Our Home Tour on Joss & Main

Dining Room | In Honor of Design

Well I am completely flattered to be sharing our home tour on Joss & Main this week! Joss & Main is an online flash sale site for home goods. Some of the deals you find are unreal! They are featuring different rooms from our home and offering similar decor, furniture, and rug pieces that you can shop at a flash sale price! Head over to see the full tour.


Here are a few examples of what you can get your hands on! You can find all of these pieces, and a slew of others under the In Honor of Design home tour.

Pulling together our house into a home has been a piece by piece, room by room project this past year. We are currently working on our living room, and the little ones room will be next. I don’t feel the need to make our home perfect, just a place where each of us feels at home. It took us years to settle into a place we can call home, and I don’t even know how long we will be here, but it has been so good to watch my children grow here, spend evenings with family, and some backyard bashes with friends. My favorite thing might be Saturday morning coffee and convo with Gabe while the kids dance to music:)

I hope you all have a splendid weekend!

DIY Modern Planter Upgrades


I have stubbornly refused to give up bringing live plants into our home even though I know their survival rate is comparable to a lamb among wolves. HOWEVER, with the help of my good ole pen and ink planner, I am remembering to at least water them for a chance of survival. It reads something like this, “WATER THE PLANTS OR THEY WILL DIE!” Written a few times across a weekly calendar might appear disturbing to the average over-the-shoulder glancer, but I tell you it is the only way!

I usually pick up planters in the $10-$15 range from Lowe’s, and especially love when they are melamine for indoor or outdoor use. Since I move things around from room to room like a nesting spaz these days, I was having difficulty getting a few to flow together in varying height the way I was hoping. I had originally wanted to use these pretty pegs for a couch upgrade, but since I ended up not needing them for that purpose, I decided to use them to give me a lift in the plant department. So my awesome large sized planter sprouted a set of pretty peg legs in the perfect height and color. It immediately gave it a modern swedish vibe ( I say swedish because they tend to have the upper hand on home design, and just sounds cooler). I feel the need to make twenty-three more and fill my home with unrealistic goals of keeping that many plants alive through the winter.

Pretty pegs offers an insane amount of cute color and size leg options for coffee tables, couches, end tables, armchairs, etc. I think it highly imperative you take the time to swoon today and see what I am talking about:) They are all custom made! It comes with the hardware you need to attach to your piece, and for the planter, I just used the same method from The New Boho book I used for the wooden bowl planter. Just need a good power tool.


Additional Tips for DIY Planter Upgrades:
– I also just used a light coat of bronze gold spray paint on the previously dull brown wire planter which allowed it to sync well with the rest of the room. It just takes a little tweaking here and there to make things work for your home, without having to buy new things.
– Trash cans can make great planters! I had a woven wastebasket I wasn’t using that ended up being the perfect planter for my aloe vera. They are getting along swimmingly.

*The rug is from Rugs USA. Looking forward to sharing our Living room makeover in a few weeks. Just adding the final touches:)
I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun home related announcement!
