The day I discovered the Turkish rug in our bedroom, I knew it was The One. After designing the space to be predominantly white and blue, I knew I needed a pop. That pop had to be coral! The issue was in finding the right size, the right shade of coral, and the right pattern in rug. I ended up driving down to Portland and finding this gem at Wild Shaman that is actually my favorite rug in the entire tiny bungalow. I’m asked about it constantly, especially on Instagram. So I finally dug deep and found TONS of sources for similar vintage rugs in a coral color palette. If you’re in the market for a new rug or just want to mimic ours, this post is for you!Continue reading “Get the Look: Our Vintage Turkish Rug”

Let’s dig into the before photos + the design plan.Continue reading “Craftsman House Makeover with Amazon Home | Before & Design Plan”

Thankfully, our tiny bungalow has an abundance of beautiful, bright natural light. That was all but a prerequisite when I was house hunting! Our bathroom however… it is quite a cave.

Here’s a bit of what I found during my research + links to buy cuttings or entire plants!Continue reading “My 5 Favorite Low Light House Plants”
