Color, white space, texture, and tone affect how your family behaves in your space. If your family room is dark, clunky, and outdated, chances are that room doesn't have a good history. Change your family dynamic by creating a space that makes your children feel open and energetic, while making you feel accomplished and at ease.
In 2016, I was one of many interior designers who donated time and talent to give The Rainbow Project's space a much needed makeover. The Rainbow Project is a non-profit in Madison, Wisconsin, that helps children from abusive or neglectful families and lifestyles. They are doing amazing--and amazingly difficult--work. It was an honor to be part of the team that took their space from dingy, mid-1980s to vibrant and fresh design.

I believe they do. I KNOW they do. Rest easy, you elegance-deprived moms. Grab a glass of wine and browse these easy-on-the-eyes kitchens that can withstand just about anything you kids can deliver (hmm, just like you!).
