  1. I’m very excited to cross Vancouver, BC off my travel bucket list. I visited the beautiful coastal city when I was in middle school and have wanted to go back ever since. While Joe and I have been attempting to get in some much-needed downtime together and enjoy each other before baby #2 makes her debut, the …

  2. Let me tell you what ten days in the country will do to a city gal. It will change you. If you would have told me five years ago I would be craving a tiny home surrounded by woods or sitting along a lake, I would have laughed in your face! But life has a way …

  3. When you live in the northern part of the country, summertime for me is about two things: being outside and hanging with my people. While I love our long winters, May through August are definitely my favorite months for hosting friends and family outdoors. But what if your backyard isn’t really the ideal space to hang? When …

  4. If you’re a decor fanatic like I am, chances are you’re a huge fan of following all of Studio McGee’s endeavors. The married design duo that started their business out of a spare bedroom in 2014 has rapidly grown to 30 employees, over half a million Instagram followers, and a rapidly growing Youtube channel. They’ve now …

  5. There’s something very magical about filling a home with greenery. No matter the space or size, it seems lush, and happy houseplants always know the way to livening up any room. These little guys do everything in their might to lift our spirits, and yet why do so many of us fall short when keeping them …

    More often than I care to admit, I’ve stared at the walls in my home wondering if I can live with my decisions. Not the introspective, life-changing decisions one ruminates on in the middle of the night, but staring at the walls and wondering if I’ve made a horrible mistake. It’s not that I’m indecisive, I’m …

  8. There’s something going on in the southern hemisphere that’s got the design community talking. One of the many benefits of this vast internet of ours is the close proximity to people and businesses thousands of miles away, and this fact has undoubtedly changed the way all of us make and consume things. Our team noticed an …

  9. With a one-year-old in the house, our kitchen can get messy. I’m talking messy here people. Things get left out, baby food gets spilled, and Joe and I can be a bit clumsy in a rush. Our kitchen doesn’t stay messy for long (thanks to Joe and his willingness to pick up after August and myself). Even if …

  10. I’m guilty of selecting a wine based on the design of the label. I’m also guilty of selecting a restaurant based on its decor. One could argue this is research pertaining to my career. I designed labels for wine and liquor for years, and these days I draw a lot of my interior style inspiration from …

  11. I tend to think in absolutes. “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” “If your lawn is the slightest bit overgrown or maybe you still need to remove the winter-themed container garden from your front steps, then definitely do not go in your yard at …

  12. If a good rug can really make a room, then two just might be able to transform it! Layered rugs popped on my radar this year and I’ve been playing around with them in the studio. Putting two or three on top of one another in your living room or bedroom really has a way of adding …

  13. If you’ve been following along with our studio remodel and my basement renovation, then you know how much we love Article. Not only is it Kate and Joe approved, it’s August and Winnie approved, too. The reason we keep coming back to Article for our projects is that they make furniture that’s even more stylish than it is affordable. …
