project design 2014 blogger day: you’re invited!

Do you have a blog?  Will you be in the New York metro area on Wednesday, October 8, 2014?  If so, you are invited to Project Design 2014 Blogger Day!

Project Design 2014 Blogger Day InviteYou’ll enjoy exclusive tours of the newly designed areas of the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, featuring forty-five of America’s top interior designers.  Lisa Mende and I have had a sneak peek of several rooms, and I can promise you won’t want to miss the incredible designs by Young Huh, Brian Patrick Flynn, Libby Langdon, Kelly Dall, Jennifer Cohler Mason, Jennifer Flanders, and so many more.  The party starts at 11 am and includes a brief program and lunch.  Transportation is available and departs at 10 am from the the New York Design Center.  Please RSVP to Liza Morten at Blitzer & Company if you plan to attend!

Cocoon by Kerry SteeleKerry Steele generously donated a gorgeous painting entitled “Cocoon” to Lisa’s and my business office.  In its honor, and in hopes that parents using this office to conduct their daily business will feel sheltered from the storm of illness, Lisa and I dubbed our project “The Cocoon Room.”

my top tips for stylish living … with children!

Cleaning House SignIt sure feels like this sometimes, doesn’t it?  Boy oh boy (pun definitely intended), I can relate!

As a mom of twins, I’m constantly asked “are they twins?”  When my boys were small, I used to answer that question with another question.  “Boys, are you double trouble or twin tornadoes?”  What do you think they answered?  “BOTH.”  And not in their inside voices!

How is that possible?  Today, I’m over on Tobi TV sharing my top tips for living a stylish life with children.  I truly believe that children who grow up around and are taught to appreciate beautiful things enjoy happier lives!  Thank you so much to my friend and mentor, Tobi Fairley, for having me as her guest.  I’ve learned so much through Tobi’s Mastermind program, and I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to share my passion.    

What are your favorite tips for living stylishly with children?
