Links + Likes: Top Picks from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale 2017

Every year Nordstrom has a huge anniversary sale where new arrivals hit the shop at mega discounts before returning to their regular prices.

In tandem, HGTV Canada popped by and filmed a tour of my home (with Piper cameos, of course). In it, I also chat about my love for chips and candy, my design MO and share some intimate insight into my space, so please let me know what you think!

Since my last home update, I’ve changed about half of the rooms in my home—some in subtle ways, some in drastic ways. So let’s dive right in, room by room. (And as always, a huge source list by room is included below.) Continue reading
