We can’t thank you enough for all your love on the reveal of our girls’ room yesterday. It was so much work, but it was wonderful to see so many of you enjoyed following along and the end result as much as we loved sharing it. Today, we wanted to share all the details about how we updated the wall in our living room! Finally!
Our long time readers know we have this wall in our living room that has stumped us for 3 years now. I wrote that we were done ignoring it and cropping it out of pictures way back in March and then it took a few (okay, several) more months to actually decide what to do and do it. It has odd angles surrounding it, and is too close to the seating area to have something substantial like a credenza on it–we tried.But! It’s the perfect candidate for an accent wall complete with a wall treatment. We explored everything from attaching laminate flooring, to wallpapering, but found the biggest bang for our buck to be adding faux shiplap. The project can be done in a weekend for under $75–including paint!

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.

One of our biggest projects this year is building out an upstairs laundry room using borrowed space from the playroom. Chris and I have been drawing up and re-drawing floor plans and elevations that I can’t wait to share. The biggest hurdle we’re designing around is this great, big window which is a blessing and […]
