After Polly’s room reveal we got a lot of questions about where the houndstooth thrifted chair that was in her room! No fear! It’s in Greta’s room now and doesn’t it looks so great in there? After we sold the second bed in her room, there’s a lot more room for a reading chair and dresser and maybe some built-ins around the window. And yes, finally paint the trim in her room.
Other fun things this week:
• Have you watched Derek Delgaudio’s In & of Itself on Hulu (or DO TELL IF YOU’VE SEEN THE SHOW LIVE!) Chris and I watched it this week together and shed a few tears. It was incredible!
• Don’t mind me. Just swooning over the new Kara Mann Collection at CB2. Every. PIECE!
• It me.
• In the great lighting shake up, where we moved the light that was in the music room to our bathroom and the light that was in our bathroom to the laundry room and the light that was in the laundry room to Polly’s room…the music room was the only space left without a light. I went on deep dive on Amazon and found some amazing budget friendly options.

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.
