Laundry Schedule

This post is brought to you by Maytag, all opinions expressed are our own. By Emily. I think it’s safe to say for the majority of you readers (and us) laundry is a nemesis. The least favorite household task, the never-ending, nagging, particular and finicky job of keeping our family’s clothing clean. What if your washer or dryer could fit infinitely more laundry than it does now. How about 22 towels in one load? I just got butterflies. Exhibit A: 22 Towels:Maytag’s new top loading Washer and Dryer is the largest capacity washer with agitator in the market. It has an … Read more

Raleigh’s Nursery

By Emily. I haven’t updated the nursery in six years, so it was definitely time for a refresh! Hayes was born and then Cal came along sixteen months later and I honestly wasn’t ready to part with it that quick! Then they started sharing room and there wasn’t any reason to do much to the nursery until Raleigh! All I wanted for the space was to be serene and calming. So we painted it the lightest bone white and some added mixed metallic touches. Gold and copper mostly!Added a Sputnik light fixture, a new grey recliner (mine sold out, but … Read more

We’re long admirers of Minted and so excited to share a few pieces we were gifted by them recently!

We’ll be sharing all of our picks over the next month or so, first up are Nicole’s picks!

modern mudroom

This post is brought to you by Valspar® Reserve™ exclusively at Lowe’s, find a store near you here. We’re back with the big reveal of our Modern Mudroom challenge! We wanted to create a space that functioned like a mudroom, but made only with paint. Each child has a “color” and inside that color is their space to hold coats, backpacks, homework, artwork and whatever else they need to grab on their way in or out the door. We painted matching stools for not only seating, but for a little easy shelf space! Check out this film made with Jenner Brown of Lumineux … Read more

fresh wave

By Emily. Now that the news is out (scroll down one more post!) I can finally write this post! I’ve been using these Fresh Wave products like crazy the last few months and had to share. Fresh Wave is a line of odor eliminiation products, but the best part is that its non-toxic and is just plants, oil and water. So instead of trying to mask smells with fragrances that can be harmful, it eliminates them with molecular science. I don’t pretend to understand that, but I do know that they work!My pregnancy nose is no joke. People, places, things, … Read more
