One of the things I appreciate the most is when people are realistic about the design of their homes when kids are in the mix. I am all for a gorgeously styled room pictured perfectly for a magazine…but it doesn’t tell the whole picture and it often makes me feel unworthy of ever obtaining such levels of perfection in my own home. Which is silly because we all know that just out of the picture lies the evidence of children in the house!
Maybe that’s why I appreciate these glimpses into the realities of these designer’s homes so much. It doesn’t lower the bar, but it certainly makes me feel like it is no longer impossible to obtain.
