Pin it Now that the high temps have really kicked in, it's hard to remember that this is the season everyone longs for during the darker, colder months of the year. Ha! If your home doesn't have AC (or you are choosing to leave it off as much as possible) you can feel stuck, especially when it comes to getting a restful nights sleep. READ MORE »

How do you "bring the outside in" when you live in the city and have normal-sized windows? Follow these tips. READ MORE »

Jennifer's Streamlined Simplicity Pin it “This is the one!” I’ve exclaimed firmly to a number of rental agents in my life, after only walking inside a couple of steps. They say there’s no such thing as love at first sight, but when it comes to apartments, I’m a believer. Every single one of my apartment searches have started with me walking through a series of spaces that were okay, nice — even perfectly potential. And they’ve all ended with me calling off the search as soon as I walked through the door of the “one.” I’ve just known instantly for each of the last seven homes I’ve lived in. This is both a good and bad thing. READ MORE »

Gabriel & Grant's Warm Minimalism Pin it The first two steps in our series working toward color confidence involved zeroing in on the colors you love. If your results from those exercises pointed toward a more neutral palette, you probably already know that what sounds simple (neutrals!) when it comes to color isn't always that straightforward in practice. As much as we sometimes aspire to simplify our spaces, sometimes minimalism seems out of reach; restraint is hard to pull off. READ MORE »

You see clean, uncluttered cabinets that could totally be door-less, they're so sleek and organized. This type of kitchen cabinet organizers have secrets to keeping them that way; we're sharing four today. READ MORE »

My cat (not my dad) in front of furniture that my dad has helped me move (books included) from apartment to apartment without complaint 900 (or so) times. Pin it Father's Day has passed this year, but as any child of an ultra-helpful dad can attest, dads (as well as the lessons they've taught us) deserve appreciation all year long. My dad couldn’t give a flying flip about what color the walls are, whether the couch goes with the rug or what kind of flooring is the kitchen. But what he lacks in caring about aesthetics, he has more than made up for in teaching me about how to take care of a home — and they're lessons that have saved me a lot of headache (and heartache) in my life.
