I’m sorry I’ve been a little absent on the blog this week. We’ve been busy trying to wrap up our kitchen for a big Thanksgiving shoot next week and I’ve been mostly sharing on Instagram. I saved the whole thing in my highlights if you missed it! Then I got bit by some sort of spider (it’s bad) and Chris’s grandpa passed (it was expected, but we’re also hosting family) and this week kind of got away from me.
But I wanted to check in because a few weeks ago we shared a mood board for the direction of our bedroom and I ordered a couple things (okay, basically everything but the bed) and as of yesterday it all arrived. But as of a couple weeks ago, the direction of our bedroom changed pretty drastically when we decided to swap the direction the bed was facing and add french doors and a balcony. As excited as I was–am–about that, I was a little bummed that the pieces we picked and ordered for our bedroom might not work as well.
On the bright side, they still might. And I guess even if they don’t, the pieces we ordered are classic and can work in a variety of rooms and applications. We just unboxed the dresser yesterday and it was heart eyes at first site. Truly, I can barely contain my excitement over it and I’m crossing my fingers we can make it work in our bedroom after the big changes. Even Chris said, “Well! That’s beautiful!” Dressers are one of those things that always look a little awkward to me, but this one is so good. In person, the wood grain kind of peeks through the black and the brass hardware is chic and unexpected!
The best news is that the dresser AND rug we have here in our room are a part of Wayfair’s big 48 hour August Clearance Event happening this weekend, along with a lot of other great pieces across all of their sister companies too– AllModern, Birch Lane, and Joss & Main. They’re calling it their black friday. Our dresser is 20% off!! Sharing a few more favorites below!
This rug we used in the Fullmer’s kitchen (it comes in a lot of sizes) is over 50% off! Just $213 for an 8×10!
And speaking of bedrooms, snatch up this duvet insert for 67% off–under $40 for a king (normally $119)!! It’s a great one, too.
Everything from dining furniture to outdoor furniture (and covers!) are on sale for this weekend only! START HERE. I’m taking advantage and casually shopping for a bed for Faye, and this velvet one is too good.
Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!
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.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
