16 Tips on how to design a home office that is kid friendly

As a mom that works from home and has worked from home since I became a momma, I know the struggle is real trying to juggle both. Some days are easier than others, but mom guilt is REAL even when you work from home. You want to do a really good job for your clients or employer, but you don’t want to ignore your kid or plop them in front of a screen (momma’s with young babies- you’re lucky if you can get three hours of work done a day).

Modern Farmhouse Christmas Decor

I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I’m already writing a blog post about Christmas decor. Every year this Christmas stuff comes out earlier and earlier. But, you know what? Every year I get more and more excited to get the house decorated for Christmas. Now that I’m a mamma, I love seeing the excitement of my little girl when we get our Christmas tree and decorate the house. She loves to help me with everything (she’s almost three years old, so everything feels brand new to her) and I love including her in the process. So I thought, I may as well get this blog post out now so that you (and I) could plan our decor for this season!

Clients say what

Sara was not only resourceful but she really has a terrific creative eye. We used her for our home, inside and out. Her ideas were completely original but also classic. She’s awesome and we highly recommend her.

Sara was wonderful to work with! She helped me figure out what my style was and worked with my budget. I had her redesign all my bedrooms, a bathroom and the foyer. She went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with the outcome. Unlike other designers, she didn't push for expensive items where she can receive higher commissions. I highly recommend Sara and would use her services again in a heartbeat!

My experience with Sara was outstanding. I wasn't going to hire a designer because I thought I could do it on my own. I bought a few different pieces, and it didn't go together. I realized I'd be spending more by buying the wrong pieces that didn't fit an overarching theme, and I turned to Sara for guidance. She's an incredibly talented designer, but more importantly, she's patient AND she's an amazing adviser. She taught me the words to describe the vision I had in my mind. She turned it into a reality. I highly encourage anyone wandering down the aisles, picking a hodge podge of items, to speak with Sara. She's more than a designer, she's a trusted adviser.

"I had been following Sara’s blog for nearly 2 years and after witnessing how she transformed her home from a plain, lifeless, and ordinary home to an extraordinary home with a crisp, clean, and bright feeling, there was no question that we had to use Sara’s services in creating a home we have always dreamed of! Her ability to pair colors, select fabric, trims, furniture, fixtures, art, and provide furniture layouts, all while staying within budget has made the designing process so easy and extremely fun! In addition to her skills, Sara is highly responsive, provides plenty of options, and is truly in tune with our needs. Thank you Sara!!!”

Sara was a fantastic designer who helped us with our oversized living room and dining room. We waited until everything was purchased and installed before writing our review. I have to say that she picked absolutely perfect furniture for our needs (which included having 2 toddlers and 2 cats). The dining table she picked was wonderful, too. It’s the perfect size, look, and function for a relatively small space. I can’t tell you how many hours we spent looking for a dining table before turning to Sara. Then, the first one she suggested was the ONE. Thank you for your help, Sara. You provided great value for us.

“I had so much fun working with Sara Ho on my home office! She is so talented. Sara quickly understood my needs and style, and took it to another level. She was constantly sending me tips and new ideas. She did a great job working with my existing constraints, and flexible enough to adapt the ideas to meet my local retail’s offer. I am well beyond satisfied. In fact I’ve just launched a second project with Sara and I’m excited to work with her again."

"Sara is a great listener and isn’t afraid to hear ‘no.’ She worked with us to find a layout and pieces for our room and made thoughtful suggestions based on our needs. She was mindful of not only how we would use our living room, but how much we wanted to spend on it. She even included our pet rabbit in her design."

Sara really helped us when we remodeled our home. It’s such an overwhelming experience and she was instrumental in helping us pick tile and paint colors. My husband and I were so grateful for her input!
