Designing a first home can be a challenge. Designing a first home with a newly arrived baby in tow? Now, there’s a doozy. With a lot of “firsts” in her life and an admirable desire to keep her sanity intact, new mother and homeowner Sara Shepherd decided to enlist the help of west elm’s Design Crew to take some of the headache out of her home design process. “Being a new mom, I had my hands full,” Sara says, “and west elm made the process really easy for us.” After making an appointment online, a stylist from west elm came over to talk about Sara’s vision for the space and guide her through each step of the way. “We wanted it to be comfortable and light and airy,” Sara notes. Together, Sara and the Design Crew team from west elm Portland—stylist Shelby Towell and installer Michelle Gonzales—were able to accomplish just that. By using streamlined Mid-Century-style designs and incorporating a subdued palette of neutrals with pops of navy blue, the team was able to create a beautiful (and calming!) oasis, perfect for a brand new family.
