Purchase Unfinished Furniture for Staining


If you guys know, Bre from Rooms for Rent, then you know her style is fabulous! So we were thrilled to send her a quart of stain to try out.  Here's what Bre had to say!

The Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence



We’ve got palace pics! We toured one of the Medici Palaces & it was amazing! Can you picture living around such opulence? The thought is foreign to most of us Americans. But Italians grow up right next to the finest art in the world.

Restoration Hardware Modern Table Hack


Have you seen Restoration Hardware's new-ish branch, RH Modern? It's the same gorgeous RH look, but with the clean lines of mid-century modern pieces. I found this bedroom with the perfect "gray oak" furniture and I had to see if I could replicate it!

Archbasilica of St. John Lateran in Rome




We visited this church twice- once at Easter and it was totally packed!! Getting to see Rome at Easter was an experience I will never forget! Easter is Rome's biggest holiday with "pilgrims" coming from all over the world. We weren’t able to take a lot of photos but did get some cool footage of mass (see end of post). So, of course, we had to go back another time and really explore it!

Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence


This church is the STAR of Florence. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I swear I take photos of it every time we walk by- it’s so beautiful! And it’s story it pretty amazing. 🤓 Construction was started in the 1300’s but the dome was left unfinished for nearly 100 years because the technology to build it didn’t exist yet.
