Top 5 favorite interior designers right now

With the algorithms changing all the time on social media, I was starting to get really bummed out. You too? Instagram was showing me stuff that I wasn’t inspired by and it was filling my eyes with things I was disinterested in, which may seem benign or petty, but even digital real estate fills up your mind and bandwidth and it was taking up too much of it.

I resolved to only follow accounts that I find inspiring or want to support and unfollowing accounts that didn’t align. It’s been about a year of this adjustment and I’ve noticed that I’m much more inspired by what I consume. I’m constantly bookmarking inspiration and ideas for projects in fashion, interior design, and more, so much so that I now share this inspiration on a weekly column on stories (tune in here to see it!) and I’m finding it really exciting. I mean, the constant algorithm changes are still SO LAME, but at least my creative juices are flowing.

I don’t know if it’s just the backlash against a decade of white walls and minimal interiors, but all of a sudden I’m starting to see rooms full of textures, colors, and shapes and I AM LOVING IT! I haven’t been this inspired in a long time so I thought I’d share some of my favorite interior designers right now as interior design is one of my favorite sources of inspiration. Read on →

How to monogram everything!

On my trip to Denmark in March, I spotted some adorable tote bags, coin purses, and handkerchiefs at one of their “dollar stores”. Listen, their “dollar stores” rarely have anything that’s actually a dollar, but you don’t even notice the exact price because everything at these dollar stores is well-designed and soooo cute. I LOVE walking through their mazes (think a smaller version Ikea) and classical music playing. It’s dark and full of surprises at every turn. It’s so great. I thought it’d be fun to buy a bunch of them as souvenirs for my team and friends and add monograms to EVERYTHING! I’m on a huge monogram kick lately.

In an ideal world, if I didn’t have a baby to wrangle, I would have embroidered them on the plane, but it’s now June and I’m FINALLY done with them. I showed a little sneak peek on Stories of what I was up to and got a lot of questions about the monogram process so I thought I’d share it with you. Here’s how to monogram EVERYTHING! AND, our own custom monogram font. Ye haw!  Read on →

DIY Fourth of July Bunting

Last week, we were taking our Lars team shots outside on the front lawn of our new studio.

While basking in the sun outside our dreamy white house we realized we might have the white house! No, not that one, but the beautiful white detailing really makes it the perfect spot for some excellent Fourth of July decorations! We’ve been in love with the historical feel of our home even before we moved in, and thought it was finally time we put that to use. It’s the ideal place for some classic decorations, and you can’t go wrong with the red, white, and blue! Kassie, our project manager, mentioned her love of bunting and it was decided. Nothing says the Fourth like bunting on the porch! And in paper? Cheap AND easy!

I mean, you could buy them for hundreds of dollars OR you could make them for $5. The choice is yours 🙂
