Join Me For A Modern Playroom "Pin" Party

I'm thrilled to be participating in a "pin" (Pinterest) party on Wednesday night.  A few selected writers on Project Nursery (including myself) have been asked to help create a modern playroom design using Little Nest furniture.  If you are designing a modern playroom definitely sign up to follow this board as it will be a good one.

Prayers for Oklahoma


Take a few moments out of your day to send prayers to the victims and families of the victims of the tragic mile-wide tornado that hit Oklahoma today. So many innocent lives were lost and homes destroyed.

Although I live in California now, I grew up with Tornado drills and warnings in Texas and even experienced a small one with my family which traveled over the DFW airport last year. So this natural disaster hits close to home for me.  Please reach out to your local Red Cross, Salvation Army and church to donate clothing, household items and money to those who lost everything.


New Ideabook on Houzz: Simple to Stunning TeePees and Tents


Check out my newest ideabook on Houzz featuring some of my favorite TeePees and Tents on the market.



After my ideabook was already published I saw this adorable play tent "Preppy Playhouse" in Pottery Barn Kids and had to share it with you all. I showed it to my four year old son and he said he even wanted it! Pretty darn cute!

Quadro Rug


I saw this Quadro rug last week at CB2 in Santa Monica and thought it was a great piece for a tween bedroom or a playroom. Graphic sophisticated style with playful childish color.

Turns out the editors at Lonny liked it too as it is featured this month in their Scout guide.

Bedroom and Playroom Combined Euro Style

Those Europeans make everything modern look so chic.  If you have a large room in your house why not combine the playroom with the bedroom?
