Looking back through August’s post, Chris and I both agree–it was a great month. We balanced hard work and even got away for a night. Plus, starting a new project is always exciting. Before we jump into a new month with a fresh list of projects, we’ve rounded up all of August’s right here for you with links back the original posts. Some, even I forgot about.
Had a huge yard sale where we sold almost everything from our living room:
The living room got a fresh coat of dark, dark paint. Mmmmm:
Chris went to great heights to install our new chandelier in the dining room:
Had a shrimp boil dinner party (and shared the recipe!):
Transitioned Greta’s crib into a toddler bed and lived to tell the tale:
Designed a living room for my first bachelor client–but I would totally love this living room for myself, too:
Found this great little red Virco chair for Greta at the thrift store
Chris and I got away for a night and packed in a lot of fun.
Spilled about dirty kitchens and editing photos on Truth Tuesday:
Introduced smaller, more affordable flats to the gallery:
Gushed over little kids’ rooms:
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.

Over the weekend Brooke (our social media manager) and I went to the Parade of Homes in the Raleigh area and it was so fun to get a feel of how other people in our new area are living and living large! The purpose of the parade is so that home builders and designers can […]
