The One “Entire House” Paint Trick That Stole Our Hearts (+ A Bunch Other Ideas To Feast Your Eyes On)

I equate those quiet design details that you only probably clock at a second or third look to the background music in a movie or tv show. You’re so wrapped up in the “big picture” that you don’t realize a big part of what is drawing you in is the emotion of the music. What is Jaws without the “duunnn dunnn… duuuunnnn duun… duuunnnnnnnn dun dun dun dun...

Calling All Portland Maker, Artist, And Vintage Dealers – Farmhouse Style

One of the best things about moving back to Portland is the amount of artistic, creative, and talented artists and makers there are, and the strong community they form. For the Portland project years ago we borrowed a ton of art (because it was for staging the house) that was featured on the blog (and many purchased by myself, my brother, and the new...

It’s Time. We’re Renting Out The Mountain House And Here’s How It’s Going Down…

Hey all, The Hendersons have finally decided to rent out our home to respectful renters (families, small company retreats and photo shoots).

Old-World And Unexpected Kitchen Cabinet “Trends” That We Are Loving And Leaning Into – Ways to Make A “New” Kitchen More Charming

Trying to make this basically-brand-new farm kitchen look “original” is not our goal. Even with a time machine, the “original” kitchen from 1910 wouldn’t exactly work for our modern needs.

Hey friends, Lea here, it’s been a while (five months since I revealed my living room update in fact) and I don’t know about you, but this year is flying by. If you follow me on Instagram you may know I live in the Midwest, specifically Minnesota so we cherish our summers here because of the long winters. That said, I typically push all our interior...

What’s The Best Way To Travel Over 900 Miles With Two Dogs? Dog Owners, We Need Your Help

For my 35th birthday, Emily surprised me by showing up in a rented passenger van full of our best friends. She drove us all up the freeway to the amusement park Magic Mountain for a day of roller coasters and thrill rides. Now, if you know Emily, you know how much she hates driving, so hauling a big 12 passenger van up the I-5 during morning rush hour...

The Pros And Cons Of The Pot-Filler (+ Brian And My First Farm Renovation Fight)

Few things really rev people up like pot-fillers – I had no idea. Such was the subject of our first actual farm fight of the renovation. I thought it was a no-brainer that we don’t need one because I rarely used the one we used to have and we don’t have one here and I rarely wish we did. Brian, apparently, had a secret emotional, passionate connection...

After coming off the heels of an 1878 Victorian renovation, my family and I decided to sell our home and embark on a new project: A 1945 Colonial fixer-upper during the height of the pandemic. With real estate prices soaring, we were lucky enough to win our bid and began transforming our new house into a home we love. When we first stepped foot...
