Happy Halloween from the Candyland Crew!
We do not mess around when it comes to our family Halloween costumes. Over the years, we’ve dressed as everything from dolls and monsters to Peter Pan and E.T. characters! It’s one of my favorite traditions, and we’ll do it for as long as the girls are into it. Luckily, Greta (who’s 12) is still very on board, so we had a family meeting to brainstorm what we should be this year! This year we got everything from bricks (Polly) to Hunger Games (Greta—who read all the books this year!) to Minecraft people (Faye). We kept brainstorming and came up with something everyone is really excited about individually. The Original Candyland characters.
The best part about these family costumes is that they’re all pieced together with things we buy and things we already have. They end up being a hodgepodge of whatever else we can find, which is what makes it so fun and magical.
Here’s a closer look at this year’s Candyland Halloween costumes and how you can “get the look.”
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 […]
