This week, our living room got a fresh coat of paint!! We wanted to do a full reveal today, but by the time everything got cleaned up, the sun went down, so I just have this tiny peak for you today and we’ll share a lot more photos next week!! The color is Pigeon by […]

Table, Chairs, Pen Cup, Candle, Table Lamp, Floor Lamp, Faux Maple Tree If you haven’t heard, lead times on furniture can be months out right now. It’s nuts and a little frustrating but it’s just the world we’re living in. All of our team members (including us!) are shopping to furnish their homes and trying […]
Last week Chris and I walked through the house and came up with a lighting plan for the entire house. I have a feeling that once we have the lighting optimized, we’re going to wonder how we’ve made it this long living in the dark. It’s strange because we have plenty of windows in our […]
This is a guest post by Andrea Ahedo, our Visual Media Producer/Head Photographer, who is sharing her experience with selling a house, her previous home in Idaho, for the first time. First Time Homeowners We bought our very first house in October 2019. Built in 1960, it was a four-bedroom ranch-style home with creaky wooden […]
This post is sponsored by Walmart With fall around the corner, and hosting on our mind, we are looking for every excuse to celebrate the season–a fall table can be just that. I mentioned last week in Casual Friday that I’ve been feeling a little homesick lately. Homesick in my own home, and longing for […]
September 15th felt like the perfect day to put cascading pumpkins on the front porch. I was warned by many that pumpkins won’t last long on your doorstep in North Carolina. It’s a stark contrast to them lasting MONTHS in Idaho, probably because it’s like a refrigerator on your porch. So, well, those are all faux and […]
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

This month, I quietly celebrated 11 years of blogging. As part of that, last week, we watched the very first home tour video I ever did for this blog. It was of our first basement apartment that we were renting. The one we brought Greta home to and where I started the blog. Andi filmed […]
Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
