Welcome to my first attempt at a blog. Here goes…I spent my 20’s working in corporate America. I thought I was doing what I loved. Looking back, I did love it but in the back of my mind, I always wondered what would be next. Ten plus years later, my world changed for the better when my little one arrived. I am sure all you new moms out there would say the very same. I stopped working because my husband’s job moved us across the country. Determined to continue my career as a hospitality executive on the west coast, “Mommyhood” set in. With it came a whole new world, a whole new set of responsibilities, and various interests emerged – ones that I never knew I had. Suddenly home bound in a new city for three naps a day (my son’s of course) I started to look at my surroundings. I was now a “Director of the Home”. I initially thought, “How incredibly lame?!” My magazine subscriptions transitioned from Instyle, Travel & Leisure and Vogue to Domino, Elle Decor and Cookie! Ok, and the occassional US Weekly/In Touch. Afterall, I have to keep current with celeb moms and their babies. The internet became an awesome resource. I started online shopping for everything and I mean EVERYTHING that I found in the magazines! Decorating my nursery was just the beginning. Truthfully, it was a long journey. Between 8 shades of blue, 5 shades of white, I finally found the perfect color of paint, from the worldwide web! 90% of my nursery furniture and accessories was not only purchased online but came with free shipping. I stalked all the major home retailers looking for sales, collecting points and discount codes. I have a taste for the modern, contemporary and transitional look. I am not a professionally trained interior designer, I am a mom who appreciates good looking design. Mommies (and Daddies too) have no choice but to design nurseries for their babies and it can be a daunting task. It was such a struggle to find inspiring decor or design ideas where the cribs did not cost $1800 or Winnie the Pooh was not the focal point of the baby’s nursery (no offense Pooh, you will always be loved). Well here I am today with my dearest friend “Little Apple Design SF”, hoping we can help make it just a little easier for some of you.
