Mary’s New Leather Sofa

Some of you may recall a post I wrote a while back about My New Green Sofa. Well, this time around I wanted to talk about a little something called Mary’s New Leather Sofa, or, as we’ve come to call it, the big comfy cozy couch. Seriously, it’s great! I could nap on it for days (on one or two occasions, I might have even done just that).  Read on →

One of my very favorite family traditions has been our yearly Christmas card. It’s that rare time of year when I can get Paul in front of the camera to document our family’s growth. Pre-photo generally tends to be a little stressful: organizing outfits, finding a location yadda yadda, then there’s the actual time in front of the camera which usually looks something like us bribing Jasper with some type of treat to get the shot (zoom in!). But man oh man the joy of looking through those photos once Jane (our in-house photographer) sends them back to us is twelvefold. Read on →

DIY Colorful Baby’s Breath Wreath

With Halloween long gone and Thanksgiving on the horizon we are beginning our decorations for the season, starting with this lovely baby’s-breath wreath! Maybe you have seen the amazing colorful baby’s-breath arrangements lately? We’re digging it! We had to get on board so we put a little Lars spin on it and voila! The baby’s breath wreath was born.  This subtle rainbow palette on the gentle baby’s breath is the perfect welcome to your Thanksgiving guests and simple is an understatement for putting this beauty together!

Wrapping paper in Lars’ House!

New Christmas wrapping paper from The House That Lars BuiltAnyone remember a few months ago when I talked to you on Instagram stories about the idea of wrapping paper in our shop? Well, you were all so encouraging and enthusiastic about the prospect of Lars Wrapping paper in your home this holiday season that we went ahead and created the line!

The line was design by the lovely Monica Dorezwinski (check out her prints in our shop!), but final decisions were made by the members of our Lars family (i.e.: you guys!) via Instagram stories. We were neck and neck on a few designs but these guys proved victorious and each ended up winning by the landslide!
