Yes, that was an attempt at a 90s Cherry Poppin’ Daddies reference.
The colors are really close, so now we are looking into reupholstering them or selling them to help fund chairs that work better here. We’ll see where we end up there.
But, I guess that shows how much we really love this rug. It isn’t scratchy like some natural fiber rugs can be–it is heavily textured and feels like a little foot massage when you walk on it.
And the fringed edges are the icing on the jute cake.
Our new rug is just the first step in adding character and life back into this room. We have a new cover for our couch on its way (woohoo!) and we are currently deciding on pillows and lamps and other accents. Even artwork is being tested out (you can see the gray ghost and the newest addition to the Etsy shop in the left corner) for colors.
Hopefully I can put together a mood board soon so you can get a better idea of where we are headed in here. For now, any jute rug fans out there? We’re converted. The texture. The natural look mixed with other textures. Mmmm.
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.

Over the weekend Brooke (our social media manager) and I went to the Parade of Homes in the Raleigh area and it was so fun to get a feel of how other people in our new area are living and living large! The purpose of the parade is so that home builders and designers can […]
