Northern Cliffs

March 22, 2018

ebb + flow :: northern cliffs

If anyone deserves a high five this week, it’s the Red Head. Between the dust, fumes, swollen ankles and fatigue I haven’t been in the basement helping with our re-model much at all. You can usually find me perched in bed writing baby shower thank you notes and frantically making to-do lists. Good news, though, we settled on a paint color for the basement living room (after our first attempt fell short). The winner? Benjamin Moore Northern Cliffs! Carpet is getting installed on Saturday, we’re moving some furniture on Sunday (I’ll be supervising) and I can’t wait for our first movie night down there. Bring on the microwave popcorn!

Chilly Night

December 12, 2017

ebb + flow :: cozy night

Welp, yesterday’s post was definitely foreshadowing. The Red Head and I are doing some electrical work tomorrow that could leave us without power for the night. Give me all the blankets, hot cocoa, warm fireplaces, and space heaters. That also means no Internet for a bit so I’ll catch you later this week when we’ve exited the Stone Age!

Up in Lights

October 6, 2017

ebb + flow :: lights

With only a few warm-ish weekends left in the year, the Red Head and I are on a mission to make serious progress in the yard this weekend. Between laying pavers, hauling sand, feeding the willing helpers (thank you, friends and family!) and digging trenches, I’m dreaming about our patio next spring and the addition of some cafe lights. I think they’ll be the perfect addition to our outdoor oasis!

The Red Head and I are probably about a year off from finishing our kitchen and den but I am going to campaign for the next twelve months for a bold wallpaper to make an appearance, like my favorite above. I’ll keep you posted on the campaign every step of the way and follow along in real-time here!

Shoot Time

ebb + flow :: shoot time

You wouldn’t guess it by looking outside just yet but spring is around the corner! I’m heading into the studio for the next few days to shoot the Mall of America spring look book alongside some incredibly talented folks and can’t wait to share how this one comes together! Hang out here for some #bts sneak peeks! And I’ll catch you later this week after the dust settles!

A Maze

ebb + flow :: electrical map

Now that the Red Head and I have a full weekend back in town we have quite the ambitious house to-do list ahead for the next two days. I’ll be painting and podcasting the day away tomorrow while the boys attempt to rough in some seriously outdated and seriously confusing electrical. If the map above is any indication of what we’re getting into I might stock up on wine after work today as well. Wish us luck and lots of patience!

White + Bright

January 4, 2017

ebb + flow :: painting

Tonight’s agenda consists of a trip to Ace Hardware to get some more paint and painter’s tape and then an evening with podcasts and what I’m hoping is the final coat of the white paint on our dining room trim! Getting that stuff out of 1970 was a lot of work but it made the space so much brighter and current! Once the trim is done I’m going to add bead board below the chair rail (goodbye green!), install some art and call it good until we remodel our kitchen. Trying not to get too far ahead of ourselves with projects! Wish me luck and let me know if I have paint in my hair tomorrow, OK?
