We’re VERY close to being finished with our exterior and sharing a bunch of before and after images, but despite being in-progress, we wanted to keep with our tradition of filming an exterior and interior house tour in the fall. (Interior house tour forth-coming!) We were about a week too late filming, because we kept waiting and waiting to see if the last 5% was going to get finished–it didn’t. So you’ll see our yard just passed its prime. But we love her, just the same. Every evening, Chris and I walk around the house to check on progress and see that there aren’t any issues anywhere else, so today we’re taking you along.
Spoiler: It doesn’t look like this anymore.
You’ll see a lot of exterior shots and elements you’ve never seen before, a lot of in-progress and imperfects and hopefully, a lot of wow moments, too! These are the videos we LOVE to look back on and see where we’ve been. See the first exterior tour here. And the first tour of this house here!
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.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
