(Full disclosure: I’m writing this at 2 p.m., and it’s snacktime…)
I haven’t been the best at showing progress in the office much because we have SO MUCH shuffling to do in here, but I recently shared a story where we were stocking some snacks and drinks in our new SMEG fridge (we got the small, cream one for the office — we have had the cream toaster for years and it’s one of my favorite purchases we’ve made!) and it sparked such a big discussion about SNACKS in my DMs. So I thought today, it would be fun to share photos of our favorite corner of the office, the corner where all the food is. Ha!
I’ve shared a few of my favorite healthy snacks in an IGTV with my friend (here!) but I thought it would be fun to share a few of the snacks we keep stashed in our office that keep us productive and going!
We’ve stocked the cabinets to the right of the fridge with snacks for our team (not everyone is grain free/dairy free like me but we try to keep them all on the healthy side!). When you really need to focus and write or edit, it helps to chew on something (this neuro gum seriously works!). Or, sometimes you just finished a marathon conference call and you can finally start chomping on the chips — Quest Chips (Loaded Taco! Omg!) or Pop Corners are our go-to.
Right now we have Sumo Mandarins (Have you TRIED this amazing fruit?! Possibly the best thing about winter is it’s Sumo season!) and a variety of protein bars and compostable K cups for mornings. I’m a No-Cow Bar lover, but Andrea said she’s “not there yet” (hahaha) and opts for the Quest Hero bar. We also have Dang bars and Keto Crave bars.
Something chocolate-y helps us through the 2 o’clock slump (Choc Zero forever, but we have some Andes Mints, too). And when I’m in design mode, I really love to reach for something crunchy so we keep all sorts of nuts on hand. Lately I’m really loving these flavored Sahale nuts — they’re like DESSERT honestly.
And, Smart Sweets are okay ANY TIME. OF. THE. DAY. My favorite are the peach rings, with the sour gummy bears and sour kids tied for second. To be honest, I could take or leave the sweet fish. (I pack these in my purse for the movies, too!)
Drink-wise, we always have Bai Bubbles (The coconut lime flavor is ridiculously good), Just Water, Hint Water, Sparkling Hint water (which is kind of too strongly carbonated, imo), WANU, and Zevia. The Bai Bubbles and Hint Water always go the fastest.
We’re working on the other side of the office this week (an accent wall with our logo!) that I hope to share next week! But now I want to know what your favorite healthy treats are! And is it even possible to think without chewing on something? Tell me your ways.
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.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
