Home Decor

The only thing we like as much as parties is a pretty room. See our favorite home decor ideas and tips and tricks right here like how we turned a walk in closet into a bedroom for our two sons. Or how we decorated our temporary Paris apartment on the cheap.

Gorman

Gorman is an Australian brand that makes colorful and fun clothing. (If you follow my instagram then you know I’m a huge Gorman fan, they make all of my favorite dresses.) I was introduced to them last year and my husband jokes I should have a direct deposit to them because that’s where I spend all my money anyway. I love that their stuff is so different and they have great prints and cuts. They recently launched a line of homegoods and it’s so good I can’t believe it. How amazing is that eye plate? The shipping from Australia is totally fast and not too expensive. If you are shopping for clothes make sure you get the right size in Australian sizing (this sizing chart was accurate for me.) They also have amazing sales. I follow them on Facebook and Instagram and get great deals on their dresses.) Have you ever heard of Gorman?

Boys’ Room

I’m sharing photos of my sons’ bedroom today! The room didn’t come together right away and it’s taken lots of adjustments to get to where I finally felt it was “finished.” When we bought our first home in San Francisco and moved in last Fall we set up the old bedroom furniture in their new room but a lot of things just didn’t fit right. It has taken almost 6 months to slowly resolve each problem until I was happy with it. When I’m decorating a space I really try to think about how functional everything is, I’ll share that whole process below. Come take a peek!

Pantry Renovation

I’m so excited today to finally share the pictures of our pantry renovation! We did the kitchen and pantry at the same time but the kitchen is still not done (hopefully soon!) We did the renovations ourselves with the help of Paul’s parents (they are amazing!) I’ll get into to the nitty gritty down below but for now let’s look at the pretty photos.

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

I almost titled this “Stop adding this stuff to your cart Jordan, you can’t ever have it.” We are starting to actually decorate the house (way more fun than redoing the electrical!) But lately I’ve found that I’ll narrow down my lighting options for the dining room and realize none of the tabs open in my browser cost less than $9000. Since when did my taste get so expensive? I’m a big believer in saving up for the one thing that is really special and makes your heart happy but $9,000?!?!?!? That is not happening. My father would roll over in his grave and send me another copy of “The Richest Man in Babylon” from heaven. No judgement to the people that can afford it (um…can I come over to your house and look at your light fixtures? ) Anyway, it’s still fun to dream about all the pretty things out there. What is on your dream list?

You can't always get what you want.

I love the clean lines and brass details on this Milo Baughman chair. E. This light fixture is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

 

Studio Kitchen Makeover

I’m so happy to finally share some of the changes we’ve been working on the last few months at Oh Happy Day studio. First up is the Kitchen! This space wasn’t always a kitchen. It was a funny room in the back that got great light but wasn’t pleasant to be in since that is where all the boxes and random supplies would get stuffed when we had a project going on. We finally decided to to take the prime real estate and turn it into a little kitchen area. Last month we tackled that sad little room head-on. We knew we wanted to paint the kitchen a bright color and collaborated with Valspar since they have an awesome Love Your Color Guarantee. If you don’t love the color you chose you can try a new one, on them. It made it way easier to try  a bold color like Poker Green in a small space. We made the video below  showing the transformation that I’m really excited about, I hope you like it!
