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.

This post is sponsored by the best thing to happen to my online shopping, The Key Rewards.

It’s always cool to see which home brands are connected under the same umbrella and it’s even cooler when they get together for a reward program. A bunch of my favorites–West Elm, Pottery Barn (kids, teen, baby–all of them!) Williams-Sonoma, Mark & Graham are all under the Williams-Sonoma umbrella and they all now offer a reward program called The Key Rewards. It’s 100% free to join, so it’s a no-brainer. If you buy anything from these online stores, you earn 3% back in rewards–these certificate dollars you can use across the brands.

So, if Chris adds more knives to his knife collection (he just got these new Wusthof Epicure knives from Williams-Sonoma, and he can’t stop raving about how comfortable they are to use)…

..or I pick up a new planter from West Elm for the front porch (I totally did)…

…or we hang new black-out curtains in Polly’s room from Pottery Barn Kids (you can read more about that here)

or if we add another matching concrete coffee table from West Elm to our deck (do we get another one!? does the space need two?!)

…we get 3% back in our Key Rewards bank. I hear a lot of designers talking about their design discounts or design dollars, but I love that this program is for anyone. It’s completely free–there’s no application or credit card associated with it. And I already always shop these brands. Since I know a lot of you do, too (I always share sales from West Elm, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, etc. on Premier Day), I thought this would be a great new program to pass along!

    I know it’s a bit out of the design realm, but I’d love to see a post from Chris about what knives to use for which applications, and what “starter” knives he recommends all home cooks should have.

  2. Katy says:

    Nice! Just signed up, thanks for the heads up. I love that you tell us when these guys have sales or deals like this. I find myself always ignoring big sale announcements from companies because I’m bombarded by advertisements constantly. But I always appreciate when you get on stories or on here and let us know. Otherwise I would miss out!

      I second what Katy said! Your style is wonderful, I find myself checking insta or your blog prior to a holiday weekend for sale deets. Thank you!

There was a 10-year-period where everyone (including me) was doing black or almost-black rooms or walls. These days, we want something moody and romantic, but we want warmth back in our lives. We want the “grown-up” version of that look. If you are craving a rich, moody paint color that’s a warm, inviting neutral, then […]
