Accessory addicted

There’s nothing I love more than accessories for the home. I’m slightly addicted. In fact we actually have a bank account specifically for this habit of mine.

I was recently at TJ MAXX Homegoods looking for a few things for the nursery. I was searching for a table side lamp (Which I ended up getting at Target), picture frames for her gallery wall & a hamper.

While I didn’t end up finding much for the nursery, I did score a really well made hamper for $50, some Vera Wang sheets & a $22 sunburst mirror!

The mirror had been marked down from $60 to $35 to $25 all because it had a slight crack in the bottom right corner. At the register I asked for 10% off making it $22

Such a steal! I decided to hang it over our couch and accent it with some candles. I was over those photos that were up there, so I added them to the gallery love wall. So much better!

IMG_0134Those gold candle holders are just small mason jars I had around the house. I used glitter glue & some gold glitter for some added sparkle.IMG_0140

For Christmas I got these gold Moroccan poufs for the living room & white lacquered tray from West Elm

The poufs are from Overstock. At first I was a little concerned that they were too gold, but I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on them. It took a couple weeks to get used to them. These are amazing if you’re short on space, because they can provide extra seating if you have guests over. My favorite part is that they fit perfectly under the waterfall table.

What do you think? IMG_0110We are expecting our maternity photos anytime now.. so anxious to see them! Look for those in next week’s posts. Also I’ll be sharing a no-sew crib skirt. It was so easy!! I’m so glad we made our own.

Modern nursery rugs

In my long search for the perfect nursery rug, I found so many cute ones that I loved!

Thought I’d share some with you, in case you are having as much trouble as I did finding that perf rug for your nursery.

I was basically obsessed with the Madeline Weinrib Brooke Rug in hot pink, but then found out it was $1100 for 5×8, so that was definitely out of the question. So sad! If it’s in your budget though, go for it. It’s stunning, and if you hire the carpet cleaning las vegas company you will never have problems with odors or anything!! They have a lot of different colors too.

This gold zebra rug from Overstock is gorg!! I know it’s not the typical nursery looking rug, but that’s what I like about it. It’s so different & glamorous. At $486 it’s not bad, but still more than I really wanted to spend.

The West Elm Souk rug was also one of my favorites

The Surya Archive Rug in coral is gorgeous too

I thought it would compete too much with the black & white striped wall though

This hand tufted wool black & white chevron is gorgeous too

Another chevron from Land of Nod

I also found that Urban Outfitters has a ton of cute rugs that would be perfect for boys too. They are really affordable.

Also loved this black & white geometric rug I found on Ebay

We ultimately decided on the Pottery Barn Kids chevron rug in pink, which I am really happy with. I like the fact that it’s cotton & at $250, pretty inexpensive. So if it gets ruined by baby girl, it won’t be too much of a disappointment!

Originally I thought I would have to return it thinking there would so too much going on in with the black & white striped wall and everything, but it looks amazing! Very girly, yet sophisticated & modern just how mommy wanted it 🙂 Which is your favorite?

We hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

OlioBoard Obsessed

I recently came across the most amazing website known to man.. or should I say women. It’s called OlioBoard and I am beyond obsessed. I spent approx 3 hours playing around with the site & designing my ideal home office!

Here’s the gist of how it works; You create your own digital mood/inspiration boards on their site & save them to your profile. A lot of interior designers use this site + regular people who want to design their own space.

 It’s free to join. They do have a pro version that enables you to choose wall colors, add text & use the budget feature, which is $8.99 a month.

All the images you select on the site are fully available for purchase and they list the product’s specifications & prices!! Amazing! You can even upload your own inspiration photos from your computer or photos of your current furniture.

I put this board together for my ideal home office. What do you think?

It really helps you envision the room you are trying to create.. instead of buying items at stores only to find out that they don’t match your current decor – talk about a major time saver.
