Biz We Love | Our New Sofa with Scout & Nimble

Biz We Love | Our New Sofa with Scout & Nimble

Today, I’m sharing the deets on our new sofa and an awesome business that is helping consumers furnish their homes one designer room at a time.


Scout & Nimble

Scout & Nimble is the brainchild of my dear friend Jesse Bodine. Jesse and I first met at the very beginning of this blog. We started our blogs around the same time and I quickly discovered how much I loved her style and laid-back nature. She is one of the first bloggers I felt a real connection with and we shared a love for raising our little boys and good design. Genuinely an all-around great girl and an amazing friend.

When Jesse shared what she was going to do with Scout & Nimble, I thought– Wow! How freaking amazing is that going to be! To see her vision come to life is so very cool.

Scout & Nimble’s mission is simple. They want everyone to have access to design. S&N is a site that features shoppable rooms carefully curated by designers and stylists. They feature only quality furniture pieces and accessories. You can purchase the designed room looks right off the site and not have to worry about hunting all the pieces down on your own. You can buy piece by piece too. It’s such a fabulous thing for designers and consumers alike! They also offer free shipping on a lot of their items– especially on a lot of their larger offerings (like sofas!), which is a huge savings!


When it came time to shop for a new sofa for our living room, I checked S&N first, since I knew they carried only the best quality items.  I knew I could find things on their site that I can’t find at my local furniture stores or other online furniture sites. Purchasing a sofa was a pretty big deal; at least it was for me. I wanted style that would transition with my ever-changing whims and comfort was key. We spend a lot of time in our living room– a lot. It needed to be comfy! I also wanted a good quality piece because I didn’t want to have to replace it again in 5 years.

I instantly gravitated toward the Murnan Sofa. Swoon! It checked off the little boxes in my design loving head. HELLO! Sofa of my dreams! It has completely transformed the look of our living room and I couldn’t be happier with the design and quality. Scout & Nimble also has white glove delivery which is so great.  It came to my door unpackaged and carefully placed by professionals.

Here’s how our new sofa has added style and transformed the entire look of our living room.

I have another great source to share with you today for bedding. Crane & Canopy has been a go-to resource for stylish bedding in my home. I have used their bedding in two rooms now. The most recent being our bedroom makeover.

Crane & Canopy offers designer bedding at great prices because they work directly with manufacturers and ship from their own factory. You are getting the same quality bedding you would get from a department store at an even better price.

They are also a company that gives back in a big way. Everytime you purchase Crane & Canopy bedding you are giving someone a safe night’s sleep. Crane & Canopy works hand- in-hand across the nation with women’s domestic violence shelters to provide their bedding to women in need. When you purchase they donate. How great is that!?!

They also love pets, and our little Maltese, Zoey, had the pleasure of being on their blog. If you follow them on social you’ll see their cutie-pie pug, Gus.

You can browse their bedding collections and home decor for something that speaks to your style. They offer very stylish bedding in all styles from solid, patterned, textured, and reversible options. I’m partial to the Linden Black Border Set that I used in our bedroom design. They also carry their own line of beautiful sheet sets and home accessories.

See our bedroom reveal with the Crane & Canopy Linden Black Border Set here.

I’d like to thank Crane & Canopy for sponsoring this post and providing the bedding set used in our bedroom design. I have used their bedding in our home for over a year now and have been so happy with it. This is a company that I love to share with you and all opinions in this post are 100% mine.

Stuck on Hue Custom Pillows and a GIVEAWAY!

Custom Designer Pillows from Stuck on Hue

Last week, I shared the reveal of our bedroom design. I love the changes I made in there so much!  When I design a space of my own, it is a mix of styles. Always traditional foundations with modern influences and a pop of color. I mix high-end with thrifty finds and love to bring in texture. One of my secret weapons for achieving a polished look is to incorporate designer fabrics into the mix. One of my favorite go-to sources for custom designer pillows is the Etsy shop Stuck on Hue.

