When my dear friend Lindsay Hollinger of Casa Joshua Tree told me she had bought a second house to turn into a full time Airbnb, I knew we were in for some interior magic y’all. Together with her bff and business partner James Burial, they renovated and transformed this 1,200 square foot 3 bedroom home into the ultimate desert retreat, fondly named #ThatDesertHouse. Lindsay and James spent 6 months on renovations and did most of the work themselves - all the time, energy, and love they put into the space really shows.Read More

It’s no secret I’m a big believer in treatin yo’ self. Taking time for self care is so important, and indulging in things that help you relax and de-stress can have positive impacts on all areas of your life. One of my fave self care rituals is taking a luxurious bath! Add some Godiva chocolates and rosé from Simply Chocolate to the mix, and you’ve got an absolutely heavenly pairing. Keep scrolling for my tips on how to create a dreamy self care bath in your own home.Read More
Our first Christmas in the new house! I’ve been excited to celebrate in our lil Hobbit House all year, and I’ve really been looking forward to having a Christmas tree in the living room. However, I was a little nervous about how we’d make it fit with all our furniture. I also knew I wanted to incorporate florals into the tree, but wanted it to be subtle and easy to decorate - while still fitting in with our current decor. Cue this fab White Rose and Calla Lily Garland. Faux florals already arranged so all I have to do is throw a few on the tree? Yes please! Easy peasy and reusable for future years. I purchased 4 of them and in hindsight, could have actually used 5 or 6 for maximum impact, but I still love how they look! I bought them planning on incorporating our holiday ornaments into the tree as well, but when I sent Eddie into our garage to find them, he came back empty handed. Haaaaa! Oh, Eddie. I didn’t have the energy to go hunting through all the boxes we have in there myself, and I actually really like the simplicity of the garlands alone with the tree lights - so this year’s tree is remaining ornament-less.Read More
A lot of people think that because they live in a small apartment or house, they can’t entertain more than a couple guests at a time. For many small space inhabitants, dinner parties are seemingly out of the question - not enough room at the dining table, if you have a dining table at all. For those of you who’ve been following along here on B&B for a while, you know being dining-roomless was the case for me up until this year. But I’m here to tell you, don’t let small space livin’ discourage you from hosting fab get-togethers! I’m sharing an easy way to host a Friendsgiving or any type of dinner party, whether you have a dining room or not. The answer? Floor seating.Read More

The latest nook we’ve attacked in the hobbit house is our TV wall! It’s been pretty sad looking since we moved in, and was in desperate need of some good vibes styling. We’d been using our old coffee table as the TV stand and a crate to hold my records, but I was ready for something a bit sleeker. I wanted to share with you some tips on beautifying your own TV wall if you’ve been feeling blah about your current sitch, like I was!Read More
Our bathroom redesign is finally complete! From the moment we took a tour of our new place 5 months ago, I started designing in my head how I wanted the bathroom to look.
