When you take your favorites from your closet and think about incorporating similar principles into your décor, you’ve probably got a winning combination.
When Heidi Englebert had her first child, Avery, in 2001, she decided to take a one-year leave of absence from her job as a business analyst. That one-year break turned into a 10-year stint at home as Englebert raised Avery and her second daughter, Anna. As her children got older, Englebert grew restless and decided to go back to work full-time. “I was determined to get a job for my own personal well-being,” she says. “I wasn’t satisfied being at home anymore, and I was ready for that next step in my life.”
