2. The In-Betweener. One Sunday morning, Chris and I set out to get our faces glowing with homemade pore strips using this recipe and tutorial. The verdict: It smelled ba-ad. Like cheese puffs. Which don’t necessarily smell bad if they are cheese puffs, but we don’t really like our cleansers–or faces–smelling like that. After setting for about fifteen minutes on our faces, we peeled it off. I can’t say our pores were completely clear, but our faces were baby soft. It was cheap and funny, made funnier because we couldn’t move our faces to laugh with the hard shell spread over our cheeks. Worth a try.
3. The It-Really-Works! You may have seen pictures of green onion stubs in water floating around Pinterest. Since we buy green onions almost every week, I thought I’d give a go at regrowing the ones we already sliced down. By the next week, the green part had grown above the glass rim again ready to re-use. My only mistake, make sure you tell everyone in the house why there are green onions in water on your windowsill for a week, or they might throw them out. …meh. You’ll have to take my word on this one–green onion stubs in water really do grow back.

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 […]
