Kitchens are the heart of every home! No matter if you’ve spent the last few hours decorating your dining room for an elegant dinner party or strung up lights in the backyard for family barbecue, it seems to not even matter because everyone always ends up migrating into the kitchen, regardless. So obviously you want your kitchen to be inviting and something all your guests will be talking about. Picking the right counter top, table and lighting seem pretty standard. And for some people that is all they want to change anyways. But if you really want a stand out kitchen then add a splash of interest and color with a one of a kind back splash! There are so many options when choosing a back splash from tile and glass to rustic brick and stone. Backs plashes are a great addition to any kitchen and will help the entire room looked finished and pulled together.
Commonly seen in chic cabin retreat imagery, Pendleton blankets are an American classic when it comes to cold-weather gear. We absolutely love the timeless red, green and yellow striped throws- reminding us that Autumn is right around the corner. Pendleton’s roots began in 1863 when Thomas L. Kay made a transcontinental trek to the west coast and began working in the woolen mills in Oregon. An immigrant from England and a weaver by trade, Thomas had previously worked in various textile mills on the east coast of the United States and eventually went on to open his own woolen mill in Salem, MA. Shortly thereafter, Thomas brought in his daughter Fannie to the family business to act as his assistant. She soon married a man who specialized in manufacturing and retail sales, and the rest is, as they say- history. We can’t get enough of these beautiful, cozy blankets!
While the origin of the bunk bed is unknown, these compact sleep spaces have been around for decades in army barracks, ships and more commonly in the bedrooms of children. Typically constructed with 2 twin beds stacked upon each other, these unique beds make it possible for 2 people to sleep in the same room while maintaining the footprint of only one bed. These days with home decor pressing down the gas pedal on innovation and style- we are seeing some absolutely stunning interpretations of bunk beds!
