I have gone back and forth with having a desk in our apartment a few times. We originally had one in the window, then the bedroom and then got rid of it completely. For a while I loved not having a workspace in the living room as it felt more open and looked a bit […]

I am on a mission to share a new playlist with you all every month and am excited about my latest for February. I have also made it easier to find all of my previous playlists with the playlist tab on the mobile dropdown menu and on the homepage of the blog. I love sharing […]

Coffee table books have quickly become one of the most asked about aspects of our living room. Presumably because I have so many and white built in shelves that display them well, but more and more I get asked about my favorite books. Not necessarily to read, but my favorite books to style with. Understandably […]

I have an affinity for decorative accents, but by far one of my favorites is throw pillows. I get asked about creating pillow combinations a lot and specifically finding pillows that aren’t so expensive. I will say I veer towards more investment pillow covers because there is a noticeable difference in overall style and quality. […]

Pretty ceramics have quickly become one of my favorite home accessories. Whether they are vintage or new, the texture of a beautiful planter or bowl can add so much to a room. I have slowly been starting a collection from travels and whenever I stumble across something at stores like Elsie Green. I have also […]

Over the last few years I have really focused on the art of simplifying. My apartment, my wardrobe, my day to day schedule. I realized that the more stuff I am surrounded by the more the clutter seeps into every aspect of my life. I prefer a simple approach when its comes to my wardrobe […]

I have gotten a couple requests to share some of my favorite candles that aren’t as pricy as some options I have around our apartment. I live for a good candle, but that doesn’t mean they always have to be so expensive. A lot of brands are coming out with high quality scents that may […]

When I asked all of you what you wanted to see more of on the blog this year I got an overwhelming response for more decor posts in general, but specifically to break down rooms. I want to offer more design boards and show you how I approach layering a space whether it is your […]

There are some retail stores that just continue to inspire me in a world of products that can look very similar. I have loved CB2 for so long and am always impressed by their fresh designs at affordable price points. They are one of my go to spots for some unique accessories and accent furniture […]

My goals for this year are a bit all over the place, but one of them is to be a lot more intentional about purchases and finally organize spaces that have needed work for a while. I am very clean by nature, but because we have minimal storage in our apartment our kitchen always seems […]