Room designed by Kristin Cadwallader | Bliss at Home

Adding designer fabric through pillows is a lot more cost-effective than upholstering an entire piece of furniture and takes your whole look up a notch.  Designer fabrics are so wonderful to the touch and you can definitely tell the difference. Stuck on Hue carries my FAVORITE designer fabrics. Seriously, every designer fabric I love is there!  Stuck on Hue also makes them to order in a variety of sizes.

As you see in our bedroom, the animal print pillow on our bed from Stuck on Hue adds some major style to the space. It completes the modern mix. I selected the Jamil pillow from their online shop, and ordered a custom size to my specifications. Stuck on Hue also carries the down inserts and can get them for those custom sizes which is so great.

The quality of a Stuck on Hue pillow is fantastic and they come with zipper closures which I prefer over a folded back. Their prices are very reasonable too.

In case there was any doubt in your minds…Hi, my name is Kristin and I have a designer pillow addiction. Like, I want all the pillows.

And now it’s shopping and giveaway time! Stuck on Hue is offering a special discount code for B@H readers starting today!

Friday Shop | Arhaus Furniture

Anyone else dreaming of sun and sea right about now?

If you have been hit heavy with cold and snow like we have here in Illinois, it is making warm weather dreams that much sweeter. It’s funny to think that in a few weeks we will be starting to head outdoors and get our yards and patios ready for spring!

Until then, I thought we’d take a little detour to Greece…


I always get in an extreme state of wanderlust at this time of year. The travel bug is sneaking up big time! Think of Greece under the sun with its bleached buildings, blue rooftops, and bougainvillea in full bloom. That was the inspiration for this mood board. I found the perfect outdoor furniture pieces at Arhaus Furniture to complete the look. They even have an outdoor furniture collection named Santorini, how perfect is that!?!  I have been familiar with Arhaus for a while now and a trip to one of their showrooms always delights. I can vouch for their quality and they have options for many styles and their online site is full of furniture and decor you will love.

A few of those pieces above are on sale, so grab them while their hot!

*Other exciting news: If you are in the Sarasota, FL area, the newest Arhaus store opens on the 27th!  You lucky-duckies in Florida can go check out the goods and adorn your patios right now.

Happy Friday friends! Think warm thoughts…the thaw will be here before we know it!

This is a sponsored post for Arhaus. For real–I love this shop and I am happy to share it with you. All opinions in this post are 100% my own.

Our New Animal Print Runner

Bonjour! I am saying bonjour a lot lately…only because we are planning our dream Paris trip for next year…but that is neither here nor there! Today is all about this fabulous animal print runner I added to our home. You may remember the inspiration post I did a couple of weeks back on animal print runners. I have been obsessed with this look to say the least. I finally pulled the trigger and now our hallway is walking on the wild side and I totally love it!


It was love at first sight. When I was looking online for a runner, I found the Safavieh Soho rug at Rugs USA. It has the perfect pattern repeat and I like that the spots are larger.


It was love at first touch too for everyone in the family. It’s 100% wool and hand-tufted, the quality is great. It’s nice and thick and the perfect weight for a runner. It’s my youngest’s favorite new place to play with his cars.

hallway-11 He says the spots make a maze. They totally do.


This hallway was the perfect place to add in some animal print without it being too much. The white walls and the contrast of the black light fixture are pretty perfect with the runner.




Be sure to check out Rugs USA  and see their entire collection of animal print rugs. You can also see the ever popular Moroccan Shag like I used in our living room. They have something for every taste and budget.

I am going to go back to driving through the car maze with my main daytime squeeze!!


What do you think of the animal print runner look? Love it or leave it? It may not be for everyone, but it certainly is for me! It adds a richness and a little pattern play to a neutral space.

This post is brought to you in partnership with Rugs USA. As always, I only share what I love and the little things that make my heart go pitter-patter. All opinions expressed are 100% mine.

January Month in Review


Happy February, everyone!

