Motivational Monday-Take a Chance on your Home


This is such a great quote and one I am going to start saying to myself when I take a chance or when something has not worked out according to plan.  I feel that Marker Girl is not only about Family Friendly but a state of mind… So take a chance and dare to be bold in your home here are just a few inspiring  rooms that do just that – dare!

Love the blue and green contrast and fun elements in this space

Just adding drapes, and a few other colorful pieces take this room from plain to bold…

Adding a fun art gallery that is a bit out of the ordinary to a wall can really bring a room to life…

Meet Karen

Imagine walking into your living room to find your two-year-old covered in marker along with your beautiful ottoman! I learned that lesson the hard way and redesigned our home around the family’s lifestyle. I am committed to bringing you the very best of what I’m living and learning, as well as making it fun.
