Looking Back on 2017

From my first ever solo trip to Seattle (a place I’ve never been to, no less!) to trying to expand and play with my personal style to Hurricane Harvey to the Astros winning the World Series–this year has been a crazy one!

Below are some of my favorite moments and photos from this past year. So thanks to everyone who I got to spend this crazy year, and thank you to Joybird and many other retailers for giving me all the design inspiration that I need for my new place.

Cheers to a new year!

The decor for this Airbnb (House on 5th) is ah-ma-zing!

I love love love the mixture of rustic and contemporary styles, as well as the neutral color palette that the homeowners decided to go with. Also, it boasts plenty of room and is walking distance to lots of things in Edmond (an Oklahoma City suburb) and is a short drive away to downtown Oklahoma City.

This Airbnb comes highly recommended, so be sure to check it out whenever you’re in the area!

Wednesday Want: Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Spice Candle

williams-sonoma-pumpkin-spice-candle

A few weeks back when I was at Williams-Sonoma, I came upon this deliciously yummy smelling candle while at the check out counter.

I’ve honestly been quite good lately and have yet to purchase this candle until it truly is fall *pats myself on the back*. However, come September 22nd, I may not be accountable for my actions when it comes all things pumpkin, including this candle.

Home Envy: Colorful Kitchens

Have any of y’all noticed that when you look for a new place to live, you can really see housing trends over the years as you go from one place to another?

For some reason, I’ve never been the biggest fan of light wood grain cabinets or even white cabinets as both just seemed kind of “country” to me. I’ve always loved the idea of a darker shade or even a colored cabinet and lucky for me they are trending right now. I also love quartz cabinets but man those are hard to find with my budget! (A girl can dream….)

What do you automatically think of when you envision your dream kitchen? As said previously, I think of quartz cabinets, colored cabinets, lots of counter space, and a double oven to fit my cooking needs.

Wednesday Want: Obvious State’s Bloom Collection

 

Obvious State, a New York City-based design studio cofounded by Evan and Nichole Robertson, combines gorgeous patterns with “provocative language and literature”.

Their most recent collection, the Bloom collection, combines quotes from 6 Romantic Period poets (Blake, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Coleridge, and Wordsworth) with beautiful florals. It currently consists of: 8 totes, 2 mugs, a set of bookmarks, 8 prints, and 8 cards.

I personally just ordered the “Harmony” Mug  and the Bloom Bookmark Set (both pictured), and I am happy to say that the price tag of these items are just as wonderful as the items themselves.

Home Envy: A Touch of Southwestern Flair

I don’t know if it’s due to having grown up in Texas or having visited my family in New Mexico over the years, but there’s always been something so inviting and cozy about a place that has some southwestern flair.

Right now I’m currently trying to find a place in the Houston area that sells reasonably priced serapes. I want to make some throw pillow covers for the couch out of the material, similar to what Brooklyn Decker did when she re-upholstered her chairs, as I think it’d add a nice punch of color to the space.

Have a good weekend y’all and stay dry!

Happy Spring Equinox!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

I’m so excited that it’s finally spring!

This morning I had to do start Spring off on the right foot, so I went to Trader Joe’s and picking up a small bouquet. Fresh flowers are just about a must have for me when it’s spring, and I love the prices that Trader Joe’s has, plus the fact that I can grab a bouquet along with a few needed grocery items.

How are y’all celebrating the new season?
