You asked for more shots from this makeover. Happy to oblige because it might be my favorite. Shot by @tessaneustadt thanks @ginny_macdonald and @melburstin

I miss this makeover and might need to recreate it in the Portland project. Also how cute are those diy Pom Pom curtains? To see the rest of this room search @sothebysrealty on the blog). 📷 @tessaneustadt for EHD @ginny_macdonald

Tonight we enacted our first ‘Kid-Couch-Car-wash’. If you are unfamiliar with the practice its basically where the kids are really dirty and need a bath, but they are so happy watching a movie and the parents (us) don’t want to enforce normal schedule and disrupt movie night (due to laziness and/or fatigue) to bathe their dirty bodies. So I brought a bucket of warm water, soap and a wash cloth and washed them each off the rug while they watched their show. We did face, hands, pits, privates and feet. They thought it was hilarious but convenient. I agreed. At first I thought I was a bad parent but then I was like ‘wait, are we actual just genius’? Can this be a new thing on Saturday nights??? Double tap if you are into it. #kidcouchcarwash

Looking for stairway inspiration and sure wish we didn’t have to worry about ‘safety’ because man, I love these railings from @moredesign.es

My thoughts on the border crisis are on the blog, finally. At the end I asked my readers who support this administration what their hopes and expectations were/are for immigration policy. I try to see both sides of every story but this one has been hard. (Beautiful illustration by @carolynsuzuki (which you can buy on her site - 100% of the profits go to @raicestexas and #theflorenceproject). Link in profile if you want to join the conversation.

Design Agony is back by popular demand! @ginny_macdonald is on the blog today saving the (design) world one awkward window treatment at a time. If you’ve ever struggled with bay windows, SUPER high windows (and ceilings) or tight, annoying corner windows, you won’t want to miss today’s post. Link in bio. 📷 by @tessaneustadt

The kids bath I Design, You Decide is up on the blog and ONE of them has slab on top of front and top of the tub like so. Head to the blog to see what the materials are and VOTE, but meanwhile double tap if you are into this slab top tub or like some readers, if you think it’s going to get yucky because it’s real stone. I have kids, but I’m not scared...should I be? Link in bio. Bathroom of Jenna Lyons in collaboration with @meyerdavis, 📷: @simonpwatson.

Purple is a tricky color for decorating (and frankly is a bit controversial in our offices), but you can’t deny that it’s staking it’s claim in interiors lately. Today on the blog, Editorial Director @arlynhernandez is talking all about the lilac trend and why she, as a longtime purple skeptic, might just be rethinking her stance (spoiler alert: this kitchen has something to do with it). Initial thoughts? Link in my bio. 📷 by @devonbanksphoto via @dwellmagazine

Every summer, I feel compelled to add more color, pattern and FUN to my wardrobe. And a summer dress is a super easy way to check all three of those boxes. So this summer, I forced myself to try shopping for dresses that break my usual mold. I only bought a couple, but I loved a lot so we rounded them all up on the blog for your weekend shopping pleasure. (Sadly the dress in the photo above is no longer available, but don’t worry, there are some other VERY pretty floral dresses in the round up.) Link in my bio.

On my way up to the mountain house this weekend to make EVEN MORE decisions and was feeling the inspiration itch. One look at what you all were up to over at the #ehdweekendmakeover hashtag (which you can follow now guys!) and I did a happy dance in my car seat when I saw this green kitchen from @jaclynpetersdesign. If anyone has a project they’re super excited about, don’t forget to tag it with #ehdweekendmakeover when posting to Instagram because I WANT TO SEE & SHARE, PLEASE.

Your home’s lighting plan is so much more than switching the flip on whatever overhead bulbs came with your place. Today on the blog, we’re going over some super scientific rules for how to layer your lighting, as well as how to expertly pair a floor and table lamp with some A+ real-life examples (like @bradytolbert’s living room here) and 20 shoppable combos.

OPINIONS NEEDED: The past few months, the whole office has been focused on two big projects (the Mountain Fixer + the Portland Fixer) which have been creating a lot of in-depth design content for the blog, but this also means we haven’t been able to do as many makeovers or styled shoots. And that means less original content to share with you here. So here’s my question: Would you be interested in seeing some more curated, inspirational imagery here on my Instagram feed (work that isn’t EHD original but is BEAUTIFUL and inspiring to me, like this shot of @katherinepower & @justincoit’s living room designed by @jakealexanderarnold, featured in @archdigest) or would you prefer we keep posting favorite photos of our past projects and only share inspiration images when we truly don’t have something that illustrates the story we’re trying to tell? My goal is to share inspirational, educational, or entertaining content every day. Stuff that I would be excited to see or read. Once we finish Portland and the Mountain Fixers, we’ll have SO many pretty new photos to flood your feeds with but in the meantime, thoughts? Stick with original content or mix in what inspires us?
