Yesterday we talked about falling in love with your home by creating rituals, and today we’re going to start putting some simple, meaningful rituals into practice. Practice, being the key word here, because no ritual was made overnight. It takes time to build your morning routine, your evening routine, your “weekend s’mores roasting” routine, but before you know it, you’re always stocked with marshmallows, and looking forward to the next backyard hangout.
Download the worksheet with this link right here, print it out, and get cozy while you put pen to paper. List out your favorite spots at home, rituals you currently have, and then at the bottom, list 3 rituals you’d like to have, and your action plan to implement one this week. Your rituals can be as big or small as you’d like, but make sure it’s something to make you feel happier at home. This is a love story between you and your home, and these moments might seem silly to some, but in reality, they are the the moments that build a stronger foundation to the relationship.
Here’s some routines and rituals in the archives to get your cogs turning!
A Helpful Reminder
Sometimes you might already have a daily routine but need to just enhance it. I do my makeup nearly every day because it really gives me a pep in my step and it’s something I enjoy. Making space for a vanity in our primary closet was the best thing I could have done for myself. I sat down in that comfy chair and caught up on Marco Polo messages while I did my makeup. Carving out that special me-time was the self-care I needed to start my day. So before you try to re-invent the wheel, maybe you can just make a small shift in a routine you already have.
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 […]
