Mail Sorter with Key Hooks

Mail Sorter with Key Hooks

When you come in the door, dumping your snowy or muddy boots, jacket, and whatever else you were wearing to ward against the cold weather outside, it’s natural that other areas become dumping grounds for junk. In our case, the little file cabinet by the front door became a piling spot for mail, takeaway menus,…

Simple Foraged Christmas Wreath

Hey friends! Please excuse the very temporary theme change and the weird appearance of the Grape Soda Club! We had an issue installing a plugin in our theme that blocked everything on the page but our logo – so we set this up temporarily to let you still read our content! We’re hard at work…

10 Christmas Decorators We Love

10 Christmas Decorators We Love

Tomorrow is December! It’s hard to say whether December or October is my favorite month here in Virginia, but right now, I’m craving warm colors, pine everything everywhere, and some holiday cheer. The capital region is insane right now to say the least, but the holidays always seem to dampen the nuttiness down and bring…

Cozy Touches :: Our Favorite Finds

Cozy Touches :: Our Favorite Finds

As I write this, it’s 41F and clear outside our house, our little cat is sitting at the window I cracked with his nose pressed excitedly against the screen, Scott and I are enjoying coffee, blankets, and cabin socks, and one of the new “fresh cotton sheets” scented candles I picked up is burning in…

Rustic + Cozy :: Guest Room 2

While we still have a lot of improvements planned for the Big Brick House, we’ve been busily knocking out some of them in preparation for hosting our family Thanksgiving this year. It turns out that hosting was a great impetus to get us to finish off our second guest room, Scott’s office, and decorating the…

All About Firepits

All About Firepits

There’s something magical about gathering around a fire. Even in this day and age of innovative climate control technology, people still love to sit around a fire and warm their bodies and spirits. Our favorite way to enjoy that, aside from our fireplaces, is an outdoor firepit. It’s our favorite way to gather and stay…

Those of you who have been around here for a while know we unapologetically love Target. Scott helped design the layout and locations for the first Targets in Hawaii and we anxiously waited for them to get built so we could raid their awesome selection of affordable decor items for the Aloha House. Lucky for…

Currently Loving :: Bleached Wood Furniture

I’ve seen images of bleached wood furniture popping up all over the place lately, and I’m in love with the warmth and brightness of it! And it’s a really easy, really inexpensive way to treat wood and get yourself a beautiful and distinct look. Maybe it’s my Swedish heritage speaking – we seem to love…

Fall Table + Mantel at the Big Brick House

It’s finally fall! We’re definitely ready for the Virginia humidity to give way to cooler weather, which looks like it’s going to happen over the next week. Although the cool weather and thunderstorms on our forecast, which we’re looking forward to, are a sober reminder of the devastation the hurricanes where these cold fronts began…

Our Wish List from Target’s New Project 62 Brand

Our Wish List from Target’s New Project 62 Brand

When we overhauled the Aloha House in Hawaii, we did it on a very definite budget. We managed to get actual hardwood floors and reclaimed wood for our feature wall, marble tiles for the bathroom, and more great features, but a lot of it was contractor overstock and construction leftovers that we had to really…
