smitten studio top 10 posts in 2013

2013 has been a wild ride! Here’s a round-up of Smitten Studio’s top 10 posts this year.

A Sunny Afternoon // Napkins & Serving Boards1. The launch of my line A Sunny Afternoon definitely takes the cake as one of the top moments of the year. See the original post here.

open shelving // cabin kitchen // smitten studio2. We finished work on the cabin (well, for now at least) that we slowly renovated ourselves, where the kitchen went from this, to this.

New Zealand Road Trip // Smitten Studio3. Rupert and I spent my birthday in New Zealand where we road tripped around the north island in a vintage Kombi. It was the trip of a lifetime (see part 1 & par 2).

DIY Garment Rack // Smitten Studio4. One of the top DIY projects from this year was this garment rack. (see all the DIY’s posts here)

stop-smell-the-roses-print15. My “Stop and Smell the Roses” print was featured in Glamour Magazine. I also spotted it in the home of Anika & Ken Yael Natori in Lonny Magazine, and in Julia Engel’s abode.

ikea tarva dresser DIY // smitten studio6. The other top Smitten Studio DIY of the year was this simple Ikea hack.

Style at Home // Sarah Sherman Samuel // Smitten Studio7. A big change in 2013 was with the selling of our home and the buying and moving into a fixer upper. Glitter Guide sent over a photographer for a Style at Home feature just weeks before we moved out. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to the first place Rupert and I owned together.

living room styling // smitten studio8. In the new house we started renovating by refinishing the floors, knocking down a few walls, and painting so that right now at least the living room is livable.

A Sunny Afternoon // Napkins & Serving Boards9. We sold out of the first collection of A Sunny Afternoon products much quicker then anticipated so I added new designs, stocked up on some of the favorites, and launched the winter collection with a pancake brunch with friends.

kitchen cabinets // smitten studio10. And finally, we started on the kitchen in the new house by completely gutting it and putting in new cabinets and countertops.

Happy Friday, and here’s to a happy 2014 to you all!

Introducing A Sunny Afternoon

I CAN NOT express how excited I am to announce the launch of my product line & online pop-up shop. It is LIVE folks. :)

a sunny afternoon launch via smitten studioYou may remember that I left my fulltime job about 6 months ago to make the move out on my own. It has been quite the roller coaster, stretching me well outside of my comfort zone at times, but I couldn’t be more grateful for the creative growth and the experiences that have come out of it. Most of all, I am happy to now share with you… A Sunny Afternoon.

P.S. Thank you all for the super sweet and encouraging comments from the sneak peak on Monday. It put a little extra spring in my step to get me through all this computer time!
P.P.S. With any new site there may be some kinks and quirks to work out. Let me know if something isn’t working for you and we will try and fix it right away.
