Earlier this week, we got an update that our Stoffer Home Cabinetry will be delivered next Wednesday! (The 27th). Our contractor told us that the install will be about a week and then we will be templating for countertops right after. Even though our appliances are backordered, having cabinetry and a countertop and LIGHTS and a sink feels like complete luxury right now. We can barely wait. That also meant that this week, we had the fun task of picking out our countertops. We knew we wanted soapstone on the island and marble on the perimeter (more on the kitchen plans here), but it’s such a different experience seeing everything in person. The feel. The undertones. Stone shopping is an absolute delight.
In the end, I knew exactly when we saw our stones that they were the one. We went with a very classic Carrara for the perimeter and behind the stove and a vein-y black soapstone for the island. I love the mix of materials. There are tiny green veins in the marble that will tie in perfectly to the island cabinetry and warm taupe-y veins in the perimeter. These tiny little exciting details keep us going through an extended renovation.
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 […]
