Office Bath Redo & a Coyuchi/Zabada Clean Giveaway

By |April 20th, 2015|

Waay back when, we decided our catch all of an attic could be used for something more.

You know, for important stuff, like for soaking claw foot tubs…

Confession.  I’ve only take one 10 minute bath in that glorious bathtub.

The office bathroom was part of the original attic addition, and when I decorated it back in 2009, […]

The Best of PI Holiday

By |December 3rd, 2014|

Hey friends!

Things around the shop have been amping up with the holidays so close, and we’re hosting workshops, open houses, and black friday was nuts.  Since I’m back in the store daily, we have decided to keep our Christmas decorating really, really simple this year.

We’ve always kept things simple, but I do love to decorate […]

More Simple Fall Decorating

By |October 8th, 2014|

Well, the weather teased me.

We had a couple of Fall-ish days, and I got all excited and broke out the plaid and riding boots.  And it was blazing hot yesterday so I came home all sweaty and puddly.

Yes, puddly.

Our Fall tour this year stuck to mostly the dining room, and while we’ve added a bit more fall […]

Playroom/Homeschool Room Sources

By |September 15th, 2014|

Happy Monday morning to you, friends!

I’ve been dealing with some internet issues this morning since 6 a.m., so I have to say, I’m less chipper than usual this fine day.  If I get this post out to you, it’ll be a good day.  A GOOD day, I tell you.

We’re back with a few sources for […]

Our Place in the Evening

By |August 28th, 2014|

I realized the other day that I’ve never shown our house in the evening.  Usually I have my light boxes and we are shooting bright white interiors with loads of natural light filtering in.  There’s something pretty magical about light and shadow, especially in a room and especially when the warm light is pouring in…

These […]

On Sharing a Home

By |August 19th, 2014|

Me: Honey, would you mind swinging by the antique store and picking up that door I bought?

Him: Um, what door?

Me:  The black one.  The one with the brass mail slot.

Him: Uhh.

Me:  For the laundry room.  That door.

Him:  You didn’t buy a door already?

Me:  Yes.  The black one. At the antique store.

Him: No, I mean another […]

Schoolhouse Light

By |August 6th, 2014|

It seems like there are phases when we feel like tackling the small or mundane projects.  Matt has been on it lately (thank you, babe), and we’re slowly getting some of those little things knocked off of our to-do list like laying thresholds in the doors, changing lightbulbs in the high ceilings, fixing trim, etc.

He […]

Pool House Makeover

By |August 5th, 2014|

Today is filled with organizing and preparing the playroom for school.  I’ll be filing and sorting and tossing old worksheets and getting puzzle pieces reunited. It’ll be the best and worst kind of day.  Worst in that I’m sure I’ll step on a million lego pieces and become overwhelmed at approximately 10 a.m. before getting […]

Reclaimed Wood Shelving & The Backsplash

By |July 31st, 2014|

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.  We went with basic white subway […]

Kitchen Cabinet Updates

By |July 25th, 2014|

Speaking of my favorite white paint color, here is a peek of the kitchen progress…

As you can see, the process isn’t quite finished, but we are getting close.  I wanted to share a little sneak peek with you here…I’m in love, love with the simple shaker-style cabinet doors and how clean it all feels with […]

My Favorite White Paint Colors

By |July 24th, 2014|

 

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 white paint choices…in any brand.  I’ve used […]

The Summer Pillow Collection, a Sale, & House Beautiful

By |July 10th, 2014|

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 constantly identifying what only I can do vs. what […]

Shooting The PI Look Book & A New Camera

By |June 24th, 2014|

We have finally begun shooting the PI look book.  We have planned and thought, and dreamed and man, we have just not gotten our act together until recently.

And so we had a beautiful photo shoot, and then it was time to begin the book party planning–and so we are […]

Nautical Style (And a Before & After)

By |June 9th, 2014|

Well we are beginning the process of our kitchen renovation tomorrow morning, so I’ll be snapping pics all along the way during the process and giving you more details of our plans on the makeover.

Until then, I thought I’d share a quick glimpse of Lance’s room at the beach house.  When […]

Beach Condo: Budget-Friendly Bathroom Updates

By |June 2nd, 2014|

Good Monday morning, lovelies!

Last year, my parents bought a beach condo.  We started decorating, little by little, and on a tight budget.  I love some peach, but this bathroom was a bit much for me, and oh, that shower curtain.

I’m sorry if you have the same said […]

Boy’s Room Reveal

By |May 14th, 2014|

I’m pretty sure I thought Matt was CRAZY when he decided to build Gray a fort bed & lay new flooring one week before Christmas.

After freaking out for a few minutes (or for several days) about the timing and the mess right before the holidays, I did decide to get out […]

Glam Decorating Inspiration & Sherwin-Williams Giveaway for You!

By |May 13th, 2014|

When the people at Sherwin-Williams asked if I wanted to work with their new palette, HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams Softer Side color palette, I began racking my brain to decide which space to makeover/improve/tackle.

I’ve been at a makeover stand-still in our home for a while, because honestly, sometimes you just need […]

Kitchen Makeover in the Works

By |April 18th, 2014|

The only time I’ve shared my kitchen on the blog was waayy back when I was just beginning.

Beginning my blog, my journey to create a home that felt like us.

It was after I took the doors off of our top cabinets for a quick (and free!) makeover.
