Happy New Year! When I think about 2014, I get overwhelmed. It was a good year and a hard year, too. We couldn’t feel more grateful to be on this end of it. I plan on diving back into another VERY FULL year of renovating and blogging–ohhhh I can’t wait to share with you what is on deck for 2015–next week, but I feel I would be doing this little blog a disservice if I didn’t recap at least some of 2014s’ projects.
We did an insane amount of work this year. Big projects, like tearing up all of our flooring. Adding a fence! But, I thought it would be best (and the most approachable) to just to highlight each month’s most popular most. It didn’t always equate to the largest project of the month, which is a great lesson for me to learn and keep in mind.
APR: Our little Faye arrived (the highlight of our whole year!)
SEP: Paint on a Globe!
OCT: It was a tie between Greta’s Room Reveal and! Tips For Making Your Best Engineer Prints Look Their Best
NOV: The Entry is Done!
DEC: A DIY Baby Gate
See you all Monday!
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.

Our bedroom changed a lot when we painted it and added trim, but not everyone can make big changes to their rooms. I wanted to put together a quick reference tool for when you’re in a busy season of life and want an easy update. Or perhaps your landlord isn’t keen on paint rollers! Here […]
