Studio Tour

Take a tour of The Crafted Life's craft/photography studio!Earlier this year, you might remember me sharing the news that my friend Conrad and I got a studio. It was such a big step for my business and completely needed for a secret project I’ve been working on for the past few months (I’m getting SO close to revealing what it is). Now that it’s finally decorated, today is the day I can finally give you guys a tour!

West Elm was kind enough to help furnish some of the space so you can find links for the products below as well as additional photos over on their blog. And if you see something that’s not linked, just leave a comment and I’ll do my best to find the product for you. Now– to the tour!

Decor Crush: Millennial Pink

It’s no secret that I love pink, but there’s one shade in particular that’s caught my heart recently and that’s Millennial Pink. Though I don’t think the name is the greatest (I actually kinda hate it), my goodness, that color! It’s perfect for weaving into your decor because it packs a color punch while still being subtle. It almost even functions as a neutral if you ask me, and you should, because really, how is this not better than boring beige?

If you haven’t found a way to incorporate this year’s ‘it’ color into your home, there are ways to do it without feeling like you live in Barbie’s playhouse.  From big wall changes, to small decor details, there’s always a place for more pink. And here are just a few ideas to get you brainstorming!

First, the astroturf and table just didn’t weather well through the winter. Not only that, but they made the space feel super small since it was only a table for two in the corner. So much of my patio was left unused and I rarely found myself using the space because of it.  Continue reading…
