The biggest design question I hear is how to decorate your home to reflect your style and not a local toy store when you have kids.

What’s the most common reaction you get when somebody walks through your door?

When a couple without kids walked in our home, this was their response. I always forget you are parents now, but the diapers under the TV console instead of DVDs were a dead giveaway.


I know your kids are your world but are you tired of your home looking like a three-year-old decorates it?

We had bible study at our house recently, and everyone loved that we had a playroom to store everything kid related.

Despite having a playroom, the toys still manage to get scattered around the house, BUT it isn’t an issue because at the end of the day they can all be put away quickly.

After becoming parents, you eventually accept the fact your home and the majority of your old life will probably never be the same.

Adapting the spirit of an eagle scout will most likely guarantee your survival. There is no reason to fear the unexpected because you’re always one step ahead unless your sleep deprived then well, anything goes.

Following my design philosophy, your home will quickly convert from daddy daycare to regaining your homes integrity and style.
