Five Things Friday

1. I'm such a fan of grasscloth wallpaper.  It's subtle, but adds a lot of texture and interest.

2. I promise we are not turning into a food blog, but Aymee and I are both total foodies.  Which means we geek out on pretty food and drinks.  We both feel better when we cook healthy, and when we come across a healthy new recipe (that's easy... that's key), we have to share it!  Here's one I came across this week... Soft Boiled Eggs.  You guys, my mind and tastebuds are blown.  I came across a post by one of my favorite follows @myfreedombell (a food feed on instagram), and she shared a recipe for soft boiled eggs (here). I added brown rice, sautéed mushrooms and kale, avocado, and of course... "Everything But the Bagel" seasoning from Trader Joes.  So delicious!

3. This week, Brad and I found out we are having a baby GIRL! To say I was shocked is an understatement.  I really thought it was a boy, but I'm over the moon to have another girl!  Here are a few things I've already purchased for her... I know, I need to chill... but, baby girl stuff is way too cute (1, 2, 3).  Here are a few things I have my eyes on (1, 2, 3).

4. We installed the Schneider Kitchen/Living Space on Monday!  It was so much fun to see this project come together.  Stay tuned for next week, we'll be sharing all of the before and afters (which you guys went CRAZY over on instagram).  Can I just say that we are so appreciative of every single "like" and comment you guys send our way?  It means so much to us, so thank you!!!

5. On install days, it's inevitable that we have to run out and grab a few things to finish a space.  Some things we always end up picking up are planters, vases, coffee table books, plants, and pillows.  Here are a few of my favorites (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

Have a great weekend!

 

Design Trend / Warmer Interiors for 2018

One of our favorite interior trends for 2018 is warmer tones. We love seeing rich, moody interiors. Don’t be afraid of this trend. It doesn’t mean you have to paint every room in your house dark...or any for that matter! We actually love this trend in light bright houses, dispersed through textiles, accessories, and artwork. However, we do love a dark wall too ;)

Whether it’s a little or a lot, we’re digging it.Here are a few images we’ve compiled that inspire us and this trend!

Five Things Friday

1. Aymee is back! Yay! We are hitting the ground running, wasting no time getting back into things.  This coming week we have two installs!  We can't wait to show you the finished product from both very different projects!  Our install on Monday is an eclectic, modern kitchen/living space.  Our install next weekend is an updated traditional home.  Both are renovations, both are VERY different.  Make sure you watch our instagram stories to follow along!

2. Speaking of installs, it's important to wear comfortable clothes and shoes.  We are moving constantly, and need to be able to stay on our toes.  Here's some of my install uniform go-to items (shoes, jeans, sweatshirt, earrings).

3. I've been loving gray/greige cabinets lately.  If we get the chance to build, I'm considering them for our kitchen... but who knows, I'm sure I will change my mind a million times before that happens!

4. For Christmas, I was gifted this perfume, and it's by far the best smelling stuff I've ever used! It's Tocca "Stella", and it smells like oranges... It's amazing!  I keep the roll-on in my purse, and it's perfect for traveling.  I love it!

5. One of my goals for 2018 is to be more prepared when it comes to food and my family (meal plan, freezer meals, and an organized kitchen).  I know, a little lofty, but it's really important for me to plan ahead and have things easy to find with all of our families food allergies (especially when I'm working or out of town).  I find myself spending way to much time, money, and energy into meals when I don't prepare.  Here are a few things that are helping me keep this resolution (cookbook, recipe box, weekly meal calendar, glass canisters, canisters).

Have a great holiday weekend!
