We wanted to take a moment and address some comments and suggestions we received last week on a sponsored post. I’m afraid we may have given the impression that we don’t care about your opinions by not answering questions within the comment section of that post. Please know this isn’t the case – I simply felt/feel it would be unprofessional on my part to talk about contracts and clients on a post I was paid to write. I hope you can understand that, and know that we really do value your feedback.
Based on your comments, as well as similar feelings we’ve had recently, we’ve made the decision to no longer accept sponsorships from all non-project related sponsors. While we stand by our past sponsored content and genuinely love the products and services, we understand the concerns expressed and want to thank you for giving us the push we needed to make a decision that has been on our minds.
Going forward, we will let our plans and projects guide the partnerships we choose. Two examples would be Ace Hardware and Wagner. These companies help us check things off our to-do list, and allow us complete control over design and execution. We value these relationships and are excited to continue working with them and others as we DIY our way through improving our home. And we hope you’ll stick with us through the process.
Again, we sincerely want to thank you for the “tough love.” We all need it every once in awhile, and we feel blessed to have readers who are so invested and connected to us and our home. We’re excited to return to the focus we once had, and are happy to address any questions or thoughts in the comments below.
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 […]
