It is fun to see what you guys are drawn to in the Market. Creating a curated shop of my current favorites was a bit of an experiment…one that I am so glad I did. There has been such a great response.
More important than sales, I am so intrigued by which items [...]
When we left off in Part 1, I completed and installed the bench frame and added batting to the front edge of the frame. I gave you a sneak peek at the foam on the bench. So, let’s pick up there.
First let’s talk money. The wood for [...]
Hooray for garage sales! Every year my city has a huge garage sale weekend. Last year I held my own failed garage sale. This year I decided to just go garage saling with my mom. I found some AMAZING things. I kept saying, “If I [...]
So, a sweet reader asked last week if I was still planning to share DIY projects. The answer was a big fat, “Yes!” The thing is, last week I had a lot going on. Not only did I launch Teal & Lime Interiors and Teal & Lime Market, but I [...]
Earlier this week I alluded to a surprise. Well, I have worked on another launch. This one wasn’t quite as labor intensive as the Teal & Lime Interiors site, but I am equally as excited about it.
I am passionate about recommending great home decor and furniture. I am constantly shopping from the best sources [...]
I am peeing-my-pants-excited to share this dresser makeover with you. It has been a long time in the works. Sadly, finishing it kept getting de-prioritized in favor of other projects for my studio. Now it is finally done and it is awesome!
This dresser was sort of bonus. We bought a [...]
I would love to wait until this area is finished before showing it to you, but I got an amazing deal on this table and want to share before it’s unavailable.
In the angled nook in our basement, we plan to create a game table area. I want to make built-in benches with lots of [...]
Many of you have asked for a home tour, and I aim to please. I shot this video on Monday, which is the day of the week when our house is pretty much at it’s cleanest. Note: I said cleanest, not clean. I am not sure with two little boys that our house is ever [...]
I just added a bunch of new mood boards to the gallery. While I was uploading them, I noticed some trends or repeat recommendations. All my mood boards are custom and unique, but sometimes I find furniture or decor that is so great, I can’t help but recommend it more than once. Some of these [...]
Happy Friday! I am home with both my littles today for Good Friday. We will be playing lots of Star Wars and Legos. Maybe I will be able to sneak in a few minutes to thumb through these glossies.
I went on a little glossy magazine binge the other day. I stopped by the magazine [...]
It finally feels like the furniture plan for our living room is complete. It has been a long journey with lots of changes, but we made it. The room is fully furnished. We can comfortably seat lots of adults for entertaining. The finishing touch was definitely the Boden Wing [...]
I am not a fan of traditional wing chairs. But, modern updated wing chairs are a big trend now. I have become obsessed.
Since we took down the christmas tree, we have had a big empty space in the living room. When we moved in we put a day bed there, but it was too [...]
The counter is in. It is my dream come true…a wall to wall workspace!
I had to customize the counter, because my beloved Martha Stewart craft space cabinets are 28″ deep. Standard counter depth is 24″. I knew I wanted a wood-tone planked look. It wasn’t until we started using bamboo [...]
As much as I love window shopping, I thought it would be nice to share what I actually spend money on for my home. The What I Bought series is a way for me to share what I buy on my home shopping trips.
They recently opened new World Market stores across the Twin Cities. [...]
My source list is like gold. It is my life line for my custom mood board service. I don’t regularly share source lists for my client mood boards, but I am not trying to be sneaky or secretive. A source list really doesn’t do anyone any good if they don’t know how to use it.
