Reclaimed Wood Shelving & The Backsplash

The kitchen is mostly done, with only some lighting and decor left to install.  Counters are in, cabinets are in, and just a week or two ago, we finished the backsplash & some open reclaimed wood shelving over the desk area. I’m in love with how it’s all turning out. [...]

In The Shop

One of the most exciting things about owning a shop is getting in new products. It’s like Christmas morning when those boxes come in.  We got a large shipment of pillows in last month, and I cannot wait to get them all listed online.  Seems like these days that we are running [...]

  One of the questions I’m asked most is about my favorite white paint colors.  I’m working on updating the FAQ’s section of the blog but I thought this one needed answering in a new post. When we changed our entire home from dark to light, I scoured loads of [...]

What I Love About You…

To my littlest. I hope your birthday was so much fun, and was a time you’ll remember fondly. I love your quiet moments.  You can be so calm and reflective.  You were my lap baby, the one who likes to hold my hand when we walk into a store or into a crowded room.  I love how [...]

Favorite Family Photo Books

The living room used to be a constant evolving door for decor, pillows, wall art, etc. Since we redefined our style, and found some key pieces we love, it seems that I’m content with this space to mostly remain the same.  I’ll occasionally switch up a throw pillow here or [...]

Curate

If I could give one bit of advice to new shop owners–Curate your style. Own it.  Be selective. It’s okay to think a lot is cute or pretty or amazing.  But you don’t have to stock or sell everything you like.  I think all of us shop owners, antique fair blazers, [...]

The Summer Pillow Collection, a Sale, & House Beautiful

As our business has grown and changed, I’m in an ever-evolving process of putting my finger on my 90/10 rule. You know, spending 90% of my time on profit-enducing activities and 10% on those not directly related to profit.  It’s not just about profit either.  I am [...]
