When our first dog, a large Great Pyrenees named Charly, passed away last year, we received a beautiful (and crazy accurate!) watercolor portrait of her from talented artist, Jamie Clark. After we adopted Willow, we added her portrait to our collection. I actually CRIED when I opened it and saw the paintings side by side, because if you read Willow’s adoption story (read that here), you know that we feel like she was a gift for our family from Charly.
Isn’t it just the most perfect spot for them? I love seeing the frames peeking around the corner from the dining room/living room/kitchen.
Lastly, we’ve had a few people questioning why they don’t see Willow as much in photos–it’s simple really–she’s usually running sprints in the backyard and hanging out in the snow (her favorite). She’s a lot more active than Charly ever was, and a little camera shy, too. But the energy is a welcomed one in our home. She’s amazing with our girls and all of their friends. She saved our family and does so over again, every day.
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.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
