I'm always rearranging and adding pieces to my home. It truly is a permanent work in progress--which doesn't bother me one single bit. With such affordable and chic options out there, what's a girl to do? Or should I say, what's a hostess to do? Decorate, duh.

A few tips for updating:
- Create a gallery wall. They are so easy to put together and instantly transform a room. Trust me, I've experienced this. The print above from Furbish Studio will go fabulously on any wall. I'm stocking up on these cute prints with such true sayings! 

- Get a pretty standing tray. There are so many ways to style these! I need to do a post on this (note to self). From bar carts to side tables, trays make a chic statement. How cute is this little guy from C. Wonder?

- Decorate your shelves with fun, quirky accents. And if you don't own shelves, get on that! Most of mine are from Ikea and cost next to nothing. No excuses, people.

- Change up any room with fabulous new pillows. Again, there are so so so many options out there. I suggest holding out for the web. I'm a pillow hoarder and I have to say, the best options come from the internet. So resist that urge of instant gratification for something that isn't near as cool! (I'm preaching to myself, too. It's a problem)


  1. Gotta love side tables and coffee books :) xo

  2. Currently updating my house now and had to hire a decorator because i was at a loss. It's amazing how they only pulled in a few new pieces and how they are instantly transforming my home. Love the gold piggy!

  4. These are such basic yet helpful tips for revamping your space! I love decorating with books. I just finished my PhD and had tons of ugly books on my shelves, so now I'm ready to add beautiful books full of photos!

  5. I love a good gallery wall! I'm wanting to transition from roommates and would like to get my own place in the next year and that's the first thing I would love to do when I can finally decorate however I want! These are great tips.

  6. Okay I am in love with those pillows. I may need to get those immediately. Thank you for sharing!
