DIY Indian Block Printing

Are you familiar with Indian Block Printing? If you’re not sure, chances are you’d recognize it if you saw it. I absolutely love the look and have been searching for Indian block printed everything lately. From curtains to dresses to bedding, it’s such a versatile look and there are countless design options. We wanted to try our hand at the technique, and though we’ve simplified the process quite a bit, we’re thrilled with the end result! We also discovered that there is a treasure trove of Indian blocks available for purchase on Etsy at a reasonable price. This is a great technique to use on items that need a little refreshing: think tea towels or scarves, or you can try it on a piece of fabric and transform it into anything!

Follow the steps and try your hand at DIY Indian Block Printing!

Rainbow Workout Gear + Exercises!

Recently I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of working out and eating healthier. And it’s no cake walk, you guys! Trust me, if there was cake involved, I would be ALL in. Though I have found that having cute, colorful workout gear helps motivate me to get moving. Imagine that 😉 When I came across the shoe color selection Saucony offers, I was absolutely giddy! I couldn’t decide on just one color, so the whole team got a pair so I could live out my rainbow dreams because they come in the loveliest sherbert colors.

Now don’t be mistaken, I’m taking things slow. Nothing too intense or high impact to begin with, so these shoes are great for my long walks and low impact workouts. Of course, I’ll be wearing them all around town with my dresses too! Not only are they cute, but super comfy!

In addition to the shoes, we rounded up our favorite workout outfits to coordinate with our new, revolutionizing RAINBOW work out. Ha! An easy workout in every shade (and letter!) of the rainbow–P(ink), R(ed), O(orange), Y(ellow), G(reen), B(blue)because it’s always easier to remember when there’s a mnemonic device and we’re clearly fans of a rainbow. Plus, who doesn’t want to match their shoes to their scrunchie?

If you’re in need of some motivation to get moving, take a look at the shoes, gear and a few moves we’re trying!

Lars Matisse-Shirt Collection

We’ve been obsessed with graphic tees lately, and they seem to be popping up everywhere. But what qualifies as the ideal t-shirt? We couldn’t seem to find one that perfectly captured the Lars aesthetic: lovely color palette, reference to history, whimsical, you get the gist. The natural solution was to make our own! Introducing the Lars Matisse-Shirt Collection! We teamed up with Cricut to make Matisse-Inspired iron-on decals for t-shirts. Honestly, we’re pretty obsessed with them! Line drawing portraits, fun faces, and shapes—It doesn’t get much better than that! Now you can make your perfect tee all on your own! Which one is your favorite?

Take a look at all the t-shirt styles and download the templates to make your own! Read on →

The House That Lars Built for Winter Water Factory

The house that lars built for Winter Water FactoryThe day has arrived! I’m pleased to announce The House That Lars Built’s collaboration with Winter Water Factory! As a new mother, I was more than excited to team up with this beautiful brand to create clothing that I could comfortably dress myself and Baby J in. Listen, I didn’t have children not to match them! See what I mean?
The house that lars built for Winter Water Factory
Since its conception, I’ve strived to build a distinct identity for The House That Lars Built. I seek out things that emit lovely bursts of whimsy, color, and quirkiness in order to create a more artful life for myself and those I come in contact with. Partnering with Winter Water Factory was a natural dream come true as I’ve been a big fan for many years (here’s proof!), and I’ve been waiting for the day when I could wrap up my child in their ever-so-soft organic cotton goodness.
I hope you love the new line as much as we loved making it. Make sure to tag us in any future photos of you and baby wearing anything from the collection using #LarsforWWF so I can bask in your cute, matching glory! I’ll be right there with you! (please note: the women’s collection will be launching shortly. Stay tuned!)
The collection comes in two color ways and a variety of styles for boys, girls, babies, women, and even accessories so you’re sure to find something for everyone. And stay tuned for sweats for women later on in the season (my favorite of them all),

I’ll be sharing more about the process of the collection later this week, but for now, the shop is live!
