dressing the team / jumbo florals

For our newest Dressing the Team, we're all about jumbo florals for summer! Since this story is all about pattern, everyone chose a bold floral piece that worked best for their figures. Here's how we wore them...

color-blocked floating shelves... 6 Jun 2017

color-blocked floating shelves

It's no secret we love color-blocking around here. It's an easy way to add interest to a wall with color. Adding a simple floating shelf can make any wall more decorative and functional. But...it looks especially good when you paint the shelves to match your wall. And then it looks even cooler when the wall is color-blocked! Here are some examples...

from this to that: earrings to brooch! 5 Jun 2017

Earring-brooch-blog

We love coming up with ways to use things simply in unexpected ways! This is not as much of a DIY (like our last From This to That) as it is a style tip. You know when you see those dangly earrings that are super pretty but you know if you were to wear them, they would be too big or to heavy on your ears? Well, simply turn them into a brooch!

from this to that: earrings to brooch!

I came up with this idea because I alway want to be that person who can rock some amazing statement earrings but I can never keep them on for more than an hour and always go back to my dainty stud earrings. So, one day, I decided to attach them to my jacket and have been doing it ever since!

from this to that: earrings to brooch!

You can use just one statement piece, but we like it best when layered with a few other smaller earrings or pins as well!

happy friday + donuts... 2 Jun 2017

Oh Joy Donuts

Did you know that today is National Donut Day? This is one holiday I am very happy to celebrate! Next week, I will be in Sweden visiting the IKEA headquarters for a little work trip, but you'll still find all of our regular daily posts right here. And I'll be sure to share some of my trip on Instagram from Sweden. I hope you have a great weekend full of sweet treasures!

dresses to play in... 1 Jun 2017

Oh Joy / Sonnet James

My favorite pieces of clothing are ones that are both comfortable AND cute. Because—let's be honest—some things we wear are highly uncomfortable and we just suck it up because we love the way it looks. But now that I have to be on-the-go and active with my kids waaaay more often, I need more pieces that I can move in while still looking somewhat pulled together. One of my favorite clothing brands—Sonnet James—just released a ton of new pieces made specifically to play in (that happen to also be really cute). So, today, I am showing off a few of my favorite pieces with you...

styling with large prints...31 May 2017

styling with large prints

I love large prints. Often people don't commit to large prints because 1) They are more expensive than smaller ones or 2) They don't know if they can commit to one statement piece. But if you fall in love with an image and could see it in your home for years to come, try a large print. They make a statement and set a tone in a space that you'll love. See a few ways to style them right here...

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!

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...
