“City living offers endless teachable moments for kids – you can raise truly global citizens”

Award winning TV producer and blogger, writing about the challenges and opportunities of bringing up a family in big cities from Brooklyn, NYC.

Patrice’s tips for home within and beyond four walls:

  • Location is everything: Even if the place is tiny, be in a neighbourhood you love so your happy place is all around you!
  • Small spaces need organisation: Make sure you keep it tidy so you don’t get stressed. Be ruthless in giving things away
  • Stimulate the senses: Use candles or incense – smell can trigger good feelings, making a small space seem bigger or more relaxing
  • Take control and make changes: Even if you rent, you can still make your space beautiful, personal and worthy of having guests.
