Ever since we finished our kitchen a couple months ago, I have been surprised how many of you have requested to see inside all of the cabinets! It made me laugh at first, because I didn’t realize that was a thing. But then I noticed our friends and family poking around when they would come over–it’s definitely a thing. While I wish you could all just come over and do the same (mostly so you wouldn’t have to listen to my voice), I did the next best thing and filmed this little cabinet tour yesterday afternoon for all of you. (Apologies ahead of time for how loud my camera is trying to focus throughout this.)
A few notable sources: Chris’s spice jars are from Paper Mart. The wooden spice spoons are from Amazon. The Kitchenaid pull-out stand was a hand-me down from my parents who had two (and no Kitchenaid) but Rev-a-shelf makes one.
While we tried to map everything out before we even bought our cabinets, it has definitely taken a couple months of shifting to get everything in a place that makes sense. It’s amazing how much more space we have even while eliminating our upper cabinets. We have so many empty drawers and none of the drawers are filled all the way. I still think we’ll tweak a few more things over time, and a few more drawers need some dividers, but I hope you enjoyed this anyway! Or it at least satisfied some curiosities. ;) To see the kitchen before and afters, along with all of the sources, check out this post. We’re finally getting our tree up this weekend, follow along on Instagram (@chrislovesjulia) for sneak peeks!
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.

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 […]
