My name is Tanya. I have 4 kids, married to my best friend for 12 years. I am a homebody at heart. A quiet, cozy evening in with my fam is always my first choice. I am obsessed with interior design (i eat, sleep and breathe it), plants, vintage rugs and art.
I live on the East Coast of the United States, right outside of NYC. I live with my hubby and 4 kids (2 boys, 2 girls).
That is a tough question! My vintage rugs are probably my most favorite things in my home. I love the warmth and personality they bring to a room.
Also, a custom made sign our of wedding song I had made for our anniversary one year. I love being reminded of that day on a daily basis. When you are busy parenting 4 kids, its nice to just glance over and be reminded of the romance of it all.
My son, Beckett's, bed. It's where we all end up at the end of the day. Literally all 6 of us. Under the covers, cozy reading and sharing stories from the day. It's one of my favorite spots.
Our leather chairs in our living room. We've had them from back when we lived in NYC. After 9/11, we lost almost everything in our apartment - these came with us. They are the spot where I drink my coffee everyday or read a book in the evening. They are comfortable and hold quiet meaning/reminder of that day for us.
White walls. White walls let art speak for itself. Nothing gets lost on white. I love the fluidity they allow. You are not stuck with a specific color scheme. Art, accessories can change as your mood sees fit or even as the seasons change. Fresh green Plants are a must. Plants give a space such warmth. They bring a room to life. And they are such great natural air filters - it's a win-win.
Yay - it's Friday!!
There are a couple. I wish i was artistic. I would love to be able to just sit and paint. Also, I wish i was musical. I would love to be able to write music and play the guitar.
Be brave. Believe in yourself. Take chances. Have fun!!!
Mumford and Sons, U2, Coldplay, Dave Matthews
Kate Moss, Jackie Kennedy, Twiggy, Audrey Hepburn....to name a few ;)
Bubble bath with a little bubbly, exercise and for me, hands down, interior decorating! (which is why things change so much in my own home)
At this point, raising my 4 kids to be kind and giving people is all I can hope for....so maybe - the power to see into the future...to make sure they will all be okay!?
Dogs. no question.
It is full of artistic people. It's a small town full of great energy. It is a real community. It's a walkable town - we walk everywhere- I love that small town feel.
In the summer, we spend our days lazily at the pool at the tennis club. A Date night stand by is the Huntley Tavern. Nights out with friends are usually cocktail parties at our homes. BBQs on the back deck surrounded by friends and all of our kids.
For restaurant, We love Abril Cocina. Cafe is Able Baker. And favorite local bar, the St James Gate.
