I don’t really have a specific aesthetic when it comes to decorating. I bounce around from feminine and hyper girly, with floral motifs, ornately carved furniture and dainty figurines to clean and minimalistic with a neutral colour palette. I am easily bored and have difficulty committing to a specific theme and so my style is eclectic with a mish-mash of colours, styles and textures. Below are four items that I can’t wait to incorporate into my space.
Splurge | Luxurious Leather Chair – $1,698 (Anthropologie)
I absolutely love the royal blue hue of the leather (it’s my favorite colour). The antique floral fabric and ornate bronze feet lend a Marie Antoinette vibe to this piece that is elegant yet whimsical.
Save | Quirky Candles L to R: $18, $14, $24 (Urban Outfitters)
I am truly a candle addict. I have them everywhere, some scented and some not. Candles have a way of adding ambiance to a room in a subtle but meaningful way. Our sense of smell is one of our most powerful senses and is intrinsically linked to the part of our brain that stores our memories and emotions. These cute little candles will not only infuse your space with fragrance, but they will add character and quirky charm.
Save | Etsy Art Top to Bottom: $75, $25 (Etsy)
When most people think of art they think of grand paintings and sculptures worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars. The truth is one does not need to spend an extravagant amount of money to start a dynamic, compelling art collection. Art schools often hold gallery openings where students and graduates sell their pieces for a relatively affordable price. Another great online source is Etsy. Up and coming as well as established designers use the online market to market and sell their pieces, often which are exclusive. It’s a great place to find unique, inexpensive and often one of a kind pieces.
Splurge | Magnetic Spice Organizer (Etsy) – $85
I am not one for practicality as much as I am one for pretty things. That’s why I love when I find products that are as aesthetically appealing as they are functional. Shaped like a honey comb, these magnetic spice jars keep one’s counter space clear in an artistic way.
