If you follow us on Instagram (and you should!), you're privy to the hints we've been dropping about our new Curbly Headquarters in Minneapolis (the word 'headquarters' sounds so commanding; I'm sticking with it).

So, we found a little space a few blocks from our house and set out to make it our own. It has been an adventure and we've been going full tilt for the last six weeks. The space is complete and we're excited to share it with you - come have a look!

But what if you could up the ante with a custom epoxy tabletop? Here's how to do it -- the easy way! Continue Reading
We talk a lot about color here in the Curbly neighborhood, which led me to wonder, is there such a thing as too much color?? Then I started looking for evidence, collecting images of rooms that seem to be on the tipping point. I'll let you decide onto which side they fall....color fail or color fabulous.
