Recent Purchases I Am Loving

Hello friends!

I've added a few decorative touches to my home that I wanted to share with you all.  They are subtle touches but I believe they have truly made a difference in the look and feel of my home.  I am a believer that sometimes it's the small things that make the biggest difference.

Onto the first piece and the one I am most excited about.  This beautiful side table was spotted at HomeGoods for $59.00.  The design immediately caught my eye because it's so different from what I already own, yet I believe the table has added the perfect touch to our master room for its compact size and design.









I am still looking for the right accessories but I am loving the look so far.


The next item I picked up while on a lunch date with my husband.  Now, by lunch date I mean lunch at Whole Foods after a good workout session at the gym, haha.  We both love Whole Foods and it so happens that a Pottery Barn store is just walking distance from it.  I purchased these two pillow covers after having them on my wish list for what seemed like forever.  I just adore their simplicity.


I do, however, need to invest in better inserts because I am currently using my Target pillows and they don't have the slouchy/relaxed look to them.  They look a little too structured and that takes away from the comfort look I am going for.  Do you agree?


If you visit my Instagram page you may have already seen these pillows from Home Goods.  I was so excited when I spotted them in the store that I rushed to the cash register, no hesitation whatsoever. I brought them home and quickly replaced my Target pillows with these (no offense to my beloved Target).  These happen to be my husband's favorite because they are so unbelievably comfortable.



These four pillows have added a nice touch to our living room, so much better than our Target pair.


Next in line is this bathroom rug from World Market.  We used to have a Bed Bath and Beyond padded brown rug that we purchased when we first moved in to our home a little over 3 years ago.  This purchase was made on a whim and before I had an idea as to how I wanted to decorate our home.  It was so sad looking that even my husband mentioned it once or twice (or three times but who's counting).  He was so pleased when he walked in and saw this new rug.   This new purchase quickly got the seal of approval from him.  :)



Last but certainly not least I wanted to share this beautiful flower arrangement from none other than Home Goods (big surprise there, huh?).  I love it!  It adds such a beautiful pop of color to our bedroom.  Peonies being my favorite flower, it came as no surprise to my husband when I walked in with this baby in my hands.  Although, I must say, I think I may have reached my flower arrangement quota, haha.  Has that ever happened to you?  Maybe it's just me but I looked around our home and panicked a little.  I don't want to be know as the lady with too many flower arrangements.  Plus, I've been really trying to simplify (declutter and organize) our home and buying another would completely defeat the purpose.





I appreciate the look of a clean and well organized home, so I am striving to keep mine as organized as possible.  I feel it makes life a little less stressful.  I am nowhere near complete but I am truly enjoying the process of purging and giving, it's kind of a stress reliever for me.  Have you completed any organizing projects lately? 

Thank you so much for reading!  I hope you are enjoying your week. :)

Until next time,
Karina
