have a grand long weekend!26 May 2017

Oh Joy Pattern Play

Happy Friday! Are you as excited for the long weekend as I am? We've had kitchen renovations happening in our office over the last couple weeks. While it's so fun to see it move along, it's also very distracting to have it be right there so close that I just want to agonize and make sure every detail is being done correctly.

This week, two of the ladies on my team—Angie and Julia—both celebrated their four year anniversaries at Oh Joy! How time flies...they've been around since I expanded Oh Joy from being just me to an actual office and in-person team. I'm so grateful they are still here helping me and the rest of the team create amazing things. The best is yet to come!

Have a great LONG weekend all! We'll see you back here on Tuesday after the Memorial Day holiday.

oh joy studio craft room: before and after!25 May 2017

Color-02-Before-blog

With the move to our new Oh Joy Studio earlier this year, we needed a designated room for making and crafting all the projects that you see here. We have so many supplies that needed to be organized and stored in a way that makes everything easy to find and help the crafting and styling team work as efficiently as possible. We recently invited the IKEA Home Tour Squad into our office to takeover the craft room, and they completely blew my mind. They made the space so much more functional and beautiful—and now it's the room that everyone in the office wishes they worked in. See below for a short video of the complete makeover and more before and afters!

The room is basically set up like a kitchen (without the appliances) which added SO MUCH functionality to a room that needs to hold so many things that are constantly in use.

The open shelving allows us to see everything that needs to be accessed while also storing odd-shaped items like our seamless rolls of paper.

The main work space is set up like a "T" and gives space for active projects in the works as well as a place to put things aside while drying or when working on multiple projects at one time. The combination of overhead and counter cabinets gives multiple options for storage both for everyday storage and for items that need to be tucked away for occasional use.

I can't say enough how much the organization of the space (and all the tiny things that needed a home) has helped us find things and keep everything in its place in a way that we would have never been able to do before. Thanks so much to the IKEA Home Tour Squad team who spent three days at our office working on this project. We had a blast and learned so much from them!

You can shop all the pieces in this room right here.

color adventures: a purple & blush sunroom...24 May 2017

Purple-blush-patio-blog

If you have space in your home that crosses between indoors and out—a sunroom, covered patio, enclosed porch—we love the idea of mixing indoor and outdoor to combine them into one very summer-y and happy space. With this month's Color Adventures in purple and blush, here's a look at a pretty sunroom space...

chic + comfy dresses...22 May 2017

Sonnet James

I am totally a dress person and wear them almost every day when the weather allows for it. But a lot of people say they can't wear dresses when they need to get a lot done or run errands or hang with their kids. Well, there are so many great options these days that are easy to wear, washable, and still look very put together. Here are a few of my favorites!
