Our podcast is live! You can listen to it on a lot of different platforms linked below, but whichever you choose, it’s free and it will always be free. Each episode, Chris and I sit down with our good friend, Preston Pugmire (whom you’ve probably come to know through the blog through our white concrete countertops and other projects), and have conversations about DIY, home design and family.
There are three episodes available today.
Episode 00: The Welcome Podcast– It explains who we are, what we do and what you can expect from the podcast series. Make sure you listen to this quick 15 minute episode first, it sets the whole stage.
Episode 01: In Living Color Theory– A candid discussion about the best practices when choosing paint colors, why some colors work together and some don’t and I reveal for the first time a huge mistake I made behind the scenes.
Episode 02: Project Management > Anger Management– In this episode, we call our friends Kim and Scott Vargo from the blog Yellow Brick Home. Before you listen to this one, check up on their ridiculously good bedroom renovation. They reveal a lot of behind the scenes issues they’ve had and their biggest tip for getting through a tough renovation.

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 […]
