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 →

Has it opened your eyes to the art women have made and ARE making all over the world? Pretty amazing, right? We’ve got some questions below and fabulous art printable for you! This month, our poster and book mark were illustrated by one of our favorite artists, Australian artist and designer, Beci Orpin, who leads the way in collage art and bright and quirky products and illustrationgs (pssst–you HAVE to check out her new portfolio site. It’s a piece of art!) We’ll be featuring an interview with Beci on Sunday, so stay tuned! 

Beci illustrated a quote from fine artist, Bobbie Burgers, that reads “be willing to destroy” because we all should be, no?!  Read on →

Floral installation on The House That Lars Built

It’s been warm(er) and sunny(ier) here the last few days and Mother Earth is teasing us for spring. Please tell it is so! We’re craving the fresh blossoms, sweet smells, and bright colors that come in the next few months! Bring on the garden parties, you know?  We couldn’t help but dream of future dinners on these Lenox Trianna Blush dishes framed by a gorgeous floral installation. They’re perfect! Classy, elegant and the perfect shade of pink.

How to paint lime wash with Pure and Original Paint

We recently released a new collection of home goods in partnership with interior designer, Meta Coleman, and today she’s sharing a peek into her new main floor. Meta’s home is constantly evolving stylistically as she grows and I love seeing the process into how she brings it altogether. She gathers inspiration from her favorite artists and travels to create a truly one of a kind home.

Today she’s going into detail about the new colors in her house in partnership with Pure and Original Paint, her lime wash company of choice. Lime wash has the most lovely texture and it’s been something she’s been experimenting with the last couple of years. I’m excited to let you in on this technique with you!  – Brittany
