We believe we should all love where we live.

We’re a couple of homebodies, working to uncover the home our home wants to be. And we’re so happy to have you here.

Befores, afters, mood boards, plans, failures, wins. We’ve done a lot of projects, and they’re all here. 

We have a long-standing relationship with DIY, and love rolling our sleeves up and making it happen. 

Even when you don’t want to rip down a wall, you can make that space in your home better. Right now.

We are going to start rolling out our 2019 gift guides next week. We have more than ever and just like every year, I nod when I’m done in complete approval. We pride ourselves on fresh ideas for every price point when it comes to gifting and this year won’t be any different. I truly can’t wait to share them with you!

UPDATE: CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE 2019 GIFT GUIDE RIGHT HERE!

In the meantime, even though we are always coming up with new gift ideas for you, the guides of Christmas past are NOT outdated. In face, they are filled with the best gifts we’ve given to others! Yes, I shop from our guides pretty much EVERY time I need to buy a gift. (See all the gift guides linked in our menu bar for future reference!) So because I know so many of you are already shopping for the season, I thought I’d whet your appetite today with some of our best gift guides from the past few years.

    Is there a way to find the actual links to these items? They’re all numbered- but I can’t click numbers or the picture…. Are they just not loading on my phone? I would love to know how to find some of these! Awesome gift ideas!!!
