Today on Fox News' imagazine, I was featured in an article about decorating for young families and also in another little slideshow/ article with photos & tips. I was interviewed by Brooke Eaton of Fox News and she's a very sweet, savvy writer and can't thank her enough for the article. I was a bit nervous to be interviewed, but it was a lot of fun and Brooke made me feel instantly at ease.
The focus of the article was on decorating for young families, particularly those with kids. As you know, I haven't given up the fight for a pretty house even though I have two little boys. (Although at times it feels like a losing battle ;) It's funny to see yourself quoted in an article and I had to laugh out loud when one of my quotes when asked about design tips for parents with young children was, "It's your life, not your kids'." hahahah oh boy... But as harsh as that may sound, (as far as decorating / designing in concerned ;) I believe it 100%. Design a house that still feels adult/ beautiful by keeping kids' toys to a minimum and providing attractive, accessible storage for them. Kids' toys can be in every room of the house without taking over. A running joke in the family is that one of the first things you say to your newborn baby when he arrives is "welcome to our world."
BUT- All joking aside, we love our little dudes- we just think they should keep their primary-colored toys hidden ;) ;)
