After sharing a before look of our home gym, the cat is out of the bag! We’re updating our home gym and I just know you are not ready for what’s coming. Chris and I have had this space up our sleeves for months and our excitement is becoming too much to contain!
As far as equipment for the gym, we’re keeping our favorite rower and treadmill, adding in some weights, a bench, and some mats. The shining star of the show will be the checkered floor, hands down! We’ve done it before, we’re doing it in the laundry room, and honestly I just can’t stay away from this look. I think it will be nice to repeat the black and white flooring from one utility space to another so the house feels cohesive. For lighting, I found the prettiest ceiling fan and a complimentary semi-flush mount which will go right in the stair landing. As for paint, we’re keeping it simple with white walls, but I do have a little plan to elevate the mirrors already in place.
Here’s a first look at the selections!
Floor Tile (taking inspo from our last dining room)
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.

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 […]
