TPJ 104: 10 Design Tips For A Sophisticated Home

If you would like your home to look more beautiful and sophisticated, even on an inexpensive budget while you have little kids at home, then this episode is for you.   My background is in graphics, branding, and identity design. I love talking and thinking about all things design. Primarily from the functional perspective, but also from the aesthetics.    I believe deeply that the things we see around us influence our psychology, influence our behavior, influence our emotions, and they matter. They're tools that we can use to influence how we feel and behave, and how our children feel and behave as well.    You can certainly spend a lot of money on this, but you don't have to. Even when buying things on a budget (or using what you already have), there are things you can do in order to make your home feel more sophisticated, more to your taste, even when there are little children around.    In this episode I'm going to cover 10 common areas that can be addressed to help your home feel more sophisticated and beautiful.    [02:10] #1 - Toy storage [04:11] #2 - Kid's artwork [05:19] #3 - Family pictures [06:06] #4 - The entry way [07:23] #5 - Household items [08:27] #6 - Child specific items [09:21] #7 - Continuously declutter [10:09] #8 - Adult-like furniture [12:03] #9 - Future-proof furniture [13:06] #10 - Linens   If you enjoyed this episode and it inspired you in some way, I’d love to hear about your biggest takeaway.
