Five Things Friday

1. I have been so drawn to neutral palettes with a lot of texture lately... Well, actually I’ve always been drawn to this look. There’s something about this look that gives a sense of calm, comfort, and beauty, probably because it reminds me so much of the PNW. Here are some things inspiring me.

Some home items that have that same neutral, textured look (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

2. I am all about this sherpa jacket right now, and I found one that’s almost identical, and half the price!

3. This weekend, Brad and I are headed to Portland for a few nights. I’m SO excited, and am really looking forward to doing a whole lot of walking, sleeping, and eating. Here’s what’s in my bag... (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16).

4. I am really into the enneagram, and so is Aymee! This weekend, I’m bringing “The Road Back to You”, and “The Path Between Us.” I can’t wait to read these books with Brad over the weekend. What number are you on the enneagram? I’m a 2 wing 3, Aymee is an 8 wing 7, and both of our husbands are 3’s!

5. We’ve been keeping it a secret, but our Virtual Design Services are now available on our website! Its been available for a couple of months, but we’ve been keeping it pretty quiet until now.

Kidd New Build / Kitchen Inspiration

When I say I’ve had a few sleepless nights thinking about the design of our kitchen, that’s an understatement… I have gone back and forth, in lots of different directions with this space, because it means SO much to me. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and our family has a lot of serious food allergies and an auto-immune disease, so having a safe, functional, beautiful kitchen is really important to us. I see it as a place for our family to find comfort and safety (since we can rarely eat out). I see it as a place where we will entertain and make lots of memories. Design is so much more than making a space “look good”, it’s about creating an environment that makes you feel 100% comfortable, inspired and at home. I think I’m finally getting somewhere with our kitchen, and boy… I’m excited about it!

Some inspiration…

Low/High Dining Room Design

We are sharing two dining rooms, one that is at a higher price point, and the other at a lower price point. When designing a room, we encourage our clients to invest in anchor pieces (furniture, rugs, lighting, and artwork), and buy more affordable accessories. Here are the two designs we’ve created that look eerily similar, but crazy price differences!

Five Things Friday

  1. This week I’ve been head down trying to finish up all the soft finish selections for our Broken Top Project. I’m happy to say I just finished (as of 5 seconds ago, that’s why I’m so late to the game on writing today’s post). Now the designs are off to Sarah to put onto a design board, and we present on Monday. I’m very excited for this one! It’s a very modern, minimal, mountain project. Here are a few of my favorite pieces (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

  2. Some inspiration I’ve curated for our Broken Top Project…

3. Aymee and I are all about comfy shoes. I recently got these white sneakers, and Aymee got these ones. I can say I’ve worn mine almost everyday since arriving in the mail.

4. Have you guys ever checked out H&M Home? They have some really great things! Here are a few of my favorites (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

5. I have been listening to this album on repeat lately. SO GOOD.


Have a great weekend, and enjoy this sunshine while it lasts! October has to be my favorite month.
