Big shout-out, first and foremost, to Patty-Patty (my sis) for giving me the 30 second tutorial on how to make tabs for your blog. And I know–well, I think–I am one of the last people to figure it out, but just in case I am not the very last and you have been Googling for days “how to make tabs for you blog” with zero satisfactory, know that I’ve been there and now I am coming to your rescue.
These are the basics. I am not about to pay someone to design my blog (which I hear is pretty common), so if you are a DIYer like me, you can do this. And if you’re not, you can do this and call yourself a DIYer. Win. Win. (Win…for all you fellow Office fans)
1.)Make sure you are logged in and then click on “New Post.”
2.)You will see your typical blank post and in the upper left hand corner, you’ll see that the “Posting” tab is selected. Under it, there are three options: “New post” (which will be highlighted) “Edit Post” and “Edit Pages.” Click on “Edit Pages.”
3.) Each “New Page” is a tab. Ta-da!! You can title them whatever you want and adding content is exactly like writing a post. Easy, huh?! One thing that is different about tabs, is that they are automatically set to not allow comments. If you would like to have a particular tab’s comments enabled, just scroll down to where it says “Post Options” right above the orange “Publish Post” button. Under “Reader Comments” select “allow.”
4.) If you click on the “Design” tab at the top (in the same row as the “Posting” tab you were just on), you can edit your pages, by clicking the blue “edit” in the tan box marked “pages.” You can change the order, or select ones that you would rather not show. For instance, I chose not to display “Home” (that one is the only tab that automatically shows up) because clicking on the blog header brings you to the home page anyway.
5.) If you want to customize the font and color, just go into “Template Designer” —-> Advanced—-> Tabs Text/Tabs background.
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 […]