January was a busy month as we have been working on several projects for 2015. I enjoy doing these Month in Review posts because it is nice to have all the posts from the month in one organized recap. This way you can easily revisit something, see all the posts from a series, or catch up if you missed one. Here’s our January Month in Review and it is full of design and some DIY you can tackle on any given weekend.


My office space had to be moved again due to the remodeling going on around here. This simple DIY was the jumping off point for my new workspace and a bedroom refresh.

Our DIY library wall is one of my favorite projects we have finished in our home and it got taken up a notch with some beautiful grasscloth and a little help from Walls Republic.

We have quite a few design projects going on right now. Even some I haven’t shared yet! I shared the design process of our bedroom refresh in a series the month of January. I’m just waiting on one more thing to arrive and we can photograph it and share the reveal soon! I just love the way it is coming together.

One very large project we have been tackling this month is our bathroom makeover. This is a complete gut and remodel project. We haven’t been sharing the process on the blog and we are saving all the details for the big reveal. There is a lot going on behind the scenes on this one and it is the design project that I am most excited about so far in 2015! We did share the design plans so you could get an idea of what we have been doing around here. You can get some behind the scenes teasers on our Instagram too.


Bathroom Makeover Plans


With a new year comes new office supplies and I shared my favorite ways to stay organized in 2015.


On My Desk 2015

I have been busy sourcing decor for our bathroom remodel and shared some of my finds that will totally pump up the style in your bathroom.

After the holidays and the decluttering, it’s nice to refresh your decor and wardrobe a bit. I found some awesome finds that won’t hurt your pocketbook at Target.


My Target Style Finds


So much inspires me in the world of design and I like to share the love. I shared some great examples of how to add animal print into your space in a tasteful way.

The January/February issue of HGTV Magazine hit newsstands and I had fun collaborating on a design around a basic sofa.

Our February projects are in full swing and we are still working away on our bathroom remodel.  I will also have some Valentine’s Day decor and ideas to share soon too.

We were snowed in yesterday and enjoyed a family day at home. Anyone else in the same boat? We got a foot of snow and it was blustery, so school was cancelled and Dave couldn’t commute to work. It’s coming your way East Coast friends! Stay warm!!

My Latest Target Style Finds

#TARGETSTYLE2 shirt | shoes | flatware | figurines | light

Hey! So, at the end of January I start to get antsy. I want to buy new clothes, but I want to wait until I shed the last of those holiday pounds. I want to spruce up the house, but I don’t want to spend a lot because, let’s face it,  we just got done spending over the holidays. Plus, there’s the whole we just edited our spaces excuse. So, here are some light on the pocketbook finds that will feed that desire to refresh, but won’t break the bank from non other than Target. Target, the place you cannot enter without buying at least 2 things you didn’t go in there for.

Hey, how did that make it into the cart? Kids, did you throw that pair of ladies leopard shoes in there when I wasn’t looking?! Can’t take you guys anywhere! Well, alright!  Just this once…”

OK, I’ve never said that, but you get it. I just did a guilt-free splurge on the items above because I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. They are my latest Target style finds and some I bought in store and others are online only. It cures the shopping urges I stated above. I’ve been wanting that gold flatware FOREVER and it is finally back in stock. I’m excited it will be here before our annual Valentine’s Day dinner which I am starting to plan. I’m going for a vintage glam mix this year.

Other than that, we will be working on the gold and marble goddess. Getting closer to the finish line!

Have a fab weekend!

Sorry for my absenteeism earlier this week. We are facing round 3 of strep throat in our family. It is the illness that does not want to leave. Pretty much like the unwanted house guest or Cousin Eddie, if you catch my drift. We have done all the necessary things to try to rid it out of our family, but it is just hanging around like a creepy cousin making all of us uncomfortable. Hopefully, the stronger meds will send it packing this time!

Since I had no desire or energy for that matter to work on anything, I did manage to do some online shopping for our bathroom remodel. Oh, you guys!! The gold and marble goddess…I am ALL ABOUT this makeover! I’m saving this for a big reveal though…no in-process sharing this time, unless you catch my occasional tease on Instagram.

