Our niece is getting married at the beginning of September and we’re over the moon for her and the rest of the couples lining our calendar, prepping to tie the knot this summer/fall. It’s officially wedding season and it’s one of the most wonderful times of the year if you ask me. This year, makes 8 years since Chris and I were married and first of all, what?! Secondly, in those 8 years, we’ve experimented with more things home-related than probably the average person, in large part due to blogging about our home 7 of those 8 years. Which started the conversation: If we could make our wedding registry today, what would it include?
We came up with 15 things that would absolutely be on our registry today. Some are things we now own and love, some we have researched and are on our own wish lists and all come extremely highly rated and made to last so you can look back on your anniversaries and say “Oh yeah, we got that for our wedding from ____.” Which is kind of the point, right? Behold, what would be on our wedding registry (8 years later):
I think it’s also important to be mindful of price range when making a registry. Include things under $20-around $200 (although some people will even go above that). Is there anything you would add to the list??
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 […]
