Because we’ve spent so much time at home lately, I am getting really bored of our decor. Don’t get me wrong, I love pretty much everything that we’ve accumulated in the tiny bungalow over the years… but in such a small space, some stuff can feel repetitive. Ever since we started quarantining, I’ve been zhushing and shuffling things around the house to make it feel a bit fresher. While working on the sofa the other day, I thought it would be fun to set up the tripod and show you how I have been styling our sofa + share some tips for you to try it out yourself!

My Backyard Design Plans + What It Currently Looks Like (Video)

Looking for backyard design inspiration? Check out my video tour of our current space + the full list of DIY improvements we want to make this summer! #backyard #outdoordecor #gardening #PNWgardens

Are you doing tons of projects at home these days? With the emergence of spring here in Seattle (finally) and our shelter in place order, we’ve been trying to make the most of our home — all without really going to the hardware store! The area we’re focusing our attention on the most is the backyard. Why does it always feel like we’re updating that space?? I think because the winters here are pretty hard on the patio… all that rain. I shortened the list recently, but here’s my backyard design to do list for the next few months!

My (Temporary) Small Space Home Office

How I Work From Home: My Temporary Small Space Home Office. I'm working from our tiny house (640 square feet!) because of the coronavirus, so I wanted to share a peek of what it's like + share my favorite productivity tech tools for blogging, including my electronic standing desk. #homeoffice #standingdesk #smallspace #smalloffice #smallbusiness #officespace

My workspace has been very unsettled ever since last September. I opted to move out of my studio space in order to save money, a decision for which I am so grateful today. After that, I tried to work out of our tiny bungalow, but it proved to be unhealthy in terms of stopping working at the end of the day. We had also just finished making over the living room and just… didn’t want my small space home office to be here! So we moved it 3 blocks north to Sean’s dad’s house. Now that there’s a freaking pandemic, I made the decision again to move my desk back into our 640 sqft home so that both Andy and I can avoid potentially infecting each other. I’ve shared a bit about this on Instagram, but have gotten lots of questions over the past week. So I wanted to share a mini tour of my current home office in case you’re also suddenly working out of your small space!

If there are 2 things I want to be draped in at all times (George Costanza-style) it’s blue and linen. My love for both is nearly equal and our bedroom refresh wouldn’t be complete without incorporating a bit more. Magic Linen was kind enough to gift us new bedding and it’s an absolute DREAM… and the perfect finishing touch for our space! If you’re unfamiliar with Magic Linen, they make the most effortlessly beautiful handmade and stonewashed bedding ever. I’m obsessed… and here’s why.

I am SO excited to share our bedroom refresh today! Ever since we did a full renovation on our tiny bedroom, I’ve known that we needed a storage bed. But at the time, I didn’t love any of the options. We are also very limited with the amount of space around the bed, so anything with drawers was not a viable option. It felt like we’d never be able to find a storage bed… until I discovered the Lid Storage Bed from Blu Dot. Now all of my storage dreams have come true!

After the kitchen cabinet tour I shared two weeks ago, I was not prepared for the number of questions I’d get about where I got something! For example, our knife block is quite popular! It dawned on me (probably while cooking), that I should create one giant list of every single kitchen tool that I use and love with you guys so that it’s easy to find sources. Plus, I’ve added a few new kitchen tools to my line up that are awesome and definitely deserve some mention!
