Bringing Fashion to Your Home with Kate Spade (ShopStyle x CFDA Fashion Targets Breast Cancer)

*I was notified today 10/19 that several states have been added to the list of states that are not included in the promotion, including North Dakota. Please see details at the end of the post. I am very disappointed by this news. Today’s post combines a few of my favorite things – fashion, home decor and supporting a good cause. Today through Sunday, Oct. 23 I will be donating 10% of my net profit from my ShopStyle affiliate link sales to the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign. While I am allowed to cap my donation, I have elected to maximize my contribution. With the proceeds from the campaign, the CFDA Foundation will provide meaningful help to women concerned about and/or diagnosed with breast… Read More

Coveting Now – Modern & Brass Ceiling Fan

I’ve already revealed the designs and finish selections for the playroom, bar and the guest bedroom, but until now I have only shared a single Instagram post hinting at whats going to happen in the basement bathroom. My virtual silence does not mean I’m not excited about it. The flooring from Cement Tile Shop we selected may be my favorite finishing detail I have ever picked. Check it out below. It looks like art!  Hopefully it is timeless art, not something that is super dated in 10 years or that wears poorly. I think that the fact that it is black and white will keep it on the… Read More

A Preview of the Guest Bedroom Bunkbeds

Our guest bedroom may be a problem. I think I’m going to have a hard time getting E to sleep in her own room after it’s complete. She is already talking about climbing the bunk bed and loves running into the tiny room under the stairs. It’s the bedroom of sleepover dreams! Before I get to the progress pictures, here is a refresher of our inspiration. Unlike our bar, the dimensions of the room in the inspiration picture are very close to our rooms. Even the window is in the same place.  Daren really has a thing for bunk beds so he is just as pumped as E. He’d like to have enough kids to have to put bunk beds… Read More
