The inside, ugh, it. is. a. MESS! For the sake of keeping it real, I just opened the doors and snapped a picture. So, it might not always be this disastrous in there–but I’ve also seen it worse, especially when we forget to slide those locks over and Greta has her way with the closet.
We don’t use the changing table anymore and the two drawers don’t hold much, so we have decided to sell this piece of furniture and come up with a closet solution that makes more sense for Greta’s needs. We’d love for it to have multiple shorter rods, lots of storage boxes or baskets to hold anything from stuffed animals to shoes and socks. Also some concealed storage/drawers would be a great bonus for things like pants and underwear. I also have this dream of having everything OFF of the floor. And while I am dreaming….
Yes please. The funny thing is, I made a wish list in my mind of what I would love Greta’s closet to have and then I found the above photo here and angels started singing. ANGELS! Yes, that closet would be great. The one below (found here) also seems like a pretty good solution, although the drawer and the very bottom feels…weird? Like it might easily scratch the floor.
But don’t get me wrong, something like that (minus that bottom drawer, or is it a step stool?) would be welcomed as well. Bottom line, just when we thought we were wrapping up Greta’s room, we are rolling up our sleeves once again. And I am off the pick up some paint swatches for the interior of her closet. :) Anyone else spending time in their closets lately? I cleaned out my half yesterday and got rid of 73 items. I have about 15 left. It feels so good!!
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.

Over the weekend Brooke (our social media manager) and I went to the Parade of Homes in the Raleigh area and it was so fun to get a feel of how other people in our new area are living and living large! The purpose of the parade is so that home builders and designers can […]
