This Week’s Home Lust List

As of this week (!!!), the main level of our house is almost complete.  It feels so wild to actually say that, but I have spent countless hours working on this space to try to make our first home feel more mature than our previous apartments.  Knowing we will be here for *hopefully* quite some time, I’ve been mindful to choose and invest in timeless, versatile and classic pieces that can be moved around room to room.  This is especially helpful if we were to ever move in the future into another home… pieces could move around!

Now I’ve shifted to finishing our basement and patio that have sat mostly empty since we moved here in July.  This means in addition to the dining room and nursery reveal, I have a living room, bedroom, den + kitchen + breakfast room (this is one large space so I’ll be sharing all of this together) and office reveal coming very soon!

In Target news, we bought two of these egg chairs for the patio and they’re even more amazing in person (photo here).  I bought two of these giant poufs for the sectional that’s going in the basement and they are soooo comfy.  I found this vase and this tray at Target this week and can’t believe how expensive they look in person.  I love them!

I have a match striker on my wish list.  This floor lamp is really speaking to me… I’m wondering if Christian would let me splurge.  Also… what is y’alls thoughts on firewood racks.  Helpful?  Not helpful? We have a giant stack of firewood on our patio but I’m thinking… what does one do with the rack during the seasons that firewood isn’t necessary?

Now that we are in a home larger than our former apartment, I actually need more coffee table books.  I recently bought this one and have my eye on a few more.  Do you have any favorite design books?

Thank you so much for reading and sharing! XO –

Hudson’s Nursery Reveal

I am so excited to share Hudson’s room with you guys!  It’s probably the most special room in our house because it was my first time looking at cribs, rockers, baby toys, etc.  A completely new kind of project but so much fun. I worked on this space with Pottery Barn Kids… and no one does a sweeter nursery than Pottery Barn.  They have so many beautiful children’s pieces – everything from cribs and bookshelves to swaddles, play mats, travel cribs, baby carriers – the list goes on. The crib,…

Gallery Walls and Custom Framing

bench | drapes | white planter | coastal art + surfer art + San Francisco sketch c/o Minted | map frame I get a lot of questions about the different art and gallery walls in our Georgia home, so I wanted to put a few photos together with my tips and advice when choosing custom framing. When we were in Europe this summer on our babymoon (posts on that here, here, here and here), I bought an Hermés scarf of a map of Paris as a souvenir that I could frame in an…

Dining Room Reveal

We have been working on this dining room transformation for several months, so I am so excited to share these photos with you guys!  I partnered with Pottery Barn to create this moody and romantic space that I hope will create memories and spark candlelit conversations for many years to come. Originally the walls were painted navy blue and I loved how the darkness worked for the space.  The bottom half of the walls are wainscoting.  I thought a moody floral wallpaper on the top half of the walls would…

Hospital Bag Packing List | What I Used and Didn’t Use

By popular demand, I’m sharing what I packed for the hospital!  I polled you guys on Instagram if you wanted to see the items we used or both the items we used and didn’t use, and everyone said both.  So here we are. If you’re one of the 5 or fewer men that read this blog occasionally… you might want to skip the below.  This is a post for the ladies and could be read as TMI if it doesn’t pertain to you!  That’s your warning. I used my MZ…

Hudson’s Nursery Closet

Before I share Hudson’s full nursery with you guys, I wanted to share a peek into his custom closet that was designed by The Container Store.  I have loved my closet transformation so much (video tour here), so I was definitely excited to update this nursery closet into a more functional space. Before it was installed, the closet was simply one shelf and a hanging rod.  Below I’m sharing a “before” photo from another closet upstairs with the same layout.  Considering baby clothes hang less than two feet… that’s a…

9 NYE Outfit Ideas | 2019

With New Year’s Eve around the corner, I wanted to share a few blog posts from 2019 that I would totally wear on NYE if I had some snazzy plans.  You can also see some of 2018’s here and 2017’s here! The blog posts with outfit details are linked underneath each photo – but let me know if you can’t find something.  And wow… if some of these photos aren’t motivation for this postpartum body to get on the treadmill (it was a push present request), I don’t know what is. …
