I love a grazing party. Good conversation, good music, maybe some games, and a spread of food I can return to again and again whenever I need a little bite. Dairy-free party appetizers are harder to come by, because of course we all love cheese. But this little number is bursting with flavor, comes together […]

There’s something undeniably magical about taking the time to make your presents feel as unique and intentional on the outside as they are on the inside, especially during the holiday season. I remember years when I didn’t put much thought into holiday gift wrapping. I’d just grab whatever paper was on hand and scribble a […]
Whenever we post a room photo with a rug in it, the frequently asked question is, “What size rug is that?” I get it! It’s helpful to have a frame of reference to get started, but the chances are pretty slim that the dimensions of a room in our house are going to be the […]
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.

The first week of October for our family is basically like the gunshot that signals the start of a marathon. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, school activities, family visiting, traveling to visit family, kids out of school, work deadlines. The holiday season, with all its festive charm, often brings a less welcome companion – stress. So how […]
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 […]
The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
