Kaysville New Build – Exterior Reveal

When it came to the outside of our Kaysville new build we knew the exterior had to be just as amazing as the interior. We worked on several revisions of this exterior to get it just right. One of the biggest challenges was the size of the home. It is sometimes challenging to design a cohesive and overall visually pleasing facade when you are dealing with a larger home with multiple pitches, dormers, roof changes, chimneys etc. We stuck with our main farmhouse theme and brought in a color scheme of black, wood and white with stone and a red brick chimney mixed in.

Our Favorite Slipcovered Sofas

Today we’ve rounded-up our favorite slipcovered sofas! The best thing about these sofas is that their covers come off and can be washed. The fabrics used on slipcovers are generally more durable as well, making them tougher against stains and regular use wear. These are such a great option for families with kids or pets, or both! The fabrics are durable too, so they’ll last longer and look good doing it. Plus, we think the look of a slipcovered sofa just exudes comfort. Don’t you want to just curl up with a cozy blanket and a good book on any one of these? Or snuggle in to binge watch your favorite show(s)? We sure do!

This breakfast nook is so dreamy! We love this adorable tudor home designed by Heidi Caillier Design.

1. Kirsten wore this cardigan in our fall home decor tour. And guess what? It comes in a pullover style! We love the sleeve details and we think any of those colors would be so great for fall, winter, holiday parties, you name it!

2. We love these teak and rattan stools! They would look especially good used as plant stands.

3. Ivy and Ro makes such cute headwraps for babies and moms too! Their fabrics are so soft, yet they hold really well. No slipping or sliding!

Nearly Natural Faux Trees

One of our favorite elements to add into a room is greenery. It’s amazing how a branch, flower, fern etc can really liven up a space. There is something so organic about seeing the colors of nature in your home when you walk into a room. We are so excited to be teaming up with Nearly Natural for this post. They offer a large variety of plants and trees to use in any room in your home!

In our search for plants we often frequent our local nurseries. The hard thing about a nursery is that they might not always have just what you are looking for in the exact size you are looking for. You are also limited with what types of plants do best where. For example, we really wanted an olive tree in this corner of this living room but the natural light isn’t ideal. Olive trees do best in south facing windows and this one faces north.

Fall Home Decor

Our approach to decorating for the season is to do so in a way that is less literal and more about adding warmth in a way that doesn’t detract from the existing decor. When thinking about the elements we wanted to bring in, we approached it by considering how we could change the feel of the space to go hand-in-hand with the way the changing season feels. The end result is a home that is layered with varying colors and textures, and that feels cozy and warm for the coming cooler months.

For the front porch, we layered greenery, fall florals, and varying squash vegetables that are quintessential to the season. Because we didn’t want to be too literal with the decor, we just used a select few of the pumpkins and gourds, sprinkling them around the the potted plants to help lead the front porch from summer into fall.

We loving this dining space from Amber’s project Client Z to the E to the N Again. The whole home is so beautiful and inviting.

1. Elsie Baby Co makes such cute bows and they also have matching bib and bow sets so your little one’s accessories can coordinate perfectly.

2. Orange Street Paper Co. makes super cute wrapping paper, as well as art prints, greeting cards, and more.

3. Black definitely isn’t our first thought for a throw pillow, but this one is just so good.

4. This handmade vase is so beautiful; we just love that texture.

5. We’re pulling out the fall scents and this candle is a must with it’s sweet spiced scent; it’s just enough to not be overpowering.

6. We love these cute heeled mules.

7. Who wouldn’t want to buy a home designed by Joanna Gaines? This one is so pretty!

8. We love this carved bowl. Just imagine how cute it would look filled with mini white pumpkins for fall or pine cones and citrus for the winter?

9. It’s finally starting to cool down around here and this chai spiced hot chocolate sounds so deliciously warming right now.

10. These velvet bows are so super cute! Such a fun way to dress up a simple pony.

11. “At Home” is a fascinating book about the history of private life. Bill Bryson’s way of storytelling keeps you coming back for more as he discusses how building the Erie Canal impacted the development of the cellar, and how and when bricks became a popular building material. If nothing else, this book will you give you a greater appreciation for living in the time we do.

12. This simple blanket looks so cute and cozy.

Rather than doing chairs all around the table, mixing in a bench is a fun way to add more seating. Benches are a great option for families with kids too, plus you can always pull the bench out when you need additional seating elsewhere.

Product Round-up : Affordable Chandeliers

Photography by Becky Kimball | from our Mapleton New Build project

Today we’re sharing the first of many product round-ups.  We recently asked on Instagram what products you wanted us to find for you and one of the most asked for was lights that are good but also affordable.  Everyone has their own unique preferences and their spaces have unique needs, so we’ve broken this post up by styles to help you in your search for the perfect light.  Today, we’re starting off with chandeliers.  Good quality chandeliers can cost thousands, but we’ve found many that are good, stylish and only cost a few hundred at most!  We’ll be doing round-ups of pendants, sconces, and exterior lights as well, but if there are any other requests, let us know in the comments!
