It was fun and challenging to think up and paint so many different landscapes in a brief amount of time. It took me almost a complete day to paint my last painting. Each tweak, I felt uneasy about. I wanted to be proud of each painting and after painting the last one over 4 times…I finally felt like I could be done and send them off to be there in time for the grand opening next week.
I couldn’t spend all that time in my studio without offering you something, too. So, to unwind my mind, I painted another abstract in my ikat-inspired series and just added it to our Etsy shop. It is the first horizontal one I have done like this.
It has lots of deep navy with turquoise, green, and creamy peach accents that almost makes it feel peacock-ish. As always the thick brushstrokes give it lots of texture. It was so rehabilitating to keep brushing on the rich paint colors while my mind decompressed. You can purchase this painting here.
Now that I feel like I am up for a breathe, what have you all been up to? Is it really almost August?!
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.

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 […]
