Last Saturday we shared a bunch of Small Business and discounts to encourage you to support them during this time of economic uncertainty. And today, I wanted to shed light on another kind of small business–content creators. Chris Loves Julia employs and supports 8 different families (we’re a small business!) and I know so many other bloggers, instagrammers, influencers, youtubers–we’ll call them all content creators–employ photographers, graphic designers, editors, accountants, crafters, stylists, etc. to put content out on a consistent basis.
During this pandemic, we’re all digesting more web content than ever, but like many other jobs, content creators are having to shift gears. The creators who make the content you love are able to do so through the generous support of sponsors and affiliate revenue from the products you love and buy with your hard-earned money. Some sponsorships have been put on hold. Some have dissolved. Understandably, we’re all a little more cautious with our spending, so some have seen affiliate marketing decrease. The good news is that there are a lot of FREE ways to support your favorite content creators (and keep them making the content you love!). Consider supporting the online creators you love most by:
We have some great content planned in the coming weeks and appreciate all of your active support! This is a community and we’re so glad you’re here!
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.

In case you missed the announcement in our Love Letter, the wallpaper is officially installed in the laundry room, and I could not be ANY MORE IN LOVE! My ultimate goal for the laundry room was to create a space that is fresh, clean, bright, and a little utilitarian (the straight-laid tile floors definitely bring that). With […]