It is full of some gorgeousness with a side of vintage. A few flea market scores have totally added some uniqueness to this space too. We are going to try to have it finished by the end of the month to share with you soon!

As you see above, I rounded up some key things you need for a well-adorned bathroom. These bathroom accessories are the extras that add personality. It’s those extra details that really polish a space and make it feel warm and welcoming. Plus, this bathroom we are working on is the only bathroom on our main floor. It has to function as a guest bath for visitors too.

Until we have the big gold and marble goddess reveal, I will be sharing more about our bedroom design and some new additions to our living room.

My Favorite Office Accessories of 2015

Another year, another way to keep stylish and organized. I love to purchase a few new desk accessories with the beginning of the new year. It’s such a great motivator and pick-me-up.

Being organized is such a huge key to success for me! Without planners, lists, and a place to keep things I use everyday, it would be straight chaotic up in here!

Your workspace, no matter how big or small, should be an inspiring place. Chic office accessories make all the difference. If you have to spend a lot time there, it might as well put you in a good mood, right?

Here are my favorite office accessories of 2015. All of them are on my desk and keeping me chic and organized for another blogging year.



artwork | pencil cup | calendar | wrapping paper | pencils | 2015 plannerweekly desk pad


This year, I embraced flower power and wanted the wall over my desk to be full of happy vibes. I adore this Peony Bouquet Print for its colors and peonies are one of my favorite flowers.


Gold and acrylic office accessories are still a favorite around here. I indulged in my love of Kate Spade with this Kate Spade New York Acrylic Pencil Cup. It says “a stroke of genius” engraved inside. Super cute!


I HAVE TO HAVE a calendar in plain view. My time flies by between work and the kids. A lot of times, I am quickly checking dates for something. If I am looking at my email to check something, all I have to do is glance up and see the calendar. I can’t tell you how helpful this is and a time saver. When I first saw the 2015 Les Fleurs Calendar, I knew we needed to have a hot date together (get it, I am so funny…to myself and probably myself only). The colors and artwork are A-MA-ZING!


Rifle Paper Co. is KILLING IT lately! This Emerald Peonies Wrapping Paper can be used for so much more than just wrapping paper. I knew it would make some pretty fabulous wall art, so that is just what I did. I was inspired by the De Gournay wall paper panels that I love so much. This is my really inexpensive version of the look. I have another sheet leftover so I am thinking of lining my desk drawers or making book covers with it.


I have learned over the years that I am a 7-year-old-child and need to write things down in pencil so I can easily erase them.  Deadlines change, post line-ups get altered. I am a planner, but you need to be flexible in blogging. Shipments arrive damaged or late, I may get inspired by something and want to write on that instead of what I had planned. Pencils are just a better tool for me. Plus, I prefer to draw designs in pencil. It’s my inescapable artist background. I just treated myself to these girly themed She is pencils.


I am so 1993, and this Sugar Paper 2015 Daily Planner is my grown-up Trapper Keeper. Creative people can be scattered-brained. Let’s face it, we are a unique breed. I love this planner because it is a good size and has monthly calendars and a day-by-day scheduler. I am an if-I-write-it-down-I-will-do-it kind of person. I like to check things off and organize my thoughts and schedules. I tried doing this on my phone, but it was a huge fail. I’m just a pencil and paper kind of girl.


Ah, yes! When I schedule my week for the blog, I then break it down into tasks to finish each day. With several projects going on and planning for new ones, it is a lot to balance. I love this weekly desk pad for doing just that. This helps me manage my time each day. One day may read: source bathroom accessories, reply to this email, write this post, paint this room, photograph this project, etc. It really helps me fit in what needs to be done and helps me spread it out over the week so it is doable. Without doing this, trust me, nothing would get done in a workable time frame!

There’s what’s on my desk for 2015 and maybe a little too much insight into how I operate!

Let’s make this year amazing!
