Home Decor Inspiration

I’m nesting pretty bad these days! Since I’ll be in my new place in just a few short weeks I can’t stop looking at stylish home décor and pinning all my ideas! I’m trying to not too shop too much right now, since I still need to move and get accurate measurements of each space, so for now I’m just planning carefully and organizing my shopping lists. There are a few décor trends I’ve been really getting into so definitely will be working into new place after the move. Keep reading to see 3 of my top home décor trends that I’ll be incorporating into the new place!

Spring Decorating Trends

 

Luxe Bathroom Accessories

Self-care is everything these days, so I want to make sure I create a spa like experience at home. There are a few easy updates you can make to get that ambiance, even in a rental! I’m definitely going to be switching out the standard showerheads for a waterfall attachment and adding some removeable wallpaper in a glam print or color. I can’t go as feminine as I would like to because gotta keep the boy in mind, but I definitely want to add lots of soft textures with plush towels and a shaggy bathmat and vanity style lighting to glam it up! 

 

Statement Lighting to Complete the Room 

Lighting is an essential and I love going bold with floor and table lamps. Hudson Valley Lighting sent me the stunning Hurley lamp which I can’t wait to set up in my new living room. It features a luxe gold base and off-white silk shade that is timeless, classic, and perfectly glam! Considering the price tag it is definitely an investment piece, but one that will last for years and look stylish in your current home and any future one! Hudson Valley Lighting also operates the Mitzi brand, which is just as stylish and way more affordable. 

 

If your apartment has pre-installed overhead lighting, check with your management if you can swap out the fixtures for something more stylish. As long as you store the original fixture safely and can replace it when you move out, you may be able to make the upgrade. If not think about changing the light bulbs to something softer and more serene. 

 

Swing Chairs for a Bohemian Vibe

I’m not super boho with my taste, but I like having just a hint of it. I’ve been really into swing chairs, especially since installing a hammock in an apartment isn’t exactly practical! They just instantly give you a relaxed, summer vibe, that’s just a touch hippie chic. They are pretty trendy right now, so I wouldn’t splurge on one but there are plenty of options you can find for under $100.

Spring is the perfect time to breath some new life into your home! I’m not a fan of Spring cleaning because obviously it’s the worst but it is a necessary evil! After you get your place nice and tidy it’s time to start working on the fun part – redecorating! 

I’ve been in my current apartment for almost 5 years now and have been itching to spice it up for a while. I didn’t want to go crazy because I’m moving somewhere new soon so wanted to think of fun, affordable ways to create a little more ambiance at home. Here are a few of my tips for easy, affordable redecorating for Spring! 

3 Ways to Update Your Home for Spring

Get some new greenery

There is no faster, cheaper way to bring new life into your home! I love picking up big leafy potted plants in colorful planters or chic baskets. I usually grab them at my local Home Depot since you can see and feel them in person, but there are also some really eye-catching ones I saw on Amazon! I have a few saved to purchase when I’m in my new place so I’ll let you know how that goes! Even though I’m terrible with plants and can never keep them alive long, I love keeping them around. I also pick up a cheap and cheerful bouquet on my regular Whole Foods or Trader Joes run for extra color around the place

Show your walls some love

Bare white walls in an apartment are a big no no! I’m a huge fan of paint, peel and stick wallpaper, and hanging art to add some personality to the room. I have a few pieces I’ve picked up over the years, and the latest is one my boyfriend actually picked out. Pretty cool right?

Custom Frame From Art to Frames

I wanted to give our new pet a very chic, timeless frame with a little pop of color to compliment the edgy street art vibe. Art to Frame gifted me this gorgeous Bright Gold With Compo Picture Frame 

The details are stunning and I added a double mat in classic white with a hint of hot pink to tie back to the colors in the painting. The finished piece is now an eye-catching addition to my entryway! 

 The team also included a classic black collage frame Collage Frame that can either sit on a table top of be hung. I haven’t decided where it’s going or what images to use, so let me know how you would style a frame like this!

And check out Art to Frames for easy custom framing! The quality and service are top-notch and their selection is amazing! The options are all stunning it’s hard to pick just one! Plus the site let’s you easily get a preview of how your piece will look in the frame of your choice, and add additional stylish details like classic or fancy cut mats. Save 15% on your purchase with my code, KELLY15.

Upgrade your throw pillows and blankets

Purchasing new pieces of furniture requires some degree of planning, but textiles are an easy way to transform the look of a room on a whim. If you are bored with your couch but not ready to replace it, just swap out the pillows! My favorite place to get fancy pillows at bargain prices is TJ Maxx.  They have a great selection of home textiles at a fraction of retail prices and even though I hate shopping in store it’s worth it, especially for home goods! I update my pillows and throw blankets seasonally – going for chunky knits, rich velvets, and metallics around the holidays, and fun summery prints this time of year.

Shopping-With-FreeShipping

I’d been feeling the urge to redecorate for some time, so when I was invited to collaborate with FreeShipping.com for this review, I knew I would use the opportunity to freshen up my home décor.

Living-Room-Decor

Similar to Amazon Prime, FreeShipping.com is a monthly subscription service. I’m a ride or die Prime girl, but the benefits of FreeShipping.com make membership a no-brainer. Just $12.97 a month gets you all the below perks:

  • Free shipping (obvi). I hate paying for shipping and often find myself adding useless things to cart just to hit the free shipping threshold. FreeShipping.com makes that a non-issue since you can claim a rebate for shipping charges you pay, including expedited shipping if you want to get your order faster.
  • Automatic 10% cash back (sometimes 20%!). Get 10% cash back on every purchase from over 1,000 retailers, including Macy’s, Kohl’s Sephora, Target, Nike, Asos, and Barneys! It’s like everything is on sale, especially when they increase the cash back benefit during seasonal promotions.
  • Free return shipping. Not every retailer is with the times when it comes to free return shipping, but FreeShipping.com gives members easy access to free return shipping. Just print out a FedEx label from their site and drop it off, or return the products on your own using any trackable method and file a rebate.
  • Instant price comparisons and coupons. The site has enhanced search tools that quickly compare prices on items sold by their in-network retailers. And you can always see exclusive coupons, deals and promotions offered by each retailer.
  • A low-price guarantee. If you buy something than see it on sale (online or offline) within 90 days, FreeShipping.com has you covered! They will pay you back up to $100 of the price difference. Only a few retailers offer that kind of protection, and its usually only up to 7 days so this perk really lets you shop with security!
