château Chanel, and I did it all on a limited budget.
I have a 9-5 job, which I enjoy, but my true passions are crafting and decorating. I’m a “frugal fannie” who loves sifting through consignment stores and I’m a firm believer in repurposing to make anything your own, no matter where it starts. From the moment I witnessed the metamorphosis of a fixer upper in my mother’s neighborhood, I was hooked and committed to making my own home everything I had ever dreamed.
I created my lifestyle brand Château Chanel to help spark this same passion in others, and to help guide homeowners through processes that seem all too cumbersome. Château Chanel is where I share the history of my family’s sacred plot of land, a little interior styling, a little DIY, a little crafting, a few good finds and lots of love along the way.
Here’s to making your house a home!
