Stairway Gallery Wall

You may already know that the back stairwell in our house is one of my very favorite things about our home, it reminds me of my grandparents house growing up, and of course, Home Alone! πŸ˜‰ We are so excited to be sharing our new gallery wall that we hung in partnership with Framebridge, it has totally livened up the space & made it feel so cozy!

Here is a before shot of the kitchen I took earlier this Spring:

And here is the new gallery wall!!


It was so fun picking out photos for this space because we wanted to keep it super informal & eclectic, and use photos that mean something to us. My favorite is the family photo that Harper drew of us, she was so proud to see it hanging on the wall! Hanging kids artwork in frames is so fun & will be cherished forever, a perfect mother’s day gift if you are still shopping!! We also framed a bunch of our favorite Instagrams and the most darling custom watercolor of our family done by Sophie & Lili.Β I wanted to stick with a few of the same frames to keep it somewhat cohesive, I mostly used the Irvine Slim (white), Mercer (black), Sonoma (wood) and theΒ new Camden (gold).

I can’t wait to add more to the wall & eventually take itΒ all the way up the stairs!

Happy Friday & Cinco de Mayo, friends!! XO


Claire’s Room

We have really been trying to stick to the “one room at a time” rule since we moved into our houseΒ late last Summer.Β We finally got around to finishing Claire’s room & I am so excited to share some photos. We started with painting the room, I knew we wanted a soft sage/mint color, and we ended up going with Gray Embrace by Valspar. I am obsessed with the color, and we decided that we are going to use it in our downstairs powder bath that we are tackling this weekend!

Most of her stuff was from her old nursery, we used Ellie’s old crib sheet, a neon heart print that I have had forever but just wasn’t sure where to hang it & added a few new accessories like the fun swan on the wall! I plan to still add a few things to the walls and have a fun pom mobile to hang from the ceiling by the chair, but love how cozy & fun it is, perfect for little Bear Claire!

She loves to stuff her blankets & toys in these baskets and pull them back out again, or just sit on the floor and play with her sound machine for half an hour. As we inch our way closer to two years old, this little girl has just gotten sweeter by the day. And she is looking so much more like Harper lately, don’t you think?!

Hope you enjoyed the room & maybe gained a bit of inspiration for a room in your home – currently craving all the green walls!! Happy Monday!! XO

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We are so happy it’s the weekend!! We are getting our very first glimpse of summer around here (and I swear I have friends that are still getting snow!) the girls have been happily living outside with their favorite things, sidewalk chalk & slip-n-slide.

I wanted to share a few Friday Favorites that I have had bookmarked for a while, hope you love all of these as much as I do!

Cinco de Mayo is just a week away, we always celebrate with some homemade tacos & margaritas, obsessing over these mexican street corn recipes & can’t wait to make them.

I just bought this dress for our beach trip next month, can’t wait to wear it all Summer long!

This mermaid DIY project for kids is beyond cute, we are totally saving our egg cartons to do these before Summer!

The girls got these fruity sequin tutus for Easter & I’m obsessed. Harper wants to wear hers every day, and I secretly want one in my size.

Our new favorite blanket shop for kids & babies, I can’t get over how gorgeous these prints are!!

My favorite sandals for the girls, they are so comfy and easy for them to put on, on sale for under $20!

And last but not least, If you haven’t already seen the movie SING, it is a must, so cute for both kids & adults, my girls are obsessed & the music is amazing!!

Happy weekend friends!! XO
