Growing up, my mom would always put a fresh set of tights in our Easter baskets, along with some candy–chocolate for my sisters and fruity candy for me since I never liked chocolate. All these years later and it still feels special and that’s what I hope our holidays and traditions feel like to our girls. We try to keep candy to a minimum (easier said than done), and just get a few simple, adorable things to put in their baskets, along with a new Easter dress. We’ll be celebrating our first Easter in this house and I can’t help but think back on last year’s Easter dinner in our dining room. This year we have a lovely new kitchen to host in, and we’re planning on a pot luck with my sisters and some friends here. We’ll miss many, but also be with so many we love and that feels so special to us.

We always do new flip flops for my kiddos. Growing up, I remember frequently getting a new jump rope in my basket because it got a lot of use!
We got taco, hat, … at Christmas based on your gift guides. We’ve had a lot of fun with it. Math phd dad who is usually so good at board games is seriously bad at this game – it’s hilarious
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.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
