Hi friends! If you've just arrived from visiting Corinna's boho bungalow at A Designer At Home for the Blogger Stylin' Home Tours, welcome! Isn't her place the coolest?! If you don't know what I'm talking about, let me fill you in really quick: I'm participating in a blog hop 'work and play' series this week with 29 fellow bloggers! Our talented, (and organized!!!), host is our sweet friend and fellow style mutt, Lindsay, over at The White Buffalo Styling Co., (you may remember her home when we featured her as a Friday Reader Design!). If this is your first time here we are so happy you've come by! My name is Chelsea and my incredible sister-in-law, Cate, and I started StyleMutt Home a year and a half ago after refinishing furniture, (and our homes), for years! Just like a beloved mixed-breed pup, "style mutt" is an affectionate nickname for those of us who enjoy an eclectic mix and appreciate various decor styles. You pickin' up what I'm throwin' down? Good! Let's get this tour started!
When Lindsay gave us the theme of Work & Play I knew our dining room would be just the space for this tour. This is the room in our home where kids crafts and article writing happen simultaneously. Where the lighting is just right for me to take stock photos and the kids can work on their handwriting right behind me. Where there is a large enough surface space to pull out finger paint, construction paper, glue, stickers and go to town - because what's a dining table other than a massive surface space for crafts?! Here, let me show you the space in it's early morning 'sleeping' state - before it's busy with little bodies who have places to go and things to do! (We have three little ones 16 months apart from 1st to last - boy/girl twins and then a wonderful surprise boy).
