I know, I know… we’re CRAZY for tackling another makeover project while also getting married. But with so many friends and family members in town visiting, our tiny bungalow has been getting a lot of use. Our tiny bathroom is the last renovation project on the list… and it totally looks like it. It was dark, sad, and barely functional. Thanks to our friends at Delta, we recently installed new bathroom fixtures that inspired an easy mini makeover! Today I’m going to share the shower fixtures and sink faucet we chose, plus a bit of the amazing technology behind them. Stay tuned for a pulled back look at the entire space tomorrow, too (including before photos)!
The beauty of sharing Small Space Squad as a hashtag on Instagram is that I discover some truly beautiful homes unexpectedly. Such is the case with the California cool home of interior designer Chrissy McDonald, aka Harlowe James. When her gorgeous, neutral space popped up in my feed, I immediately navigated over and followed. I love how calming Chrissy’s space feels — and that it literally feels like a treehouse! Let’s take a tour and see more, shall we?

One of the standout features of our new kitchen is, without a doubt, our black stainless KitchenAid appliances. We finally feel like we’re living in the 21st century because our old appliances barely turned on, ha! And don’t even get me started on the old oven… The new ones have a lot of innovative features, from complete connectivity for our Smart Oven+ with Powered Attachments via the KitchenAid app, to even heat technology built into our gas cooktop, but one of my favorite features is the color and finish. Any time we bring something new into our home (especially investment pieces), I always research how to take care of them properly. Today I’m sharing tips on how to take care of KitchenAid black stainless steel appliances.
Holy cow. Our wedding is TOMORROW. Somehow I feel like this day has come really quickly, but also has taken forever to get here… all at the same time! I know tomorrow will be a whirlwind of friends, family, and activity. But it’s oh-so-important to me that I’m able to stay present and enjoy each moment. Because of that, I came up with a wedding day self care plan that will hopefully help me stay grounded and in the moment. Here is what I’ve come up with:
Wanna know a fun fact about Joanna? She loves handbags. Early in our friendship, we bonded over her incredible emerald Gucci Dionysus bag. When she approached me to write about handbags, we immediately agreed that the focus should be on ethics and sustainability.
Ever since I watched The True Cost documentary about fast fashion, I’ve been obsessed about knowing whether the people that make our clothes and accessories have fair wages and environmentally safe working conditions. When I’m researching a new bag to buy, I want to make sure the brand thinks about their products and how they are created: ideally, I’d like a bag that’s stylish, and ethically made with as little waste as possible. I also think about cost-per-wear; I’m a big fan of investing in high-quality, ethically made pieces that I can keep forever instead of fast fashion.
The ethical fashion brands on this list make it easier to fill your closet with things that will make you look and feel good.
I am SO STOKED for today’s Small Space Squad home tour… because it is SO unexpected and cool. Meet Zac Ruiz and his adorable family, aka Den For Our Cubs. They live in a safari-style tent and I am so beyond obsessed. And not just normal obsessed… no, I’m full-on head-over-heads for their charming home, gorgeous aesthetic, and darling family. Let’s take a tour, shall we?
Ever since adding an air purifier to our home during the kitchen renovation, I’ve been aware of the quality of our air. The PNW really has great, fresh air, but with the threat of wild fires up here, it can turn pretty quickly. Thankfully, house plants do a great job of helping to clean the air naturally. We’ve incorporated a bunch of air purifying plants into our tiny bungalow and I urge you to do the same!
