6 Home Decor Must Haves

When it comes to decorating, often it’s the little details that truly elevate a space. My own style is eclectic and I look for pieces that compliment each other but aren’t too matchy-matchy. So with that in mind, here are a few items that have recently come onto my decorating radar. From a candle that captures the feel of a lazy spring morning to the most stunning pair of bookends I have ever clapped eyes on, these are the six pieces that I straight up need in my home, like yesterday.

1 // Maison Margiela – MMM Lazy Sunday Morning Candle

Is there anything better than waking up at noon on Sunday with the sunshine streaming through your window and the smell of spring flowers and freshly cut grass wafting through the air? No. But this candle is almost as good, with gorgeous notes of aldehydes, lily of the valley, rose, orange flower, pear, and ambrette seed.

2 // Wilko – Ceramic 3D Flower Vase

This pretty periwinkle case looks like something Marie Antoinette would have had adorning her dresser! It’s just the thing to display your fresh from the farmer’s market blooms. It also reminds me of an antique cameo.

3 // Copper Magnetic Desk Set

Sleek + chic + practical + pretty = this glorious rose gold desk set. Keep one on your coffee table to store bits and bobs, in the bathroom to stash away your makeup, and in the office to keep your pens neat and tidy. Basically, keep one in every room of your place.

4 // Bluebellgray – Camilla Pom Pom Cushion 

I am all about pom-poms these days and this funky pillow is covered in flowers which takes it from a like to a love for me (P.S. I also flowers). It’s just the thing to add some colour and cheer to a room full of pared-down neutrals.

5 // AllModern – Abhishek 29″ Table Lamp

From its space-age geometric shape to its bright lemon hue, there’s nothing about this lamp that I don’t love. It’s fun and functional with just a touch of playful quirkiness. Win-win-win.

6 // Jayson Home – Gold Rock Bookend

I have never owned bookends in my life but I think it’s time that I did. I love marble and I love gold. Smack the two together and suddenly I need whatever said object is. These are gorgeous and are like little pieces of art in their own right. Use them to dress up your bookshelf, coffee table, or dresser. Or wherever you darn well please! They would honestly look lovely anywhere.

How would you describe your personal decorating style? What’s your favorite of these pieces? Let’s chat more in the comments!

Splurge and Save | Must Have Decor Items

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 Chairย – ย $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 Candlesย 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 Artย Top to Bottom:ย $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 Organizerย (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.
