This house tour is long overdue. Our last video tour was in January. January! You can check out that tour here and our very first house tour here, taken 17 months ago. In the nine months since our previous house tour, a lot has changed. In fact I dare say, it is the most dramatic house video tour in Chris Loves Julia history! Don’t you just love it when reality shows say things like that (ahem, Bachelor Pad) when they have only existed for 3 seasons. Whatta history! Same thing applies here, but now that we are settling more into our style, the changes we whipped out in the past several months are pretty significant. In our last video, we hadn’t renovated the family room or studio or living room or painted the railings. The updated, tweaked and renovated list is long, which is why we love to do these video tours sporadically so we can one day look back at this one, filmed this morning, and say, “Wow, look at the old kitchen!” It’s true, we can’t wait to say that one.
We just pull the trigger and do it even if we’re halfway through something. There are a few angles/rooms where we can hide something that’s in progress if we really need to, or we’ll just call it out (ex: “you can see we’re in the middle of ____ right now, more on that soon!”).
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.
