I do know, Kermit. I do know. This is Kermit’s reassuring way of letting Miss Piggy know he loves her, without saying it, because it is hard for him to. He is that one person for her. Who are you that one person to? Although I am blessed enough to know I have more than one person who loves me, I am smart enough to understand–it is okay if some people don’t. Because not everyone will. Sometimes I forget that it’s impossible to please everyone and it is exhausting to be someone you’re not, and then Chris leans over and wraps his arms around me and reminds me he is my “one person”and nothing else matters at that point.
Thanks Kermit, for inspiring this month’s chalkboard drawing and for the excellent reminder of the impact of just one person’s love. When deciding what to draw each month, I always end up on what I’m connecting with at the moment. What do I want to look at for the month? What do I want to hang on our walls? And then I just go with it.
This month’s drawing, as well as past months, is now available as a limited edition print in our Etsy shop.
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.

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 […]
