10 Bold Upholstered Chairs to Liven Up Your Living Room

When my fiancé and I first moved into our current home, I was obsessed with Scandinavian design. I mean, I was in it.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide Series: Volume 2

In my experience, pretty much any kitchen item makes a perfectly acceptable Mother’s Day gift. Pot holders, coffee cups, aprons; all good.

Font-ed House: Choosing a typography print

So, in framing up the artwork for my bedroom gallery wall the other day, I decided I am sorely in need of a typography print. I looked at my collection and it all felt a little too…pretty.
