in my bag: wyoming

I’m packing my bags again… this time for Wyoming! My sister lives there with her family so I am heading over for a little wild west adventure but mostly to meet my new nephew, and snuggle that little peanut.

It has already snowed a few times at their house so I am bringing along some of my coziest.

home progress: in the living room

Look what came back from the framers! Our very first piece of art hanging up in the new house and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out (especially with how it looks with that rug).

living room progress // smitten studio // sharon montroseAs you may remember, I dropped my new print off at before even getting a chance to take a good look at it, so it was realllly exciting to pick it up all framed and in its full flamingo glory.

I am also happy to have at least one tiny corner of the house kind of done-ish! I dug through a few boxes in the garage to bring in a some of my treasured little pieces and styled the corner so that amongst all of the madness I can look there and see how the house will eventually take shape when more things are finished.

To re-cap what we’ve done in the living/family room so far, we have:
1. busted through and opened up two walls
2. pulled out carpeting
3. laid new wood flooring
4. sanded down existing wood flooring and stained the old & new to match
5. painted
6. added a new heating system

from the weekend: parties, hikes, & nesting

After recovering from quite the epic Halloween party, (complete with fire dancers!) I peeled off my fancy eyelashes and out of my  to get back to work on the house this weekend. While running errands I saw this old Ford truck that was the best color, I totally have a thing for this peachy/coral lately, it even fits right into my inspiration color palette for the house too.

On sunday we went for a hike at one of our favorite LA parks, Will Rogers State Park. The heavy fog made for the most beautiful & slightly eerie light. The dogs were loving it as well, if you look close you’ll see Cracker taking in the view too. :)

Hope you had a great weekend.

home progress: kitchen demo & re-build

We’ve been getting a lot of help with this renovation by hiring subcontractors, but since my parents came to help out recently, Rupe and I took a couple days off of work and we all went full speed ahead on the kitchen.

kitchen-demo-sinkLiterally everything AND the kitchen sink went out the door and we started the process of re-building the new. See the demolition progression after the jump…


pattern spy: indigo dyed

Dip dyed, tie dyed, or shibori, no matter the process, I am loving the results.
