Making it Yours 7: Window Daybed

It’s been far too long since the last Making it Yours (MiY) series! I’m back at it, this time with the Window Daybed.

MiY is all about the way a piece of furniture can see you through several rooms and several phases of your life. It’s not just about the furniture, it’s about the way furniture can fit into our lives and become something more, something versatile, even something sentimental.

Check in later today to see the daybed get its start in a bedroom for a young boy.

Honor Roll

Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.


I also write for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here’s what I’ve been sharing there…

  • This iPad book, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, is amazing. The story is really sweet too (it makes me a little weepy). Take a look at out how they made it.
  • The new IKEA catalog is out! Browse the whole thing and see the small-space inspiration that went into it.
  • Personalized plates for kids. (The milk and cookies one is my favorite.)
  • Colin Meloy (of the Decemberists) and his wife, illustrator Carson Ellis, have teamed up on a chapter book: Wildwood.
  • I think Eleanor would love wearing these! Think I should get them for her?
