The Weekender: A Reader Survey, For the Love of Plants and a Portrait for Kitty

Our Charly from Interior Define was delivered this week!

We’d Love to Hear From You!

It’s time for our annual reader survey! We’d love to get to know you better, so that we can continue to strengthen this amazing community. Last year, we took your feedback to heart by reorganizing the blog’s home page, adjusting the way our links open, and took a time out to answer your most common questions and frustrations.

Your engagement – whether that’s silently reading a post directly on our blog, ‘liking’ a social post, watching our videos on YouTube, leaving a comment and, yes, taking part in the survey! – not only helps us to deliver the best content possible, but it enables us to partner with brands whose creativity aligns with our own, and it keeps blogs alive and well. You and us, we’re a team.

Note: All answers are anonymous, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to provide your feedback. Have we told you lately that we love you? (We do.)

What Else?

So many of you have noticed Kitty’s collar during #yourdailycatfish. I over-researched every collar out there (hi, I’m Kim!), and I landed on this waterproof one in sand with a brass buckle and nameplate. No more jingling tags!

Our Charly sofa from Interior Define was delivered this week (seen above)! We chose a standard depth with oak legs, and that gorgeous fabric is the velvet Quartz. It’s downright dreamy.

This candle in Egyptian Fig must be what heaven smells like. It’s a wonderful scent for year-round use, and I’m about to order several more to keep on hand at all times! Scott and I agreed that the scent when burning is completely different than when the wax is cold. It somehow smells more cozy, more fresh and more delicious when hot.

Unshrink your clothes! have you tried this?

For my fellow plant lovers, I got so much out of these tips for repotting your plants. I’m guilty of not sizing up as often as I should – or worse, potting in a vessel that’s too big from the start.

Speaking of plants, I can’t wait to check out Semillias, a new plant studio that recently opened in Pilsen! Chicago friends, have you been?

Have you gotten to the pandemic point of craving a good workout? I’ve been using the Brooke Burke Body app, and it’s worth every penny! I’m counting down the minutes to my post-work workout as I speak.

Fed up with my ‘Rona hair, I picked up this hair oil and never looked back! I use it on damp shower hair, but also just to throw it back in a ponytail. It’s magnificent and smells like a field of flowers.

This schoolhouse style light fixture is making the bedrooms at the Two Flat – and it’s under $40.

The sweetest engagement photos. (The one in the lighting aisle slays me!)

I almost can’t deal with how amazing these pet portraits are, and better yet, purchases support rescue! Thinking I need one of Catfish Kitty.

IG I Love

With as often as we talk about @glographics in our home, you’d think she was a true, close friend of ours. And although she may not be a tangible friend, she feels like a friend. I’m sad to have only discovered her recently, a result of our current human rights movement. Glo, thank you for the knowledge you bring to the table every day. You’re an inspiration!

Happy Weekend To You!

What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be photographing a (socially distant) session with our friends who recently welcomed the sweetest little girl into the world. Aside from that, margaritas – of course! xx

    I’m going to be using your shelving tutorial from the Tree House bathroom to add some new! better! shelves to my linen closet, to replace the very old wire shelving I have currently (why is it sticky??). I am strangely excited about this :) I’m off now to take the survey, have a great weekend, friends!ReplyCancel

    Hi Kim! Your Charly sofa looks dreamy – wondering which cushion fill you chose and how comfortable you think it is? Trying to decide before I purchase one myself. Love following you guys!ReplyCancel

      We chose the one that bounces back, so no down fill. And it’s SO COMFORTABLE. It’s hard having this thing in the middle of our renovation, because all I want to do is nap.????ReplyCancel

    We’ve been looking at this exact sofa in the same fabric. I’m having trouble visualizing the scale. How long is the one you ordered? Thanks!ReplyCancel

      Ours was made to the longest size possible, I think it’s around 105″?ReplyCancel

    omg the pet portriats, haha! They’re so good. Can’t wait to see which background speaks to her! ReplyCancel
