    In your stories there was a round wood table you posted, but I forgot to click on it and now the story is gone :( do you remember where it was from?

  2. Brooke says:

    In your stories for President’s Day Sales you showed an awesome rug from Rug USA- an 8X10 was $261, was like a beige-ish persian/vintage style. I swore I screenshot it, but know I can’t find it! Any chance you remember this gem? Thank you so much!

  3. Abby says:

    Do you have a link for that backsplash?!

  4. Karmen says:

    This is totally off subject. Have you ever done a teen room mood board. One key item my daughter is wanting is a wall for photos. Any ideas?

  5. Sunny says:

    Where did you get those hanging pots??? They look like terra cotta… are they?

  6. Margaret says:

    Looks like Smeg products are excluded from the Williams Sonoma sale. :(

  7. Brooke says:

    Hi :) Thanks for always sharing the sales! Do you have an affiliate link for the hanging planters from your kitchen in your last house? I haven’t ever been able to find any the same or similar. Thanks!

  8. Lisa says:

    Hello! Where did you find the lovely leather strap hanging planters? Thank you!

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 […]
