This week has been a whirlwind of excitement surrounding our Polly rug launch with Loloi! We’re so proud of these rugs, and it makes our hearts so happy to see you unrolling them in your homes already! This is just one of the incredibly rewarding parts of the job–designing and collaborating with creatives, and seeing you join in the celebration with us.
It’s an odd problem to have, photographing and sharing our stunning rugs in a home that has rooms taped off in plastic, and dusty surfaces. We have had to be VERY creative. The juxtaposition of it has been laughable at times, but also sort of beautiful. I’m reminding myself that these moments of contractors coming in and out of our home are going to be a just a memory some day, along with the bubble baths in the largest sea-shell tub. And although I look forward to the day that our bathroom and our home reflects our aesthetic and needs a bit more, I’ll never wish away these moments. These messy, beautiful moments are a part of us, and I’m grateful for every moment.
But seriously, how gorgeous is that window and view out of it?! Chris and I have been thinking a little bit about this bathroom (we’d love to renovate it next year) and ideally our vanities would face the window so we can always look out…and so our faces are no longer back lit. But I suppose bathroom plans are best saved for another day.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, I’m going to keep this short because we are getting ready for painting the bonus room tomorrow!! If you read yesterday’s post, you know we’re taking it a deep blue and I can barely wait. I’ll be sharing progress in my stories @chrislovesjulia. But before that, those thousands of nail holes aren’t going to fill themselves. :)
Hanna Andersson: Family Pajama Event up to 40% off! (our family has these ones!)
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.

Yesterday was the launch of our new Polly rug collection with Loloi! The support has been overwhelming and we’re so excited to finally share this labor of love with you all. The collection was inspired from a need in the market–something to mix and match with vintage rugs, or vintage-inspired rugs like our first collections […]
