Us? Honestly? I think the last time we changed our air filters was a year ago. We had just finished the floors and there was a baby on the way shortly and that was a part of our we’re-going-to-do-everything-right check list. And, yeah, we haven’t since. It wasn’t until FilterEasy reached out to me wondering if we’d be interested in partnering for a post (this post, fyi) that I even remembered about that necessary nuisance. I paused before accepting the sponsorship because we aren’t exactly the poster blog for changing our air filters (I learned in the year we went without changing our filters, we should have changed them at least 4 times!), but then the more I explored the service, the more I realized we are exactly the people that FilterEasy was made for.
FilterEasy is a subscription air filter delivery service that ensures consistent clean air and easy breathing without the hassle associated with changing air filters. And boy, do I know that hassle. Oh we haven’t changed our filters in a year (what!?)? Let me run to the store. Get to store. Realize there are a bunch of different sizes. Run home again. Check size. Back to store. Back home. Two babes in tow.
FilterEasy offers an easy ordering process that you only have to do once: You enter how many filters you have in your home, the individual size of each, how often you want them changed, and the level of allergen protection. And that’s it. FilterEasy ships you the exact number of filters, in exactly the right sizes, just when you are supposed to change them, so you never have to remind yourself, and you always have the right ones on hand. The hard part is done. The filters are delivered right to your door!
Lest you think actually changing them is the hard part, do you know how long it takes to change the air filters in your house? About 13 seconds. Literally:
Most homeowners and renters forget to change their air filters (guilty!), but when they do, they notice how disgustingly dirty the old ones were. Guilty again. Ours were downright embarrassing:
As you saw in the quick video, we popped out the old and placed in the new in seconds.
It’s that time of year when we’re all thinking about spring cleaning and this would be the perfect jumping point. Changing your air filters on a consistent basis saves energy since clean air makes for efficient air flow, provides clean air to breath by removing allergens, pet dander, dust, and bacteria and lowers your carbon footprint and saves on energy costs.
This is something that every renter and homeowner needs to do at least every three months. We just gotta. (Did you know that not changing filters are the leading cause of expensive HVAC repairs?!) So why not use a subscription service that delivers it right to your door for cheaper than you could buy them at a home improvement store? No brainer! Here’s the best part:

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 […]
