My Sister’s Art-Filled, Eclectic Home

There are five girls in my family and we each live in wildly different homes. Somehow we all grew up under the same roof in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and now, decades later, we’re spread out across the country (and globe) injecting our own style into our own homes. Last year, while I was visiting my sister, Victoria, in Pittsburgh, I fell in love with her eclectic, art-filled home and today, I’m so excited to share a little house tour with you. Victoria is the only one of the sisters that still lives in our beloved hometown of Pittsburgh. She lives on the first floor of a historic house in Wilkinsburg, in the East End and has for the past three years with her sassy cats, Doug and Manny. The home was built in 1920 and oozes all the charm you could possibly want. Two big fireplaces. Lots of built-ins. Original stained glass…

A Night In (On the deck!)

This special series is sponsored by Article. Once May hit and we were pretty sure the snow was over (#idaholife), we started working on pulling our furnishings out from storage and setting our deck up for the season. In addition to the planter boxes we recently built, we also added two of Article’s Sala white lounge chairs and their tall Grid basket in white (those leather handles–c’mon!) for easy-access blanket and pillow storage. From May until October, we live out here. We host parties and have dinner and lounge and play–it’s our main hub. In the spirit of A Night In, our ongoing quarterly series where we invite a handful of our favorite bloggers to share their home after the sun goes down (linked at the end of the post!), we wanted to share a few pictures from the first of many nights out this season. As the sun is just setting, Chris lights the fire and our…

Our New Modern Chesterfield Black Leather Sofa

When we were still living in our last home, we purchased an off-white mid-century style sofa that has now lived in our reading room since we moved here. It fit nicely size-wise, but as the room and our style has evolved, it fit less and less in with the vision. We’ve been on the look out for a new one for awhile now and one evening, I was actually on our own blog, checking the archives and I saw a banner ad that Article (formerly Bryght) was having a sale. They have a lot of great options for really reasonable prices. I was immediately drawn to their Alcott Oxford Black Sofa, but we already had a black leather chair in the room (at the time–now it’s in our bedroom) so I wasn’t sure if Chris would be up for switching everything around. So I came up with a plan. I’d show…
