For Chrissy and Matt Droessler, the husband and wife founders of online framing shop Framed & Matted, designing a family-friendly home has been a journey—one well worth every stumble and decorating lesson along the way! Now, as a family of four, the couple has happily succumbed to the idea of living in the moment rather than chasing perfection, and the result is a beautifully easygoing space that everyone can luxuriate in with pleasure. By combining thoughtful storage solutions and budget-friendly furnishings with their sophisticated taste for art, Chrissy and Matt have come up with a nursery (and home!) that their family can enjoy for years to come. Chrissy’s tips and the tour are below!

Where did your interest in art come from? How have you honed your eye for design over the years?
My parents appreciated art and they made it an important part of our home. However, I did not begin to really appreciate art until college when I majored in Art History. I always liked being surrounded by art, but it was not until I learned more about how to look at it that I really started appreciating it.
