Just kidding. For years upon years, the biggest struggle I’ve had in our living room is the fact that we own a TV. I’m not a huge TV watcher, but we do enjoy family movie night and my husband and kids watch more often than I do. The TV has always been a huge eyesore in the living room, never quite blending in with the decor, until now. Today I’ve partnered with Samsung to introduce The Frame TV and to share how it blends effortlessly into our living room, as if we don’t even own a TV.

Indoor Outdoor Living, Hygge for Summer

A modern-tropical California outdoor living Room.

The Danish tradition of Hygge has become a lot more popular in the states this past winter and I’m really excited about it. Having just attended the Swedish Midsummer celebration here, it really reminded me that the concept of hygge and cosiness can also be applied to summertime festivities as well. Today I’m taking some time to share with you how you can relate hygge to indoor outdoor living, and how you can bring some indoor cosiness to your outdoor space for summer parties, entertaining, or just enjoying some time in the outdoors. Living in California means that our ‘outdoor’ season timeframe is quite large. Where I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, the climate is quite moderate year-round and we love nothing more than to take advantage of our outdoor space.

Small Space Laundry Room Inspiration

Small Space Laundry Room Dreams, the perfect design for a small laundry room or one that's limited on space. It's relaxing, neutral-toned, and minimal.

Since we’ve completed our last big project for the house, I’m moving on to finish up some details on the inside that have been bugging me for awhile. As the main laundry-person in our family of 4 (plus 3 fur babies), I spend a lot of time doing laundry. A lot. I’ve even written lengthy posts about how to care for your clothing, but I don’t get to enjoy laundry in my day-to-day life. Our laundry area is located in the hallway, and it’s not just tiny, it’s closet-tiny. It brings me absolutely no joy to spend any time there, so today I’ve partnered with Samsung to share some inspiration for our new laundry area and hallway. I really want something more functional for us that is also beautiful and enjoyable. It should feel as if it was meant to be there all along instead of someone just tossing a washer and dryer into a hall closet.
