Custom Drapery + Shades = Handsome Efficiency

This post is in partnership with Bali Blinds. Hanging curtains high and wide is a design trick loved by many to make a space feel larger, and we’re no exception!

Vlog! A Day (or Two) In the Life: A Trip to Tree House

 Rarely do two days look the same around here, so we’re sharing a day (okay, two!) in the life while we balance a doctor’s appointment, meetings with contractors, and a trip to the tree farm. Plus, we take you behind-the-scenes of a photo shoot, and I might be too excited when I ‘discover’ a trick […]
