narrow hallway storage solution (ikea billy review)

narrow hallway storage solution (ikea billy review)

One of the challenging parts of having an old house is often a lack of closets or storage solutions. Our house was built in 1919, and has minimal closets. Our bedroom has a small one that was sloppily added on fairly recently, and Lucy’s room has a similar sized closet. We do have some storage upstairs, which is where we keep a lot of our bulkier items like suitcases, bins of baby clothes, etc. On the main floor, we have no hallway closets, no bathroom closets, no coat closets, no mud room, etc. Sooooo it’s required a bit of creative thinking to figure out how […]

lucy’s bedroom tour

hello friends! we recently did a home tour over on A Beautiful Mess blog (check it out HERE!✨) and I wanted to share some room-specific posts here on my own blog, too! today, i’m sharing photos of Lucy’s room! her room is in the back of our house, facing the backyard and gets the prettiest afternoon light. a lot of the items in her room you might recognize from her closet nursery in our san francisco apartment, but we’ve added a few new items to fill the space and make the room feel finished and ‘just right.’ I love that her room truly feels like […]

bedroom updates with wayfair

      This post is sponsored by Wayfair, a brand I love and have been partnering with for years! We’ve been in our home for almost 10 months now, and we’re slowly but surely making more and more updates (some big, some small) to our space! I recently made some small but mighty changes to our bedroom, thanks to Wayfair. I’ve shared photos of our bedroom on Instagram before (here + here); candidly, we haven’t spent a lot of time or energy decorating this room as we have other rooms. Right when we moved in, we bought a West Elm dresser from CraigsList, hung two wall […]

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. All thoughts and opinions are, of course, my own. As new homeowners, we have made many, many, MANY trips to our local Home Depot in the last ten months.

I’m excited to share more photos from our home (#aenashnest) with you – our two bathrooms that I recently refreshed with decor and hardware updates from The Home Depot!  🛀🏻One bathroom […]

WE BUILT A GREENHOUSE!

WE BUILT A GREENHOUSE!

this post is in partnership with The Home Depot. hi friends! I’m assuming most people who read my blog also follow me on Instagram and in that case, you probably already have seen the exciting update – we built a greenhouse! A little backstory – we first toured our house in August, signed papers in September and officially moved in October. The house also had a standalone garage in the backyard, which could be accessed from a back alley. We decided immediately that we would NOT put our car in there because it was 1) gross and 2) falling apart and 3) had termite/rot damage, […]
