For those of you who don’t know, our Sunroom use to be our screened in porch, and we converted it a little over one year ago. Our dryer vent came out the back of the house onto our porch and exited out the side- (contractor mistake during the build/remodel) but when it came time to...

Our Master...

        • Hello! My name is Shyla of loveshyla.com and I came to know you around 2016/17 when you were selling beautiful things in your shop. I purchased gold measuring spoons, which are still my favorite and sole spoons and an egg crate which is in use on my counter since. I am inspired by your clean and crisp, natural style and friendly nature. Keep doing what you’re doing. It’s a joy to follow and make friends here! Love, Shyla ReplyCancel

          Love your sunroom- looks beautiful! I love this rug, but I can’t figure out it’s true colors- in your photos it looks more blue, but it’s described as olive? How would you describe the colors in person? ReplyCancel

          • Thank you Christeen! The edges of our rug is more navy while the inside is more olive! We have seen variations of this Loloi Rug in Gold and Red, but ours is definitely printed more navy and olive.ReplyCancel

        • […] Our Master Bedroom is small, so we wanted this dresser to look seamless in the room and not look like it takes up too much space. After giving our walls a fresh coat of paint, we decided to use the leftover paint to give this dresser a makeover. We know many of you like the raw wood look, but to us, it just wasn’t blending with our Modern Cottage aesthetic. You can view our Inspiration Board for our Master Bedroom, here. […]ReplyCancel
