There’s nothing better than coming home to a space you love. I truly believe that your home should be a warm expression of yourself and your family. Over the years, I’ve worked hard to create a home that feels like us: warm, inviting, and stylish, too! Our house is a place to gather, to connect, and make both big and small memories alike.

That’s why I’m always looking for key pieces that continue that vibe we’re going for. While most of our house is set with foundational pieces, I love swapping out smaller items to keep the look fresh and beautiful.

Refreshing the Kitchen

Our kitchen is the heart of our home. It’s where we gather, cook, do homework, have meetings—everything! I love having a big, spacious kitchen that’s bright and welcoming. For the warmer months, I transitioned in a few pieces that capture the light, airy, and effortless feel of the summer—including these Robin Wishbone Counter Stools from Arhaus. Plus, they’re upholstered in Crypton fabric, easy-to-clean fabric that’s engineered with stain, odor, and moisture-resistant technology in every fiber.

New Stools That Fit Right In

We’ve really defined our style over the years to capture this coastal, modern farmhouse aesthetic. These counter stools fit right into that theme, especially with the natural wood stain. I love the unique curves and shapes of these stools—they feel timeless yet completely different from any other stools I’ve seen. I love that the back hugs you and gives you that extra support when you sit in them. What can I say—Arhaus always knocks it out of the park with pieces that fit seamlessly into our space.

Function for Our Family

But above all, these stools just fit our family. We’re always gathering around the kitchen, so I wanted to be sure to have stools that felt comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. We’re so fortunate to have a gorgeous, wide island, and they are the perfect addition for us to meet around the counter. Whether it’s homework, dinner, or a family game night, our new wishbone stools are the key to a happy Schaffer family.
