My desk has two modes: super organized and super chaotic. More so the latter, than the former. 🙂 As a creative professional, my desk usually reflects what’s happening in my brain. People can often tell if I am swamped with work and just generally overwhelmed by simply walking past my desk. Regardless, of the state […]

“Teen-tot” is the developmental stage that Jo and I have decided Camille is going through. One second she’s bursting with happiness, the next she has snot rolling down her nose and she’s throwing shit. We are perpetually walking on eggshells.

The more airy parts of this space live a little higher and it helps to develop this happy marriage of light and […]

It’s actually a pretty painless process, but there are still some things that you should know. For the first-timer, hiring a designer can be somewhat intimidating so soak up this read […]

We all need it and some of us really struggle to get to it. I’m talking about sleep. I have so many friends who have collectively tried basically all sleep methods. My all-time favorite is the U.S. Army 2-minute sleep trick where you envision a black, velvet hammock while relaxing each muscle in your body […]
