Home Decor On A Budget

IKEA is one of my favorite places in this world. Everything is colorful and beautiful, the prices are good, and HELLO,  Swedish meatballs. However, if you don’t feel quite so strongly about IKEA and would rather avoid a few extra trips to their labyrinthine stores, this new app may be just what you have been waiting for. It’s an augmented reality app that allows you to use your phone to picture IKEA’s furniture in your home. Instead of focusing on the width and length of your purchases, you can get a visual representation of how it will actually look. The furniture appears in 3D over your room so that you can see if the couch is too big or even if the color isn’t quite right. The future is here, people! Or, as IKEA would say, schmergenflergenblerg. [CNBC] [Image via IKEA]

I recently bought myself a Dolly Parton prayer candle (because hello, it was $7 and I truly do view her as a powerful, sequined deity), and let me tell you: I’m pretty sure my repeated requests for for bigger hair and sassier comebacks are paying off.

Random Home Inspiration: Curiosity Shops

Eccentric home decor

One of my weaknesses has always been eccentric little shops with tapestries hung in the front window and oh-my-God-are-those-real human skulls displayed on shelves. Bonus points if there is a woman behind the counter who resembles a character from “Hocus Pocus.” I could spend hours smelling all the essential oils and digging through the assortment of weird, witchy merchandise. I recently bought a porcelain palmistry palm statue for my desk at just this type of curiosity shop, and I thought it might be fun to round up some other home decorating pieces with a similar vibe. Get all the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Home Inspiration: 10 Crazy Cool Bookshelves

I am of the mind that there is no such thing as an ugly bookshelf.

That being said, there is definitely such a thing as a bookshelf that is even more awesome than usual.

So you guys may remember The Ugly Desk, which I bought on a whim and de-uglified with a couple coats of teal paint. Ready for part two of the saga? The Ugly Desk came with an Ugly Chair, pictured above. This chair might actually be uglier than the desk — the style and fabric are very mid-90s accounting firm conference room, which is not exactly the vibe I go for in my home decorating scheme. I’ve kept it this long because it’s surprisingly comfy and a good height for the desk. So here’s my question: is this chair worth an attempted makeover? I was thinking of trying to recover the seat and back with a cute fabric (maybe polka dots?), and I could even spray paint the legs and armrests if I was feeling really crafty. Keep reading »
