If you focus too much on being functional, the room can become boring and stiff.
— Miles Redd (Veranda, July/August 2012)
Isn’t this just soooo true? After all, day care centers are functional … but who wants their home to look like a romper room? Not that day care centers are romper rooms, but you get what I’m saying.
I love creating chic, sophisticated interiors that withstand the rigors of family life. I can’t count the number of times people have said in reference to my own home — “Are you sure twin boys live here?” Yes, yes, I am. Just wait until one of them comes running around the corner with a Nerf gun in hand. Functional, yes. Boring and stiff, no way!
