Jordan's Office Tour with Werrell Woodworks

FB22FECA-552D-4870-A30A-DCF07E0AC925.JPG

It's done! This office space has been a long time in the making, and I'm so ready to share it with you all that I'm busting at the seams! Jordan and I made the design decisions together for this space. He wanted something masculine, monochromatic, and modern (alliteration for the win!) My goal was to make sure everything still felt home-y and inspiring, partly because Jordan also wanted it to be a place where B could come and hang out, just like he did as a kid with his dad. Lots of texture (pillows + rug), plants, photographs of family, and a gorgeous piece of artwork helped soften a lot of the colder vibes this room gave off (Exhibit A: Cement floors - Gorgeous as they may be, make me want to curl up in a fuzzy blanket!)

The piece that completely pulls this room together for us is the custom mountain wood artwork by Werrell Woodworks. Jordan and I got married in Sonoma Valley surrounded by beautiful hills, and we frequently talk about our love of Colorado and mountains. This piece perfectly combined inspiration and warmth, with the cool factor of course. Sam and Cori (the married team that runs the show) went above and beyond for us, and we highly recommend checking their work out for your own home.

Jordan built these shelves himself! We were inspired by the site Love the Room which has tons of DIY videos and inspo with all the building materials you need linked along with the tutorials. 

I styled the shelves with a few plants, modern accents, and personal items. He had tons of personal photos from his old desk space, and I turned some of his favorites into black/white prints to frame and layer on the shelves. I used a mix of black frames, wood frames, and thick white mats to add white space. This is my favorite way of incorporating personal photos without making open shelves look too busy.

We reused a lot of home accents from our house in this space, which was both cost-effective and another way to bring home into the office for Jordan. Some of our pillows from home actually look 10x better in this space thanks to the rug we picked out from Target. It all came together really nicely.

B's favorite spot is the couch area. We sometimes bring lunch in here and watch a favorite show while Daddy works, that is if she's not busy greeting everyone in the office!

His windows are seriously the best for natural light. We originally wanted to put a massive cactus in here, but I didn't feel comfortable with a real one being on the floor (toddler parent life!) and the faux ones were either really odd looking, really expensive, or a bad combination of both. I ended up finding a great deal on this faux Sansevieria plant. Right now there's only three living plants in his office, and they're all cacti high up on the shelves.

Seriously, can you even handle the detail on this piece? It looked so pretty in our living room for the two seconds it was stored in there (before Jordan swooped it away for his office!) The office looks even better than how we imagined it, and B and I love to visit every chance we get.

B's Room Rehaul with B Darling

6836E6E2-98F4-406B-AAE3-0D32D53E6FFB.JPG

I'm so excited to share this reveal of B's room rehaul! When we moved into our new house last year, her room took a bit of a bit of a backseat to other projects. I missed how special her room was in the old house - Jordan had painted big gray and white stripes on one wall, and it just felt so "B" to me. I wanted to recreate that same feel, but with some modern touches to match the rest of our home's vibes.

The biggest thing I wanted to do was make another statement wall, and B Darling was the answer. They have tons and tons of removable wallpaper and decals to choose from, and we loved the fact that it was easy to install. After creating three (yes three) Photoshop mockups of different wallpaper styles with her existing furniture and color scheme, we settled on this geometric pattern. I was a little nervous we would have to repaint the walls to match the wallpaper, but this specific pattern is off-white and subtly took on the tones of the gray paint underneath it. So it matched perfectly in the end! It took us about two hours to install, and that was with B running around while we installed it. It was a million times easier than regular wallpaper, and if there were any bubbles or mismatched lines, it was really simple to pull up and smooth out. You can shop their removable wallpaper options here.

This little area is different from her original nursery, as well! We got the dollhouse shelf from IKEA, and the Cactus pillow is from Bla Bla Kids. (More products linked at the bottom!) I love that she has her favorite books within reach, and it can be used as an actual dollhouse later if she wants.

We kept a lot of the same furniture and decor from her original nursery (blog post with pics here!), and just added little modern details like the green plants and woven wall hanging above her crib. And if you've been following me for awhile, you may recognize the rug from the playroom! It's basically musical home decor at my house. Things are always moving around from room to room.

B's room finally feels "finished" and I love how unique it is for her to grow into! I've linked the products you see here in the widget below. If you can't find something specific, leave me a comment and I'll link it for you!

Playroom Updates with Lorena Canals

89EFBAA0-AA3C-46F7-BBAA-D58F6E289733.JPG

It's only been five months since I posted about B's playroom (original post here), but so many updates have happened thanks to Christmas and B getting just a few months older. She's been so into her baby dolls lately, and also started "pretending" to cook and eat with an interactive picnic basket we got for Christmas. 

All of this reminded me that my parents were holding onto a hand-me-down play kitchen from a good friend of the family. So we dug it out of their basement one weekend, found the perfect spot for Chef B's new kitchen, and I did a small rehaul on it (original linked here!). I painted the red and blue parts with Annie Sloan chalk paint to better match the playroom's color scheme. The "metal" parts were originally silver, and I spray painted them gold because kids' kitchens should always reflect the too-expensive, trendy home updates we all dream of. 

Naturally, this new corner needed a little spice rack and framed print. The shelf was my mom's, and I just painted it white to match. The print is from Alephant Studio, and each letter of the alphabet is carefully designed to have a modern look. Notice how "U" is for "Unicorn"... that's one of my favorites, and I also love the illustration for letter "D!" Can you guess it? 

My mom painted a few pieces of doll furniture with white chalk paint so B could have a place to feed and nap her babies ("Nut Nut's" if we're being specific.) Sometimes B even climbs in to the cradle and highchair just to test things out for herself. We like to put her babies to "sleep" before naps sometimes, and she likes to pat the babies and say "Nigh nigh."

The playroom itself has changed a little too. We got a gorgeous new machine-washable rug from Lorena Canals for the space, which is perfect for this playroom's needs. This rug is made with all-natural dyes and contains no VOC's. It's also surprisingly soft and comfy - like really all kids' rugs should be! I had a hard time choosing between the designs on their site because they're all so on-trend, but I love the one for this space. It's a great neutral, and it doesn't compete with some of the bolder colored toys that we have scattered in the non-photographed corners of the room ;).

P.S. I moved the pink rug into B's room, and we're planning on doing a small redesign in there that I can't wait to share!

This room has been such a lifesaver in the winter months. We come up here every day, and Chef B makes all kinds of soup for me. Did you notice the letterboard's Soup of the Day? B's always making Pepper Soup - it's her chef specialty!
