How special is celebrating someone you love – ALL DAY long. I love Valentine’s Day for this reason. Be it yourself, your partner, your children, pets, friends or siblings – they deserve celebration. A quick round up of some great gift ideas I’m loving this year. For everyone’s budget + everyone on your list.
January at our house is all about the refresh. After I get everything winter put away I love a good de-clutter of all my spaces. This year I tackled our kitchen – tossing an entire garbage bag full of junk and donating two totes worth of dishes and kitchen tools we just don’t use or had duplicates of. I really want everything to feel bright + fresh – something about starting the new year that way. I hadn’t done this since we got married friends – THIRTEEN years ago! Who’s with me?
I’ve found a few things worth sharing so far for our homes in 2020 to really bring that feeling in – along with shopping my own home and moving things around, it’s helped refresh our space so much! I wanted to share a few favorite items with you, these are giving me so much inspiration – AND wanted to remind you too, it’s not the “things” in our homes. I never want you to feel pressured to buy anything else. However, I do love sharing products that I love + even if they are things you can reference back to when you end up needing them, I hope you’ll do so.
For my kitchen refresh I ended up needing a few new tools – here’s the first set I purchased, we are loving them so far – they seem to be great quality!
And these basic tools to mix and match with my wooden spoons & spatulas.
And in keeping things cozy, I picked up this throw for our entry way basket in the living room. I love the pom pom’s and it’s extra soft + plush.
A few things giving me all the inspiration right now. GAH. Can we design someone’s space around these items together?
I’ve been wanting to add a lamp to my entry way table – you just can’t have enough of that layered lighting. I ** think this is the ONE. But I haven’t decided for sure yet. All the heart eyes regardless.
I hope you’ve all had the BEST month. I’m sharing details over on IG for February’s giveaway – make sure your following over there too. Happy Friday! xoxo.
I remember when I bought my first piece of art for my home – I felt like a real adult! Choosing art can be tricky – however I believe that it should speak to you, it should be something that you see and think “I absolutely need this in my life”. Art can be expensive – however it doesn’t have to be, and if it is – it’s an investment that is worth making. While I’m no curator – I wanted to share a few inexpensive pieces, all under $300 that I love, maybe something to get you started – or to add to your existing collection. Art truly makes a house HOME.
Some of my favorite places to shop – West Elm, Pottery Barn & Studio McGee.
