You know those people who have an infectious energy, who always inspire you on Instagram? For me, that person is Ashley Petrone from Arrows and Bow! She is a fun loving, dancing queen and mom of three… and an incredibly talented renovator. She and her husband have renovated a couple of Airstreams and just moved into a new house. She has taken what she learned from RV-living and incorporated it into minimal living tips in her home. And this home tour is especially fun because we have shots of both of Ashley’s spaces — including their adorable Airbnb casita!Continue reading “Small Space Squad Home Tour: Arrows and Bow”
It is my fervent wish that I blink and it’s suddenly summer… baring global warming, it’s safe to say summer is a few months away from Seattle.

Luckily, there are tons of affordable outdoor side tables on the market right now!Continue reading “Affordable Outdoor Side Tables ($200 and under!)”

One thing that I am asked about a ton is where I got the artwork in our home. We definitely have an eclectic mix, ranging from prints to vintage oil paintings to wall hangings to old posters. Personally, I prefer to have a mix of art rather than pieces from a single source because it makes our home feel more curated and special to us. It’s entirely up to you though! I thought it would help if I shared my favorite, go-to online sources to buy artwork, plus some faves.Continue reading “My Favorite Online Sources to Buy Artwork”
You guys… I am on the warpath! The warpath against plastics, that is. Not only do we try to maintain a low-waste household, we are also working on eliminating plastic usage entirely.

I hope these tips to go plastic-free your daily life help! I swear, they are easy to do.Continue reading “7 Ways to Go Plastic-Free in Your Daily Life”
For a long time I was extremely anti-faux plants. My bff tried to convince me to put one in a darkish corner when I was styling her home and I pushed back… hard. I was totally unconvinced that there were any actually good faux indoor plants. But here’s the thing: the retail gods have heard me and challenged me because, you guys… there are actually some GOOD faux indoor plant options now. It’s really weird and I almost didn’t hit publish on this post because there are so many benefits to real indoor plants… but that just isn’t for everyone and every space.

I’m super-stoked for today’s Small Space Squad home tour, you guys. I’ve not-so-secretly obsessed over this beautifully renovated home of Sarah Jacobson, aka The Grand Apartment, for a loooong time. The thing is that I am really fascinated by her home because it was a total gut job… and all in New York City. The idea of renovating anything in such a large city gives me a bit of agita, but when you see the results… holy cow. Sarah’s home is truly gorgeous and I cannot wait to show you more of it!Continue reading “Small Space Squad: The Grand Apartment”
