Our cabinet line with Semihandmade was supposed to debut in the press and major magazines with photos of the completed cabin kitchen, that never saw completion. It’s added another complex layer of sadness, even guilt (not that I had any control or could have predicted the fire) that I’m still trying to process. While there is currently no completed kitchen to feature the cabinet line we worked so hard on with Semihandmade, I’m so grateful that there are other projects popping up! Angela Rose shared this adorable and functional window seat she made with an IKEA Besta unit and our Semihandmade doors in Cove! I love how it turned out and she shared the simple DIY on her instagram right here!
You can order samples of our cabinet fronts right here!–they work with Ikea Besta, Godmorgon and all of the kitchen cabinets!

Yesterday we started a quick makeover of our friends (the Pugmires!) bedroom. It was filled with hand-me-downs and never got ANY attention. We’ll be sharing a few DIYs and the afters next week, but also a lot of progress along the way on Instagram Stories! Hope you’ll follow along @chrislovesjulia.
Ps. This is Brooke! Our nanny turned intern turned assistant! She’s been with us for two years now and is one of my favorite people. We have a fun clj team intro video hitting our YouTube channel later today, so make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss it!
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 […]
