Ruggable: A 2-Layer Washable Area Rug for the Playroom

I always blamed the kids for our dirty carpet.But it wasn’t just them. It’s my husband who refuses to take off his work boots before he enters the house and it’s the dogs who let’s be honest, would rather pee on my rug than go outside when it’s cold and raining. Since we live in Seattle, that became a problem.

Organic Cotton Bedding – Breathable, Comfortable, and Beautiful

Cotton is quite possibly the best fabric on earth. It’s a natural fiber from a biodegradable and renewable source, and when it’s grown organically, it’s as close to perfection as it gets.

It’s so important to reduce the number of chemicals and toxins we expose our bodies to.

Boys Bedroom Decor: Ocean-Themed Room Ideas

Earlier this summer, we got the bright idea to move our newly-one-year-old into his four-year-old older brother’s room. We live in a three-bedroom rental and I desperately wanted my office / craft room / library back, and the boys initially loved sharing a room with each other — I loved hearing them giggle together in the morning.

Sauder: Ready-to-Assemble Furniture Made in the USA

Am I the only one that has trouble selecting furniture? I swear I spend hours and sometimes days before I commit to buying something new. I suppose mostly because I know I’m going to have to live with my choice for a long time. But mostly because I tend to buy pieces when the need arises so instead of a huge makeover from one design to another, I transition piece by piece.

Outdoor Entertaining and Dining with Bobby Flay and Kohl’s

Spring and summer. How I love those two seasons. I think I start looking forward to them the minute the weather turns cold and dark here in Seattle. We have so few really great weather days that when we do, we like to take advantage of them. We love outdoor entertaining and that usually means dining on the deck as often as possible because everything tastes better outside – I swear! But when it’s raining and cold, it’s time to bring the party inside!

Family Room Ideas – Add Color and Texture

It’s amazing how time flies, when my husband and I bought our home six years ago we were so excited to transform our 1950’s house into our own personal sanctuary. We had big ides on how we could improve the function of the house by adding or remodeling our home to fit our needs and desires. Having been a homeowner for some time now, I am beginning to realize that all of our ‘big and shiny’ ideas could easily become an afterthought unless we start slowly tackling them.
