Trend Roundup: Light Wash Wood

I’ve always loved the natural look of woodwork in a home and I’m so glad the trend of painting everything white is starting to come to an end. Natural wood can last for hundreds of years and can be refinished again and again to look like new. As I’ve done projects in my house, I’ve tried to stick to the original wood character as much as possible, which has meant a lot of restoration projects.


I’m loving the trend of light to medium wood that is finished to show the beauty of natural grain. It can create a great focal spot for any room. See some of my favorite inspo below!

Trend Roundup: The Best Distressed Jeans

Distressed jeans have become more and more popular over the past few seasons. This style is a little tricky to make work in a non-casual setting and isn’t always the most slimming style. I recommend trying on different cuts (boyfriend, straight legged, and skinny) to see what works best for your body type. Since I have bigger thighs, I prefer a skinny so that it balances the length of the leg.

To make the outfit work for business casual, I pair with a dressy blouse or sweater to make the look more pulled together. In a casual setting, the jeans are super cute with a simple t shrit.
