happy friday + barcelona/mallorca suggestions!17 Mar 2017

Gray Malin Barcelona Beach Print

Happy Friday all! This spring is seriously flying by, and I just realized that in a month and a half, my family and I are heading to Spain! We have been planning this trip for over a year, and I'm getting excited (and nervous) to go on a far away trip with both kids for the first time. I tell people all the time..."Just go for it! Your kids will be fine!" But now that it's my turn, of course, I am thinking about the long flight, jet lag, and trying to get around in a country we have never been to. If any of you have been to Barcelona and/or Mallorca, I would LOVE your suggestions of things to do, eat, see...anything! We already have places to stay but I need to start figuring out what we should do while we're there.

Thank you, thank you in advance! And have a spectacular weekend!

oh joy for chatbooks!16 Mar 2017

Chatbooks

Today, we're launching a very special set of Oh Joy covers and designs exclusively for Chatbooks! If you don't already know about Chatbooks, they make it SO easy to create photo books right from your Instagram account, Facebook or camera roll (did you see this hilarious viral video?!). 

Oh Joy for Chatbooks

Capturing and preserving memories is so important to me. We live in a time when it's so easy to take photos, but then we often forget about them while they sit in our phones. I love that these books make it easy to take the digital images we have saved on our phones and put them into a printed book you can treasure forever. We're thrilled to partner with Chatbooks for a limited edition set of six Oh Joy designed hardcover and softcover books. Each book can hold between 30 and 366 pages and starts at $14 for softcover and $19 for hardcover.

Oh Joy for Chatbooks

Each Oh Joy book comes with a set of optional designed inside pages with numbers from one to twelve, so that you can use each book to document each month in your baby's first year. Or use them to note how many years old they are, for an anniversary, OR, simply as a way to make a series of books and number them like chapters.

Oh Joy for Chatbooks

Look how pretty the hardcover books are on a shelf together! You can stick to one of the cover designs or mix it up for multiple chapters to your story. Either way, they all mix and match together and are so fun to flip through. With Mother's Day coming up, they are extra perfect for gifts and really year round to chronicle those moments you want to look back on and treasure. You can purchase the Oh Joy Chatbooks right here for a limited time through July.

the best way to position your desk...13 Mar 2017

Desk-3-ways-19-blog

We're currently in the process of designing the new Oh Joy studio, so we've been playing around with desk set-ups to see what feels best and optimizes our work flow and ability to see and interact with each other. You might not have thought much about how you position your desk, but how you position it within the context to the rest of the room tells a bit about your personality and also helps to cater towards the type of work style you want to have. So whether you're setting up a new home office or thinking about switching the set-up at work, here are three ways to position your desk and the pros and cons of each...

happy friday + rearranging...10 Mar 2017

Oh Joy Furniture

Happy Friday friends! Do you ever have that need to do a big purge of stuff in your home and move things around from where they have been for years? This weekend, I am hoping to finally get to those tiny piles that have built up in thirty different places around my house. Exciting, I know. I hope you have a great weekend with more fun things in store than that ;)

P.S. Target is having a HUGE furniture sale through Saturday and our Oh Joy furniture is part of it (30% off till Saturday which is a BIG DEAL cause it doesn't happen often)!!!

Bomber-jacket-12-blog

For our newest Dressing the Team, we're all wearing a must-have trend piece right now—the bomber jacket. Unlike some trends (ahem harem pants), everyone—no matter what size or shape—can wear a bomber jacket. They are such a versatile piece that I currently have a few on rotation as my go-to layering option right now. Here's how we wore them...

When it comes to couches, most people stick with a neutral color—partially because they're afraid of committing to a brightly colored couch and partially because they don't know how to style the room around a colorful couch. Today, we're going to show you three examples of how to style around a bright couch! Here's how...
