Jenna’s Spring Apartment Refresh

I think I'm coming to terms with the fact that my apartment will never be "finished." Not due to a lack of design or time or ideas...but because I like to change things often. I also spend a lot of time at home, especially in my living room...and when I look at something for long enough, I get new ideas for how to change/improve it. Also worth noting, this is my favorite living space I've designed. I love it here. :') So here's a little update of my ever-changing living room. Happy Spring <3...

How to Start Designing a Room

Designing my living room was *super* daunting because I was basically starting from scratch with an amazing space that has so much potential! I began by starting a pinterest board and pinning every single thing that inspired me for the room. Then, after adding a million pins, I went through and found a theme of things I was pinning a lot of. And that’s where I got my color palette! I wanted rich, saturated colors and I knew I wanted it to feel warm and cozy. Like all the colors are giving you a hug. Here's a peek at my Pinterest board for my living room. I was *obviously* drawn to...

Officially New Yorkers – Prost!

*This post was sponsored by Wines of Germany but all opinions are our own.* Wow, has it been a year of change or has it been a year of change? Both of our lifestyles (and locations) have changed drastically in 2021. We're talking going from one coast to another. If you've been following our journeys, you've seen, but if you haven't, we're East Coast gals now! And after the storm of difficulty that was 2020, this change was welcome for both of us. And it's reminded us to celebrate all the good things life has to offer--big or small--and we're happy to take you through some of those moments...

10 Year Anniversary Trip to Joshua Tree!

Hi! Cort here checking into the blog for a first time in a LONG time! Thanks COVID for basically taking away all of my inspiration. 😉 But as you guys may or may not know, Ty & I recently hit 10 YEARS OF MARRIAGE and I can't even believe I'm typing that. We got married 10 years ago. At 18 years old. And I love the dude more than I ever thought possible. So we knew we had to do something to celebrate and while we would've loved for it to have been Italy, we are still in a pandemic and we wanted to be safe. Plus I don't think that's even allowed yet? Idk, maybe next year. So we decided...

Guide to Astoria, NY Part 1

HI! So now you know, I'm staying in New York for the long haul! I landed (for now) in Astoria, Queens. My bestie, Cassie, lives here, and it kinda feels like a second home anyways. I signed a short-term lease so that I could get my footing and really decide where I wanna plant roots. SO. I'm kind of using these "guides" as a way to share my explorations! Since I'll be living in Astoria, and I already have a list of more places, there might be several parts to this post lol. Side B Boutique Side B is a women owned store that carries 90% women-owned brands! There a mix of vintage and new...
