Rental Style Vol. 1 (a new series!)

Inspired by our current work / living situation - I decided to start a new series - mood boards with affordable finds!

If you've been following along for a while - than you know that we move every few years for David's job. For the last couple of months we've been in transition-  David's been working a few hours away and we've been back and forth. We should know soon where we'll be for the next few years and that has me thinking about renting again and what our place might look like (though, probably with a little less pink, per David's request :) 
sofa // rug // coffee table // chair // pillow 1 and 2 // hexagon side table 

I'm loving the global vibe and I'm obsessed with the rug (super affordable too!) The chair is a little bit of a splurge, but it has great style, so I say worth it (especially, since it's on sale now). Using less expensive items and spending on statement pieces is a great way to get the look you want while staying in budget. 

I hope you enjoy the new series! Want to see me design a room around a specific piece? Let me know in the comments!

Kitchen Reno Update!

Hi all! I hope you had a great weekend! Our kitchen renovation has been a slow process (we started tearing out the tile flooring over a year ago and moved onto other things!), but we are in the last few weeks - I cannot wait! We've been without a real kitchen for a while - SO excited for our new and improved kitchen!

You may remember this mood board that I shared the other week.


We'll keep the base white (it's pretty dark here, so we want to keep everything as light as possible - including adding lots of additional sources of light - sconces, under cabinet, pendants). And adding contrast and warmth with pops of black and accents of natural wood.

Here's what it looked like when we moved in. 


It was so cramped and the layout of horrible! You couldn't have two people work in there at one time - having ample clearance between countertops so that two people can easily walk past each other (42" is a good measurement) makes a kitchen so much more functional.


We installed hardwood into the kitchen and refinished the floors - since then the floors have been stained - all cabinets removed and most of the painting and drywall are up! So excited to fill this blank slat!!


We're working with Home Depot and I love how it's coming together! Here are a few renderings!



We'll be using KraftMaid cabinets, Silestone quartz countertops, Samsung black stainless appliances 

If you couldn't tell from above I'm just a little excited :) I can't wait to see how it comes together! Stay tuned!!

I had fun browsing the new section at Ikea! 

A fun vase! Reminds me of this DIY!
Love these in matte black!


David and his dad have been spending a lot of time on the electrical in our house. Since we don't have drywall ceilings - we don't have space to run wiring or install recessed lighting - it makes running the wires much more difficult! I like the idea of not hiding the conduit, but making it a feature with a contrasting color.

I want to replace our exterior lights - Rejuvenation has some great options



Anyone do a grocery delivery service? Does it save money and/or time? Is it worth it?

These are my new favorite snack on the go



Love Emily's bedroom! The color combo and texture is impactful yet subtle and super pretty! 

Please pin from original source, here, thanks! 





I'm loving this rug! (on sale too!) 

I missed out on everyone's favorite cardigan - I'll have to wait until it's back in stock, but they do have a blanket version! 



I'll be sharing a bathroom and kitchen update in our house next week - stay tuned!
