Last Christmas, we were in Target, and I overheard an older couple looking at some plaid Christmas sheets saying, “These would be perfect in the guest room!” I cry-laughed later to Chris telling him the story because Christmas sheets?! For the guest room!? Are we ever going to get to a point where I have nothing left to buy but Christmas sheets for the guest room!? Since moving here, we have been so focused on the big things and big purchases–floors, fence, an area rug that actually fits, lighting, baseboards (for crying out loud!!) that spending money on the little things, something as simple as a throw blanket or new candles makes me feel guilty when there are so many large purchases. Do you ever feel that way? #Firstworldproblems.
Forever and a day ago, I posted about 8 things I’d love to add to your living room. That was over two years ago! The point was, and is, that sometimes you just need some key accessories–or accessories at all–to totally change the vibe of a space. Truthfully, we need to accessorize the living room bad style. I haven’t purchased new pillows for our couches for years. Literally, years. Last night, I told Chris that our house is lacking in the comfort-factor. I think it is due to that lack of lamps and good lighting in general, but also textures. Accessories! So, I’ve compiled a few Fall MVP accessories that I’m dying to add to our living room, and maybe yours, too.
Brass Lamp / Wool Blanket (a steal!) / Camel Knitted Pillow / Gray Knitted Pillow / Rope Basket / Tissue box (be still my heart) / Brass Planter / Metal Hoop Stand / Bison Print! / Pumpkin Chai Candle
I’m making a new goal to add some little things to our home this season (don’t worry, the baseboards are coming too!) to help the home-y factor. Are accessories a priority in your spaces, or do you struggle like me?
Ps. There are 9 more Fall-ish accessories I gathered for my Houzz article this month right here. You’ll love ’em.
