Part 19: There were Indian people that lived that lived above us and I have nothing against anyone so please do not think that but the smell of the curry when you don’t like it is really bad lol. This was a bit of an issue for me but we lived in that apartment for a year. My son was two at this time so my husband who worked at the tire shop in Long Island would drop/pick him up at daycare (also in LI) since it was on his way to work. I would attend classes and commute on the bus/ train to get to the city. The funny thing about living in Queens is if you are not close to the subway and even when you are the commute can be longer than from LI. When we lived in Lynbrook I could get to the city in 35 min but from Queens it was a solid hour. For anyone thinking of Queens make sure you research your commute which clearly I did not. We went by the area and how safe it was. After a year of living in that apartment we moved up the block to a two bedroom apartment on the first floor. This was a much better situation. Now at some point during this time I thought about switching my major from fashion to patternmaking. Also thought about just getting an AAS degree and then getting a job since that was pretty much all you needed to get an assistant design position. This would have been taking the easy way out. I heard that patternmakers made good money and design positions where very demanding. I mentioned this to my older half brother and he of course flipped out. For anyone who knows me personally you know that I literally HATE that I have to give my brother credit for this because he is such a #knowitall and I literally want him to be wrong BUT he totally gets the credit for this one. He said to me what are you talking about. You wanted to be a #designer not a patternmaker! And you need a Bachelor's degree because if you ever decide to change careers later in life you can do so much more having BFA degree than an AAS. Again I literally hate that he was right but he was! My daughter is currently thinking about colleges and I just keep telling her you don’t have to know what you want to be exactly now and in the end of the day the name of the college does not matter. #cont

Tracy’s existing coffee table had a solid wood top and a great black metal base but it needed some freshening up. Check out how @palletpieces transformed the top into a beautifully distressed farmhouse chic piece. Now the base really pops! Swipe 👉🏼 for close up and before!

Part 17: It is very different when your parents are raised in the religion than when they become one as an adult. My mom was the extreme when it came to following the bible and there was no changing her point of view at all! There was only one way and your point of view didn’t matter or was wrong. Back to the money so my brother went through his money pretty quick. I bought a car, paid car insurance for the year, lent my brother money and still put money in the bank. Here’s a funny story about that money. Over the years my father has given my half brother and sister a thousand here or there nothing huge but pretty much only ever bought me a $1000 chandelier when we bought Willow House. When I asked him recently why he doesn’t give me money joking around he proceeded to say you already got $10,000 I divorced your mom. I said you mean the money mommy gave me? He said yeah lol. Now it makes sense. My father who would have never given me that kind of money on his own was holding that against me all this time. It’s so crazy what people keep bottled up for years without saying anything. Remember this because as we go on with the stories that grudge is going to make more sense. Around this same time (1992) I was accepted to the Fashion Institute of Technology. Whoop whoop!! Huge huge moment in that proving people wrong process. I was over the moon happy. I was also voted “most likely to succeed” in the paper year book by the other #teenmoms which helped boost my confidence. Now not only did I get accepted to FIT but of course I qualified for every financial aid package possible since I was married and on paper Maria wasn’t making that much money. Back then it was a Pell grant and Tap (Tuition Assistance Program) both of which did NOT have to be paid back. Now here’s were it gets good. I also had daycare covered by Nassau County as long as I was in college at a two year college (not four). We’ll come back to how I finagled that one. So I basically went to FIT for free. Now I also found out if you are a mom attending classes they have a program were FIT would pay a small amount per month for the amount of credits you were taking. This may have been an extra... #cont

When we first met Tracy she expressed to us the importance of a gallery wall above her staircase - she wanted a design that included both decor and personal touches. We continued the white paint up the stairwell where we gave Tracy the gallery wall she had been dreaming of! Complete with new and existing decor plus her own precious photographs. SWIPE 👉🏼 for the before shot and some close ups!

For Tracy’s dining area we painted the blue walls and ceiling a creamy white to freshen and brighten up the space. This also draws your eye upwards to the gorgeous wood beams which now stand out against the white ceiling. We added simple table decor with shelving and decor flanking her existing mirror. The result is a bright and inviting space for her family to eat daily meals. SWIPE 👉🏼 for the before and stay tuned for more of Tracy’s great room transformation!

When we first entered Tracy’s home we were blown away by how unique and charming her great room was. From the cedar shingles to the exposed brick to the vaulted ceilings with gorgeous wood beams, her space just exuded character. While she loved all of these attributes and wanted them to remain in their original condition, she felt the space lacked warmth and an inviting feel. Check out how we transformed her living area into a bright and cozy space that her and her husband love spending time in! SWIPE 👉🏼 for the before and stay tuned for more of Tracy’s great room transformation!

Train Ride Vibes from #cocochanel because “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different” 💕 I used to be afraid to fail but as I got older I realized that’s the only way to learn and grow. Try new things, maybe you’ll fail, take a deep breath and then just get back up and try something else. Eventually you’ll find your way. Life is a journey. There is not one way to be or do things. No one has all the answers at least that’s my thought 💭 on it. #sidehustle time💪🏼🙌🏼🎉Repost from @poshonline • .

