Fun Fluff

Fun fluff two days early. Aren’t you lucky!


It’s a special week because you get Fun Fluff on a Wednesday! Solely because I wasn’t in the mood to write a real blog post / I did a really bad job at taking progress pictures this week. So maybe you’ll get a real post on Friday.

I love these episodes of design trends by the decade (1900s – 1940s and 1950s – present) that the Your Home Story podcast did.

And also! IKEA catalogs from the 1950s until now.

I simply adore this little pink bathroom.


I don’t know if this is a good solution, but I appreciate that the Raleigh Police Department trying to do more than just remove confederate statues, change names of buildings named after racists, and stop using phrases (master bedroom, blacklist, master list, etc.). I think those things are important and long overdue, but also just feel very superficial.

Enjoy the rest of your week,


Fun Fluff

Get your own dinosaurs, read some great books that take place in North Carolina, redo your kitchen in bold colours, and plan a productive backyard get-together. I’ve got so many ideas for you. You’re welcome.


There was exciting neighborhood drama near the Mulberry House, so it’s a good thing a neighbour told me to be “vigilant and armed.”

I can have dinosaurs in my backyard!

I finally read Where the Crawdads Sing and absolutely loved it. And then I read A Good Neighborhood which I also absolutely loved and cannot recommend enough. It provides a scary accurate depiction of life in suburban North Carolina.

Last week we took a day trip to Salisbury, North Carolina, which I’ll tell you more about another time, but I couldn’t not tell you about the ice cream truck we stumbled upon.

I love this yellow kitchen trend. I’m not bold enough to go all yellow, but I’m putting in a little yellow surprise in the Mulberry House kitchen.

Speaking of bold colours in the kitchen, I love these to pieces.

I love this idea for a backyard get-together.

Make it a great weekend,

DIY and bathroom design inspiration, the fixer upper of my dreams, and parenting advice about travel.

Hey hey,

This is the fixer upper of my dreams. Please let me know if you would like to buy it for me.

Daniel from Manhattan Nest points out that bedside tables and coffee tables are the worst. I’ll add that dining room tables are also the worst. But he has an awesome solution for bedside tables that I might have to steal.

I’m definitely going to take a lot of inspiration from this casual, timeless bathroom.
