Happy Friday!

My LeCreuset dutch oven and braiser are two of my favorite and most used kitchen items, and I’m absolutely in love with this new color!   I am obsessed with the work of this ceramicist and can’t believe these flower arrangements aren’t real.   Love these garden boots and the fact that they’re lined with a cute floral pattern inside.   I love that our kitchen cabinets are a color while also being subtle, but I also love cabinets like these in a more obvious hue.   Such sweet details on these pillowcases.   This take on nachos looks delicious.

Preserving Wood Trim

Of all the the aspects of our home, our wood trim is probably the thing that gets the most attention and questions, and it was probably one of the biggest selling factors for us when we first saw the house. However, for all our love of wood trim, it can be tricky to work with. Bringing in other wood tones into the space warrants more thought and attention than it would if we had a home full of painted woodwork. We’ve made the mistake a few times of falling in a love with a wooden piece just to realize that

Happy Friday!

Love this personalization of a DeGournay wallpaper! So special and something you could treasure forever.   Snagged this hand towel from D. Porthault on their semi-annual super sale for our bathroom! A bit of a splurge, but I have been waiting for this sale for a long time.   I have been stumbling upon Instagram accounts with motivational illustrations and it turns out they are just what the doctor ordered in the new year. See some of my favorites here, here, and here.   I stumbled upon John Derian’s apartment tour this week, and it is perfect! Over the top

Sparking Joy in a Minimal World

Does this spark joy? It’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot recently after starting Marie Kondo’s new Netflix show, Tidying Up, and it seems I’m not the only one, as almost everyone I talk to has been bitten by the bug of organization and almost every other social media post I see is of newly folded drawers that would make even Marie proud. This isn’t our first go around with the KonMari method. Several years ago, Adam and I purchased The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up when we were still living in our small one-room downtown loft, and it really

Happy Friday!

Who’s ready for a three day weekend? Me! Here are a few things that caught our eye this week.   In love with the blue detail in this tile work and the whole feed in general.   Love or hate millennials, I found this article very interesting.   How to bring beauty into your home’s most utilitarian spaces.   I’ve really been into pink tone rooms recently and find this bedroom so cozy.   Along the line of cozy bedrooms, we started this board in case we ever decide to refresh our own bedroom. Loving all of layered looks.

To Grandmother’s House We Go

This summer, Amber and I asked my grandmother if we could photograph her beautiful home. I have always loved her home and have created so many wonderful memories there over the years and felt the photos would be something our family could always cherish. Any interior we have the option to bring to life through our styling and photography is special, but this particular project obviously has a special place in our hearts. There is something about capturing a space you spend/have spent a lot of time in that makes you see it in a new light. Having spent so

Have a wonderful weekend!   Anyone else feeling inspired by organizing master Marie Kondo’s new Netflix show? She’s so adorable and makes me feel a sudden urge to refold all of my clothes in her magical way.   Speaking of prepping for good things

Gifts for Gardeners

A beautiful vase to display their lovingly cared for flowers. Francis Palmer is my absolute favorite to dream over. Jill Rosenwald and Sheldon Ceramics are other favorites.   Some handy pruners for all their snipping needs. These Japanese shears are as beautiful as they are practical.   A simple apron for stashing tools and other odds and ends.   A charming miniature door to add some whimsy to their fairy garden. It would be great paired with this.   Reliable work boots for mucking about. There’s also the beloved Hunter boots.   A notebook for sketching, record keeping, and scheming.

Here are five takeaways from the holiday home tour followed by all the photos

Dining Room Madness

You may remember us deciding whether or not to paint our dining room trim and that we eventually did to decide to paint and shared why. Though we like our current dining room and it certainly is not a bad space to be in, we do feel that it is time for a bit of an upgrade now that we are settled into our house a bit more and see what it needs. Though we love a beautiful white room, we have found our dining room to feel harsh and sterile in the evenings when we have friends and family
