Home Tour- Movement and Cozy, workout and play space.

Our home is small and every room must do double (or triple!) duty. We decided to forgo using the largest space as our bedroom, or the girls’, and instead made it a community space. It is my office, our workout room, yoga room, cozy reading nook (one of a few of those!), and space for big […]

Small Home Love, Living Room Tour!

We’ve lived in our home for nearly three years, and still I am finding new things I love about it, new little projects I want to try, and ways to rearrange it (again and again). Our living room has had many iterations, and I seem to always want to wait till it’s as the “best” […]

Paleo Pumpkin Spice

There are hundreds of homemade pumpkin spice syrups out there, but I’ll be totally unbiased and let you know that this one is the best, and isn’t loaded with weird ingredients or corn syrup. The ingredients are simple, and you likely have them on hand, and it tastes like real pumpkin. It’s sweet enough to […]

deep love for this 102 year old lady(home).

Grass green, pale pink, sky blue, flowered wall paper, linear “Roberts” flowers, those are the layers we’ve discovered under our white paint in the office. They are all so beautiful, and sitting here, thinking about all the people and families who poured their style, taste and love, into our 102 year old home. . . […]

Weekend Projects; Open Shelving!

I’ve been seeing open shelving all over and really loving the clean look and how quickly it lightens up a kitchen. But instead of going all demo and ripping out a cabinet we decided to try a lesser commitment and see if we can even do open shelving, because, I mean, in practice it kinda […]

5 tips for decorating a small home

{1} Pick your colors! My knee jerk is to paint each room as sounds good to me in the moment, or as pintrest inspires me in the moment…ahem. BUT, Because we have a small home we need all the rooms to work together, flow well, and have some continuity to make the whole space feel […]

Office Space

We have been in the house for a little over a month and are just starting to figure out the best ways to get each space working. We ended up switching our bedroom and the office this past weekend, and while that was a bummer because it meant my pretty giant midcentury school desk had […]
