The result of moving one thing to make room for the Christmas tree, which then leads to more things getting moved and eventually the room is completely unrecognizable. But at least we have a place to put the Christmas tree. 🤷🏻♀️
Mental Health. I have a career in this field, yet I rarely speak about it in a “public” way. I’ve been reflecting on my tendency to be quiet on the topic and also weighing my “duty” to advocate. Did you know it’s in the ethical code of a counselor to raise public awareness of the realities of mental health?
Mental health and wellness looks different for every single person. For me, I know I’m not functioning at my best when the following starts to happen: frequent headaches (usually the first sign for me), decreased desire to go to the gym, “numbing out” in the forms of constantly and mindlessly scrolling social media or binge-watching tv multiple nights in a row, no desire to read, low motivation to get things done, resenting my job (which I typically love), bickering or picking fights with Johnny, craving unhealthy food. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People often ask how I care for myself mentally and emotionally after being immersed in the minds and struggles of others in my role as a counselor. The things I’m desiring are often in the name of “self-care” but in actuality are more detrimental.
True ways I’ve learned to care for myself:
- Walk around a green house to admire and physically touch the plants (grounding).
- Plan and cook a healthy and hearty meal.
- Drag my butt to the gym (always feels better about mid-way through the workout).
- Turn my work phone off and sign out of my email for a full day (prevents burn out).
- Sit in a coffee shop with no laptop and a good book.
- Stroll the aisles of a bookstore.
- Take a bath and listen to a podcast.
I tell my clients to make a list like this to pull out when they aren’t feeling motivated - when you’re in a funk isn’t the time to try and come up with ideas.
What would be on your list? 🖤

Don’t get weary of Christmas photos - it’s the happiest time of the year: vintage/Christmas! I’m debating doing my own Advent calendar on Instagram in December - a daily winter/Christmas vintage find - thoughts?
One of the latest finds added to my @chairishco
shop! This beautiful planter stood out to me for its traditional form and unique detailing. Perfect for any shelf/console/end table with a little hint of something green like the eucalyptus shown here.
Decorating the table is my favorite part of Thanksgiving! It doesn’t take much to create a beautiful display, you can use all natural elements like pumpkins and squash in fun colors and textures, a lovely basket, and some pinecones and pressed leaves. Instead of a table cloth, use kraft paper - it’s perfect for the rustic feel and makes clean up a breeze!🍁
The contrast in the colors and textures is what makes this work for a lovely cozy fall display. But like the table I decorated last year, you can add a table runner, antlers, and greenery from the grocery store for an elegant look. 🍁
Have you, or are you hosting this year? How do you decorate?
New animal print velvets from @zinctextile
are a maximalist dream.
Cheers to all of you out there getting a jump start on the Thanksgiving meal prep! We hope you find joy in the midst of the busy & are filled to the brim with gratitude.💗 Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
Double tap if you love the mix of old & new, too 🙋🏻
It has been suuuch a busy week & it's only Tuesday 😂 I don't know where I got the idea that I'll have some time off this week... We have so much to do before the market next weekend! Oh and Thanksgiving in a couple days. Oy. I'm sure a lot of you are in the same boat in this season of busy. God speed, friends.
A Very Merry Market 🎅🏻

Our African Art-Deco living room is complete but we are just going to give you a taste of how much this space has changed before the whole room reveal. These oversized armless Xander chairs from @jlfurniture
were the last and perfect detail to the whole space! They are seriously the most plush and comfortable chairs we’ve ever owned- the minute you sit down it’s like falling back onto a cloud. The whole room reveal will happen soon so keep your eyes peeled, we will also have close ups and links to all our furniture selections #jonathanlouis #jlfurniture #ad

Our #human #chairs

On the loom today ❤️ I spent yesterday threading all 864 ends though the heddle and the reed.
Our Galileo collection is now available in our powder coated finishes. Pictured above is the Double Galileo Sconce in matte black / walnut 💡
What was once a disorganized and dark kitchen is now a bright and colorful space filled with reclaimed materials and vintage collectibles. At the first consultation meeting, our clients had the collections ready. Live edge wood, vintage hardware, and craftsman tiles. We knew they wanted a unique and eclectic space and our job was to make it cohesive and uncluttered. What do you think of the result?

Okay, so instagram is awesome, but what makes it even MORE awesome, is when you find your people. As you can see from my feed, I’m definitely more of a neutral person and I’ve joined up with some other neutral lovers - the kind of people who feel like MY people on instagram - and we’ve decided to put together a Neutral Follow Train!
As the holidays get closer, our feeds will soon be covered in reds, greens, and all the rest, and we wanted to gather a little group of neutral loving ladies to bring you some neutral inspo for the season!
We love meeting other design lovers on instagram, and we’re so looking forward to connecting with you guys! We’ve gathered a GREAT group of people with beautiful feeds who are all looking for new inspiration and connections! This should be fun! So, here’s what you need to do:
➕Follow all the accounts listed below
➕Like this image and comment with a 🖤 (or your favourite neutral emoji) on each of our accounts
➕That’s it! You’re done!
We will follow back all the accounts that inspire us & share our favorites in our stories so that you guys can connect with other neutral lovers!

On the blog - RENOVATION REVELATIONS - PART 1 - link in profile 👉🏻 Each of your homes is a personal sanctuary, offering endless opportunities for individual expression. I remember the sheer joy I experienced as a child realizing I had the power (with my parents help, of course!) to transform my bedroom into a space that radiated my character. Curating my living spaces with endearing personalized decor has become one of my passions ever since. I consider renovation an opportunity to reimagine the ways in which I can organize various design and architectural elements to act as an extension of my personality and style. This being said, I must admit that initiating renovations can sometimes prove to be an overwhelming process! This is the largest renovation project we’ve ever undertaken and it’s nearly become my full time job! With that in mind, I wanted to offer a little guidance and some lessons I’ve personally learned along the way!
Clean bedroom & clean sheets, the best. Brown and white forever will be my favorite color combination.

The joys of walking home to a tidy house and no sense of impending doom 🤭
Dave and Clara are off for the week, (Des has school mon and tues) and the break in the rush to get out the door in the morning, to pick up the house, to manage even half of the things on a todo list are tremendously lightened. Not looking for a medal here, and not disregarding all of the different types of struggles we all face in different ways, but holy fuck, the stress of both parents working outside of the house full time, often with schedules that don’t align, is a lot right now. Last week it brought me to my knees. Sending big love to all of the parents just doing their best. ❤️
