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 If your family room is dark, clunky, and outdated, chances are that room doesn't have a good history.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.

White sofas and kids don't mix well (sorry, design divas), which is why I've sourced some better options for you that are durable and (mostly) stain-resistant. Without further ado, here are 5 kid-friendly & stylish sofas.
I love being a mom, but I also love great design and understated elegance. I say "but" because kids and great design don't always go together--or do they?
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!).
This holiday season reminded me how easy it is to become disorganized. I did the typical mom-thing back in the day and bought stackable totes and baskets of various sizes.
Do they work? Not for my rough-and-tumble family!
I almost need an organizer for my organizers. The baskets fall askew on the floor. The totes get misplaced and mislabeled. It's just a mess.
That's why I finally opted for prettier and more permanent storage, from traditional cabinetry to open-faced shelving.
Do you love your home but wish it had just a LITTLE BIT MORE square footage? While you could go the traditional route of getting an addition, why not do a loft instead? If you have vaulted ceilings anywhere in your home, added a partial loft is completely possible. Get a new bedroom, office, game room, or library simply by repurposing the space you already have.
Here are the top 10 lofts I'm crushing on this month:
Aren't they gorgeous?
