I have never been happier with the result of a project quite like this. After a mishap with ordering too little of the grasscloth and finally finishing the install, I can honestly say- it was worth the effort. This modern traditional parlor is better than I could have ever imagined it and I’m looking forward
I used to have rug commitment issues but now I have art commitment issues. In my early days of living on my own, I could have a room completely furnished (and art hung on the walls) and still be lacking a rug. I just never met a rug that spoke to me (within my budget).
Well, that didn’t take long. I suppose I should have done a tester before I mocked up the boards for the parlor refresh. What looks good on paper does not always look good on the walls. French Gray is out… but here is what I’m considering and why the change.
This week kicks off the Spring One Room Challenge which means I’ve got a fire lit under my butt to finally add some panache to the Parlor. As you may remember from this post, we renovated our 110-year-old condo in 2019 and have been slowly filling in the nooks and crannies (like the dry bar

This year, I’ve decided to participate in the One Room Challenge. If you aren’t familiar with the One Room Challenge, it’s a virtual design challenge that inspires you to finish that space in your home. We have a lot of spaces that have been left to hemming and hawing after our renovation and it’s time to nip those projects
It’s been a long 3 months of work, but we couldn’t be more excited to share the final reveal of our outdoor entertaining oasis with the Home Depot and Traeger Grills. Our condo’s courtyard had mainly been left to neglect over the past few years. However, with the help of Home Depot and a little
The #ThisRuffHouse renovation we did last summer has garnered a lot of questions from you all on Instagram. There have been a few additional projects in the works (like our gorgeous Dry Bar) but I gotta say, as for the transformation itself, I still cannot believe that this is the same house. The house had
The final reveal of the dry bar nook is here! After months of trying to figure out how to add some color to our all-white kitchen, we finally decided to turn the space that was supposed to be a coat closet into a dry bar. And if you come to a crossroads with this decision
