The Tree House Kitchen Reveal!

This post is in partnership with Lowe’s. Both the kitchen and mudroom renovations were completed in tandem, which allowed us to think of these two rooms – separated only by a cute pink pocket door – as a whole. On paper, they perform two unrelated functions; one is a place of cooking, simmering and gathering, whereas […]

The Tree House Mudroom Reveal!

This post is in partnership with Lowe’s.  This week, we are so excited to share our finished kitchen and mudroom with you! Both rooms were completed a handful of weeks ago, and we celebrated with a bottle of wine and a big pasta dinner. (Is there any other way?) We dreamed up the design with our […]

How-To Tile a Kitchen Backsplash + a Video!

This post is in partnership with Lowe’s. We’re overhauling our kitchen and mudroom with Lowe’s and sharing our experience with you! Here’s our initial design meeting, how we pieced together panels + fillers, how we shopped for durable countertops and how we built thick floating shelves. Renovation is a funny thing. It starts out exciting; you think, oh, the possibilities! You […]

The One Item That Inspired Our Entire Kitchen Design

A question we receive often when it comes to a new room design is: Where do you start? And the truth is … we don’t have a clear answer. I’m admittedly the kind of person that feels frustrated if we start a room design and it feels ‘off’; it could be anything from the paint color […]

Happy Tile Day

Catch the entire tiling story in parts I and II. When deciding on tile for our bathroom, we knew we wanted simple. Black. White. Black and white together, as we did on our hex floors. Every photo we found ourselves drawn to highlighted classic themes – subway tile, warm woods and brass accents. We’ll get to […]

The Anatomy of Our Soap Shelves

Today, I want to talk about the super riveting topic of soap shelves! But seriously, have you ever thought about it? Until we really got to tiling, we weren’t super aware of all the things we’d have to think about. Things like outside corners! Inside corners! Bullnose trim! Tile above the baseboards and tile around the […]

Checking Off the Backsplash!

See part one of the tile post right here. The thing about tiling is not that it’s difficult, but it really is a job that takes time, patience and a lot of supplies. Luckily, we still have a handful of tools leftover from our entryway, but I will say that if this is your first […]

Setting the Backsplash

Our tile backsplash is in place! We had about 50 square feet to complete, and our goal was to set the tile on Saturday and enjoy a day of nothing-ness on Sunday – and we did it! We still need to finish the job with grout, caulk and sealer (one night this week, if all […]
