I find design clients most often reach out to me at times of transition – a new home, baby on the way, newly single, etc. Which makes perfect sense, it’s in times of personal transition and change that we can crave change in our physical environments. Which, not surprisingly, has been shown to be one of the most effective ways of successfully navigating a transition. While a move to a new home or a new city isn’t always possible, a transformation of the space you’re in is often enough to help through the transition. Out with the old, in with the new.
I think every home should have one room or space that is bold, that stretches you out of your comfort zone. Because my belief (and hope) is that every time you step into that room, you’ll be encouraged to be bold, to stretch and push yourself in life.
Today’s home tour is a house I’ve been working on for the past year. Back orders, delays and waiting to get everything just right – I think we finally did.
With one of the smartest four year olds I’ve met and an adorable new born, this family wanted to create a space that was put together and stylish but not too delicate. As in most open concept homes, this is where the family spends most of their time, so kid friendly and durable were key. Mom Jami has a great eye and as a fan of Joanna Gaines, I new a Modern Farmhouse esthetic was the perfect look for this space.
