Who are your favorite Instagram accounts and do you watch their stories? I follow instagrammers who make me smile or inspire me. Do you blog or have Instagram? Please share your links! We can use some more beauty and laughter in the world! I'm such a fan of Julianna Zobrist. She's a muscian who knows her own style! She happens to be married to Chicago Cubs' Ben Zobrist. I've read the book they wrote together and loved reading about their love stories and how their careers began. Their family is adorable and seem to have the same personal style as... Continue reading

Just bought my ticket to see The Minimalists in Madison, Wisconsin! So great to see them when they are on tour. This photo is from the first time they were on tour and visited Milwaukee in 2011. Look at this small group who showed up to talk all things minimalism with Josh and Ryan. What a great night! Will you be seeing them on their 2017 tour? Continue reading

As I pare down my belongings even further in 2017, I'm keeping in mind a few things: the Minimalists' idea of "just in case" (getting rid of things I think I need if I can replace it easily within 20 miles for under $20); Marie Kondo's method of keeping only what brings me joy (practical items bring me joy too!); and also determining if I'd would rather have the clear space in my apartment or keep the item. Clear space usually wins. It's dozens of small choices a week that keep my condo from looking like an episode of the... Continue reading

Hello! It's been awhile only because I'm on "beautiful photo overload" on instagram (personal) and instagram (for this blog), and I don't want to post just any ol' house! {If you're on instagram, please comment with your link so we can all enjoy your photos!) Stumbled on this cute Chicago home with character and clean lines. She describes her tendency to stock up and has to learn that slight hoarding isn't necessary. The photos speak for themselves. Adorable home. She says, "On letting go: I have come to a point in my life where I realize I don’t have to... Continue reading

I've long been a fan of Ingrid Jansen's style and work. I'm particularly smitten with her kitchen these days. She took a plan cabinet door and turned it into the cutest pinboard. Then she organized her beautiful dishes on an antique serving cart. Beautiful. All images are copyright wood & wool stool and used with permission from Ingrid Jansen. Continue reading

My friend Gina and I sometimes wish our homes looked something like creative store displays or showrooms that we've seen. My list of retail-room-inspiration with an industrial chic edge would include these locations. Photographer Paulina Arcklin took beautiful photos that captured this Amsterdam store called Good Genes and this Garage Bar in Sweden. If the designers of Good Genes and the Garage Bar would design my home, I'd be thrilled! Pretty sure neither designer does house calls to the States, but one can dream!

About the Parisian home of Florence: "From her top floor, typical Parisian apartment situated at the foot of Montmartre, she can nearly touch the clouds. Because what she loves is when the sunlight breaks through the walls and explodes in your face to magnify the white. Florence loves this immaculate white and she has it everywhere, from the old ceramics in her kitchen, to the linen sheets in her bedroom and the teepee she has built in her lounge for her children. She cares for her interior with a passion and it makes you want to do likewise." via The... Continue reading
