Yesterday, we woke up and got in a little tiff about how I don’t eat enough because I just wanted cereal for breakfast. We made our grocery list and did our shopping, which ended up taking a lot longer than we anticipated thanks to our cashier who was “just so tired.” (She was literally leaning on the counter while checking us out.) On our way out, Greta got her picture taken with Santa. While Greta took her morning nap, we cleaned up and got ready for our re-do family pictures. Thanks to Brandon and Steph and a game of copycat, we got some of Greta smiling. Chris took Greta Christmas shopping for a couple hours and I was alone. Bored at first, and then I just ended up sorting through Greta’s clothes and hanging some pictures in her room. We dropped off our video camera that we sold (we’re upgrading) to a guy in army fatigues at Ikea. Returned Chris’s brand new phone to the verizon store and got a cheaper, better one at Best Buy…he’s in love again. We stopped by the house to unload Greta and the stuff that had been accumulated throughout the day. Chris was feeding her dinner and I was going to go pickup Greta’s picture with Santa so that she could post it to her blog.

don’t feel like they are on fire anymore. Just another thing to be grateful for.
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 […]
