The days are getting longer and sunnier, and we’re spending almost all of our time at home. Most of our isolation has been spent in our bright (and now open – space to play!) living room and on our patio. And now that our bedroom is finally coming together, we …

If you saw our living room six months ago, you would have thought it was mostly done. And it was, but then my husband and I became partners at Anecdote and not incorporating pieces from our store in our home didn’t make any sense to us. I started choosing pieces from …

This is probably the least technical and potentially least-helpful “how to” post that will ever be written, but I think it might help those of you who like me, want to hang an “imperfect” gallery wall. Gallery walls can be a little daunting but they really don’t have to be …

When I work from home, I spend my days in my home office/guest room. It’s the 3rd bedroom in our home right next to Margot’s room. This room cozy, quiet, and gets good light and I’ve loved working here, but in the coming months, I’m going to turn it into …

When we bought our house, there were some updates we wanted to make so it would feel more like our home. It mostly came down to paint, lighting, and window treatments, but the bathrooms needed a little work. They were technically “finished” but we love interiors (so much that we’re …

Now that we’ve been in our house for over a year, it’s time to start sharing more of it! When we moved into our house, we planned on making the basement a space that felt like an extension of our home, and the part I was most excited about was …

Last week, I searched my blog for the full home tour of our Chicago condo and I’m not sure how it happened but I never got around to posting the full tour. Seriously, how? I shared a post with links to most of what we bought and will include those …

I’m so excited to finally give you a (mini) tour of our first house. As someone who never thought about leaving downtown Chicago, I am happy to say that I love having a house and that I really enjoy the quiet and slower pace out here. It’s been so nice …

We're back from California and tonight will be our first night in our new home. And since I'm starting over after selling almost all my furniture to my landlord, I thought I'd recap the last time I moved into a home with less than a handful of pieces of furniture. Because …

We moved our things over to the new place a few days ago and leave for California today, returning the 25th. Hopefully to a livable home. Here’s a peek at what our place looks like right now, minus the “kitchen” which is still an empty room. The walls are all being painted Farrow and Ball …

Last year, I moved into a small two bedroom apartment in West Town and stayed there for few months before moving into my current apartment. It was my first place with a small bonus room that I could turn into and office, which was something I had always wanted. There wasn’t a photo …

Here’s a look at my third Chicago apartment, a 2-story West Town coach house that I shared with my Everygirl cofounder and our three dogs. This is the biggest place I’ve ever lived in–2 stories, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a huge courtyard. It was also the only time I’ve ever had a roommate.

I recently shared my home tour on The Everygirl, and now it’s time to show you how it all came together as I did with my last apartment. Decorating my second Chicago apartment was a process. I saw lots of potential but have to tell you–it did not happen overnight.
