We believe we should all love where we live.

We’re a couple of homebodies, working to uncover the home our home wants to be. And we’re so happy to have you here.

Befores, afters, mood boards, plans, failures, wins. We’ve done a lot of projects, and they’re all here. 

We have a long-standing relationship with DIY, and love rolling our sleeves up and making it happen. 

Even when you don’t want to rip down a wall, you can make that space in your home better. Right now.

Happy Fall! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I’m so grateful we live in a place where we get to enjoy all the seasons, even if Winter comes on pretty fast and sticks around for awhile, right now we are knee de. But I’ve learned that more than anything, you can create the magic of any season, even if the weather isn’t cooperating. We sat down as a family over the weekend and we made a collaborative list of our favorite things to do in the fall and made it our official bucket list. It really allows us to make the most of the season because we never stop and think What should we do?! When we have an opportunity, we can jump on any one of these things!

This year we want to:

Make (Grain Free) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
Eat tons of Candy Corn + Honey Roasted Peanuts
Stay a Weekend in Jackson Hole
Go to the Pumpkin Patch & Buy the Ugliest Pumpkin
Make a Fall Playlist on Spotify
Decorate the front Porch for Halloween
Take Annual Halloween Costume Photo
Host a Murder Mystery Dinner
Carve Pumpkins with Friends
Find & Press 20 Different Leaves
Watch The Addams Family
Make Pumpkin Chili
Go on a Fall Hike
Go Trick or Treating
Drink a lot of Apple Cider
Decorate Halloween Cookies

I also made a blank one for you to print and fill in, if you’d like!

    Love this post, Julia! Thanks for sharing so many Fall goodies! Just wondering, I saw you post about the Ibotta app on your IG stories this past week and I never got around to using your “Swipe Up” to register and get the $20 bonus… :( is that still a valid offer by chance?

    Bake 3 ingredient pumpkin muffins. Visit a pumpkin patch. Costume made (Frida Kahlo). Buy a wreath at Goodwill and rework it into something wonderful and then decorate condo shelf and front door. Watch a scary movie. Celebrate at a costume party. Add burnt orange pillows to living room. Collect acorn tops to make needle felted acorns. Decorate mantle with needle felted pumpkins and acorns I made.
    Figure that’s enough about fall and pack and fly to Maui to celebrate non fall and my birthday.

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 […]
