Why We Chose a Vintage Rug + Our Favorites!

sectional | ottoman | knit throw | pink pillow | gray pillow (similar) Despite our lack of trim molding (still!), it was super important for us to have a cozy spot to land at the end of a long day of DIY. (Oh, and yeah, our view from that pretty sofa might be bare drywall […]

A Gallery Wall Update + Our Go-To Framing Guide

fauxdenza | ottoman | navy rug | sectional | C-table | plaid throw Any time we post a photo of one of our home’s gallery walls (either in an Instagram square or through a Story), our inbox immediately fills with requests for a link to the (old) post(s), questions on where we bought X, Y or Z frame, […]

Adapting Our Pets to Baby: An Update!

The Best Year Yet

headboard | chunky throw | marble shelf | bedside table | bunny clock | sconces When we look back at 2017, we both agree that it’s been one of our best years yet, but we think it’s equally safe to say that the best is yet to come.

Jack and CC are big, slobbery knuckleheads (that we love so much, it hurts), and we often joke that if attending school was a thing, our dogs […]
