Whether on Instagram, here on the blog or in real life, I constantly receive questions about the same items in our home.
“Where did you get that, where can I buy that, where is that from?” etc.
Not that I mind answering the same questions over and over again (note my ever-so-slight sarcasm), but I figured that creating a blog post with all the answers (to which I can direct future inquiries) was a good idea. So here we are!
If you’ve never asked me, “Where is that from” then maybe this post isn’t for you. Then again, maybe it is. Maybe you didn’t even know you needed wallpaper in your life until you saw Mila’s nursery and thought, “Wow, I need wallpaper in my life.” (Watch, it’s going to happen.) Either way, I hope you find this information useful.
If you ever have any questions about something you see in our home (whether on Instagram or here on the blog), ask away. Who knows, it may develop into another post, ha!
1. Floral Wallpaper Mural in Mila’s Room
The wallpaper mural was a gift to us from Walls Need Love when we partnered together on the One Room Challenge to design Mila’s nursery. It’s available in a wallpaper and mural options – the difference being that the mural is a large-scale rendering of the artwork whereas the wallpaper is more of a repetitive design. We have the mural installed. It is called the “Clara” mural.
The mural is also available at Wayfair for almost $100 less, depending on which size you need.
2. Living Room Leather Bench, Turned Coffee Table
The faux leather bench from our living room is available exclusively at Overstock. The retailer is always having some sort of sale, so if you want a better deal, I suggest checking the site regularly for a promotion.
3. Gray, Chesterfield Sofa
We bought our sofa from a Canadian company called Structube. It was quite a steal at about $600, but it’s currently on sale for even less than that. I will say that Chesterfield-style sofas aren’t the most comfortable because of their straight back. So if you’re looking for a spot to lounge on, maybe keep looking. Otherwise, it’s a stylish choice.
Wayfair has a similar option (looks-wise) but much higher quality. It typically retails for nearly $4.5K but is currently on sale for 65% off!
4. Master Bedroom Light Fixture
Our chandelier in our master bedroom is called the “Pontil” by George Kovacs. Ours is from Wayfair, but it’s no longer available on their site. It is, however, sold on Lumens.com in brushed nickel and honey gold.
5. Living Room Barrel Chairs
The chairs from our #ChairChatsWithMila photo series are designed by Coaster Company. I bought ours on Amazon, but they’re also available on Overstock. Amazon’s price always fluctuates, so it’s nice to have options.
The chairs have a faux velvet fabric and are super easy to clean; just wipe with a damp rag.
6. Kitchen Pulls and Knobs
I bought our kitchen pulls and knobs in Home Depot. They come in various size options (as well as a different color option or two, I believe). They are Liberty Hardware’s “Artesia” collection in “Sedona Bronze.”
7. Mila’s Crib + Matching Changing Table
This set is from DaVinci Baby’s “Jenny Lind” collection. If I recall correctly, I bought the crib from Amazon and the dresser from Walmart – because at the time of my purchase those two retailers had the lowest prices on those particular items. Unfortunately, the dresser is currently sold out at Walmart, on Amazon and every other retailer I checked.
You have the option of a simple changing table from the same collection. It may not have drawers, but it serves its purpose all the same. It’s currently available from Wayfair, Target, Buy Buy Baby, Hayneedle and Amazon. So shop around for the best deal!
8. Living Room Geometric Artwork
The artwork in our living room was made by yours truly. You can buy digital downloads of it in my Etsy shop (piece 1 and piece 2) and print on engineering prints at Staples, which won’t cost you but a couple bucks.
The frames I bought at IKEA.
9. Kitchen Cabinets
Speaking of IKEA, our kitchen cabinets are from there as well. It’s the “SEKTION” kitchen series with “GRIMSLÖV” doors.

10. Kitchen Granite Countertops
We purchased our granite from a local shop called Rocky Top Custom Countertops, but this particular granite – called “Luna Pearl” – is widely available across the U.S. Another common name for it is “Salt and Pepper.”
11. Curtains in Mila’s Room
Mila’s curtains are the prettiest (and most expensive!) curtains I’ve ever bought. But I also get asked about the so, so much because they’re just that pretty.
12. Our Record Player
Contrary to popular belief (and much to my dismay) our record player is not vintage. I bought it brand spankin’ new at Wayfair.
This particular model is called the “Keepsake USB 3-Speed Turntable” and is available in “Tan” and “Black.”
13. Kitchen Backsplash
Our kitchen backsplash tile was gifted to us from Wayfair when I worked with the retailer on a set of tiling guides for their website.
It is manufactured by EliteTile and called “Retro Porcelain Lantern Mosaic Tile” in ”
14. Kitchen Sink
I love our kitchen sink and am so glad I went with an oversized, undercount option. (You can read all about my decision in an earlier post, appropriately titled “Making the Case for White, Undermount Kitchen Sinks“.)
15. Paint Color of Our Walls
Last but not least is the paint color on our walls.
Our entire house is painted one color: Farrell Calhoun’s “Metro” or “0530.” Unfortunately, Farrell Calhoun only has store locations in southeastern United States, but I’m sure any brand will be happy to color-match it for you as long as you know the exact swatch name or number.
