Fall Patio Refresh

Fall Patio Refresh

Hi friends! Today, I’m excited to share how we recently refreshed our back patio in partnership with Article. But first, let me back up. We bought our home a little over three years ago in October 2019. When we moved in, the back door led to a concrete step down to a concrete pathway in the backyard. You can see a ‘before’ photo here. It was definitely not kid-friendly and it didn’t look very pretty! In April 2020, we added on a deck and it’s been TRULY one of the areas of our home we use the most. The girls spend a ton of time […]

Bunk Bed Inspiration, Ideas & Plans!

Bunk Bed Inspiration, Ideas & Plans!

Hi friends! What started as a ‘let’s think about getting the girls bunk beds’ turned into me going into a deep rabbit hole learning about bunk beds! Today, I’m going to share more about different bunk bed options I found, including dimensions, photos, links to shop, etc. For reference, the girls share a room and both are in matching Stokke cribs. Here’s a post all about their shared nursery! When they were much younger, we had the Stokke cribs in the ‘Mini’ size and over the years have added inserts and larger mattresses. Right now, Winnie is in the standard oval crib size and Lucy […]

living room refresh with wayfair

This blog post is sponsored by Wayfair I’m always redecorating and tweaking different corners of our home. Not because I don’t like the way it looks or because it isn’t functioning well, but because switching things out and moving things around gives a new life to a room and feels really refreshing. I ordered these chairs from Wayfair originally for our family room (the one with the statement green accent wall) and while they worked okay, I  didn’t love it. So on a whim, I decided to move them into our front living room and I’m really loving how they look (and function!) in here. […]

New Shop Lucky Collective Pillows

New Shop Lucky Collective Pillows

I’ve had my Moroccan textile shop for about a year and a half now! It’s been really fun to curate and sell one of a kind, handmade pillows and floor cushions, and I’ve learned SO much during this new endeavor. I recently released a bunch of new pillows and they are so gorgeous I  wanted to share here too! You can sort and filter pillows by shape (square vs lumbar) and also by type (kilim, cactus silk, boujad, etc.) so it’s really easy to discover and shop that way! Here are some furniture-specific throw pillow styling tips: In the middle of bed, place two similar […]

Decorating our New Living Room Built-In Shelves

Decorating our New Living Room Built-In Shelves

Over the last few months, we’ve been slowly tweaking our living room space. I’ve shared one half of the room in this blog post, but now I’m showing you the other side! The room is in the very front of our house, with a big window and connected to our guest room (our former bedroom) via wooden pocket doors. Nothing was ‘wrong’ with the space, but I just had been itching for a change. The biggest decor updates we made were swapping out a bulky couch and ottoman set for a pretty curved sofa and changing the lighting. We previously had a brass sputnik chandelier […]

How-To: Custom Built-In Shelves in Our Living Room

How-To: Custom Built-In Shelves in Our Living Room

If you know me or have been following along for awhile, you know I’m always tweaking and updating our space! I  believe our home isn’t stagnant but always evolving based on our needs and preferences. Our living room is immediately right when you walk into our house. You see the fireplace right away, plus a large, beautiful window facing our front yard.  On either side of the fireplace was sort of wasted space. The left side has a large window and the right side had a large indented area that was just…empty. It was perfect for our Christmas tree, but of course, that’s not a […]
