So in the spirit of the season I’ve done a little update to my living room to bring me out of winter.

Brighter colors and more light!

Coffee Table Books

My favorite piece of functional and fashionable décor, the coffee table book! They come in all different sizes, colors, and subjects.

You can style coffee table books a number of ways: you can stack them, prop them up, stagger them, heck they don’t even have to go on your coffee table.

I think the reason I love them so much is because you can get coffee table books in subjects you like! They not only look good as décor but you can read them as well!

I have coffee table books on travel, fashion, makeup, designers, etc. I’ve found them in a couple of different places as well. Some I ordered from Amazon but I found lot of them at a local used book store! Prices vary but I think coffee table books are timeless and chic!

 

Glam Up Your Bathroom 3 Ways

Say it with me no ugly bathrooms! Often times our bathrooms are not thought of as a room to decorate or a room that can be fashionable and functional. Outside of coordinating towels and a cute shower curtain what are other steps you can take to give your bathroom a little more flair? I’m glad you asked! Here are three very simple ways to class up your powder room.

  1. Presentation is everything! Take certain bathroom items out of their packaging like Q-tips, cotton rounds/balls, soap, etc. and place them in jars, decorative containers, trays, etc.PhotoGrid_1518880036716
  2. Show off your fragrances. Not only it is pleasing to the eye but it’s easy to see what fragrance you want to use that day!PhotoGrid_1518879942314
  3. Roll your towels. It’s stylish and fun! Find a big basket or stack them on top of each other. Atypical ways to show off and store your towels definitely adds a little something to your bathroom. PhotoGrid_1518879700004

Bonus tip: Clear your vanity off. The less clutter on your counter top the more aesthetically pleasing and the cleaner the counter top stays.

Are you running off to glam up your bathroom?

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Sofa Style

Often times the biggest piece in your living room is the sofa and it draws the most attention in the room as well. So make it look good! I styled my sofa a couple of different ways so you can get a feel for all the different looks you can do with your own sofa.

What you will need:

pillows and blankets

First up: Monochromatic

My sofa is gray so I incorporated silvers, grays, and gray toned beige.

Next up: Oversized Pillows

Make your sofa super comfy with oversized pillows!

Lastly: Color and Texture

With a neutral sofa I try to have fun with color and adding texture to anything is my jam! I added fun colors and shapes with the pillows and some texture through the patterns and fur blanket.

Last thoughts:

Remember your space is what you make it! Whether you want cozy, inviting, fun, happy, or relaxing you can achieve any look with a few pieces! Don’t be afraid to have fun and take some risks with color and patterns!

Live it. Love it. Style it.
