Well, it only took my hubby and I five months, but our kids playroom is 98% finished! The only thing left to do is put up some window treatments. While the room is a playroom, we still wanted the whole thing to have a great design. We wanted the room to be able to grow with the […]

4 Must-Have Living Room Updates

Outside of the kitchen, our living room is—hands down— where we spend the most time in our home.

I feel like inviting everyone I know over to our home for a dinner party—in our bedroom. That’s not too strange, right? Our bedroom has come so far!

Color Inspiration for Your Home: Lilac Gray

Pantone recently released the 2016 Color of the Year, and for the first time it’s not one, but two shades!
