Basic Dry Wall to Aged Brick Wall. (+ Timelapse Video)

August 17, 2018


This past month, we worked with Emily Harris and North Georgia Brick to take a standard dry wall in our studio room and convert it into an aged brick wall. (Or as close to one as you can get without it actually being aged!) We have worked with Emily before on our dining room walls, and love how it transformed the entire feel of the room. Our area doesn’t have any homes older than early 90’s so we thought we would tackle the challenge of making a space your own outside despite it’s standard build.We are sharing a timelapse video today of the entire room from start to finish….


Studio Room + Guest Room – Phase 1

August 14, 2018

We have been working on finishing a room in our daylight basement that will work as both a studio/work space and a guest room! We had the basics finished for a while now, so it was fun to finally start designing. I thought I would share how I select lighting for a space, and the original design board because I think it helps to see the process behind a room…


Weekend Roundup!

August 9, 2018


I am posting this a little early, but here is my weekend round up for you!

Travel tips for getting through customs quickly.

August 8, 2018



We recently took the whole gang to get passports for an upcoming trip, and it shockingly went pretty quickly! (Props to Gabe for being really prepared and having all of our documents ready beforehand.) Since we are heading to Dominican Republic next month, we need to have passports and go through customs. I was feeling really anxious about that, but so many of you shared helpful travel tips for getting through customs quickly. There were some great nuggets of info, so decided to put them all in one post for anyone else wondering the same things I was!


An East Nashville Airbnb + Favorite Local Spots.

August 7, 2018


We made a quick trip to Nashville to visit my sister and her family before the school year starts again. Our children are similar ages and if you were to ask mine who their best friends are, they would tell you their cousins! We rented my friend Elsie Larson’s Airbnb, and had to pass along this gem to you all. I loved the retro vibe and the touch of green in every room. As someone who is always observing design, nothing inspires me more than going to different cities. This east Nashville Airbnb perfectly reflected the culture of one of our favorite cities.

Pregnancy loss and the recovery process.

August 1, 2018


I’ve tried to write this post for weeks. It is never easy to write about the hardest parts of your life. I have not had much motivation to blog at all these past few months, but it is so important to me all the same to speak out about miscarriage recovery. After I wrote about the loss of our baby, it felt like so many of you reached through your screens and came through with so much compassion, love, empathy, and understanding. I heard many of your stories. It helped me tremendously, and I will never be able to thank each of you personally the way I wish I could! A few very important people in my life also told me it was okay to take my time to grieve. If writing about what has helped me in miscarriage recovery can also help someone else walking this difficult road, it is 100 percent worth it to me. If you know someone who is going through this, I hope this post can help you understand the best ways to reach out to them as well.
