Five Things Friday

1. It's good to be back! Karoline Faye was born on May 29th, and we couldn't be more in love.  She is perfection, and we feel so blessed to call her ours.  She's officially the new Light and Dwell mascot, making her first debut to our install this past Sunday.


2. My first day back we had an install for a waiting room.  It feels so good to be back at work.  I'm so thankful for a job that I love, and that our team is such a great support system.  We were all happy with how the waiting room turned out, and I was extra grateful for my team (and their hubby's) who loaded and unloaded the truck in 90 degree heat!  Now that's love.

3. It's the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (and every other person is blogging about it), so why not share some of my favorites from the sale too?  Here are my top 8 picks under $100 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

4. We have a HUGE home renovation going on in Corvallis, and right now I'm at the beginning stages of putting together the design for it.  It's an older home, with lots of charm.  Here's some inspiration I've gathered for the laundry/kitchen so far.

5. I'm in Seattle for the weekend, and am looking forward to some time in a new city!

Enjoy the weekend!

Corvallis Eclectic Traditional / Part 1

We are finally sharing the entry and half bath from our Corvallis Eclectic Traditional project! This was such a fun project for our team.  We loved mixing the young, fresh, eclectic style of our clients, with the traditional bones of the home.  Our clients wanted an entry that made a huge impact, and I think it now does just that!  We also love the fun cle tile in the bathroom paired with a traditional wall color and vanity.  Overall, we love how it turned out, and more importantly, our clients love it!

Our Favorites / Bathroom Vanities

We use premade bathroom vanities in a lot of projects.  It’s much less expensive than custom cabinetry (which, we love… don’t get us wrong, but not always in budget).  There are so many great options these days, and we’re here to share some of our favorites with you!

Our Favorites / Red, White & Blue

It’s the fourth of July! Red, white, and blue is timeless, and can be done in a “non-cheesy” way. We’re celebrating by sharing some of our favorite red, white, and blue spaces and decor.

How to Style Pillows / For your Sofa

It’s no secret that we go a little crazy over decorative pillows!  They add pattern, texture, character, and color to every space. We wanted to share with you how we style pillows on sofas, and what some of the guidelines are when choosing different patterns, colors, and sizes.
