Mother’s Day Advent card and Cricut giveaway!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

We loved creating the Valentine Advent a few months ago–the anticipating of the holiday is often times the most fun of the event itself, no?! This time, we created a version for your Mother in partnership with Cricut. The idea is to send this Mother’s Day advent card to your mom BEFORE May even starts.  Each day starting May 1st she can open up a bloom that will reveal one thing that you love about her! Consider it an actionable version of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s poem, “How do I love thee, let me count the ways”.

And to show how much we, and Cricut love thee, we’re giving away TWO Cricut Maker Bundles! One for you and one for your Mother! Head over to our Instagram to enter! Read on →

Daffodil napkin bouquet

Daffodil napkin bouquet name tagMeals are a cause of major anxiety for me, which is precisely why I haven’t done one in years (sadly, not joking). The set up goes like this–Paul makes the food and I set the table. Not a bad trade off 😉 Because of this, I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking of what to do with the table. Enter, daffodil napkin bouquet.Daffodil napkin bouquet name tag

I wanted something simple for Easter this year and these daffodil napkin bouquets are just the trick. They are a cinch to make and capture the essence of the season. If you’re looking to make a more substantial paper flower, you can use our tutorial here, or feel free to use your craft cutting machine or hand cut these out. They’re perfect for little hands too! Add on a name to serve as a name tag. Read on →

Colorblock guest room makeover with Behr

This post is sponsored by Behr. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that allow Lars to create unique and inspired content for you.

We love partnering with our friends at Behr and this time we have a dramatic makeover to reveal. As you read in yesterday’s announcement, our business director, Mary, recently bought a blank canvas house ready for some Lars loving. We decided to go CRAZY with it with a color blocked pattern based on my recent trip to Mexico City (see post here).

For this assignment, we knew we wanted to tackle her tiny guest room. Mary always has guests coming into town so we wanted it to be a conversation starter. The room was pretty standard: beige and carpeted so we knew we needed to add some PIZZAZZ.

Before in all its beige glory: Read on →

One Room Challenge Week 1: Spring 2019 Room Reveal

You may have seen our Instagram announcement last week and if not…we are thrilled to announce that we are participating in a new round of One Room Challenge with 19 other fantastic designers. Huzzah! We loved being involved last time, though it was a little (ok, A LOT) frantic with the renovation of one of our office spaces (see here), and this time we’ve had a bit more breathing room so we are stoked to get going and show you every inch of the process!

One Room Challenge, now in its 15th season, is a 6 week event where bloggers and designers transform one room of a house into magic in partnership with stellar brands. It’s churned out some really great eye candy (see previous years here). You can see everyone’s progress on their respective platforms (see the links at the end of this post) week after week all culminating with a feature on Better Homes and Gardens at the end. They’re all so different and it’s really amazing to see how everyone is presented the same options but use them in dramatically different ways.

So far, we’ve kept our intended space a secret…any guesses which room we are tackling (besides the major hints with these photos)? Read on →
