Well hi there!  My name is Ali Freeman.  I am a new wife, academic, dreamer, dog mom, decorator, cook, and optimist from Athens, Georgia.  I am glad that you've made it here and hope you'll take some time to poke around!  My husband, Mark, and I have built a home for ourselves out of choice finds, creativity, a minuscule budget, and a LOT of hard work!  We live in a beloved part of Athens called 'Normal Town' (hence the company name) and developed Normal Town Nest in honor of the eclectic and creative nature of this wonderful place that we call home!  If you see something you like, GREAT!  If you see something you like and want to buy, EVEN BETTER!  Also, we are totally open to custom orders, so message us and we'll get started on your vision!  We are a great team of dreaming and creativity (me:) and brawn and skill (Mark)!  Together, we hope to fulfill your decor dreams on a reasonable budget.  We cannot wait to get to know each and every one of you!

Warm, Warm Regards, 

Ali & Mark


  1. I vote for "Traveling Riverside Blues Three"!

  2. Although, "Moby Dick One" is pretty great too....

    1. Thanks Elissa! Right now I am leaning toward "Moby Dick One." It's a bit of a safe choice, but still has a cool 'current' edge:)
