The Ultimate Children's Design Resource

About haeley


I'm a business strategy consultant turned DIY home decor and crafting blogger at, while also staying busy as a mom to Stella (age 3) and Hazel (age 1) and wife of 7 years to my husband Ross. We live in the awesome neighborhood of Wicker Park in Chicago. I am a habitual shelter magazine clipper, design blog reader, and avid pinner. I love improvising on ideas I've come across to make them my own. Being a mom of two toddlers, I particularly like projects that make a big impact with minimal time and money invested! My blog Design Improvised chronicles my latest adventures in decorating my home, crafting, and entertaining, often with my daughters in tow.
