It's really lovely and the different textures are beautiful. I especially love that couch!

You said Texture and Textiles are your favorite elements, and that really shows. This is such a lovely home and, looking at the pictures, I actually wanted to touch all of the different textures. :)

The glass bottles scare me because I always drop my travel mugs. I might give this one a try.

On the other end of this, I like a clean and tidy home. Playdates stress me out because when my house is filled with lots of small children, it ends up in a huge mess. I know my kids are having fun, but I get more and more stressed as the playtime goes on. I prefer the park.

This is really lovely and such a great way to recycle.

We just replaced our washing machine and our living room rug. I love the rug, but I am so ridiculously excited about the new washer. It makes my life much, much easier these days.

I love wind chimes! I have a set that my grandfather made years ago from old pipes, and it's such a lovely sound.

I really love this! It's so light and airy, but the bright colors scattered around make it very interesting, too. And I just switched to a jute rug in my living room and I'm planning to layer a smaller rug over it. I was happy to see you do that, too. Lovely tour.

We are working with a company to do some renovations in our backyard, and we just decided to use gravel is a small area of the yard.

ThredUp is an awesome online consignment store that is extremely picky about what they accept. I have sold clothes with them and also bought things for myself and my children. I try to only buy fair trade and ethically made clothing, too.

I just started Season 2, but is "polished" the right word to describe Fig's character? With the hair, tight suits and big jewelry, she seems like more of a caricature to me.

Someone told me there's an online Lego rental store, sort of like Netflix, but for Lego sets. I haven't checked it out yet, though.

We just bought new furniture, but while I was trying to extend the life of my dark green couch, I used two different slipcovers from Sure Fit. They weren't perfect by any means, but with pillows and throws, they looked better than the old couch by itself. You could do a little research and try to find one that works. And eBay and Overstock are great places to find Sure Fit slipcovers at a discount.

Where I live, a lot of allergy sufferers wear hats when they go outside. I haven't resorted to that yet, though.

This is such a gorgeous home. I'm most impressed by how seamlessly your daughter's things are incorporated into the entire home, not just a playroom or a bedroom. When I first looked at the tour, I thought several children lived here. Well done!
