Happy Saturday! Even though I’m known for my coffee stations and frequent enjoyment of Seattle coffee shops 🤷🏻‍♀️ I only drink one cup of coffee a day (or maybe two if I’m desperate lol). 💦 But, I actually drink water all day long! To make it easy and to cut down on the number of glasses I have to wash, I use a pretty glass or stainless water bottle and just refill it throughout the day. 🙌🏻 Everyone in my family uses their water bottles, otherwise we’d end up with 5,000 cups on the counter 😬

Who is in the mood to refresh a room? 🙋🏻‍♀️ I think one of the simplest but most impactful updates anyone can make in a space has to be a RUG! Am I right? I mean, there are lots of things you can do to update a room, but a rug can make a significant difference simply by rolling it out on the floor. Easy enough, right? ✨

This week there is a fabulous rug sale going on at World Market so I picked up two new runners for our entry. YAY! 🎉 Here’s a sneak peek, but come on over to the blog today to see more! >>

I’m so grateful for this small kitchen. Every time I watch a home makeover show where they are house shopping, I know they will invariably head into the kitchen and hang their heads because it‘s so .... small. 😞 Womp womp womp.

The designer always agrees, so down all the walls come! I have nothing against a big kitchen, but I’m actually so happy we didn’t tear down our walls. ❤️

We fit in plenty of character, storage and counter space! I love that we have such a snug and cozy kitchen! 🌷
