  1. BROUGHT TO YOU BY Frasier Fir

    Images: 2nd Truth

    As fellow Minnesotans (and Midwesterners!) can attest, the seasonal change from fall to winter often feels like it happens overnight. One day you are walking in glorious sixty-degree weather with leaves crunching beneath your feet, and, quite literally, the next day sleet is whipping at your face when you walk from your car into your home. …

  2. I’m excited to introduce you all to Rebecca Atwood. Her work caught my eye on Instagram a couple years ago and I’ve been watching her career blossom ever since. Multiple fabrics lines, throws, pillows, and a best-selling book later, it’s clear Rebecca has a knack for taking her art and breathing new life into it. It …

  3. We thought we’d be the type of parents who would be extremely thoughtful about the amount of toys we brought into our home. All they need is a wooden spoon and some boxes, right? Yeah, right. Turns out, Joe and I both love playing with toys as much as August does, and within the first year …

  4. WRITTEN FOR ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST

    I find myself lusting after perfectly tiled, open-shelf kitchens on Pinterest and Instagram far too often. Like multiple times a day. No matter how many kitchens I design, I just can’t get enough! Why is it that the heart of a home always seems to reside in the kitchen where the food is made, heart-to-hearts are had, and …

  5. Watching someone’s career unfold in real time has been a fascinating aspect of “growing up” alongside fellow bloggers and entrepreneurs. Many of the women I’ve watched closely embody traits and styles foreign to my own. I’ve often wondered why that is, and I think it’s because you learn more about yourself not by comparing your work …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. With the news of a baby girl on the way, I couldn’t help but think of how this might affect our entire family’s daily life in every way. I thought of things like – Do we have enough space in our home? How can I redesign the living room to make it more comfortable and functional? Will …

  8. Social media, of any kind, these days is tough. The number of times you are assaulted with headlines you only thought you’d read in The Onion has quadrupled, and I sense it’s really taking a toll on all of us. One of the upsides of all the noise in the news is I’ve returned to seeking …

  9. After the initial stage of daydreaming and planning, accessorizing a room is by far my favorite part of the process. It’s like a puzzle that needs to be solved– one throw pillow or rug at a time. The decor is what really adds life and personality to a room. It’s what turns a house into a …

  10. I can hardly believe that a little over a year ago, I was just getting settled into my new studio. I had one W&D employee, one intern and one freelance photographer sharing the studio space with us. I had recently given birth to August and moved right from labor with the baby into a different kind …

  11. written for Architectural Digest

    Sometimes small living room spaces or corners provide you with just the right amount of room to work with to make it feel truly unique. And although my current home isn’t quite as spacious as I’d like it to be, over the past couple of years I’ve found ways to make it feel cozy, inviting and …

  12. Have you ever been cruising along Instagram when suddenly you see a product that makes your thumb stop in its tracks? That was me with Pampa. I simply HAD TO HAVE that perfect round pillow. I immediately started following them on Instagram and enjoyed learning more about their design influence, product lines, and collaborations with artists …

  13. I can hardly believe it but the trees along River Road in St. Paul are starting to turn golden. Being one of those gals who can’t help but publicly profess my love for all things FALL, I’m already transitioning my home and wardrobe into a cozy little sanctuary. I made Joe go out and buy fire …
