Home Decor and Remodel FAQs




I can hardly believe it’s been three years since my first blog post on the most popular home decor and remodeling FAQs!

Been keeping a running list on my phone, and these five questions come up enough times to warrant another follow up FAQs post.

So, let’s just get straight into it, shall we?

Question: What is the butcher block on your counter? Who makes it and where can I get it?

This is a Boos Block. This is the one we have, I got ours here.

I’ve also seen them elsewhere – like on Amazon.

Another, less expensive alternative is this round wood tray for less than $65.

Question: Who makes these and where can I find those butterfly prints?

These prints are by Natural Curiosities. I’m a big fan of this company.

They make great art for the home.

Obviously I’m pretty biased here, but they’re even prettier in person.

I recently saw them for sale here.




Question: What color is your front door painted?

Just like our blue butler’s pantry, it’s painted in a high gloss black by Fine Paints of Europe.

The brass lion doorknocker is from Amazon.

Question: Where is your front stair runner from?

The stair runner is by Stark Carpet.

I found a similar, less expensive Sisal option here.

This option could work too!

Question: What breed is your dog?

Cosmo is a Havanese.

They’re GREAT with kids!

Havanese have the sweetest disposition.

You can read a little bit more about him here.

After the first few (tough) puppy months, he settled into our family and our lives so perfectly!
