Let’s face it, we all can’t afford a brand new living room with high-end pieces, but we can mix, match, and prioritize pieces. Sometimes, you just want to “get the look” for a season, and save for high quality pieces. If you’re on a budget, we recommend investing in anchor pieces (sofa, rug, accent chairs, coffee table, and lighting) as you can. Here’s an example of a high and low living room design, so you can get the look!
1. We've finally decided on vertical board and batten for our exterior siding on our new house! I'm so excited! Here are some pictures of how it will look! TBD on the color.
3. I found the perfect fall sweater... it's literally the sweater of my dreams (stripes, my favorite colors, and it's flowy). I can't wait to wear it! Here are a few more sweaters I love for fall (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
4. We're working on a vacation home in BEND that I'm over the moon excited about! We met with our client this week, and it was fun hearing all about her hopes and needs for the space. Envision lots of natural elements, black and whites, and modern mountain design. I've been pinning all week, here are a few inspiration pictures I've already saved for when I start designing the project.
5. Whenever I get asked how I'm "juggling" it all, I laugh. Because, frankly, I'm not. I have a really supportive husband, a babysitter, and I have to say "no" to a lot of things these days. This picture below is my life in a nutshell. Loud, crazy, exhausting... but perfect to me. We all need to be more "real" on the internet. Aymee and I try our best to be ourselves in this small space of influence we have on the web, and want everyone to feel comfortable and invited. We do the same in our design. We want our designs to be inviting, comfortable, and authentic. We never want our clients to feel intimidated or embarrassed of their homes, because our job is to go into peoples homes and transform them into the best versions they can be.
Have a great weekend!
Last week we shared the exterior inspiration and design board for Aymee’s Office She-Shed. This week, we are sharing the interior. When thinking about this space, we wanted it to function as a work space for at least two people. The space needed a built-in work counter (bar height), open shelving, storage for a printer/scanner, a lounge chair, and oversized “idea” board. Here’s the design board for the interior!
1. Once again, I'm late to the game on posting, but better late than never, right? Happy Labor Day! There are lots of amazing sales going on this weekend, all furniture at Anthropologie is 20% off, and McGee and Co is offering 15% off all rugs, furniture, and wall decor. Here are a few of my favorites from both places! (dining chairs, coffee table, rug, accent chair, sofa, pouf, shelves, abstract art, glacier art, backroads art).
2. We have handmade tiles going in some of our upcoming installs, and I AM OBSESSED. I find them SO beautiful, and give so much texture to a space. Here are a few spaces I've pinned recently with handmade tile.
3. We had family pictures taken on Sunday, and Kayla from Roper Made, sent me over a few preview shots. Kayla has been taking our family pictures ever since Karis was born, every single year. Its been so fun to see how our family shoots have evolved from mild chaos, to absolute chaos. One good shot is a win in my book! Here's a few she sent over.
4. Aymee and I were talking about how much Old Navy is killing it lately with their jeans. This weekend, all jeans/tees/sweatshirts/dresses are 50% off. I jumped on that sale, because momma can afford Old Navy 50% off, and momma needs new jeans... and a few more black and white striped shirts ;) Here's what's in the mail, all together under $60! (1, 2, 3, 4)... I may have also snagged this sweater (Aymee has the same one in camel)!
5. Aymee's shed, soon to be our office shed, is really coming together! Make sure you check out Wednesday's blog post if you missed the exterior picks and inspiration!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
