Welcome to our new Weekly Wrap-Up (and our new blog!), where we gather all our favorite happenings from our world and the world wide web to share with you for a little weekend reading and inspiration. Hope you find something that catches your eye, and we’ll see you back here at the same time next week!
Room of the Week
Hello, cozy! This simple but far-from-boring bohemian living room by @sweetriverdesigns is a space we’re dying to curl up in right this very minute. We love the pairing of the wall tapestry with our Fading Herati Medallion rug, which both add just the right amount of pattern and help tie all the colors in the space together.
Follow of the Week
Who loves a good home reno? If your hand is up, give Mackenzie Craven of Craven Haven a follow—she’s an Oregon-based designer who’s building and designing a new home for her young family and documenting the entire process for our viewing pleasure on her Instagram and blog. Expect clever DIYs, dreamy inspiration for her new home, behind-the-scenes nitty-gritty details of the building process, and plenty of snapshots of pretty decor and cute kids.
Links of the Week
We’re getting all the feels from this heart-to-heart with designer and Netflix star Shea McGee of Studio McGee.
Prepare to be mesmerized! We can’t stop watching this super-easy (and cheap!) twisted taper candle DIY, which is one of the more clever things we’ve seen this week.
A California-based blogger turns a dark, outdated fixer-upper into the cozy, light-filled cottage of her (and our!) dreams.
Over on Emily Henderson, a Scandinavian-meets-Japanese-inspired home tour that has beauty around every corner.
So cute! This kids’ closet makeover is one that moms and little ones will enjoy.
Pick of the Week
Our new washable rugs are here and available to order! We’ve had them in the works for awhile, and are so excited to share a mix of traditional, Moroccan, and graphic styles that are perfect for all those “oops” moments that come with kids, pets, and living everyday life. Here are a few things that make them so great: they come as one piece with nonslip backing, they’re spill- and stain- resistant, they’re as beautiful as your typical rug, and (the best part!) you just toss them in the washing machine to clean.
Tip of the Week
How’s your home office holding up? If you’re looking to give yours a refresh, we’ll point you in the direction of this piece, which offers up genius (and easy!) ideas for sprucing up work-from-home spaces of any size. Think a simple way to fake built-ins, organization tips, and so much more.
