Monday we shared lots of photos (and feelings!) about our new home and now that we are officially in–we unloaded the last box at around 11:30pm last night–we wanted to share the very first home tour in our new house! Jordan shot this beautiful tour before all the boxes came in and due to popular request, Chris and I are going to be doing another one for next week where we’ll walk you through each room and talk about what it is, maybe some plans–there will be a ton of boxes, it’s gonna be great.
These tours have become our favorite thing to have and look back on to measure our progress–hope you enjoy this first one and many more to come!
A few notes on our home: It’s on 3.5 acres (our two neighbors are on 10 and 4.5 so it definitely feels like country living) but we are less than 10 minutes from every convenience we could think of. Which is kind of opposite of our last house where we were very close to our neighbors but about 30 minutes from the hardware store–haha. It has 9-10 foot ceilings throughout (besides the living room and entry where they are vaulted which is a dream come true for us tall people. It’s just over 5000 square feet (our last home was 3400), but the rooms are larger and it has a large space off of the entry that we’ll be using as our office so it all feels very manageable and like the perfect size. We’ll share more of our initial ideas next week–so much more to come!
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.
