I love a beautiful home and I love home décor shopping! Today I’m sharing a handful of my favorite things we’ve put in our home over the years if you’re looking for new ideas to spruce up your place . . .
Pottery Barn Park Hill Lanterns: These lanterns range from $49 – $179 and are perfect near a large fireplace/mantel, on an accent table behind a couch, or set off to the side in an entryway. They look best with battery operated flameless candles and serve for great mood lighting during parties or special dinners at your house.

Nap Blanket: This is THE BEST blanket on the market. It’s available at Brookstone anywhere from $79 – $89 depending upon the size. They make great throw blankets and they’re large enough for a bed (available in queen and king). It is the softest best blanket of all times! If you’re a parent reading this and need a gift for your adult child . . . look no further. Caution: may cause laziness and long periods of reading books or binge watching TV.

Pottery Barn Clift Oversized Glass Pendant: The item we get the single biggest compliment on in our house is this giant glass pendant above our dining room table. We literally spent years trying to find the perfect light that we both liked and this one seemed to match our simple yet unique style. It’ll run ya about $399 (on sale right now for $359), but for a purchase like this that you keep for years and years . . . I can justify that it’s worth it!

IKEA Mongstad Mirror: When we first got married, we were still trying to figure out what our style was — or should I say, how our styles would merge. When you can’t decide on a piece of artwork for the wall, go with a mirror! We bought this mirror for $99 from IKEA and contrary to this photo, we have it hanging horizontally in our living room behind the couch. It’s a piece you can keep forever because how could a mirror possibly go out of style?! Caution: If you both drive Honda cars at the time of purchase, trust us, it will not fit in your car. If you send your mom to pick it up in her Honda, it won’t fit in hers either.

Custom Closets by Easy Closets: When we heard customizing your closet was a thing, we had someone from a local well-known company come over and give us a quote — and while the blueprint was awesome, the price tag was outrageous! So we took the measurements and ordered essentially the same thing from Easy Closets and it has been a dream in our master closet. We (and by “we” I mean Chris) went on to customize shelves that he put in our garage for our shoes, and most recently customized his closet in his office to hold his hunting gear and miscellaneous cords and computer stuff men always have randomly stored somewhere. It does take some work on the buyer’s end — measuring accurately, determining what design works best for you, and then installing it (it took us 14 hours in our master closet, and took Chris probably half of that for his office closet) but the organization is so worth it! Price is based on size and customizations (if you have a walk-in, plan on $700ish and up).
