Homeschooling Meets Design

Hi there,

Here is a perfect blend of homeschooling and design. If you read the Pioneer Woman’s blog, this will be old news to you. Ree, a mom who home-schools, and lives on a ranch in Oklahoma, needed help with a room makeover for her two teenage daughters. Bob and Courtney Novogratz, a design couple from New York, came to the rescue. I would have never put them together but I love what they came up with.

Here are two pictures before: An attic room with orange carpet.

And after:

Wow, suspending beds. I Like the blend of rustic and color. I would have never picked striped carpet tile, but they work really well here.

I like the tassel blankets.

Look at this long desk, a homeschoolers dream. Lots of space for all their crafts, too.

Knitting and sowing made hip.

What do you think? I’m hoping if I blog long enough maybe I will get a Novogratz makeover someday….

Have a lovely day!

    Yes, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to call ourselves “pioneers” while living in a designer home, on a huge ranch, with all the modern necessities of life at our fingertips?


    1. I see your point. I wonder if the Native American community also feels like that about what we call the “original pioneers”. 🙂 To them pioneers traveling in fancy wagons, with fancy guns, building state of the art houses must have been seen as high tech as well. I guess it depends on your perspective on life. Having grown up in a city myself I can totally understand Ree calling her blog Pioneer Woman. Anyway, as a blogger I respect her work, and wish nothing but the best for her.
