Oh Target

You know how, when you're shopping, and you see something you love but don't really need? That's what happens to me a lot. Then you get home and you keep thinking that you should have bought it. And you're still thinking about it a week later (yes, a week).

These two things were even in my cart and they were on sale last week, but I didn't get them...yet.

Both items are a traditional classic, bound to stay in style. I would put the rug in my kitchen (yes, it's a doormat - but it has a nice grippy backing). The pillow would be perfect for my living room.

I think I'll be at Target very soon.

Chairish Color

Why do we tend to play it safe when it comes to color and furniture? It seems like just about every house has a beige or brown sofa.

What if we had just one colorful, unique piece in our home?

Check out that chair. It's leather and it has nailheads (two of my favorite things)! Plus, the chair is hand-painted. A lot of love went into this piece.

Recently I was contacted by Holly. She led me to discover Chairish, an online marketplace with beautiful vintage pieces. I created a styleboard featuring this Hand Painted Leather Chair as the star of the show.

Other pieces that give the chair some company:
1. Framed Botanical Prints
2. Faux Cowhide Rug
3. Vintage Lacquered Round Pedestal Side Table
4. Blue Porcelain Gourd Lamp

The paint color is Benjamin Moore Hale Navy.

Cherishing (or Chairish-ing) color is something all of us should embrace. During the winter months, we tend to wear more blacks, browns, and grays. A pop of color can lift your mood. I think the same applies to your home.

Do you have the courage to breakaway from the beige furniture and embrace something more colorful?

Just for fun, head on over to Chairish. shop for a piece that you want in your home, and don't forget to tell me in the comments what you found!

*Although I was contacted by Chairish to create a styleboard, I was not compensated for this post.

2 Things

Where I live, winter is starting to go into full swing. With winter comes the winter blues, cabin fever, and a little boredom.
Here are two things that will give you an instant pick-me-up:

1. "Freestyle" Lady Antebellum. Blast the volume and dance away.

2. Fixer Upper. Chip and Joanna Gaines are such cute couple. Chip's sense of humor and Joanna's reactions will make you laugh. It's on HGTV Tuesdays at 9pm/8c. The renovations they do are amazing, it makes me want to buy a fixer upper.
