Thing about that giant skull is it’s plastic. 🙈 Not only is it plastic, but it’s a Halloween decoration I got on clearance a couple years back. If you put batteries into the back, the eyes light up green 😆 I want to say it cost me about $8 🙌🏼 I love it so much and I swear it looks real in person too ! Recently, I’ve been thinking about painting it . What do you think? Leave it as is or get a little funky ? Maybe flowers? An Aztec print ? 🤔

this is the “before” and it is the ugly that a lot of bloggers don’t share. I used to look at these perfect Instagram feeds and think ‘wow these people have their shit together!’ and I used to envy their decor and all of the perfect and pretty; but then i realized how unrealistic that all is! I follow people because I like to see their decor, and fashion, and most of the time that is designing around a massive tv, ugly light switch, or buying clothes to cover up the 10 lbs you gained during the holidays! •
Well this is real life at the Cortell apartment - we moved in two weeks ago and I still have to paint the credenza (an old record player i got for $10!!!) and fill out the space. But this is where we are, raw, and real.
This is our beautiful teak circle chair that's available for local deliveries (Bellingham to Seattle) or can be shipped through our @chairishco shop. Or email with questions.

We have been working on a couple of bathroom facelifts around here the past month. We still have some finishing details to add in to be fully operational but here’s a little sneak peek of some our progress. ▫️
We just had the tub and tile reglazed by @miracle_method and it is 👌🏻I have a huge crush on the shower curtain by @urbanoutfitters as well as the foxy matte black bath fittings by @deltafaucet 😍 Swipe left for before pics.
Daydreaming and drawing up inspiration with a little help from a few beautiful magazine spreads from @archdigest@d_magazine and @coastal_living . Instagram is typically a go-to source for me, but lately I’m feeling that there must be a balance of screen time vs: the physical. Do you feel much more involved in what you’re reading and the way you’re seeing the graphics when you’re actually holding the paper? Maybe I miss the art form of visual presentation. Maybe it’s just me, or maybe I’m up on my soapbox again? 🤷🏻♀️ #wednesdaywisdom
Always been my dream to design a modern guest cottage. I want it to be a place that I would LOVE staying if I were traveling. I finally got my cottage!!! Now working on perfecting the space...so excited!!!😀
2018! I’m shopping in my own closet this year 💁🏼♀️ It’s amazing how much you can shift a space with a new piece of art, textile or rug 💚 I fell in love with my husband all over again when he suggested that he could frame my vintage tapestries for a clean & polished Look. Here’s our latest project! 🐘🐘🐘🐘 thank you @eclectic.leigh for tagging me this week for #howyouhome 👌🏻
What’s your favorite way to shift a space?! ✌🏻
Our living room feels so disheveled right now- just like the rest of the house. As eager as I am for the kitchen renovation to wrap up, I’m just as excited to put the house back how it belongs!! That would honestly be my ideal Sunday, ha. How’s your weekend looking?
