I had never heard of them before, but when he and I were out to dinner and saw them on the menu, […]
And we are off to Hawaii! Chris and I are headed to Maui with our good friends, and I’m so looking forward to lounging around on the beach, hitting the spa, and hopefully spotting some whales. As I’ve been preparing for this trip, I’ve had to get out of the cold mindset and envision warmth, […]
When it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts, Chris and I keep it pretty simple. We look forward to the nice dinner reservation and meaningful gift exchange, but we mostly keep it simple and sprinkle some extra love towards the girls. Regardless, I look forward to Valentine’s Day because I find myself craving a little Holiday […]
This post and project are sponsored by Lowe’s Home Improvement. Welcome to the attic! This is where we have been storing Holiday decor, bins of family keepsakes, lampshades without lamps, and all our dirty little secrets… In all honesty, this has been a clutter crutch in our home since moving in, and it has been desperate […]
We have been hard at work for the last weekend, decluttering and purging our attic space! It was at the top of our 2023 project list because it was becoming an overwhelming goliath that we just had to tackle. And as overwhelming as it was, it felt soooo good to get in there and finally […]
I hate to toot my own horn, but I’m a bit of a cookware connoisseur. Okay, I tend to be a connoisseur of most cooking supplies and tools, but today it’s all about cookware. Despite sounding too cliche, I get a lot of questions about what my “actual” favorite cookware is… and the honest answer […]
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 […]
Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
