Growing up, some of my fondest memories revolve around the family room of my parents’ house. In my toddler stages, I remember being chased around and around the coffee table. It only took me a year to realize that running in between and through the legs of the table and not around was what it took to win the game of cat and mouse. Fast forward several years later (think of a 7 year old me), and I was the one chasing my younger brother around the table.
Fast forward again a couple more years, and I’m using the coffee table as a support to prop up a meter stick, which was then used as framework for a bedsheet tent. My brother and I would spend hours crawling around in between the tunnels made out of makeshift bedsheets draped over top of a meter stick in between the couch and the coffee table.
Which is why I’m so happy to be partnering with Artemano to share the Artemano Family Moments. Beyond the rustic nature of Artemano’s decor, I love their brand mentality of creating closeness, connection, and community. Looking back on my past, the furniture in my house played a large role in creating the bond of family. This collection of moments really iterates just how integral furniture is to our home lives, and how wonderful memories are created with this pieces, yet the furniture is never given much credit.
For those of you who are currently in the process of making over your home, or simply looking for some additional pieces of furniture to update your decor, Artemano is offering a $10,000 makeover contest – and entering is ridiculously easy. To enter, all you have to do is:

And as a little bonus for me (because I’m always curious), I’d love to hear how furniture impacted your life and family growing up. What are some of your fondest moments in your house? Best of luck!
