Our Favorites / Light & Dwell Pillow Combinations

We get asked a lot about personal style, and how to combine our pillows for each unique home.  Our pillow line was created with almost every style in mind.  The goal of our pillow line was to create luxurious (yet affordable) , eco-friendly (organic), functional (with zippers for washing), aesthetically pleasing pillows for everyone!  To help you identify your style, we've created some of our favorite pillow combinations.  But remember, the combos are endless! Every pillow from our line goes together... Which means, you can look like a pattern mixing pro without having to think too hard!

Five Things Friday

Happy Friday, friends!

Instead of the typical "Five Things Friday" post, I'm going to share with you five trends I'm loving when it comes to interior design.

1. Dark Kitchen Cabinets... They are killing me right now.  I can't get enough of them!  I'm just waiting for the perfect client whose ready to take the beautiful risk of painted dark cabinets.  Here are a few of my favorites.

2. Striped rugs.  Whether it's under a bed, in a living room, or in an entry, I love them!

3. Rod Iron Beds are another favorite of mine.  They pair well with almost every style - modern, traditional, and farmhouse.  They're also generally affordable!

4. Natural Wood Accents... Especially in kitchens in bathrooms!  Whether it's a hood, island, or bathroom vanity, I'm loving that natural wood is back in!

5. Detailed Molding on interior walls.  I absolutely can't get enough of this trend!  When done well, it can make any room look so much more expensive and put together.  It also adds texture and really beautiful detail.  It might be my favorite trend right now!

We have a big install this weekend that we can't wait to share! What are your plans?

Have a great weekend!

Five Things Friday

1. Austin, Texas is such a fun city!  It was my first time going, and we were only there for a few days, so we packed a lot in to 48 hours!  If you are a foodie, you would absolutely LOVE it.  The amount of delicious restaurants are endless.  It's a good thing the city is also known for their outdoor activities, because I ate my way through the city!  One of my favorite things we did was bike around the Lady Bird Lake.  It's a beautiful path that goes around the lake, which is right in the heart of Austin.  I also loved eating at Hopdoddy... You guys, the burgers are AMAZING. So good!  Rainy Street was also a really fun atmosphere at night.  It's a beautiful city, with lots to do! I definitely want to go back.

2. You all knew this one was coming... Magnolia Market!  It was just how I imagined it would be.  There were SO many people there (and we went mid day on a Tuesday), but every single person was in such a great mood (regardless of the 110 degree heat and major lines).  I was really inspired, and I hope to go back again when it's not so hot ;)

3.  While on my trip, I started the book, "Rising Strong", by Brene Brown.  I've underlined almost every other word.  It's great for all you entrepreneurs, creatives, and leaders out there.  Here's one of the many quotes I underlined, "If you have no tolerance for failure, you will not create anything new." Simple, but really true.

4.  We had a really fun install yesterday in Corvallis!  Here's a few pictures I snapped on my phone of the kitchen remodel.  Professional ones to come, as well as all of the sources!

5. While in Austin, I went to the TOMS store, and fell in love with these shoes!  

Have a great weekend!

Five Things Friday

1. Our Light + Dwell Shop Launch Party last Friday night was so much fun!!! Thanks to all who came out and supported us!  We had a blast celebrating with those who came, and we feel so incredibly thankful for everyone's sweet texts, calls, and shoutouts.  Light + Dwell couldn't survive without you, and we are humbled that you continue to support us.  Here are a few pictures from the night (okay, a LOT of pictures)... I guess you could say we had a good time :)

2. Have you guys heard of the DAIS podcast?? It recently came out, and it's one of my new weekly listens.  My favorite episode is the one where Rachel Hollis interviews Joy Cho from Oh Joy!  It's really good... definitely worth the listen!

3. You may have noticed that our online shop opened on Monday!  I am SO proud of our team, and all the hard work that it took to make this thing happen.  To be honest, we are still figuring it all out, and it's A LOT of work, but we are so happy that it's actually out in the world now!  If you want to check it out, visit the "SHOP" tab on the top of our website!

4. Aymee and I had a serious case of the twins on Monday (which is not a surprise, this is starting to become a regular thing)... To be completely honest, we are such dorks, and we were laughing the entire time we were "posing" for these pictures.  I actually got some video of Aymee, but I can't seem to get it to upload... But boy, I love that we don't take ourselves too seriously.

Aymee's Outfit: shirt, sunnies, earrings, jeans, shoes (similar)

Molly's Outfit: earrings, sunnies, shirt (similar), pants, shoes

5. I'm headed to Austin, Texas on Monday and I ordered this romper (50% off!) hoping it would be here in time, but it's not looking promising.  It's going to be over 100 degrees, which makes this romper even more appealing!

Have a great weekend!
