Have you heard about Instagram’s new IGTV platform? We have never gotten super into YouTube, although we have been uploading all of our videos there for years, but our community has never been super active on that platform. When Instagram announced that they were launching a platform that you could upload videos up to an hour to (right now, it’s mostly 10 minutes) we felt excited because a good chunk of YOU love Instagram as much as we do.
It took us no time to decide we were going to start making video content for our very own channel, CLJ TV.
We plan to put out weekly DIY episodes, Cooking episodes from Chris (these will go live every Sunday with a corresponding recipe post here), CLJ Q&A will move over there. We are going to share monthly recaps of life and projects around here. We also thought it would be fun to do videos about blogging as a business, tool demos, A Cabin Diary (as we’re just starting that project!) and House Tours.
In fact! We just posted our first episode–an updated house tour we shot yesterday!–to our channel last night! You can watch the 4 minute house tour video right here.
You can watch IGTV videos by clicking on the IGTV icon at the top of your feed in the Instagram app, or you can download the standalone IGTV app for iOS or Android.
You will also be able to watch videos from the “IGTV” icon on Instagram profiles. It’s located first in line with the Instagram Story Highlights.
We’d love to know what else you’d like to see from us over there? I think it might be one of those things like Instagram Stories was. We were all a little hesitant at first and comfy in our snapchat bubble, but now I love Instagram Stories. And we’re excited to share longer videos on CLJ TV. Hope you are, too!
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 […]
