Ever since Gabrielle Stanley Blair became a parent, she’s believed in one idea strongly: design doesn’t disappear when kids appear. She has always felt that an intentionally designed environment is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your family. That the items and decor one chooses tells a story. That a home is truly a child’s first and favorite picture book, and the comfort she reaches for when she needs it most. In this, her first book, Blair offers a room-by-room manual for keeping things sane, organized, creative, and stylish. She provides advice on making a foyer more functional; which sofas work best for different kinds of families; how to organize family photos; throwing birthday parties; kitchen organization; cooking with children; keeping a home office; how to deal with a never-ending stream of toys; traveling with children; how to balance it all, and much, much more.
