The Rooftop Pergola Reveal!

This post is sponsored by Lowe’s. When we last talked about Project Pergola, we left you with a rooftop deck that went from bare to pow! As a refresher, we’ve been working with our friends Josh and Liz to give their upper deck a transformative makeover that would provide them with shade, comfort and an intimate […]

This post is sponsored by Lowe’s. See part I of this II post series right here! As it turns out (but probably not so surprisingly?), vintage bathrooms are very polarizing!

The Tree House Kitchen Reveal!

This post is in partnership with Lowe’s. Both the kitchen and mudroom renovations were completed in tandem, which allowed us to think of these two rooms – separated only by a cute pink pocket door – as a whole. On paper, they perform two unrelated functions; one is a place of cooking, simmering and gathering, whereas […]

The Tree House Mudroom Reveal!

This post is in partnership with Lowe’s.  This week, we are so excited to share our finished kitchen and mudroom with you! Both rooms were completed a handful of weeks ago, and we celebrated with a bottle of wine and a big pasta dinner. (Is there any other way?) We dreamed up the design with our […]

And then, we waited, but luckily, not too long! Creating a room for our little girl was one of our favorite makeovers […]
