Working on the laundry room. What day is it? What time is it? I pretty much live in there now, emerging only to eat or to pick up more materials. SOS (Send Over Snacks).
Honor Roll, shall we?
My favorite spaces are the ones that have come together over time.* Brittany of The House That Lars Built has upgraded her apartment’s kitchen bit by bit over time and shared all of the details (photos above and below). It’s inspiring to see how smaller changes add up, as most of us can’t renovate a whole kitchen at once.
* Which reminds me, I left my last Making it Yours edition unfinished. Whoops. Look for that soonish.
The Tilton Fenwick for Hygge & West wallpaper collection is here! I thought the one with snakes (Soldo) would be my favorite, but Angelina might have it beat.
Hello, color blocked hallway and wallpapered ceiling. Looking so very good.
My pixie has finally grown out enough for me to do the only updo I know: the Gibson tuck/roll! Bobby pins work, but Goody Spin Pins make it super easy.
I’ve been on a beauty kick lately. I picked up Urban Decay’s Naked Palette last week, joking as I paid that it had better make me look beautiful because I didn’t really plan on buying $50 worth of eyeshadow that day. Um, it kind of did. I learned how to do eye makeup! In my late thirties! What a thrill.
Danish artist Thomas Dambo has finished his trolls installation at Morton Arboretum! Looking forward to checking them out in person with the kids.
All right. I’m taking the boys for haircuts today and then, you guessed it, back to working on the laundry room for me! Have a great weekend.

I am seriously considering the Angeline paper for my dining room and pairing it with the Bruno in the passage way to the kitchen, leading off the dining room. My husband’s name is Bruno and our attached powder room is deep navy, walls and ceiling.

I really love those blue cabinets!

That Angelina paper in laurel is beautiful…Although I do love the sneakiness of the snake in the other design. Your commitment to that laundry room is admirable! I fear I would have caved and hired a professional by now. All the snacks & encouragement to you!!

Gibson tuck is one of my very favorites! I’ve started doing it vertically for a very lazy semi-french twist.
