Eagle Falls Lake Tahoe

Hello! I’m waving from Lake Tahoe. The shot above was taken at Eagle Falls on the south side of the lake — it is gorgeous here! And I’ve been instagramming up a storm.

Oh you guys. I’ve got such fun things coming up! At the end of this month, I’ll be hosting a big sale for Joss & Main — and the whole sale is inspired by my living room. In fact, I’ll be sharing a full photo tour of the living room on the day the sale launches. I’m so excited about it! And so pleased with how the room has come together.

I was supposed to shoot the living room last week, but the shoot was pushed to this week because we were waiting on a delivery. So as soon as we get home from Lake Tahoe, I’ll be putting on my stylist hat and whipping the living room details into shape.

It feels really good to get some of the spaces in the house finished. I think having photo shoots on the schedule works really well for me, because it creates a deadline so that I “finish” each room. It can be easy for me to procrastinate certain design decisions, but having a due date forces me to get into gear. Obviously, the room can and will change after the photo shoot, but it’s a great opportunity to get the details of the room in place, and then mark the space off my mental checklist and turn my attention to other projects.

For those of you who are curious, I thought it would be fun to share a little preview of what you’ll find in the upcoming sale. It’s still a couple of weeks away, so none of this is guaranteed — availability can change overnight! But this will still give you a good idea of what to expect. Take a look:

What do you think? Does anything here catch your eye? And how do you know when a room in your house is “finished”? Or is the design of your home an endless and ongoing process?

Mark your calendars! The Design Mom Sale for Joss & Main will launch on April 29th. Can’t wait!
