Did you know I used to design rugs for a living?? Yup! Because of that, I feel like more of a rug expert than, say, your typical lifestyle blogger. After 5+ years of designing rugs, I know the ins and outs of what goes into making rugs, why they cost what they do, etc. But I digress… because I’m here today to share my deeeeeep love of Dash & Albert rugs from Annie Selke, especially the indoor/outdoor ones. They are just so wonderful and I highly encourage you to consider using one in your dining room! Yup, an outdoor rug inside… here’s why:

How I Styled Our Built-Ins

Tour Our Built-Ins & Learn How to Style Built-In Shelving. Styling and decor tips from a pro, how to style a shelves and curate books and vintage decor. Green built in bookshelves

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.

Our Cabin Bedroom Suite Renovation: Before + Design Plan (Part 1)

Cabin bedroom makeover and main bedroom suite renovation in our PNW cabin

Does it feel like I’m throwing too many renovation projects at you? I hope not! This house is just wayyy bigger than our last one and has SO much work that needs to be done. Plus, you know me… I can’t just sit by and look at ugly interiors. So back in November, Sean and I began round 1 of our main bedroom suite makeover… and have yet to finish it. A lot got in the way (more on that here), but we’re finally back to it. So today I want to share the before photos of the space, my design plans, the to do list, and a bit about why we are renovating this room in stages.

Listen, I am always the first to be a bit leery of what people call “Instagram brands.” Ya know, the ones that seemingly come out of nowhere, but suddenly are everywhere on Instagram and have that clean, modern, sure-to-impress-Millennials look. And yes, I am a Millennial… but I am here to tell you that not only is Open Spaces legit, I am obsessed. As part of our recent living room overhaul, they sent over storage and organization products to review and try out for our entryway — you know the one that is definitely NOT a mudroom, despite my fervent hopes and dreams.
