Back at it.

I started this blog in 2013, about a year after having my first child as an outlet for creativity with hopes it would launch into something full-time; however, my main gig is still in non-profit finance.  As a working mother and wife trying my best to fit everything in, naturally somethings fall by the wayside.  I tried so hard to fit blogging into my daily routine and would beat myself up every time I couldn’t get a post out fast enough, when the ideas weren’t flowing or when I didn’t have the “perfect” story to share.  So the posts got pushed to every other day, then once a week, then once every month if I was lucky.

Then I had baby number 2 and needless to say, my focus was scattered. It’s been over a year since my last post; during my hiatus, I explored ways to transition careers and find work in the design field.

I think about design all the time. Whether it be rearranging our apartment a hundred times, watching various design shows on HGTV, or even flipping through my monthly issues of House Beautiful, to now reestablishing this blog; design is part of the fabric of my life.

Here are a few spaces to be inspired by:

A Brooklyn Gem
Homepolish designer Louisa Roeder’s landmarked Brooklyn brownstone.


the living room is bright and airy, with several seating areas, layered rugs and high ornate ceiling


in the kitchen, a bay windowed nook overlooks the garden; a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee and newspaper 


a large communal table stretches the length of one side of the open and bright kitchen


master bedroom; custom headboard, quilted duvet and one of a kind artwork

the artwork continues into the bathroom; the original clawfoot tub is hidden behind the fringed shower curtain
