When it comes to taking a page and life cues from others, I always come back to @abigailedgecliffe, a long time friend and confidant who leads and lives with grace, intention and purpose. We crossed paths long ago on the campus of UMass, and remain closely connected to this day. I cherish this friendship and I cherish this person, who has worked tirelessly to see her dream of a STEM based race car system for children—@raceyatoys— launch and touch the world. Two years after she first shared this idea with me, cars are rolling and her Kickstarter is racking up supporters. If you believe in the power of creative play, support Abigail and her team. Please. x
There are subtle but interesting changes taking place within the infrastructure of modern family homes. Working moms and dads want what they want: smarter devices for living, open spaces to pass the time together, and even dedicated spots for the family pup. Read all about it in my latest story for the @bostonglobe, on newsstands today. .

happy 5th birthday to this wondrous and wild force of nature. you are love and loved, pure and simple.
On the day we received Theo’s diagnosis of Angelman Syndrome, we were told not to hope for much for our son. From that day on, my relationship with hope has changed dramatically, but has never wavered. And now with a potential cure on the horizon, this grand yet complicated feeling is experiencing yet another permutation. See our story via the link in my profile. And thank you to @themightysite and @ovidtherapeutics for letting me share a little peek into the world of Theo. ❤️ #angelmansyndrome #ovidtherapeutics #themighty
Hey folks! I’m crowdsourcing for an upcoming Boston Globe story and want your input. What small things make a big difference to you in the home? These can be things you have or wish to have. I’m looking for input from designers, real estate agents, contractors (what are your clients asking for?) as well as ladies/moms AND gents/dads. For example, laundry on the same floor... direct access to a garage...a smart doorbell, etc. Please feel free to comment below or send me a message and I may quote you in an upcoming feature. Feel free to tag others who might have a unique idea or two to share. Thanks! x

I took a chance and invited myself to see the incredible @galenwcheney in her art studio today. When I told her that a certain painting of hers resonated deeply with me, she dug it out and hung it so I could take it in as it’s truly meant to be seen. And of course I cried like a baby. Thank you, Galen, for a lovely afternoon and for doing what you do. Your work is beautifully and entirely bewitching.
Working on a Saturday ain’t half bad. I meet incredible people, I stare at beautiful handcrafted things all day, and I get to draw and create dreamy rooms. Here’s a sketch I’m working up for a customer who’s building a new living space on her family home. I’ll be here today if you want to pull up a chair and talk. x #anthropologie #anthropologiehomedesigncenter #interiordesign #interiorstylist #homestylist
