Lighting + Hardware In The Scary Room

This post is in partnership with Rejuvenation.  We started The Scary Room at the top of this year, and here we are, in the second half of April, and we are finally thisclose to the room’s starting point! I say ‘starting point,’ because do you remember where we began? Many of the rooms in this house required […]

Choosing a Paint Color for the Scary Room

In what might be the most anticlimactic reveal of all time, we painted the Scary Room! Despite the lack of contrast between where we started and where we are now, painting this room has made all the difference. What was once a hodge podge of new and old drywall, yellow-y joint compound and unknown grime is now a […]

Our Closet Plans for The Scary Room

Earlier this week, we introduced The Scary Room. Hands down, it was (and still is) the most neglected space in our house since the day we moved in. It will ultimately be our home’s third bedroom, but because of the room’s disrepair, there’s a rather large punch list to bring this room to a presentable starting […]

Introducing The Scary Room!

There’s one room in our home that we’ve never been in much of a rush to address. Shortly after moving in, we pulled up the old, worn carpet and took down the dusty black mini blinds that covered the windows. One day, after a particularly rough rainstorm, we noticed that the drywall under one of […]

The Easier Way to Make a Giant Frame (+ New Living Room Art!)

Mixing Metals In the Bathroom

When we first started thinking about the finishes we’d like in our bathroom, we weren’t always on the same page. Scott is a big fan of polished chrome; as he’s said before, that shiny finish is like a pair of your favorite blue jeans – always in style. While I agree, it’s no secret that I love […]

The Scary Attic Heats Up

130 year-old attics are scary. If you have to spend any amount of time in the area above your normal living space, you could pretty easily fall through the ceiling or find yourself face-to-facemask with a sparkly spaceman. And in our case, (in addition to the latter), our attic is especially haunting (maybe literally?) with […]

A Cozy, Neutral (and Tiny) Nursery Reveal!

rocker | ottoman | rug | end table | sconce | ultrasound print | curtains | shades We put the finishing touches on Lucy’s nursery at the tail end of last year, hanging the last piece of artwork and folding the final blanket into place right around the holidays. And then, we waited, but luckily, not too long! Creating a room for our little girl was one of our favorite makeovers […]

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 […]

A Multi-Functional Nursery Closet On a Budget

We first began planning for the nursery closet way back in January – before this room was a nursery and better known as The Scary Room. Because the room itself is long and skinny (as is typical […]
