Something about navy and white together gives off such a crisp vibe, particularly splashed with details of brass and naturally woven materials. Not only is the wall color perfect in this beautiful bedroom, but I love how everything is uniquely thrown together!
With more sunny days and opportunities to open the windows and let the breeze come in, there are a few great ways to refresh your home and prep it for the new season. I love to make a few minor tweaks that make me remember that we’re entering into a new time of year; it just makes me feel like I’m shedding winter – my least favorite season – from my home. See my favorite ways to do it below.
There’s nothing that’s quite as nice as making someone’s day. I’ve really noticed recently how much I enjoy hearing that I did a good job on a work project, or simply that I’m appreciated when I go out of my way to do something for someone else. In the spirit of the month of giving thanks, I’d like to pass that along a bit more often.
November is a lovely month where the holidays are just ahead. You don’t want to jump the gun and put out your Christmas tree just yet, but you want things to feel a bit more festive as holiday shopping begins and Thanksgiving is in sight.
The very first thing anyone (yourself included) sees when they come into your home is the entry. No matter the size of it, a grand entryway with a sweeping staircase or an extra bit of wall you’ve managed to make feel welcoming in your apartment, you want to really think about what goes in the space.
Adding pieces here and there is often the best way to design your home – it’s more cost effective than buying all at once, and allows you to see the holes in your decor rather than trying to envision it all at once.
When I first thought about what type of rug I’d want for our living room, my mind instantly went to the basic white-and-gray Moroccan style (similarly to this, this or this). But the more I got to thinking, the more I realized we have so much white furniture and white walls, which is a nice clean slate for something a bit more exciting.
Where did the time go? It feels that August is already slipping through my fingers, with busy weekends and weeks that just fly by. The end of summer marks a busy time both personally and professionally, and I can’t believe it’s already back-to-school season!
I’ve been on a bit of a decorating spree with our apartment. I’ve gotten us some new towels for the bathroom, and finally made a decision on lamps for our bedside tables. Those were both a bit of a necessity, but there’s nothing like getting a little something unnecessary that’s just fun to decorate with.
Summer days are perfect for picnics. Finding the perfect shady spot to sit and enjoy a gorgeous sunny afternoon is what weekends are made for!
