Polly’s wallpaper was installed over the last couple days and I’m so excited to share photos today, along with a few other favorites right now! I first fell for this paper just a couple months ago, and I knew it would be so perfect for her space. I shared a sneak peak of the wallpaper in Casual Friday a few weeks ago, but nothing can compare to a whole surround-wallpaper reveal.
Isn’t this the wallpaper of every child’s dreams? Just mine? Polly’s favorite part are the unicorns (shh…they’re actually horses, but I think I’m going to paint a gold horn on a few). This paper was installed at a half drop, so that the pattern feels more like a mural around the entire room instead of so repeated. But, every inch of this wallpaper is filled with playful illustrations, that I’ll never get tired of looking at, and to me that’s what makes it so timeless.
Almost everything else in her room came with us from our last home, with the exception of the lumbar pillow and new light fixture! I knew this crown light fixture would be perfect for her room the second I saw it online and now that it’s up it’s giving me major Where The Wild Things Are storybook vibes.
There’s still more we want to do in this room, but the wonderful thing about a wallpaper with a lot of interest is it pulls double duty as art. I decided to keep all the trim, doors, and windows white, and eventually get some really beautiful custom roman shades in maybe a light blue with trim. We’d also love to add a dresser, little chair (I think we’re finally ready to retire the rocker) and a rug…VERY VERY SOOOOON ;). I have a feeling that Polly’s going to be falling asleep while watching these storybook characters come alive and that just warms my heart.
Since I’ve got wallpaper on the mind and I’m looking for every excuse to use it in this house, I rounded up a bunch of wallpapers I’m loving right now. Bonus points if you can list out all the wallpapers you’ve seen us use before!

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 […]
