Modern? Contemporary? Traditional? Transitional? What does it all mean anyway?? Honestly, I feel like most people, are a mix of several design styles. They like a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Today, I’m going to unpack what each of these styles mean and give you lots of examples of each so you can actually have an answer to this question when asked.Read More
This summer, I had the privilege of designing an office for a dear friend and co-worker from when I used to teach sixth grade math! This girl was my lifeline during those first years of teaching. We shared a closet and would leave the doors to it open so we could sit at our desks and chat with each other. In a job that I struggled with every day, she made life look easy. When we both started having babies around the same time, it just brought us even closer, and she is one of the few people I still keep in touch with since leaving that school three years ago.
Today I get to share with you a reveal from one of my favorite types of rooms to design- playrooms! I just enjoy doing kid spaces so much. I get to tap into my inner 5-year old and think about what kinds of things I would love as a kid.
Finally!! The time has come for our sweet baby’s nursery reveal. Man, this room took some time. Kid spaces are one of my favorite spaces to design and as soon as Dave and I got pregnant, the excitement started for what this new nursery was going to look like. For the first 20 weeks when I swore I was having a boy, my ideas were obviously headed in a completely different direction than where they needed to be. It took me awhile to get my head around planning another girl nursery, and this pregnancy made me super indecisive. I finally got brave enough to start with a solid design plan in July and finished this room literally the day before Logan was born. While there are still one or two things I may add down the road, this room is definitely one of my favorite spaces ever, and other than Riley’s room, it’s my favorite space in the house.
