I’m Kirstin, the mama, M is my little, and along with a super dad and two pittie mixes, we have curated our home.
Patrick, my best friend and husband, and I met in highschool, dated through college and married shortly after. We bought our first home in Brookfield, Il with a down payment we had scraped together and I got to work.
As a young teacher with a husband in law school, there wasn’t much spare cash (who am I kidding, there is still not), so there was a lot of DIY going on. I don’t like to spend a fortune to get the look I desire and often just rearrange what I’ve got to freshen up for each season. Everyone always jokes that the house has a different vibe each time they visit, but I swear I am not spending a ton of money on it!
We loved our little Brookfield bungalow, but needed a little more space as our family grew so we moved to a little ranch a few miles away. Then in May 2017, we welcomed our little girl, M.
I have continued to curate this home – a place where our family feels nice and cozy. It is a functional space, designed on a budget, that will work for our family for years to come. This is what I love to do, and I want you to fall in love with you home as I have mine.
It may just be a hand-lettered sign, or maybe a total room redesign. Building an online design palette, shopping for the perfect pieces for your space, and in home consultation are all available to you.
