Something a little different and fun today! A couple weeks ago the Delta faucet brand invited me to tour the 2019 HGTV Dream Home in Whitefish, Montana for what ended up being the experience I never knew I needed. I left not only recharged from stretching beyond my interior design inspiration bubble, I also fell in love with Montana pretty much the moment I saw the mountains from the plane. It’s the epitome of winter wonderland this time of year and is simply unreal.Read More
Decorating the bedroom for Christmas is a small but favorite tradition of mine because it simply makes life better. It’s a way to have the season’s cheer surround us at the end of the day and greet us first thing when we wake up. We could also say it’s a way to put to use all the extra decor that didn’t fit anywhere else in the home (this is me, too). Like always, I kept it simple and understated to match the calm vibes of our bedroom, and I’ve partnered with Air Wick® to help set the mood even better with their new holiday scents collection. Read on for a little tour of the room!Read More
This idea has been floating around in my head for a few Christmases now- I’ve been wanting to have ornaments that are personalized and sentimental. Of course all the decor and lights are major to the festive coziness of the season, but nothing matches the warm feels you get from hanging up photos of your favorite memories and people. SO, why not combine photos with Christmas decor for ultimate good holiday vibes? It’s an idea I fully realized once playing around with the IVY Mini Photo Printer from Canon, who I’ve partnered with to share this easy tutorial for how to make your own photo ornaments. Read More
Ahh, my favorite occasion to set the table for. While I consistently keep my table settings simple, the holiday season naturally invokes a whimsy that’s only possible this time of year. It feels most magical, which is why I love it so much! Inspired by the shorter days of the season, I’m going with a moodier table that accompanies the darkness of winter. In partnership with Bed Bath & Beyond, a favorite of mine for being a one-stop-shop for everything I need to entertain in style, read on for how I put this holiday table setting together. Read More
Every year we set up our wonderfully fake tree even though each year I think to myself maybe we should make it a real one next year. We’re not jumping at the chance to spend winter sweeping up pine needles and then deal with disposing the real tree at the year’s end, but we are sorely missing out on the very best benefit of a real tree: the smell. Scent is a major part of the holidays, as much as the lights, music, and Christmas cookies are, and I don’t want to miss getting my maximum fill of olfactory enjoyment during the season that I love it the most. In honor of the sense that most strongly evokes the memories of the holidays, I’ve partnered with Aera to share about their new limited edition Hygge Holiday fragrance collection that’s everything warm and cozy.

We’ve gone over before the importance of having good lighting at home and how it can completely change the look of a room, practically as much as the paint color on the walls can- that’s a big deal. Since then we’ve switched to LED bulbs and never turned back from the energy saving and infinitely better lighting benefits we’ve experienced because of it. But is there a better LED bulb option for even better lighting than what we thought we already had? I partnered with Cree to find out, testing their new generation of LED bulbs (you can find Cree bulbs in the lighting section of your local Home Depot store) and determining what the right bulbs are for the kind of light we love most in our home.
