Five Things Friday

1.I spent last weekend in Bend with some of my closest girlfriends. We lounged, shopped, ate way too much, and stayed up way past my 9:30pm bedtime… Ha! It was just what I needed.

2. Fall is right around the corner, and I’m ready for it! It’s my favorite time of year. Here are some clothing items I’m eyeing for the transition from summer to fall. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16).

3. Drywall is starting at the Kidd House! This is the exciting part in the building process. Everything is starting to take shape. Thanks again to all who voted on instagram about our kitchen cabinet color… I’ve gotta keep some things a secret, so you’ll have to wait to find out the color we’re going with!

4. We have a big install in the next couple of weeks! Can’t wait to share this project with you guys. I think you’ll see a new side to Light & Dwell :). Here are some items going in this home that I’m extra excited about! (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

5. I love this quote… Words to live by…

Have a great weekend!

Five Things Friday

1. I’ve been really drawn to this palette lately… The rusts, olives, sages, creams, greys, and tans (yes, I said tan). I love how warm this combination feels, and it’s such a contrast from the cold whites we’ve been seeing for a few years. I’m sure I’ll be using these colors in my future house :)

2. I’m a huge fan of paper-bag pants. Don’t let the name throw you off, they are actually flattering! Ha. Not to mention, they’re really comfortable. Here are a few of my favorites (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

3. Today Krew (my son) turns 3! Last weekend we celebrated by throwing him a baseball birthday party. He’s our little slugger, and since he wants to play baseball like his dad, the theme seemed appropriate :) Krew has such a tender heart, silly spirit, and rambunctious personality… He keeps us on our toes, in the best possible way! Not to mention I’m completely wrapped around his little finger… I’m in trouble.

4. We recently ordered all the interior and exterior door knobs for our house! We wanted something substantial, timeless, and minimal (but not boring). (interior door knobs, exterior door knobs, front door hardware).

5. Have you seen this kitchen? I’m in love! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of the handmade zellige tiles.

Have a great weekend!

I’m always so drawn to curated, textured spaces that tell a story.

2. Everyone knows I love Madewell… Here are a few things I’m loving from Madewell for summer (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

3. Have you seen our “Brokentop VRBO Project Living Room & Half Bath” reveal? Make sure you check it out if you haven’t! Working on full service projects is the best part of my job. I love watching the process of every project unfold, and the reveal is always such a joyful moment! If you’re building a new home or remodeling your current home, we’d love to work with you! Fill out a Full Service Design Form to get started!

4. Are you on the Glossier band wagon yet? I am OBSESSED with their boy brow in “brown”. It keeps your brows looking full, yet natural. I also love their cloud paint in “puff”, and their generation g sheer matte lipstick in “cake.”

5. This coffee table book is my new favorite. The photography is beautiful, and I’m so inspired by the design.



Have a great weekend! Ours is full of graduation parties (including Miss Abbee Kuhlmans)!
