Welcome! I'm Julia, the designer and founder behind Tag & Tibby: a site dedicated to modern DIY and home decor projects. My previous work has been featured online at Better Homes & Gardens, Country Living, Domino, Brit + Co, Remodelaholic, Apartment Therapy, and more. 

I love to inspire others to improve their home on a small budget. I always shop on a small budget, and encourage you to do the same! 

Where are you from?

I grew up in Coastal Georgia just outside of Savannah, GA. My husband and I lived in Louisville, KY for 2 years and Saint Paul, MN for 7 before settling in North Carolina. Room by room we are updating our suburban house to make it feel more our own.

How did the name Tag & Tibby come about?

Tag & Tibby found its name through a 1930s early reader book and its characters Tag & Tibby (a dog and cat). I used to sell vintage goods on Etsy, and I adore all things antique and classic and the name just clicked! 

Personal Life

I have a degree in Product Design from Georgia Tech. I've been married to my husband (also a product designer) for 12 years...we have a 10 and 9 year old who are zany and silly and a lot of fun. My husband and I LOVE to thrift store shop! I would estimate that 50% of our furniture is from the thrift store.

Thank you for visiting! Please check out the site, pin a few things, or leave a comment!
