Happy Thursday! I’m not sure if I’ve shared this on here yet or not, but Chris and I are currently in the process of moving! I hate moving in the sense that packing is annoying and until you’re completely unpacked everything is just everywhere and you can never find anything when you need it. I love moving in the sense that it’s the perfect time to purge and get rid of everything you don’t need ( one of my favorite things EVER ) and I personally just kind of feel like it’s the perfect excuse to do a little redecorating 😉 I mean, new space new decorations, totally justifiable over here in Madison Land.
Anyone that knows me well would describe my style as “farmhouse” which I love. But sometimes I’m torn and see gorgeous rooms on Instagram that anything but farmhouse and want everything to be all boho chic with pops of gorgeous color and geometric patterns everywhere. Unfortunately the two styles just really don’t go well together ( at least not for me ) so I have to really go with what I truly love and with what works for Chris and I.
If I had my dream home everything would be wide open, white & marble with natural wood accents and hues of green with indoor plants scattered throughout the house. Chris thinks I’m nuts because “our house can’t be white” but I’m like uhhhh yes it can LOL. So finding that balance where our space feels light, open and clean, while making Chris happy with different colored accents has been a really fun challenge!
I chose the color green to add accents because I find it a very calming color. I want our home to be a relaxing space where we, and anyone that comes over, feels at home, comfortable and calm.
To add more green I’ve been on an indoor plant kick lately and can’t wait to go pick some more up when we are able to officially move in. They purify your air and can fill in an empty corner where you aren’t sure what to put there. I’m super excited and will probably do a whole post on indoor plants when the time comes.
So while I’ve been slowly going insane looking at all the clutter and boxes until we can move in and unpack ( and finally ORGANIZE the shiz out of everything ) I have been online shopping like it’s my job.
I’ve put together this collage so ya’ll can see what’s in all my online carts! Happy shopping 🙂
#1. Indoor Palm Plant
#2. White Plant Stand
#3. Gold Framed Mirror – I plan on getting two of these and putting one above each of our nightstands on the wall.
#4. Ceramic Cactus Decorations
#5. Farmhouse Shelving Unit – Would love to use this as a makeshift bar cart!
#6. Nude Frayed Throw Pillow – How cozy would this look on the bed?!
#7. Nude Quilted Throw Pillows – Teddy totally destroyed our other couch pillows, so perfect excuse for a new pair!
#8. Clear Storage Containers – Target has multiple sizes of these! I plan on using them for pretty bathroom storage for my epsom salts, cotton pads, things like that.
#9. Woven Basket – So cute to store extra throw blankets in for the living room.
#10. Round Woven Baskets W/Lids – Saw these online on Ikea and couldn’t resist. So good for bathroom storage for things you use regularly, so don’t want stuffed in a closet, but don’t want visible either, like nail polish! Ya know?
#11. String Lights – These will be strung across our headboard in place of lamps on our nightstands.
#12. Marble Trays – I want to use the small for the bathroom counter to hold the soap & toothbrush holder. I’ll use the big one as a perfume/cologne tray on our dresser in our bedroom.
#13. Distressed Floral Knobs – I found these at Hobby Lobby and am OBSESSED. Chris is building us some farmhouse nightstands and I’m going to put these knobs on the drawers.
#14. Acrylic Drawer Organizer – I plan getting a few of these. Our new bathroom has drawers under the sink instead of cabinets so these will be perfect for organizing my makeup and other things I don’t want cluttering our counter space.
#15. White Clock – I love this clock! I will probably re paint the numbers with this pretty light green chalk paint that I have so it goes with our other decor better.
#16. Striped Throw Blankets – These are only $19 from Target and they are super lightweight, soft, and perfect for the couch! I love that colors are super neutral and not too bright. I seriously can’t decide on which one I want the most!
I seriously am SO excited to move in and get my organization & decorating on! Is it crazy how happy home decor makes me? Maybe don’t answer that LOL.
I also plan on switching us from tacky plastic hangers to these gorgeous nude velvet hangers. They take up way less space ( hi, more room for new clothes! ) and garments will not fall off of them. I want to use the nude for my clothes and get some black ones for Chris’s clothes.
ALSO, new space means stocking up on my favorite candle of allllll time. Not only is it gold so it matches but you guys, the smell, like I wish I could bathe in it and I am not even kidding. If I could have a lifetime supply of this candle I could die a happy woman.
Do you guys love home decor as much as I do?! What are you best organization tips for moving into a new space?
