Merry Holidays + Our Favorites

sectional | faux fur throw | sconce | coffee table | chair | curtains + rod | rug (similar) I just re-read our post from one year ago (almost to the day), and I was overcome with a strong surge of warmth and happiness. 2017 was a wild ride, but 2018? 2018 changed us. We met the […]

For Home + DIY: The YBH 2018 Gift Guide

Today’s guide includes everything involved in making your home a place that you absolutely love! We’re breaking it down by items that surround you (and make you smile) + items to create everything you’ve envisioned for your home. Chances are, you may even notice many of these things from around our own home! Let’s dive […]

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. The photo above makes us smile so hard, but to be honest, we were torn on having a proper maternity photoshoot. Was it […]

2016, You’ve Been Real.

Do you take time, as the end of December comes near, to look back on the year? We’ve been thinking a lot about what 2016 has brought. We started the year with our big three-room-renovation, and in February, we allowed ourselves a week off to enjoy the warm sun with our friends. As soon as we […]

Our Simple Holiday Home Tour

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2220084″] When we decorate for the holidays, we keep it relatively simple. One year, as my mother-in-law was handing me a decor-related gift, she joked, Kim, I know you don’t like a lot of ‘stuff,’ but I think you’ll like this! That surprised me, because I never really considered myself a minimalist by any stretch of the imagination – […]

Gifts for the Pet Lover (+ Everyone Else!)

We love the holiday season for countless reasons – you know, thick blankets on the bed, fuzzy slippers, warm rum-spiked drinks and our Bing Crosby records(!) – but of course the very best reason is the extra time we have with friends and family we may not see as much throughout the year. A thoughtful token that […]

Well Done, 2015 + a Big Thank You

Even as we wind down our year, we still have a tall order ahead of us. On our ambitious agenda? Starting the bathroom tile (and nailing down every last detail on how many bullnose pieces we’ll need for the walls), mapping out our plan of attack for the PAX, and choosing a bedroom paint color. […]

A Gift Guide (Because Your Friend Has Enough Scarves)

As Scott and I do our holiday shopping, we always like to turn to items that we’ve tried and loved, especially those things that friends and family have personally asked: I have to know, what is that scent? Ha, where do you find something like that? Ooh, I could use one of those. We enjoy […]

A Simple Tree Skirt Alternative

It’s not yet Thanksgiving, but this Sunday, we put up our Christmas tree! Considering that we almost skipped the tradition entirely last year, this makes it the first time we’ve done so before slicing into turkey. (Also a first? Holiday music in November. I’ll take it!) Although it’s the earliest we’ve been on the Christmas […]
