Things aren’t always as calm in our home as it may seem. I routinely take pictures of E cuddling on the couch because these moments are precious and fleeting. Very fleeting.

Sometimes our house feels like it is being taken over by kid things, but we make a conscious effort to design our spaces in ways that make everyone in the household feel welcome, including the adults. Decorating with kids can be a challenge, so this month I shared my best tips with Design & Living Magazine.

Spoiler – My biggest secret is closed door storage.

In other news.

I swapped out a piece of abstract art from Home Goods with a unique Clare Elsaesser print. You should see the detail of this print up close. It is unreal how stunning it is. I’m already considering adding another piece of hers to our home. I particularly love this piece and this piece.

I bought the gold frame above and the mug below at Target. While neither item made it in my Best of Target’s Fall Collection post, when I saw them in person I had to have them.

I also purchased the ceramic bowls pictured above for our basement bar. Until tomorrow, all full-price dinnerware and glassware is on sale via Cartwheel for 15% off. 

Monday, was of course Halloween. We had a steady flow of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood for the first time and E, very predictably, dressed up as Doc McStuffins. She was a very happy, sugar fueled toddler. 

Our basement progressed a little. Quartz counters and the bar backsplash were installed. It went smoothly and turned out beautiful. I’ll be sharing the results early next week.

I’m still on the hunt for some of our basement lighting, including for our stairwell. I’m between this light and this light. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below.
