Lately we find ourselves browsing the web for some interior design inspiration at night, bookmarking different tile companies, vintage shops, and etsy finds. It’s something we enjoy doing when we have a little down time. We often think about who the original owners of this house were and what the street looked like. While watching Miracle on 34th Street on Christmas … Continue reading “OUR KITCHEN: THE PLAN”
We always have so much fun reading up on home decor, discovering new websites and books on inspiring spaces, new and old trends and great finds. Recently, we made a few small updates in the dining room/breakfast nook area of our apartment, that have made a big impact on the space. A few small additions are really making it … Continue reading “Little Kitchen Nook”
Since selling our house in Phoenix, we have been living in an apartment while our home in Tucson is being built. I cant believe we’re almost coming up on a year of living here. That really flew by.

To kick things off with updating more, I wanted to share a round up of a few purchases I made this past month and have been loving. Take a look below at beauty and wellness items, to household products, along with clothing and a little something to keep yourself (and the kiddos) organized.

Early Stages of Framing We have a wall up at the build site! We snapped these photos the second week of January while we were in Tucson checking in on things. Despite having some delays with framing, it was such a good trip. We met our future neighbors, saw a family of javelinas and were … Continue reading “Tucson Build: The Early Stages of Framing”
We’ve been fans of Studio McGee for quite some time now. Her neutral and comfortable design approach can lend itself to so many styles: traditional, farmhouse and even southwest. She currently released a new collection with Target, so naturally I had to browse. Below I rounded up a few items that caught my eye, specifically these baskets for Ollie’s room.
Why We’re Choosing Concrete Floors IN Our Home One of the first decisions we’ve had to make for our new home was what the flooring in the main living area/first level would be like. Right away we knew we wanted something that resembled the natural tones and pigment of the surrounding desert rock. We toyed … Continue reading “Why We’re Choosing Concrete Floors In Our Home”
Some of my favorite memories from my childhood are the perfectly imperfect ones…the messy moments that weren’t anything extraordinary at first glance, but proved to be very special looking back.
