L&D Spring Style

We tend to stick with interior design, but we do get fashion questions from time to time as well! We get the most questions regarding the outfits we wore during our "Salem Scandinavian House" shoot, so we thought we'd share our looks with you! 

Living in Oregon, we tend to keep things pretty neutral (it must be a PNW thing).  Our fashion definitely influences our interiors... we tend to stick with timeless, comfortable pieces, with a nod to current trends.  We're all a little different, but also have a lot of the same pieces in our closets... like the same jean jackets and brown tote bags... That's us!

Five Things Friday

1. Sarah spent the weekend in California, and kept sending us pictures of cute shops.  I was especially dying over the pictures from Serena & Lily (insert heart-eye emoji)! As soon as I saw these chairs around the outdoor dining table, I lost my mind!

2. I have been wearing this top, these jeans (similar), and these shoes (similar) on repeat lately. As a mom with young ones, I'm always wearing jeans, comfortable shoes, and a comfy top.  It's easy to go from errands, to a playdate, to a design meeting in this uniform.

3. We are currently working on a few kitchen remodels, and I've been collecting inspiration.  I'm really loving wood cabinets again!  These are two of my favorite inspiration pictures.


Design unknown (please tell me if you know)!

4. Magnolia Magazine came out with their summer 2017 issue, and it's SO good. But, are we really that surprised? This July, I'm going to Waco and I'm really excited!  We'll be staying in Austin, so if you know of any good spots to eat/shop/see, please let me know in the comments! We also recently switched over our flannel sheets and heavy duvet to cotton sheets and a quilt. I'm a fan of the detail on this quilt... It adds subtle pattern and texture.

5. My youngest boy, Krew, has had skin issues since he was born... Its been a lot of trial and error to figure out what the source of it all is.  He has a peanut/egg/tree nut allergy, and he's also very sensitive to wool.  Since almost every rug in our house is wool, I needed something to place over the top for him to play on.  My dear friend from Utah has a company called "Gathre" (I'm sure you've heard of them, unless you're living under a rock - ha)! They make beautiful bonded leather mats that are hypo-allergenic and super durable.  We have one in every size (no joke), and they've seriously been such a life-saver for our family.  Check them out!  Also, a few of you asked me about my rugs on instagram, the blue one is from here, and the plaid one is from here.

Have a great weekend!

Five Things Friday

Since this weekend is Mother's Day, and some of you are scrambling, I thought I'd share Five Things that you could do for your Mom this weekend!

1. Trader Joes has some really gorgeous flowers.  Instead of just giving your mom flowers in the plastic wrap, buy 3 of the same arrangement (or our favorite thing to do is three of the same flower in the same color), take the flowers out of the plastic wrap and put them in a beautiful vase.

2. Everyone loves a mani/pedi... Call your mom's best friend to find out where she likes to go and get her a gift certificate to her favorite place!

3. If you're trying to save some money, bring your mom some coffee and a treat from a local shop in town (if you're in Corvallis, we recommend Tried & True), and write her a sweet letter (who writes letters anymore?!).  It's the little things, right?

4. No woman will say no to a day of shopping.  Gift her with a gift certificate to a place she loves. Some good places are Nordstrom, Madewell, and Restyle Home (if you're local)!

5. Who doesn't love a framed picture of their family?? Pick up a frame, and frame your favorite picture of you with your mom (we suggest black and white).  She will love it, and a picture speaks a thousand words!

Happy Mother's Day!
