(It’s worth a click.) Essentially, how can you successfully design a room if you don’t center the space around […]

DIY Closed Terrarium + a Kit Round-Up!

There are a few things that you might have noticed around our home that, after hanging with us for a while, should come as no surprise. Think: white bedding (always), navy accents, pale pink something. Velvet everything. Brass. Marble. Terrariums. Dinosaurs! Okay, but let’s get serious about those last two (ha!).

Kitchen + Mudroom Progress: The Cabinets Are In!

We spent the better part of last week and through the weekend at Tree House with the goal of installing every last kitchen and mudroom cabinet … and we did it! But just barely – ha! Our cabinets were delivered on a Wednesday morning, and we spent the rest of the day going over the inventory […]

14 Ways the Kitchen + Mudroom Are Inching Closer to Cabinet Day!

We’re waiting for the cabinets to arrive (they’re scheduled to land at the end of the month!), but in the meantime, there are still a lot of things we should be doing.

How We Designed the Tree House Kitchen + Mudroom

This post is a paid partnership with Lowe’s.
