Air quality today is horrible. We have an app that tells us what number it is everyday. Denver: 14. New York: 22. Yesterday ours was 156. Day before that 176. Slide to see what our number is today 😳 I spent a few minutes outside yesterday rescuing the few roses that are still blooming. It looks deceivingly beautiful right now but our windows and doors are all closed tightly. Mean fire particles are lurking around...

It’s #womancrushwednesday and I want to share @theheartandhaven today. Erin has impeccable style and is a friggin riot. Her home makes me smile but her captions makes me laugh out loud!
I wish she vlogged because she’s hilarious but if she did I may go broke. Her stories are so entertaining to watch but don’t say I didn’t warn you, she takes us shopping and you end up buying all the things.
She’s my #onetofollow today and everyday! Go check her feed and shop with her in her stories!
Somehow just discovered @sezane and I'm feeling like I might have a problem on my hands. 😂⠀
I'm not a shopper. But when I find a brand I really really love (of which there are approximately...3?) I desperately want to buy all the things.⠀
These thick knits are just cooing my name through their soft, wooly layers (in French, obviously). 💋⠀
Are you a shopper? Or a one-and-done brand follower like me? What's your go-to brand for cozy winter gear?⠀
part of the fun of the blog series on front + main is seeing what illustration @tallulahfontaine creates to accompany our post. I always wonder, what will she latch onto? what is worthy of her taking 🖊 to paper?!
we submit all the photos + text to @westelm and then don’t get to see the final post/illustration until you do! so it’s reveal day for everyone 👏🏽 👻 🥳
I’m particularly drawn to this one (👉🏽), as it feels fancy + carefree AF. (+ I love the 📚 titles she created). that’s all. #midwestmalibucottage

It’s soup and hot tea weather up here in Indiana. I have stacks of my signature Batik soup and latté mugs ready for the next shop update. I’ve been stock piling them to make sure there are enough for everyone this holiday season!
You may have noticed the new look. We’ve officially switched over the studio to the new luscious dark brown clay and have four gorgeous new glazes.

Quick tip: you should never block a window with furniture but if the sofa has low profile you can place it in front. Just make sure to leave about 10”-12” between your sofa and the wall to give the piece some breathing room and to allow space for window treatments.

Officially giving into peer pressure and taking the kids to Disney World in the spring! I feel like I need a full time job to try to figure all the planning out! And then also another full time job to pay for it 😱😱. The kids are so excited though and I can’t wait to see them in the parks. #disneyworld#momlife#myrenovatedreality @betterhomesandgardens @homelovenetwork
The dining room became exponentially more spacious and open simply by removing a wall and replacing an extra door with a window. If only that was as simple as it sounds! 😂 Because it was a snowball. There had been some water damage to the corner ceiling and wall, and when we removed a portion to check the status we found mold which had to be remediated and required removing the entire span of wall across the shared laundry room wall. That also exposed a partial unused chimney that had previously been a “bump out” in the wall and we were able to remove that to make a straight corner. Then we discovered the ceiling needed to be removed to repair the joists for the room above. See? Snowball! 😂 So while we had totally gutted the room beyond expectation, (slide for dramatic during photos) it gave us an opportunity to leave the dining room more open to the entry and hallway by adding a support beam. Necessity allowed for positive change! We love the room more open. 📷 @evalinphotography
Clouds by Wendy Engelman make you question if they are a picture or a painting. They were definitely painted. Wendy is a new artist we have brought in and are very privileged to have her work with us. Come see for yourself her talent. #s#shoptheblvd 🍊
Today I’m sharing all the details on this upholstered ottoman. See more in my stories, and read the step by step #ontheblog .
Hey all! I accidentally just DELETED this post from 3 hours ago! Duh! So you guys better like it again! 😂 🙄😂 .
I started this Instagram page in the middle of August... so I guess it’s about time I formally introduced myself! .
My name is Rebecca. I’m a Canadian living in Calgary, Alberta (just outside of the Rocky Mountains). I’ve been married for 13 years to my husband Wade, and have 2 boys who are 10 (Eli) and 7 (Miles). We also have a dog named Blu. .
I’ve been art director and photographer working almost exclusively on high volume commercial productions for over 14 years, but in June of this year, I made some changes in my career path. .
I’m still deciding where I’m going with this page, but in the short time I’ve had my account here, I’ve shared some recent work, worked on some fun collaborations, shared some images of my home and family and I’ve just started posting some more candid moments on stories. I’ve also been doing a bit of writing a shooting for @sayyesblog and look forward to exploring more opportunities like that in the future. .
I’m generally a pretty private person, but I love authentic people, good conversation, design, road trips, camping, spending time outside, and being at home with my family. .
I’ve really enjoyed exploring this Instagram community! Here’s to many more months to come!
My living room has always been one of favorite spots in the house. I didn’t feel like I needed to do a ton besides some minor tweaks to pull it all together. First on the list? A bigger and more comfy rug ✔️ combine that with changing out the granny sconces, adding in my vintage theater seats, plus more plants has me really loving the outcome.
As the sky near my house is glowing orange, I can’t help but to think of all the homes and lives lost to fires in my beautiful state this week, including this one in Malibu. My heart goes out to all the people trying to navigate through this tragedy, and trust that those of us lucky enough to still have our homes will step up and support those who have lost everything.

Quickly becoming a favourite in our eyes... all those beautiful tones coming together! It’s got the perfect mix of white, brown, black and stainless. Absolutely in love with how this custom home turned out. 🙌🏼 Who else is swooning over this one?! 🙋🏼♀️
In case you missed it, there’s a GIANT video house tour in my stories today. Check out every single before & after image from our renovation- looking back on the past two years, it’s quite the transformation. There’s also an amazing giveaway on the blog you won’t want to miss, trust me (link in profile).
Sam had to literally pry the skeletons out of my hands this year and to be honest, I’m still mourning Halloween. Luckily, thanksgiving is a great pumpkin segue into Christmas! We’re also hosting this year so that’s helping me get into gear!! | Pro tip thanks to my genius mom (&& literally no one selling real pumpkins in November 🙄) if you’re using your Halloween pumpkins for thanksgiving decor, put foil under them to save your tables!) #thanksgiving#thanksgivingdecor#doingneutralright
