Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. Today is such a big day! We’re so excited to share that we collaborated with A Color Story (the amazing photo editing app by Emma & Elsie from A Beautiful Mess) to bring you a a filter pack perfect for interiors. In fact–we called it INTERIOR. A Color Story is free to download and my absolute favorite photo editing app, you can edit your photos (or even just parts of your photos within their tools. It’s a powerful free app. OUR filter pack, (I’ve been working on since NOVEMBER) with 17 filters designed by me is just $3.99! They are more subtle than a lot of presets you see floating around, but it was done intentionally to just really enhance your spaces and photos instead of making them unrecognizable. Also note: If you want to brighten your photo a little more before (or after) applying the filters you can in the tools!
Now I want to introduce you to a handful of the 17 filters that come in the pack! I named each one after an INTERIOR space. These before and afters are just applying the filter and nothing else. I love the enhancement!
This is the STUDIO filter (I don’t want to play favorites, but if I had to):
This is the LIVING filter:
This is the LOFT filter. Moody and warm:
This is the POWDER filter (It brightens and softens beautifully):
BUNK has a warm pink hue to it and is really fun to double up for even more effect. (Note: You can lessen the opacity of any filter by sliding the bar to the left after selecting and you can strengthen it by clicking the filter and adding it to a photo as many times as you want!):
GREAT makes me want to instantly be in whatever room its applied to instantly. It’s so inviting.
GUEST is actually another top 3 favorite of mine! It softens, warms, desaturates and adds a little bit of mood in one click!
DEN is a mood, am I right??!
FAMILY I have used SO many times already on my own photos. It’s so natural, but when you see the before and after, it makes an impactful difference.
Also, although we named them for INTERIOR spaces, don’t feel locked into using the BEDROOM for your bedroom photos. Or ENTRY for only entry photos. Below I used KITCHEN! :
There’s more filters to try in the pack! If you don’t already have A Color Story app, you can download it for free in the App store! And our INTERIOR pack is just $3.99!! Thank you so much for all of your support (they actually released it late last night and I’m already so overwhelmed with the reach). Can’t wait to see all your photos! Tag me and #acolorstoryINTERIOR (I’m following that hashtag now) and I’d love to repost and feature some favorite edits!
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.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
