Found: Modern Kids Furniture

I’ve been on the hunt lately for modern kids furniture. My daughter is at the age where she can sit in mini chairs and do an activity or eat at a mini table and I am all for that, but it also has to work in our home. So that usually means grey, white, black and/or modern. (ha! My family will probably read this and roll their eyes.) But it’s such a small home, and it’s slowly closing in with more and more little human things…atleast if there’s some consistency with the design style, it might all flow together and not look as much like a daycare when you walk in the door, as I fear it does.

Here is what I’ve found so far:

inspiration: minimalist storage ideas

I seem to pin a lot of minimalist storage ideas. It’s not random, because it’s probably one of my biggest struggles in this old farmhouse with no closets, mudroom, garage or any of those handy places! It’s kind of a blessing in disguise in some ways, because it’s forced us to step in to and aspire to a bit more of a minimalist lifestyle. With a toddler in residence, it can be tricky to keep her volume of stuff in check on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. I am constantly striving to blend toddler style with my own, and also tidy toddler things in a way that is still appealing to a toddler! Does that make sense? That balance is on my mind a lot lately, and I’ve found some minimalist storage ideas that I find interesting:

Freelance Graphic Designer

I’m a freelance graphic designer, this is my home office… It’s cozy…it’s basically the size of a closet and there’s no door. So, it’s not a quiet space and with a toddler running around it usually isn’t tidy either. But, it’s my space and when I get to sit down and be creative and work…

Before + After: Barn Makeover

We have an old (like 1840’s original) barn, that’s pretty and charming…but attached to it is a building that’s less charming. When we bought this house I had dreams of turning it in to my studio. That was a dream. It’s been taken over with tractors, lawn mowers and all the essential larger scale equipment….
