Why You Should Probably Invest in a (New) Website

Back in 2019, we set our sights on a new site. Chris had been coding and managing ChrisLovesJulia.com for the first decade, and we had grown so much over the years that it started to feel a little clunky. We had somewhat of a Frankensite, with new parts and old parts and the constant striving […] The post Why You Should Probably Invest in a (New)...

Casual Friday: Shopping Spree, and the Room I’m Missing the Most From Our Previous Home

Yesterday we played a fun game in our Instagram Stories, where we brought our followers on a hypothetical shopping spree. It’s the “Would You Rather” of shopping with a set budget and you can’t choose both or neither as options. It’s pretend money! “Spend” freely! We’re bringing it to Casual Friday today so I can […] The post Casual Friday: Shopping...

Falling in Love with Fall in the Courtyard

We haven’t done any fall festivities this year. No pumpkin patches, no straw mazes, no pumpkin carving, nothing! The weather has just been so great that I don’t think we feel the same urgency we did in Idaho. We had to cram in all the festivities because every day it would just get colder and […] The post Falling in Love with Fall in the Courtyard...

Behind The Daily Dupe

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a coffee table. Money was a little tight, but we saved up the $1,085 to buy it because once I saw it — no other coffee table would do. It was my first furniture splurge, and I was so nervous and excited. When I arrived, it […] The post Behind The Daily Dupe appeared first on Chris Loves Julia.

All the Lighting I chose for the Bonus Room!

The planking in the bonus room is still underway (there’s a lot of angled and mitered cutting to do), but the good news is that it’s been wired for all the pretty new lighting I have planned! Before we moved into this house, I knew that I wanted to really focus and invest in lighting […] The post All the Lighting I chose for the Bonus Room! appeared...

Missy’s one-day Dining Room Makeover

Missy, our Editorial Assistant […] The post Missy’s one-day Dining...

Casual Friday: Polly’s Wallpaper is here!

I wasn’t planning on doing any of the girls rooms this year, because there was so much chaos in the main areas of the house, I really wanted to make sure their rooms stayed clean and organized (even if they did lack personality) until things calmed down everywhere else. But a few weeks ago, I stumbled […] The post Casual Friday: Polly’s Wallpaper...

A First Look At Our New Kitchen Selections + Mood Board!

Last we reported, we were going to have a working kitchen by Thanksgiving (more on that in a minute–because ehhhhh). I got really excited this week when a bunch of boxes started showing up. Boxes of lighting, hardware, and plumbing fixtures for our new kitchen and it’s starting to feel more like a reality! A […] The post A First Look At Our New Kitchen...

Our New Dining Room Table

I can count the amount of furniture we bought for this house on one hand, believe it or not. Our skirted bed, a new dresser for Greta’s room, new desks for our home office, dining chairs and our dining room table. I’ve been anxiously waiting for our dining table to arrive and it actually got […] The post Our New Dining Room Table appeared first on...

The New Balusters are Painted Black… And White!

Last week I took some time to slow down and this week I’m hitting the ground running, or rather the stairs. When I shared an update on the grand staircase and entryway, I mentioned that I might want to paint the balusters black and we even did a fun mock-up. Well, the entryway got painted, […] The post The New Balusters are Painted Black… And White!...
