A special announcement // patiently waiting for September

Posted on

Dean and I are so happy to announce that we are expecting a little bean this September. We are absolutely over the moon.

  Thank you to those of you who have hoped and prayed and wished us well. I cannot tell you how much it means to us. Its amazing how much support and love you have around you when you need it the most. 
 Baby Klipfel is already feeling the love! 


Baby K at 8 weeks, and at 12 weeks. Crazy how much they grow in a matter of weeks.
I cannot wait to meet this little squishy.

Here is how we announced it to our friends...

Beach Cottage // a living room redesign

Posted on

After spending a year working in a lovely shop in Venice, Ca, my love for the beach cottage look was instilled deep. The calming neutrals, rustic accents and crisp whites make my heart swoon.

In my own home, I tried to branch out and use color on my walls, and if you know me, this is WAY out of the norm for me. Beachy tones, whites tans and creams are my happy place. I often find myself sitting in my living room asking..." what were you thinking?!" but since my husband and father- law spent a summer painting the house the colors that I wanted, I couldn't bear the thought of asking them to do it again.
As you can see- the over sized brown sofas, blue walls and carpet are really making a statement. it's just too much blue for me.

This summer my husband and I are planning on doing a bunch of home improvements, and I could not be happier! We are finally getting rid of the ugly blue carpet we have! and yes- we are going to repaint over the pretty blue walls I once loved. here is the look we will be going for to match the rest of my neutral home.

 Any thoughts?? I can't wait to share the transformations...
