When we first started thinking about the bedroom renovation, I had lofty goals. One MAJOR project that I wanted to tackle was to move the bedroom door. As you may recall from the before photos, the existing door used to open directly into the ideal closet location. I felt like the best way to solve that problem would be to move it… but then I put more thought into it and realized that moving the door would cause all kinds of problems: we’d have to repaint my gorgeous blue wall… the dining room would be totally disrupted… and we’d have to find matching floor boards to fill in where the wall used to be. It ended up spiraling and my hopes were quickly dashed. That is, until I had an a-ha moment: we could install a barn door! Not only would this design choice solve our door opening issue, but it would actually save space for us. Talk about #winning…

small space entertaining // a rustic tablescape to celebrate summer

I’ve always wavered when choosing a favorite season. I’m definitely not a hot weather kind of person, so I wouldn’t say that true summer is tops for me. Spring is too gloomy and wet, while winter is just too damn cold. Fall leads to winter and typically just feels too damn short. But there’s this sweet spot where summer blends into fall that just feels absolutely perfect. That fleeting moment in time is what this rustic tablescape is meant to celebrate. The cooler evenings, the changing product available at the farmers market, even the shift in my decorating color palette.

Renovating a house is a funny thing… you start one room and in the midst of that project, you start to cast an editing eye around to the other rooms. Or at least that’s the trap I keep falling into! Lately I’ve been feeling like the living room needed a bit of a refresh, especially since I haven’t changed that room much in almost a year. One major change we made recently was to get an IKEA couch and then increase the drama with a new slipcover from Bemz; the effect is quite dramatic, but also very livable and comfy!
