I’m Emily Cosnotti. Everything I know I learned from the internet.

I am currently reviving a 1929 Tudor-ish cottage in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania with my husband and best friend, Andy. We have the cutest corgi ever, her name is Penelope.

I live for good design. Life is too short to live with anything you don’t love. There are always choices, so have an opinion.

Profesh Life

I’ve traveled the world as a home goods, gifts and electronics buyer, designed printed products for preserving visual memories, and lead creative teams to grow companies like ModCloth, Photojojo, Parabo Press and My Subscription Addiction. I follow my passion for interior design here on The Sweet Beast Blog.

Sponsors and Collaborations

I am enthusiastic about my favorite brands and want to spread the word about products I love. If your brand would like to work with The Sweet Beast, please reach out to [email protected] for a list of upcoming home projects and to see if there’s a match to be made.

All photos featured here were taken by me unless otherwise noted. You are welcome to use any of my images but please give credit and link back to The Sweet Beast.

    Hello Emily, I discovered you while looking for DIY floating frames for my paintings. Your Dad’s work is excellent, and your art work is lovely as well! Thank you for the instructions. PS, I once lived near Seven Springs. Mountain vistas are wonderful. ~Dianne
