Home Inspiration: Styled With Studs!

There's something about studs that bring a wee bit of badass to whatever they adorn. While recently shopping around TJ Maxx for a loveseat, I stumbled upon some furniture and home accessories that I loved, and they all had one thing in common— studs. Whether they're muted metallic or shiny…

Home Inspiration: Petite Succulent Pots From Etsy

Succulents are low maintenance plants that provide owners the illusion of a green thumb. Unlike more temperamental plants, succulents simply need a few hours of sunlight and a bit of water. Because these plants have shallow roots, the planter possibilities are endless! The hardest part is picking which pot to plant yours in...

Home Inspiration: 10 Bar Carts For Under $150

"I'm outdoorsy in that I like getting drunk on patios," pretty much sums me up to a T. I think we can all agree that one of the best things about the warm weather is the ability to throw back cocktails in the sunshine, am I right? So when the people move from indoors to…

Home Inspiration: Trays For $40 Or Less!

Jessica and I have a shared passion for trays, which probably stems from our shared phobia of germs. Trays are basically a cute way of telling others to CONTAIN THEIR MESS.

Home Inspiration: Wine Racks For $50 Or Less

The “proper way” to store wine -- butt up -- originated out of a need to keep natural corks moist. Natural corks can dry and shrink over time allowing air into the bottle, oxidizing and spoiling the wine. Many wineries use screw tops and synthetic corks to minimize the risk, and let’s be honest, wine…

Home Inspiration: 15 Perfect Porch Situations

One of my favorite things about living in the south is the way people here take porches (and sitting on them) REALLY seriously.

Home Inspiration: 20 Gorgeous Gallery Walls

One of the things I'm most excited about in regards to owning my own home is that I can put as many poorly planned nail holes in the wall as I want, without worrying about disapproving looks from my landlord. The walls of our current house have stayed largely empty (so depressing) because…

Home Inspiration: Pretty Patterned Pillow Combinations

It is finally starting to warm up here in NYC and I personally can’t wait for the bright colors of budding spring. Tulips! Daffodils! Peonies!
