The Studio Makeover!

Our home studio is where I work during the day, and if I’m lucky, Scott, too. At the start of last summer, Scott took on a new role in his job that would allow him the flexibility to work from home every now and then, and aside from this being the most exciting thing ever to […]

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 – […]

Going Cordless with Bali Blinds + a Giveaway!

This post is in partnership with Bali Blinds. Soon after moving into this house, we had to replace both of our large picture windows – one in the first floor living room, one in the second floor studio. It was scary and costly at the time, but due to the poor condition they were in, it was ultimately worth […]

Gallery Wall In the Studio(!) + My Simple Method

Every day, the home studio is evolving. It’s been so fun finally putting time and energy into a space that I spend a large part of my week in (I’ve been sharing updates over on Instagram), and not surprisingly, I feel much more productive as a result! Scott recently shifted his role at the office, […]

A Few Good Finds + Shopping An Estate Sale

Last week, my friend Jess and I were walking to a neighborhood coffee shop when she spotted a teeny neon piece of paper tacked to the window on one of the prettiest storefronts in Logan Square. The space was home to Butterfat Studios, a unique tattoo shop that was so much more than body art, rather, it was […]

Those Tiny Tweaks

Maybe more than I’d like to admit, I’m digging deep into our own blog archives to remind myself of a paint color we’ve used, where we bought something or – and probably most importantly! – showing contractors what’s behind our walls. The hunt for the exact type of lumber we used for our dining room fauxdenza […]

A Fun and Easy Instant Photo Display

Scott and I have always been in the habit of taking our Instax Mini camera with us when we travel, always making sure to leave enough room in our backpack for extra film. (One of our favorite ways to get photos with both of us in it is to ask a group of passersby to snag […]

If At First You Don’t Succeed: Part II

See Part I right here! I couldn’t shake that something felt ‘off’ in our living room. We spend a lot of our time in there, rubbing the dogs’ bellies, marathon-ing our way through Netflix, brainstorming upcoming projects and, of course, lots and lots of lounging. At first, I felt like maybe things were a little cramped. […]

Fun & Quirky Wallpaper That Almost Made the Cut

I think I first fell in love with the ostrich wallpaper in our laundry room  the moment I laid eyes on this pretty bathroom makeover. To be honest, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it caught my eye, because the moment I saw it, I immediately Googled like crazy to find as many photos of the paper in […]

15 Shower Curtains We’d Totally Buy

What kind of shower curtain do you have? I’ve seen all the phases of shower-curtain-decor in my adult life – from a map of the world to colorful prints from Klimt and Kandinsky. In our last home, we had the classic white waffle weave, which served us well for years (and years!). I’ve loved all of them for […]