Part 13: I was focused on finishing school as quick as possible and stayed clear of all negativety during this time. I was also determined to prove the world wrong. That even though I had a baby I could still achieve everything in life I had planned. I spent time around positive people who could care less what I had done or was doing. So we spent a lot of time with Maria's family lol #joke #notreally The thing about some of my family is they want to hear about what you have done or are doing. Then they'll ask you about whatever you said every time you see them after. Not all of them but enough do. Maria's family lives in the moment. They are perfectly happy playing #dominos and watching #novellas . Unless there was a person cheating on someone or other drama they just worry about themselves. Some of his older sisters I'm sure had their opinions but since they spoke spanish and mine is limited I couldn't understand what they were saying anyway lol. I was closest with my husband's two sisters, one was younger than him and the other older. They were both super supportive and helpful with my son who was 2 years younger than the older sisters son. Now the only person I wished I had spent more time with during this time was my Nana. She was super funny and always joking around. When I was 12 my mom decided she'd had enough and was leaving my dad. She took $10,000 out of their bank account and told her family and friends what she was doing. Next thing I knew my dad went to work, we packed up what we were taking and loaded up everyones cars. We went to stay at my Nana and Grandpas house that first year until my mom could get on her feet and get us an apartment. Ny Nana was a complete goof ball who was always joking around, laughing at herself and could care less what anyone thought of her. Qualities she passed to my mom and my mom passed to me. Sometimes it takes me a minute to get things but eventually I get there lol. My grandfather was the opposite of Nana. He was more stern and very cathlic. He even thought about becoming a priest back in the day. That year at my grandparents was great! I remember eating cheeze-its with Nana (her favorite) and watching tv while...

Have a safe and happy Halloween! 🎃👻

Part 5: To continue the story about my uncle I have to say he was truly my first mentor and continues to be to this day. He is not one to ever say something can’t be done. I would show him a picture of an idea of something he never saw before and he would never say it’s not possible. Instead he would think about it and come up with a plan to make it happen. I learned from him there is more that one way to do things but you have to make a decision and trust that you made the right one. If you don’t you will over analyze and and never move forward. In the end there are a few things I’d say we would have done differently in the #remodel. One we definitely regret not doing radiant heat in our large master bathroom under the tile floor. Two we did not need the air jet jacuzzi tub that maybe was used 5 times if that in the past 13 years. My daughter says she doesn’t want to sit in dirty water 😏 Third we regret not going down deeper in the basement when they excavated. We had the option of having the ceiling taller than the 7ft it is currently but stupidly chose not to. That would have cost maybe a couple thousand and now that my husband wants to put a gym down there he could really use the height for the ceiling. You live and you learn. Other than that we really got our dream house. A few years after the remodel my uncles back got really bad and he had to have surgery. He is since “retired” technically but I know he is bored. My plan is to bring him in on this #interior_design journey because he truly is a rock star and will be an awesome consultant for jobs and my business. I’m working on making that happen. His eyes light up when he is talking ideas and possibilities. The other day we were at his best friends house who is the owner of CO-OP 69 and Artisan House. His friend is doing a huge remodel that I’m helping design and my uncle is GCing. The kitchen will be opened up but there is a vaulted ceiling. My uncle had ideas from a construction point of view that I didn’t see because my brain doesn’t work that way. He explained structurally what could be done so I understood. Again he is an awesome mentor. ❤️So yesterday I asked how I got married at 16 yrs old. #orc

📸 @jf.justfemme For those of you who do not know me😊my name is Nicole DelaCruz. I am a wife (of Jose aka Maria 👮🏽‍♂️) and mother of two (Quimes & Bella) first before all things. My story is a little unique because I was married at 16 🙊 and then had my son Quimes 5 days later. My son is now 27, lives in NYC and works in Advertising. Prior to that he was a Division 1 XC and track runner all 4 years at Marist College, never redshirting, which I learned is very rare. My daughter Bella is currently in 11th grade, plays soccer, runs track and tumbles like a rockstar. She is in the process of figuring out which major, college and sport she wants to focus on. Big decisions coming up for her. ❤️Back to me for the past 23 yrs I have designed Children’s Clothes. I received my BFA in Fashion Design with a minor in Patternmaking from FIT. I only applied there so thank goodness that dream worked out since I had no back up plan. In 1998 we bought Willow House and started remodeling. That’s when I discovered HGTV and the show Divine Design with Candice Olson. She showed her process of designing on the show and I fell in love with Interior Design. See I never actually knew that was a career option. I grew up in a family that is the definition of DIYers. Most of my family was in construction or owned property. My mother wallpapered, sewed and made every craft you could think of. My father had his own replacement windows, roofing and siding business (he had his niche). I grew up around construction sites and up on the roof. My creative outlet was sewing and fashion. About 6 years into my career designing clothes I realized this would not be a long term career for me. So in 2001 I started attending NCC to get an AAS in Interior Design. I received my degree in 2004 and in 2005 we took in a huge remodeling project of Willow House. With the help of my step father, brother-in-law and uncles I designed our new home. We went back 10 ft and added an entire 2nd floor. The house went from a 1975 sq ft ranch to a 3975 sq ft 2 story home (including the basement) Comment if you want me to continue because Instagram has a limit to how much I can type here. #nooneisreadingthis #iqdesigngrp

These @artisticframe chairs were worth the wait! The fabric we chose was on backorder for a few months but our clients are happy they were so patient. We can’t wait for the final install in this living room.
