Playing House

Fairytales Can Come True There are several places within almost any home where there’s an opportunity for a dedicated space that belongs exclusively to the kiddos. I love to find creative ways to incorporate these small areas into any home where little ones can play with (and contain!) their toys. Let’s take a look at...

Double the Fun

How to create a BUNK ROOM that’s a SLAM DUNK room! I love designing kid’s spaces because the challenges of space and function push me to create rooms that work well for little people in a beautiful way. Let’s take a look and see how these rooms go from what could be a “yawn” to...
