Home Decor Inspiration via Target’s Opalhouse Collection

I am sure many of you have seen the various advertisements and articles about Target’s latest home decor collection, Opalhouse, blasted all over the internet. Needless to say, people have been anticipating the collection and with good reason as it’s quite gorgeous. Personally, I am loving the combination of bold colors, rich fabrics, natural textures, and fun prints.

Target has always been a go-to store for home decor items, but over the past couple of years or so, they have really stepped up their game. From collaborating with interior designers like Nate Berkus and bloggers such as Joy Cho (of Oh Joy!) to producing collections such as Project 62 and now Opalhouse, Target has easily become a source for all things for your home.

This past Sunday’s in-store and online release of Target’s Opalhouse collection is especially awesome for me, as I have been eyeing some items to help finish up my living room. Whoop!

Living Room Gallery Wall Inspiration

In a month or so, my living room couch will finally be here! Y’all I am beyond excited to get started on putting my living room together and truly have my apartment be complete.

One thing that I have been wanting to do is to create a gallery wall behind my couch. Having all these blank white walls in my apartment is definitely making it feel a little less homey than I like and I feel that a gallery wall will help with that.

Of course, in the beginning, I got a little too analytical about it and tried thinking up of a “theme”. After browsing Pinterest, though, I decided that I rather have a quirky gallery wall than one that feels a little too put together.

Here’s to livening my place up a bit!

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!

Home is where the heart is…

Okay, I admit it. I’m barely a twenty-something and I love HGTV. The idea of making the place where you call home comfy and gorgeous just sounds like a grand idea. I even read the HGTV magazine more than I read Vogue or Glamour (..and that’s saying something).

However, no matter how many times I read the magazine or watch Color Splash, I can never sum up the energy to do something with my tiny bit of space I call home. It’s also hard to do anything about my space when it’s so tiny versus the homes you see them makeover on tv. So I have taken to the internet to see what others have accomplished with their smaller spaces–inspiration time!!

What an adorable and quirky kitchen!!

The thought of a navy tufted sofa (like this one in Glitter Guide’s Emily Henderson feature) makes me giddy–no lie.

Nikki Rappaport’s studio (as featured on The EveryGirl) is the perfect mix of chic and bright and comfy.

So badly do I wish to style my next apartment here in Oregon so I can have this place feel even more like home. Does anybody have any quick (and easy) styling tricks that they’ve tried? Would love to hear them!

As always, have a wonderful day!
