To me, there is nothing more fun than styling open shelving and built-ins. There is definitely an art form to it, which I talked about a lot in this post from the archives. But now in the cabin, we have a totally different styling to tackle: the built-in shelving in our living room! It’s like a #shelfie but a bigger scale. As soon as we painted it green, I knew it would be the ultimate canvas for me to play with. So today I wanted to have you a cubby-by-cubby tour of it and why I chose the objects that are on display.

While we were working on our new kitchen, all I wanted to do was finish it. First, so I could resume cooking… but mostly so I could style it!

So I figured it was time to share a post all about how to style a kitchen with a full source list of my favorite kitchen accessories + similar items.

How on earth is it already the first full week of March? Woof. I feel like I’m a bit behind! Between styling loooots of photoshoots, attending and teaching at my first Alt Summit, and living life, it was awesome to look back on the month of February through video. For such a short month, I really did a lot — and even had some ridiculous adventures thrown in (just wait til you see Nancy Kerrigan The Chicken’s cameo). I love giving you a glimpse into my life and wanted this video to feel like an even closer look than you may find on Instagram Stories. Welcome to a new monthly series called Monthly Moments!
