a message from Kristin
Welcome to B@H! I am so happy you are here and hope you find inspiration from these pages! I just wanted to introduce myself and welcome you to peruse, comment, or ask questions.
I am a designer & stylist that loves luxury interiors. I share my take on them here in these pages with a more family friendly approach. I believe our homes are our sanctuaries. They should ooze comfort. I also believe that everyone deserves a home that is full of style and reflective of their own unique personality.
I’ve worked with clients on their interiors in the past and I am excited to delve back into designing for others soon. We are working behind the scenes here to unveil a new boutique design service that will roll out with our relocation to Connecticut in 2017. Designing spaces is my true passion and I am always honored when someone entrusts me with their home.
Here on B@H, I share my passions. I love the art of making a home for my family. I cover the topics of interiors, our home renovation, entertaining, DIY ideas, my style tips and tricks, holiday and seasonal projects, and travel.
I’ve been married to the love of my life, Dave, for 13 years and have been blessed with two beautiful boys. We also have the sweetest little Maltese puppy named Zoey and she pops up in our stories from time to time. We live in Northern Illinois for the moment (more on that soon!) and when we aren’t working on our house or busy with our boys we love to explore the outdoors, get creative in the kitchen, and hunt our favorite local shops for vintage pieces.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again!

There are several things I envisioned for my life as my 20-something self. NONE OF THEM included getting married a few years later, buying my childhood home and moving back to the Midwest, having kids, or a dog in a pink sweater Now, I can’t imagine it any other way. I’m glad I trusted the path He planned and not my own .
