Way back in 2019 after we purchased our living room sofa, I published a roundup of similar linen and slipcovered options, all under $2k.

The answer is a resounding YES—it still looks new after two kids, a cat, and countless gatherings.

Christmas has come early because today I’m revealing our last and FINAL makeover at the Hacienda Hideaway! This evolution begins way back in 2021, when we walled off a corner of the main living area to create a fourth bedroom: We were confined by two doorways and couldn’t make the room any larger, but we were determined to make this footprint work to sleep four guests. After much brainstorming, we landed on a custom double twin bunk bed arrangement, and Lucas got to work building. I shared a reel + stories on my Instagram documenting the build, which was completed back in October. DIY beam ..read more
