Looking forward to a spring weekend and working in the yard! The dahlia tubers we ordered have started to arrive, and this couple’s devotion to dahlias has me all kinds of impressed. This video of theirs is packed full of information. Love this soft laundry room! This video showing changes in population of the top cities from 10,000 BC to present is fascinating. This porch!!!! Have you ever seen the Smithsonian’s aerial series? We just watched Aerial New Zealand, which did a great job of highlighting such a beautiful country. Love these colorful candles.
This hit me in the gut this week. Powerful words by Rupi Kaur. Amber and I have been watching Catastrophe for the last week and are already into season three. It goes by quick, and though it’s sometimes a bit much for us, we have found lots of it hilarious! Speaking of shows, we are excited to potentially watch this as we have heard great things. Amber sent me this article this week about why the Easter Island statues were placed where they are, and I find it absolutely fascinating. Good thing we often forget to
Everyone enjoying those extra evening hours of daylight? It’s given me such an extra boost of energy this week! What a fun way to “decorate” cookies! No icing required! If you’re looking for some fun, retro-inspired fabrics, these would be perfect! How Inuit parents teach kids to control their anger In love with this simple, glamorous yet slightly industrial kitchen. All about planting roses and setting them up for many years of beauty. Fun dishes. Are you addicted to doing?
In case you missed it, our home tour was shared on House Beautiful this week and can be found here. I have a love hate relationship with 30 day challenges, but I was really drawn to this 30 day simplicity challenge. Such easy things that I think could make a big difference. OMG Floret Farm is planning a book all about dahlias!! Can’t wait! Sewing is such a lost art! Loved following Lucy Cuneo’s roman shade process this week.

Before You know those rooms that you know could be SO much better but that don’t technically HAVE to be changed in order to live with them? This was definitely one of those rooms for us. When we bought our house, we saw ourselves renovating this space down the road, but we felt in no real hurry, as we didn’t necessarily hate the space. However, that feeling didn’t last all that long. The thing with renovations is that it’s really hard to stop once you catch the bug, and the more renovations we wrapped up in our home, the more
If you are in the process of starting some seeds for a spring or summer garden like we are, you may find this seed starting guide helpful. I’m sure you have seen this dress from the Oscars, but it bears sharing again. So elegant and timeless, just like our favorite interiors. Speaking of fashion, Amber and I just watched First Monday in May and it I highly recommend watching it if you are into fashion or any high paced industry operating at the highest level. It’s also on Netflix which is even better! I have been listening
Adam and I watched this documentary earlier in the week, and it was so gripping! Love how well this stunning home is captured in 60 seconds. I’m officially obsessed with this room, and it’s giving me some major inspiration for a future laundry room renovation. Just snagged two of these recently restocked rose bushes from Grace Rose Farm. So excited!! Adam just started this book and is really enjoying it so far! Final project of late design legend Mario Buatta. Looks delicious! Got Adam this for Valentine’s day, and we’re obsessed. So simple
I am certainly not an expert gardener. However, I am a researcher and planner at heart and know how long the planning stages take prior to truly diving into any new project to do it right. In hopes that I can save you the countless hours of research I (and Amber) have gone through in order to begin executing our dream garden plan, I have pulled together all of our favorites: our favorite books, our favorite sources for inspiration, and our favorite practical tools that even include a spreadsheet I created to easily help you plan your own garden starting
Yay for the weekend! I’m planning on doing some organizing this weekend and will be channeling this. Why you feel sicker at night. Sometimes creating specialness in the mundane can make all the difference. Like this idea of a lunch club. If I ever get a dog, this just sealed the deal that it will be a Corgi! Beautiful mixed media piece of art. All about growing cosmos. Hanging pictures can be so hard. If this works, my life will be forever changed. We couldn’t be happier with the craftsmanship of our dining
I’m not the best gift giver. I can think of things all year long I should get someone, but the second a gift giving occasion arrives, I totally draw a blank. Some of the hardest occasions are those that sneak up on you like Valentine’s Day, which somehow is now under a week away! In case you’re looking for a gift for a special someone, friend, or yourself, I wanted to share a few things that might spark some ideas. Fun earrings. Adam actually got me a pair similar to these for Christmas, and I’ve already worn them
