Peach, Peach or Peach?
It’s (finally!) entryway makeover time! We started with 30 paint chips on the wall, and we watched them change colors throughout the day. We pulled them down, one by one, until we had a top ten. And then a top eight. And then Lucy moved my chips to a different wall, and I saw our final choices, quite literally, in a whole new light!
In the end, the final selections for our peachy entryway paint project was narrowed down to four muddy-pinky-peachy Valspar colors – and then! Then, there was one. Valspar Milk Toast won our hearts, and due to our tall ceilings, we ultimately hired a painting crew to complete the task (which feels downright luxurious, and we’re cherishing every second).
Throughout the process, your enthusiasm was contagious! Thank you for always cheering us on, and we cannot wait to share the finished space with you!
Other Things This Week!
I’ve been considering Gua sha for years, and after reading (what feels like) thousands of tutorials and reviews of various products, I purchased the Empress Stone. I cannot wait for it to get here!
This is the prettiest example of mixed wood tones I’ve ever seen.
Holy smokes, I am obsessed with this One Room Challenge lineup! Who else is excited to see what this group creates?
CBD is what has been fueling my soul these days. As someone who lives with mild anxiety and takes a prescription for this very reason, it wasn’t until I added Equilibria to my daily routine that I realized, Okay, so this is what I should feel like! And by that, I mean that everyday CBD supplements have given me a more positive response to stressors. I sleep better. My monthly cramps have been less intense. And right now, Equilibria (the brand I use and love) has a sitewide offer for first-time subscribers of 30% off (no code needed)! You can stack that for an additional 15% off when you use my promo code: YELLOWBRICKHOME. See more about what I use in this highlight, if you’d like!
I haven’t been able to stop thinking about these gut-wrenching illustrations by Chanel Miller, in honor of Breonna Taylor:

My Kitty-colored Dream Coat, below, is back in (very limited) stock! When I shared it last week, so many of you were bummed it had briefly sold out. I wouldn’t sleep on this – it’s the most versatile jacket in my closet for in-between weather.
Just ordered this classic V-neck swimsuit in ‘Rosewood’! If I love it, I may need to pick it up in black, too. We plan on spending a lot of time on the beaches of Lake Michigan this summer.

Have a Peaceful Weekend
Take care of yourself this weekend, Friends. Your mental health and ability to be present is so important. We’re headed to Michigan for the weekend to continue prepping our Tree House for the upcoming Airbnb season – but also to relax and unwind as a family! Kitty is looking forward to zoomies in the large front yard, and Lucy can’t stop talking about the web swing.
What are you looking forward to most this weekend?
