Trusted Neutral Paint Colors for the Transitional Home - kaitlynhparker.com

Between painting just about the entire interior of the two homes we’ve owned so far, you could say I’ve spent a fair amount of time studying paint swatches and experiencing them on our walls first-hand. I’ve only ever used Benjamin Moore (BM) and Sherwin Williams (SW) and like them equally for the most part but […]

Here's What I Know About Mental Health - kaitlynhparker.com

I’ll start with this: Praise God, it’s no longer something I struggle with. Seriously, that’s not a passive or cliché statement. I’ll always give God the glory for helping me overcome depression, anxiety, and disordered eating. And I know firsthand, these are very real, very difficult, very crippling experiences for so many. And I certainly […]

Design Board: Dream Bedroom

I recently asked a question on my Story about what people’s favorite bedding was and got tons of responses! I think we’re all passionate about whatever helps to give us a good night’s sleep. I asked because we’ve had our bedroom set for a few years and it’s a) started creaking and b) we have […]

When my hair was blonder, I used to only wear silver jewelry. I thought gold jewelry didn’t look good on me, but over time I’ve come to looove it. And now that my hair is darker, I’ve been growing my collection of dainty gold pieces. (I’m still a fan of a little mixed metal action […]

Match Made in Wine Heaven: Bread & Butter - kaitlynhparker.com

With the quarantine in full swing, we’ve had our fair share of wine. We’re normally big Cab drinkers but lately have been enjoying Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and a bit of Rosé (although the hubs isn’t the biggest fan of that one). There’s a few brands we’d consider go-tos but none like Bread & Butter Wines. […]

We’ve finally decided to begin our living room refresh project which I’m SO excited for. We bought an IKEA couch a few years ago that’s served its purpose but I was never crazy about it. It started with an unassuming trip to Pottery Barn, where we were told they were having a private sale. And […]

I feel like I’m breaking the writing silence for myself today and if I’m being honest, it’s a bit uncomfortable. In some ways, it feels like a slow retreat. I feel the welling in my eyes and a tightness in my chest as I hold back a few tears. It feels like returning to an […]

Luxe Under $100 Gifts for Her - kaitlynhparker.com

Gift buying can be difficult at times because I’m sure we all want to give our loved ones something that feels really nice and special. But it can be tough to do when a lot of those options are over $100 and our gift list seems never-ending. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite […]

Connor and I joke constantly about how big of homebodies we are. As much as I love going out for a wine & dine kind of night, there’s something I just love about being at home. I’d honestly rather shop for home décor over clothes any day and love any opportunity to host a close […]

October Style List (A&F Sale) - kaitlynhparker.com

I spent my weekend mornings browsing some fall sales and landed on the Abercrombie & Fitch website – they always have the best deals! I never even shopped A&F in high school or college, but lately, they’re just killing it! Right now they’re doing a 50% sale with an extra 15% off using the code: […]
