Look closely in my sunglasses. You will see Chris taking a picture. So even though this isn’t a particularly flattering picture (talk-smile, gotta love it) I had to post it because it was our only picture semi-together.
Chris was actually born in Las Vegas and he lived there until he was 5. We went and visited his old home. He pointed out where all the family friends lived. He knew exactly where he chipped his tooth and where the alley was that they used to cut through. I was in awe at his memory and the huge cactus that was in the neighbor’s yard. I had never seen a real cactus!
|“Hi, first house!”|
Greta was a champ the entire trip, well, until it was bedtime. Everywhere we went, she got a lot of attention. “Oh, this must be the cutest baby in Vegas!” Lots of “OOoos” and “ahhhs” and stares like, “I can’t believe you brought a baby to Las Vegas!” She was a great prop when Chris auditioned for Minute-to-Win-it. (awesome, right!?) He was in a room with 5 other people also audtioning and Greta definitely helped keep the attention on him; Greta and his stellar personality.

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 […]
