Home Updates for Less


I have this thing where as soon as I get back from a trip, I start revamping home decor again. It's like I can only focus on planning for a trip, or home updates. If I'm not planning a trip, I'm redecorating a room. If I'm not redecorating a room, I'm probably planning a trip.

Anyway, the second we returned from Las Vegas and the dust had settled from the holidays, I went immediately into decor mode. I'm currently finishing our "formal" living room, and my home office. The problem with both of these rooms - and why they're taking so long - is that they are rather large, which presents its own little problems. (So much wall space to fill, bookshelves to accessorize, pretty things to arrange. It seems to be never ending.)

Above are some items I'm loving.

1. I have NO IDEA why, but a few months ago I legit almost bought those Neiman Marcus $365 peonies. What? Insane. But supposedly they look super real and I am obsessed with peonies and wish I had them in arrangements year-round. (Peonies were all over our wedding - even in my bouquet.) When I saw this Target look-a-like for $20 I immediately hit purchase. (It actually arrives today or tomorrow!)
2. I've been debating the Prada Marfa sign since the days of Gossip Girl just like everyone else.  My office is black and white themed (no surprise there), so I'm feeling like I need to pull the trigger on this baby finally! In the search for it, I found several DIY tutorials though. Super tempting. Since this is going in a very visible place in my office I think I am going to order it, but if it was a guest bedroom? DIY. Oh, and art.com is doing 15% off right now, (which ends tomorrow) but I think they are always doing some sort of discount it seems.
3.  Of course I happen to be looking for a new desk chair, not a desk. But I ran across these and had to share. The left one is Jonathan Adler = stunning. For $2299 though... yikes. Knock the first digit off though and you can get a Pottery Barn twin for $299, since it is now on sale, and the delivery surcharge has even been waived. Score!

Do you have any home decor projects going on? Know anywhere I can find a fantastic desk chair or more amazing artwork? Do share. Happy Tuesday! xo

Some other home goodies I've been eyeing below. (I just ordered that Target bench below - 2 actually!)
(Once the fashion week frenzy ensues in February I'm certain I'll be totally uninterested in decorating once again. And so it continues...)
