 You had great love for a space and the dream look you found on pinterest, because everyone likes it.  Bought things and then returned them. And keep going back and forth because there is this dream of how it should be. But it just doesn’t feel right.

Then there are some who can’t let go of the things in that room that are keeping you from moving forward and having a space you truly love. As the songs says “Let it Go!”

Here are few tips on finding that room you really love.

So close your eyes and see yourself in the room…. how do you feel?

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.
