All right, so Jules is completely exhausted and asked me to give y’all an update on the sitch over here (that means “situation”).
Things were just going a little too smoothly, which I think everyone agrees with. We were supposed to close on our house in Utah last Monday – like, almost two weeks ago. The people buying the house were selling some stocks to pay for the house and were confident the money would come in time. Welp, they pulled the trigger on the sale a little late and now we’re stuck waiting for the funds to close on our new house. The good news is we learned yesterday that the money will for sure be wired directly from their brokerage firm to our title company on Tuesday; the title company is going to wire the money to us same day, and we’ll be closing Tuesday afternoon.
Needless to say, we’ve been going a little stir-crazy and Jules has been suffering from some anxiety. We’re so grateful to have family in town that is kind enough to open their homes to us–including Charly. That said, we just really want to get into our new home and settled back into our routine, including getting crackin’ on the projects. We go up to the house and look around at least once a day, and we get giddy just talking about everything we want to do.
We apologize for the lack of posts lately. We’ll probably be taking the next couple days off as well–until we close. Blogging is a favorite hobby of ours, and has turned into this awesome way to meet new people and share what’s happening with us. So as much as we try to stick to the posting schedule (and have been missing it!), sometimes the blog falls prey to higher priorities. That said, once we’re in the new house you can expect a bunch of content, comin’ atcha! And, fingers crossed, I’ll be back in the kitchen soon, whippin’ up some rockin’ food.
Peace out, internet friends. Have a great weekend.
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.

Over the weekend Brooke (our social media manager) and I went to the Parade of Homes in the Raleigh area and it was so fun to get a feel of how other people in our new area are living and living large! The purpose of the parade is so that home builders and designers can […]
