Freestyle Friday

 A lot happened this week. We finished shiplapping our basement ceiling. A brick wall was installed. We picked up some rustic beams for our bar. We finalized our cabinet designs, and our guest bedroom has been sailing along. This weekend we are taking a break from design, unless I get swept into West Elm’s awesome sale…

West Elm is having their Friends+Family sale, meaning everything (including sale items!) is an additional 20% off with the code FREESHIP20. They are having a bunch of other sales, so you can stack the 20% off coupon on top of already marked down items to get amazing deals.

Shop my picks below (All on sale even without the discount code!)

What do you think? Should we all put down our paint brushes and grab the bleach?

We put in an ordered with our friends Amy and McKane from Jute Home Co. for a custom coffee table. You can see our inspiration pictures here and here. They are a super talented couple, and I’m not just saying that because I’ve been friends with Amy since we were 18. Amy decorates homes and holds adorable markets full of chic rustic decor. The next one is coming up Oct. 7-8 in Alexandria, MN. McKane builds beautiful furniture pieces like this table.

Shop for a Cause

Daren and I attended a wonderful and fun event last night benefiting our local March of Dimes. It’s always fun to dress up and go on a date. It’s a bonus when it helps your community. You can donate to the cause here. Shop my dress here.

I’ve heard amazing things from friends about Tuft & Needle, so we ordered a queen mattress for our guest bedroom. I can’t wait to unbox it!

This home may be my new dream home.


I was inspired by Chris Loves Julia, who was inspired by House of Jade, to layer entry rugs. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Shop my plaid rug here. It’s the 2×3.

How amazing is this stairwell gallery wall? Follow us on Pinterest here.

Happy weekend!
