Our girls are anxious and excited to start their new schools here in our new hometown. Our youngest, Polly, will start Pre-k (her first time going to school!) And Faye will go to second starting next week. Our oldest has a few more weeks until school starts. We have only heard incredible things about fall in North Carolina and I can already tell it’s going to be magic. We’ve been buying all the school supplies and crossing things off our list, and let me tell you, we (me and the girls) got sucked into a world of adorable backpacks.
We love Walker Family Goods backpacks!
Is there nothing better than the feeling of a new backpack holding all those school supplies? We rounded up only the best for you, and there’s something in here for everybody (I’ve got my eyes set on that fossil backpack and that price tag is drawing me in).
What are you most excited about with school starting back up again? I’m going to miss our summer days but I really thrive during the school-year routine. Anyways, shop away and enjoy those final summer days!

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 […]
