Currently Loving: Home

Over the past month, much of life has been spent up in the air and on the open road. There’s something about travel. Past the beautiful feeds, you discover different cultures, those who think differently, and adapt a different rhythm. When creating on the road, you adjust to a new groove, one where spaces and places are meant to be discovered. I’m one who always loves travel seasons. There’s bliss to be found in the newness of adventure, the wildness found in road trips, and the energy of urban environments. It resonates deep within and a value I will continue to create margin for in the years to come, regardless of the seasons of life that may come.

Simple Styling: Bathroom Shelves

When it comes to styling, I’ve become slightly obsessed.

I have Pinterest boards filled with styled images, gorgeous flat lays, and well thought out interiors. If styling is done well, it can take an ordinary space and with a few touches make it look absolutely extraordinary.

As I looked to the main bathroom it was time to refresh the space. We purchased this amazing set of shelves locally from @desertsedgeco and hung them above our towel rack. I thought it was the perfect pairing. Keeping the pine shelves somewhat raw by sealing them with paste wax, placed above our Pendleton towels from the National Park collection.

Using a coupon and some artificial blooms from the dollar store, this wreath is the perfect note of spring for under $10.

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

As a little girl I would obsess over my easter egg craft project. I would wander up and down the aisles of my local Meijer grocery store. Whether it was a simple Paas kit, or marbling, glitter, or wax resists, I would dream about all the creative exploits that would land on the simple substrate of a white eggshell. Any moment for creativity was a welcome sight and regardless of the years that have passed, there’s something about dyeing Easter eggs that brings back a welcome DIY staple. This year we ditched artificial color and ventured into the world of natural dyeing processes. Whether dyed with tea, turmeric, or red cabbage, it’s was a fun project to explore.
