  • Urban Oasis: A Stone Orchard House in Tel Aviv, Redone by Two Architects
    by Annie Quigley on October 21, 2019 at 8:00 AM

    We’ve been admirers of Israeli-born architects Noam Dvir and Daniel Rauchwerger of BoND ever since we featured one of their quietly ingenious projects—a streamlined Manhattan flat, packed with hidden storage—on The Organized Home. Recently, browsing through their site, we stumbled on Villa Salame, a little stone house in Tel Aviv redone by Dvir in collaboration with Jonathan

  • California Style, Epitomized: An Airy Lakeside House Redone by Jenni Kayne
    by Annie Quigley on October 18, 2019 at 8:00 AM

    When it comes to laid-back, California-cool design, Jenni Kayne is the undisputed It girl. So when Fan spotted, on Instagram, a white-washed cabin on the shores of California’s Lake Arrowhead that was recently re-done by Jenni and her team, we took note—and asked Jenni herself for the inside scoop. “We fell in love with the cozy

  • #151: When Is It Worth It To Splurge?
    by John Petersik on October 21, 2019 at 5:00 AM

    Today we’re sharing how two recent treat yourself moments in our house turned sideways on us and how it shed some light on when to splurge and when to make like Elsa and let it go. One even involves a feature in our bathroom reno that we’ve dreamed about for years, but suddenly can’t seem to justify in actual practice (although it sounds great in theory!). Also after nearly 11,000 people took our “Side Of The Bed” survey, we have some surprising insights about why people sleep where they do. Plus there’s been another Color of the Year development and we find the silver lining to a recent personal event that shook us up.

  • How Much Did The Duplex Kitchens Cost?
    by John Petersik on October 15, 2019 at 10:03 PM

    As our bathroom reno continues (current status: more demo happened, our vanity, tub, & toilet arrived, and we have our plumber & electrician scheduled to rough things in and then we can prep & tile) we thought it would be fun to share a duplex kitchen budget breakdown. *Also, for anyone who has inquired about renting the duplex this fall, there’s an announcement about that later in the post* wood cabinets | tile | counters | pendant | faucet | hardware | tall cutting board |walls: SW Spare White | trim: SW Extra White Obviously, there are LOTS of factors that affect how expensive a kitchen renovation will be, so let this post just be a reference point for you – not a prescription for how much a kitchen reno should cost.

  • #150: Changing Our Minds About Our House (Again)
    by John Petersik on October 14, 2019 at 5:00 AM

    Our home’s exterior makeover didn’t stop with painting it white last year, so today we’re catching you up on some projects we’ve completed and what’s still to come (and it involves something we’ve changed our minds about twice). We’re also reflecting on a few experiments & interviews over the past 149 episodes that truly changed the way we live in our house – and we’re issuing a challenge to help us all find some new ways to improve our household routines and daily lives. Plus, we look into why someone might buy a house they’ve never seen, located in a town they’ve never been to (!!!). The idea may be less crazy than it sounds… You can download this episode from Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn Radio, and Spotify – or listen to it below! Note: If you’re reading in a feed reader, you may have to click through to the post to see the player.

  • Our Bathroom Reno: The Floor Plan & Tile Picks!
    by Sherry Petersik on October 9, 2019 at 3:27 PM

    Ok, now we’re cooking with gas! Maybe I shouldn’t use that expression for a bathroom reno… ANYWAY… we’ve made lots of progress since partially demo-ing the room last week (more on that here), and wanted to share our final floorpan with you (IT’S SUCH A GIANT IMPROVEMENT!) and our final tile picks (along with a few other things we debated, why we chose what we chose, etc). So here’s the old bathroom layout. Yes we lived with it like this for over six years. Yes, it was A LOT of doors (the one leading from the hall to our bedroom is right behind where the tub is below – so there were five in a ten step radius or so). And the only natural light in the entire space basically was stopped by a bunch of walls and doors, so it made it as far as the toilet and maybe the tub on a good day and that was it.

  • #149: What’s Next For Our Master Bathroom Reno
    by John Petersik on October 7, 2019 at 5:00 AM

    We’re sharing how our bathroom reno went from zero to fifty percent (that’ll make more sense when you hear what we did) and how we gained a ton of insight about the right layout and the right size for the vanity, shower, tub, etc. Also… the houseplant struggle is real, so we asked plant expert Carmeon Hamilton everything we’ve ever wanted to know about how to keep inside greenery alive (and happy!). She shared her favorite easy plants for beginners and even laid out when to water, re-pot, and fertilize your indoor greenery (we were like: wait, we should be fertilizing?!?). Plus, we’re shouting out a super handy multipurpose tool that we loved so much we bought two of them. And there was a surprise twist in our color of the year predictions that even we didn’t believe at first.

  • Accent Chairs Under $800 (Organized By How You Actually Use Them)
    by Jess Bunge on October 21, 2019 at 9:00 AM

    One of the few incredibly sad things about having an apartment under 400 sqft (like mine) is that you are extremely limited on the number of accent chairs your “living room” can hold (and by limited I mean one very petite gal at most). Accent chairs are kind of an obsession around here. Often someone... Read More … The post Accent Chairs Under $800 (Organized By How You Actually Use Them) appeared first on Emily Henderson.

  • I Tried 3 “Party” Makeup Looks: Can I Pull Off These Trends?
    by Ryann Miller on October 19, 2019 at 9:00 AM

    For someone who loves a good party, I barely change my makeup AT ALL for nighttime, not owning even one eye shadow beyond a cream glimmer, that I don’t know how to apply. I don’t love the look of heavy makeup and frankly think most people look better more natural (i.e. the no-makeup makeup look)....

    As much as we (and by we, I mean non-professional stylists like Emily) would all love to change up our home furnishings and general decor as soon as we are in need of a refresh, that isn’t always the most time/money efficient way to change up the feel of your home.
