I’m Brooke, an Interior Designer and mom to 4 boys trying to live a stylish life with kids.
I have 4 kids. I know, my hands are full. I am surprised to be lumped in with “those of us with lots of kids”. But, I guess 4 is lots. I am often asked how I do it. Find time for creative projects, working on designing homes with my kids still young. My answer is I have to. While I love being a mom, I find I crave a project to work on, whether it be helping someone else with create their dream space or making a DIY project and working with my hands. I will think about it during the day and craft while my kids are at school, sleeping at night, etc.
We are a family of 6 living in Calgary Alberta including Me (Brooke), Dad (Mick), Jett (7), Jager (4), Boston (4) and Hayes (8 months). While the 4 boys under 7 years old makes outings more of a challenge, we love to get out and have fun. We like going to our community beach, amusement parks, and enjoying the great outdoors whether it be white water rafting (yes, we went while I was 7 months pregnant and brought our 6yo and 4 year old twins) or a boys day of fly fishing. I can’t wait until the baby is old enough to let us do even more fun things.
My Design Philosophy:
I believe that your home should be your place of refuge, a safe, warm and welcoming place that should reflect who you are and what you love. I love before’s and after’s and find inspiration from others. I love a good challenge, whether it be a small budget or a quirky architectural feature, because it always creates a unique solution. I hope that in posting inspiration photos, before and afters, design trends, and finished projects that I will inspire myself and others to create a home that is perfect for those who live in it.
