5 New & Favourite Home Decor Purchases.
Wednesday, 8 April 2015 Wednesday, April 08, 2015
The last few weeks have been insane!! As you know from my last blog post, my boyfriend and I just recently moved! We are so unbelievably happy in the new place - it is a huge upgrade for us! Our lifestyle here is going to be much different than in the last place. This apartment really is our first adult home. Every other place I have lived in - besides my parents' place - has been temporary, student housing. We are both moving in to a new phase of life - finishing law school, working full time, getting called to the bar - it will all happen here in this apartment.
Needless to say, I have been obsessed with making this apartment a home. I have been buying new furniture (while staying on a budget - a blog post/YT video about that will be up later this week) and really discovering what my style is. I realize now that I LOVE mid-century modern. The clean lines and minimal design, mixed with fun pops of colour and texture is right up my alley. I also have a small obsession with finding vintage pieces and revamping them to modern day. This is especially so with anything from the 1960's and 1970's. I will be starting a new series on this blog called 'From Drab to Fab' featuring the projects I have been working on! That will also start this week.
For my first post back, though, I wanted to start with a few of my favourite new purchases for my home. I will be doing a huge 'Home Decor Haul' video for my YouTube channel which should go up in the next week or so. But for now I thought I would highlight my absolute favourites.
1. Indigo Daydream Floral Pillow
2. Home Sense Mirrored Tray (similar here; if you want a square one that is similar, this one is beautiful)
3. Ikea Ravenea Majesty Palm
4. Home Sense Blue Floral Accent Chair (I also love this Blue Wayfair Accent Chair) **this one was actually purchased by my mum ... best house warming gift EVER!
5. West Elm Gold Vase (similar here)
** As a bonus, the candle that I have been OBSESSED with since moving (it has actually been a favourite of mine for a few years now, but it is only sold in Spring and Summer) is the Bath & Body Works Tiki Beach candle. It smells like you are on a tropical vacation AND is on sale now for only $12!!
Thanks for sticking with me over the past few months. I know I haven't been posting much, but moving is hard!! Haha. You forget how much work it is until you do it again. Now that I am pretty much settled in, I am THRILLED to be back to filming and blogging regularly.
