Exciting News!

I'm so pleased to announce that I'll be writing two articles a month for the girls over at Project Nursery. Project Nursery is all about showing real parents how to take charge of their own design and decorating projects. The site offers readers a rich photo gallery of design projects submitted by parents and designers, hip finds for the family home, do-it-yourself projects, clever party ideas, expert design tips and fabulous weekly giveaways. Please check out the rest of the design team.

This is my Project Nursery bio and a few of my favorite things - I hope you like them.

Design Expert: Johanna Lindsay
I’m a New York-based photographer who lives in the West Village with my husband, three children and a Westie. I started my career as the Associate Producer for The Second City Toronto where I originally hail from. Eleven years ago, I moved to New York City to work in public relations for various Broadway shows before becoming a full-time mother to Liam, Graham and Maeve. I have traveled around the globe and have three special countries that I hold close to my heart: France, India and Vietnam. My design aesthetic pulls from my love of travel and these places. I have collected furniture, art and rugs from my various adventures and showcase them proudly throughout my home. The style of my apartment can be summed up as traditional with a mix of South East Asia.
As a mother of three living in a New York City apartment, I’m always trying to find ways to maximize space and keep things organized. I like clean lines, no clutter and enjoy eating cake.

Johanna Loves…

1. I adore everything that Serena and Lily has to offer. I especially love that the bedding for a little girl’s room is exotic, happy and fun. 2. Core Fusion is the hardest workout I have ever done, and I can’t get enough. Using your own body weight as resistance, small hand weights and a ton of planks, this workout has my thighs screaming for more. 3. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a nighttime serum designed to help repair your skin as you sleep—the best part is it smells like lavender. Bliss! 4. The easy breezy clothes from Calypso St. Barth are beautifully made with unique designs. I have so many outfits that never seem to get old. 5. As a photographer, the Canon EOS 7D is hands down my favorite. I love the quality and the sharp images this camera produces. 6. Chic and timeless. I’ve been wearing these lightweight Ray-Ban Aviators for years and won’t stop. 7. These Paumes lifestyle design books from Japan are fantastic. I especially love the Children’s Rooms series. The pictures in these books are eye candy. 8. If I weren’t living in NYC, I would be living in Paris. I love everything about this city—the architecture, the food, the wine, the outdoor markets. I could go on.
