Design Mom Book + Bay Area Party

Today I’m so excited to announce my sister, Design Mom’s, new book! How to Live with Kids: A Room-By-Room Guide. It is genius! Stop whatever you are doing and get one. It basically goes through the whole house and has clever ideas and tips on how to have a house that’s great for kids but doesn’t compromise on living. The book officially comes out April 7th, but you can click here to pre-order it now. I’ve always looked up to Gabby and she is always the first person I ask for parenting advice because I love how she and Ben parent their kids. When you go to their house you’ll find a beautiful and practical house that always looks great with with happy kids running around climbing trees or making movies. They are really deliberate and thoughtful about how they raise their kids and live their lives. When you go to their house you don’t want to leave. For me there couldn’t be a more perfect person to write this book.

One more thing, We’re THROWING A PARTY!! We’re hosting a book party in honor of Gabrielle and Design Mom at DIESEL, A Bookstore in Oakland on April 7 from 6pm – 7:30pm and everyone’s invited! There will be treats, gifts, a book signing, and I will be doing a Q&A with Gabby. You can get all the details here! PLEASE COME!

    This totally sounds like a book I need to get my hands on. The kids and I just started reorganizing their literature. I’d love for my house to feel well designed and child friendly at the same time.

    what a wonderful idea!!! I don’t think I could make it to Oakland from Sac area on a Tuesday, but if I could I’d be there for sure! I can’t wait to get my hands on her book. You all are a beautiful creative family! If you need a Latin sister I’d totally volunteer! Haha!

    White couches + white walls + white floors = Kids? Does. Not. Compute.
