We had such a great weekend over here. A solid mix of family time, extended family time (Holla, Marcums!), relaxing, an Ikea trip, Miss America (I thought for SURE Miss Oklahoma was going to win) and a few projects. Chris finished his work’s website that he has been working on for 4 months, which means we are back to regular work days, none of this rolling home at 2 am crap–which I am ecstatic about.
We also got some cleaning done (it’s not every day that almost the entire house is clean at the same time), so I took the opportunity to shoot another house tour. The last video house tour we did was back in April when we moved in (you can see that here), and yeesh (!) have things changed. Wow. I am so glad we did a video tour before we did anything–it is so interesting and exciting to look back and see where we started–and be glad we aren’t at that point anymore. I am sure I will look back on today’s video tour in the future and be grateful our home continued to evolve. Whether you have been following along the whole time, are just tuning in or just have trouble figuring out the layout of our house from only photos–today is your lucky day:
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.
