25 Chic Home Decor Options

[credit]

Hey there! It was so cool to see how excited y’all were about me putting together a home decor post. It’s been really fun perusing all the different home decor retailers trying to find the best pieces for my living room, office, and small spare room. Each one has SO many products, and it takes so long to dig through each ones inventory! It almost feels like I’m on a treasure hunt because when I find a piece that is exactly what I’m looking for … I feel like I struck gold or something! Ha! I am looking for large furniture pieces, like a couch, loveseat, chairs, TV stand, coffee table, desk, book shelf with drawers for files, and rugs – so I incorporated small pieces of decor in the options above but mostly stuck to furniture pieces that are all styles that I personally love. Obviously, you have to choose an avenue when it comes to home decor, so I incorporated silver AND gold mirrored furniture, white with gold hardware, gold with glass, black with gold hardware, etc just to give y’all some inspiration to run with. I want my apartment to maintain a consistent theme throughout, and I can’t wait for it all to come together! The hardest thing for me to choose has been the couch and coffee table. For whatever reason, I just am so scared to just decide and commit to one! I know what chairs I want in my living room and I already got a TV stand … you would think it’d be easy to go from there.

I get my first piece of furniture tomorrow, which will allow me to start decluttering one area of my home. It’ll where my bar car and small gallery wall used to be. It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks. I need to get the carpets cleaned. I need to get the area that is my office now decluttered and cleaned out by next Friday. I need to get my room moved over to Kristan’s room by then, too. I’m also waiting on a new rug to come for my room so my bedroom move can’t happen until then. So many logistical things that you need to plan for, you know? I’ll be doing my best to have some blog posts up next week but probably not as many as I usually do. As I mentioned on Monday, I am focusing on taking care of myself this year in addition to getting organized so I am meeting with a trainer today. I have no idea where that will be placed in my schedule and how it will affect things but I am just going to get what I can done but not overdo it. If I try and overdo it then I’ll never get organized and I’ll never do what I need to do to better myself, you know? Too many times in the past I have just hustled way too hard just to get content up everyday and it’s just not always realistic. 

I have a lot of travel content I need to catch up on and share with y’all, so I’m hoping to share one of last year’s trips with you next week! Do y’all want Amsterdam or Tulum first? Over the weekend, I’m also going to get that survey put together for y’all to fill out. I’m really interested in hearing what you want to see more of and less of from me! I’m excited to continue to share more home decor content as I individualize my apartment and get it organized the way it needs to be! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope y’all have a great day! Appreciate you! xo.

    I don’t typically find home decor posts helpful, but yours was!!! Loved how you added commentary on each piece. I’m such a home decor beginner, and just realized why my home decor has always been just blah – there is no consistency throughout my home decor!!! (and your post made me realize that!) It’ll be something I will think about when I revamp my place this year!! Keep up the FABULOUS content!!!

    I love all of this! So chic. I was hoping you would do a post on clothing pieces that can be worn both casually and in a work setting. For those mid-twenty something’s that are willing to spend a little more for quality pieces, but need them to be versatile to justify buying. I think a post like that would be awesome.

      Hey Christy! That’s a great idea! I did do that recently in an actual outfit post – the ‘Sleek Black + Gray Look With Nordstrom’. The only thing that couldn’t be worn to work is the distressed denim jeans. The trouble, sometimes, with just giving you product options for work is that girls then want me to style it so they have ideas on how to wear the items. BUT – I will do my best to do a little of both from time to time ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the suggestion!
