Today is a very exciting day for us. I briefly mentioned back in this post about all the major finishes in the cabin, that we had been working on our own cabinet line with Semihandmade for over a year now. We were hoping to launch this fall, but we have decided to push it to a soft launch in December, showing at Las Vegas Market in January, with the full launch in February! What’s most exciting is we’ll be using the line in our very own cabin kitchen! I wanted to give you the first peek at the 3 door colors we’ll be launching with, where we drew our inspiration, and lastly, which one we’ll be using in our kitchen.
Over a year ago, I could see wood start creeping back into cabinetry, in a new, fresh way and the Semihandmade team was on board right away. These are not your mom’s honey oak cabinets, they are streamlined–
And not afraid to show a little grain—
Without all the arched or ornate molding or trim work–
I started gathering a lot of inspiration for colors and a light wood definitely rose to the surface, it’s been popping up everywhere!
But I also loved a good, modern, rich walnut and a gray-wash with wood grain coming through. These are the three we’ll be launching with!
I love every one. They have great undertones and construction (INCREDIBLY DURABLE!) and they are so versatile. You can use them in a bathroom, kitchen, mud room, closet, fauxdenza! If I zoom out a touch, you can see we brought all three up to our very much, in-progress, (can you even call this progress?) cabin kitchen to decide which we’ll be using.
The conclusion we came to is–we can’t go wrong. Every one could have worked. But! With our rich, 100+ year old wood island and the honed black countertops we’ll be doing, we decided to go with the lightest wood option. EEEee!!!
We’re really, so excited to be able to bring these doors to the masses. To get the high-end, custom wood look that’s starting to pop up everywhere right now for a fraction of the cost, is something we really believe in and are passionate about. We’re thrilled to be working with Semihandmade to make it happen. I am working on a full mood board to share with you this week, filled with black stainless appliances, our kitchen layout, the art I got for next to the fridge, the backsplash and more.
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.

We’re welcoming fall by lighting up the evenings with the glow of our fire pit. In Idaho, fire pits were more of a summer evening event. Fall was too cold to be out in the evening without being bundled with a coat and blanket. It’s magically different here, and the subtle crisp evenings are just […]
