Design Mom


 When I first contacted Gabrielle Blair inquiring about being featured on her Living With Kids series on her super cool blog Design Mom, I really didn't think I'd even hear back from her. Not because she isn't wonderfully warm and friendly and down to earth - it's more because I thought that someone with a uber popular blog like hers - a professional blog, if you will - simply wouldn't have time to respond to little ol' me.

Thankfully, I was mistaken! She was nothing but lovely during all of our correspondence. (Don't get me wrong, I had my moments of panicked insecurity!) but overall I really enjoyed the opportunity to photograph our home, finding the little details of what I loved, of what made our home ours.



Come on over if you'd like a little peek! xo

  5. Cortnie, what a pleasure to see peeks of the inside of your home! Simply beautiful. I really love the yellow lampshade by the bed (among other things) and your style is just spacious and gorgeous. :)

  7. I hopped over to check it out, and I loved what I found. I even pinned your living room, because I am pretty sure you are living in my dream house. When can I move in? ;)

  9. Oh, Sadie - that's such a compliment. And we have a guest bed in the office if you'd like. :)

    Thank you so much, Shaleah! The poufs are called zafus and are traditionally used for meditation - although in our house they get used for lots of things! We got ours from Sun and Moon Originals.
