The Modern Family Command Center
Integrating the Family Command Center into our home’s existing style was so important to me. If a solution isn’t beautiful or joy-inducing, it’s less likely the system will stick. So we adapted a Pinterest classic to work for our family’s aesthetic!

My Favorite Blue & Green Paint Colors - Anita Yokota
I have always and forever been a blue tones kinda girl. They’re soft and welcoming, while having presence and impact! Touches of blue and green are threaded throughout our house, especially in the kitchen and bedroom, where we want the most out of these harmonious shades.

This modern fairy tale has taken its time to tell, especially since we took on this project over the holidays. It’s been a lot of fun, but I’m SO glad we’re finally done.

Kitchen Spotlight: BOXI by Semihandmade - Anita Yokota
I wanted an EASY solution that gave me more of the functionality I craved, and the beauty to help support the rest of my design. So getting to work with BOXI by Semihandmade on our new kitchen cabinets was the answer to all of our problems!
Teaching Self-Care to Girls
I have three daughters at very different stages of self-development, and it’s important to meet them where they are so they can master the tools early and rely on them as they get older.

You have to think about storage options, organization, and space planning, but most importantly, you want it to feel like home for your teenager. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. With the right prep and communication with your teen, you can create a room that’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional!

Preparing for a Kitchen Remodel
You guys. We are finally doing it. We are renovating the kitchen, and after more than 10 years in this house, I am SO excited to see this transformation! It feels so nice to be doing my own kitchen, after the last few kitchen projects I’ve recently finished. I really loved designing this modern, moody kitchen, and it feels good to get to dream up something for our family’s home!

Your Way For An Easy Intention Tray - Anita Yokota
If you’ve ever pulled into your driveway after a long day only to suddenly realize you’re there but you don’t recall the drive home, then you know the power of our brains to dip into autopilot mode. The exact name is highway hypnosis. It’s when our brains carry out tasks automatically without fully engaging the whole brain. To make sure I don’t hit a home hypnosis, I’ve created intention trays in several areas of my home to help me stay calm and decrease recurring bothersome anxious thoughts.

Making the Switch to Open Shelving - Anita Yokota
Making the switch to open shelving is more than a design choice: it’s a lifestyle change. And I absolutely love our new lifestyle 10 million times more than I thought I would! Of course, loving is easy when the shelves are this beautiful. We worked with Shelfology to make this transformation happen, and boy am I impressed!
