It’s Casual Friday, so we can talk about toilets for a minute–right?! As soon as I mentioned to Chris that I wanted to share a little bit about the bidet attachment that’s on our toilet (this one is similar!)–he insisted on sharing his thoughts. I’m basically in competition with a bidet for the number one spot in his heart, guys. Here he goes:
Bidet, mate! Let’s put anuthuh poop in the potty! Ok, that was a bit much, but we have to figure out some way of talking about topics that nobody wants to talk about, and bidets I think are one of those things.
If people didn’t feel so weird talking about bathroom habits, everyone would own a bidet because they’d be a daily topic of conversation. We have never owned one, and any time someone talked about it we listened politely and disregarded what was said because, like, why would I need that? But there was one in our new home, in the master bathroom, and guess what? You actually need it! If you happen to have an outlet in reach of your toilet you can even opt for one like ours with a seat warmer, heated water, front and back sprayer, and a blow dryer! Not even kidding it’s one of the most enjoyable, 1st world comforts you can do for yourself, and it’ll make you loud and proud about in conversations you may historically be shy on. Check out all of these great options we’ve pulled together, and take the plunge! (shameless potty humor, my goodness) Your hind quarters will thank you.
Other Fun Things this Week.
• Speaking of bathrooms, I’m in LOVE with the vibe of this one by Lisa Staton Design:
• Did you hear Chip and Jo are opening a hotel?! They are taking over the world in a very beautiful way.
• Growing up, my mom always had a red winter coat. Not the same one either. Every couple years she’d get a new coat and it was always red. And now here I am, a mom of three, ordered a new winter coat and girls, it’s green again! I’m not looking forward to cold weather, but I’ve learned it’s so much more bearable when you have a good, stylish, warm coat. (I got this one in a medium).
• This is where Greta’s letter on her bed is from. It was the most beautiful gift she cherishes it!
Hope you all have the best weekend! We are headed to Jackson this afternoon to cross a couple things off our fall bucket list!
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.
