Vinotive

Hey there February, you just came out of nowhere! Can you believe we are heading into Valentines day? It is one of my most favorite times of year. How can you not love love? How can you not love flowers, hearts, candy, and wine?! Speaking of which, I think I’m going to style my husband’s bar as a Valentine’s Day gift to him, and I’m starting with Vinotive.

A couple years back, my husband stumbled on some really high quality wine at an estate sale and decided to resell it. It became a side business and hobby for him. As a result, we ourselves ended up with quite the collection. Much of our wine cannot just be screwed open and enjoyed instantly. It needs to be treated well, aerated, and often decanted.

Organic Bedding

I dream about naps all day, if that’s possible, but being a mom means I worry a lot and sleep less than the average. When renovating and remodeling our master “retreat” one really important factor came to mind: THE BEDDING!! I have to admit, I’ve compormised quite a bit on our bedding in the past because our bedroom over all just wasn’t where I wanted it, but I realize now how important it was to do an overhaul and use only quality organic bedding. There’s A LOT of brands out there, one of them is Bunnycup Embroidery and that alone can be overwhelming, but if you narrow down by price and quality there is only one option: Boll & Branch

Herringbone Flooring

I have an undeniable passion for fashion, which is why my blog mostly focuses on style, but my desire to create does not discriminate. After YEARS of pinning my dream home ideas to Pinterest, like herringbone flooring,  I finally decided to take the plunge and put those ideas to use. We moved into our home a couple years ago knowing we would eventually rip almost everything out: kitchen, flooring, bathroom fixtures, lighting, cabinets… etc etc. It was only a matter of time and budget before we embarked on the renovation journey.

Today, I’m excited to say, we are starting with our master suite. Our master suite is on the lower level of our two level home. The first step was to meet with my best friend and interior design genius (like, literally.. she’s incredible) Kristi Lofstedt.  We discussed ideas for the room and an over all look. I wanted so many things: classic, edgy, and unique… but also I’m a sucker for making EVERYTHING monotone. If it was left to me we would end up with black, white and gray EVERYTHING. Kristi showed me ideas that appealed to my monotone desires while managing to bring in colors and prints to emphasize my personal edginess.

She accompanied me to Floor & Decor where I chose the flooring for our master that we will carry into the rest of the lower level in phase 2. Today I’m sharing with you the first step of picking flooring with Floor & Decor.
