Home Love Printables club

Home Love Printable Club

Our friends at Home Love Network, headed by Andy and Candis of Old Home Love (remember their amazing floral staircase DIY?!) just released a wonderful new printables club. For $5 a month (and your first month free for a limited time only!) you get access to art prints, stationery, party decorations, home decor and more. They believe that everyone deserves a beautiful home regardless of budget, size, and time they spend decorating so this club is meant to solve that problem.

Every month you’ll receive a folder chock full of beautifully designed pieces for a BARGAIN. I printed these puppies off at our local printer and had them affixed to foam core and they were so cheap and lovely. It’s such a great way to add artwork to the walls especially since our office walls have been bare for months. After seeing how easy it was I’m all about adding more and I’m so glad to know that it’s a monthly series!

This month celebrates the luck of the Irish with a nod to all things green and lucky. I especially love the botanical print and invitations. So gorgeous! They’re perfect for a lovely dinner party

Napping at Work is a Thing

Are you familiar with the napping-at-work trend that seems to be taking the world by storm? If you’re confused, simply google “napping at work” and you’ll be sure to find yourself plenty of articles, opinions, and research backing up a workday snooze session. From the moment I heard about this napping phenomenon, I wondered why we hadn’t thought of this sooner! Now that I’m pregnant and will soon be bringing baby with me to work, I’m convinced it might as well be mandatory to have a space for napping on the job! Okay, perhaps not mandatory. The point is, we’ve been trying to create a space in our studio for a while that can serve as a multi-functional area as a waiting area, for meetings, relaxing, and naturally, napping! 

However, it was difficult for us to justify bringing a bed into the studio, considering our small space issues. So we were thrilled when we came across the perfect Novogratz Futon from DHP Furniture that looks like a sleek couch one minute and can be transformed into a comfy bed the next! We were able to create an area that fits all our needs in one, without sacrificing space or style! Meaning that this pregnant mama with a soon to be little one can take all the rest she needs!

Baby’s full nursery reveal

Last week I revealed Baby Boy’s nursery mural! This week I wanted to share the full nursery reveal with you as I received a lot of questions about the design details. No need to fret! They’re all in this post! There’s a lot to talk about as it was a full on room transformation. We started with a very blank beige canvas if you recall last week’s before photos. Remember?! Once again, much like our office space, I’ve partnered with Blinds.com to transform the space with some wonderful window treatments and it made a world of difference. It set the tone for the full room and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how they turned out. Come take a peek at all the details!

Illustrator Feature: Jaqueline Diedam

Jaqueline DiedamFor this month’s illustrator feature we’re taking a look at the talented Jaqueline Diedam’s creative mind! Jackie is based in Cologne and graduated from Köln International School of Design, currently doing freelance illustration and design. I absolutely love Jaqueline’s style and could look through her work for hours. She also has some great insights on how to stay creative and avoid artistic slumps, which I really appreciated. Jaqueline often will illustrate her current scenery within a travel journal which I love! What an amazing way to preserve memories! She sells a variety of posters, stationery, and other items so make sure you check out her website to ogle over!

Before and After: Our baby boy nursery mural

Baby boy nursery muralIf you follow along on Instagram Stories you will have spied a ton of sneak peeks of the mural we’ve been working on in our new baby nursery. You guys had so many sweet comments to offer and they really get me even more excited than I already am. Baby Boy Lars is due anytime now (gahhh!) so I’m trying to wrap up the details of his nursery (and work and taxes and life and etc. etc.). But, I just had to talk about the mural first as it’s so stunning and I’m super giddy about it. I teamed up with BEHR®Paint to bring it to life and had such a great experience. It’s because of them that I actually took the nursery seriously in the first place. Who knows when or IF I would have done anything about it. But clearly, something had to be done. Here are the beige before pictures: Read on →
