I am Chrissy, wife to Jose, and we have 4 children who charm, delight + exhaust us: Robbie, Sofia, Leo + Camila.
Do I look super excited to be holding my coffee with my clean shiny house behind me? In real life I have food in my hair, cold coffee + exactly 1 million children clinging to me at all times. ;)
Family means everything to us, and I aim to be a good mom + wife, have some fun, and not lose my own self completely in motherhood. We are pretty big homebodies... you can usually find us yelling at our kids (jk) (no I'm not), wine glass in hand out in the yard, or grabbing a bite to eat in our foodie town of Durham, NC. I grew up here + I feel luckier than ever to still call Durham my hometown!
CMB was born out of my obsession with family focused home design and a desire to inspire others to create a home that is beautiful and refined, yet lived in with kids! Because moms and dads CAN have nice things… sophistication in a sippy cup friendly space is indeed possible. I am determined that families don’t have to feel like they live in a daycare within a sea of IKEA, decorated in primary colors (although IKEA certainly has it’s place in our home!).
I hope my blog leaves you feeling motivated to love your home and have it work FOR you, in whatever phase of life you are in.
