    These spaces are awesome! I especially like the kid’s space. I am a retired teacher and I can see many opportunities for learning in that space. I also love the aquapark SplashPad. How fun for the kids.

Imagine walking into your living room to find your toddler covered in marker along with your furniture! My daughter's "Marker Art" was a defining moment. It was then that I reinvented my business to find the very best family-friendly furnishings and solutions for my client's homes.

My blog shares the very best of what I have learned about family-friendly design these past 18 years.
