It is a known fact that I am obsessed with Rejuvenation lighting. During our bedroom makeover, I had the opportunity to meet with the team in Portland and tour the factory where they hand-make and finish many of the gorgeous pieces you see in their stores. As I become a more conscious shopper, I love adding pieces to my home that are made in America and feature heirloom-level quality and materials. Rejuvenation checks off those boxes for me, while also bringing a classic, yet modern design aesthetic to any space — even a small space! After perusing Rejuvenation’s Online Lighting Guide, I felt inspired and wanted to share which lighting would work best for a small space with you.
Styling a #shelfie is by far one of my most favorite decor tricks in my portfolio. I could literally spend hours tweaking the placement of my books, various home decor accent pieces, dishes, vases, and ephemera… it’s almost therapeutic! During one of my many living room re-styling sessions, I realized that there is one key element upon which I always rely: accent trays! This basic, yet essential decor piece has so many uses and styles… I just knew I had to share some tips on how to incorporate a stylish tray into your home + some of my favorites!
Ever since my days as a wee little industrial design student, I have had a mild obsession with Blu Dot. The modern furniture and home decor brand is only 20 years old, but I’m sure you’ve seen their pieces in countless spaces… especially mine (here, here, and here). Not only is the aesthetic of everything they do so spot on, but it also works so well with different vibes! I’ve seen the same Blu Dot piece in a modern, minimalist space work well in a maximalist, bohemian home… it’s really quite incredible. So imagine my excitement when I discovered that the Minneapolis-based brand was opening a store in Seattle. The 5,800-square-foot store opens next week, but here’s a sneak peek of just how incredible it’s going to be:
I remember this moment so well: I had officially closed on #mytinybungalow and, with keys in hand, went to check out my new home again. I walked through the front door and it hit me just how tiny the house was! Even as a renter, my loft had more square footage than my ‘new’ house. In that moment, it felt so daunting. Now that I’ve been in the space for over 2 years, I feel like I have this whole small space thing on lock! Throughout my small space journey, I’ve learned loads of tricks to make the space feel bigger and I wanted to share them with you.
I’m the type of hostess who always keeps many bottles of wine on hand. I hate to be caught unprepared, so instead I tend to go a bit overboard with the wine hoarding. You all know our bungalow is pretty tiny, so I’ve had to get creative with how we store the extra wine — especially because it’s best for wine bottles to lay on their sides. And, until we can renovate the kitchen, we’ve had to rely on some store-bought storage pieces to help keep the bottles tidy. I know I can’t possibly be the only one out there who’s wanted wine storage that is both chic and functional, so I wanted to share some of what I found while researching options for our space!
There are way too many details in our new(ish) backyard for me to pick a favorite. That being said, there is one detail that continues to give me a tiny thrill: our outdoor string lights. Every time we plug them in and they cast that romantic glow, I can’t help but think that the amount of time spent on a ladder getting the placement juuuust right was worth it. For our patio space, we used these copper LED string lights, but there are so many more options out there that I just had to share with you!
