The Style-ish Home: Details, Details5:00 AM
I get a lot of requests to post some pictures of our home decor as I think you think that the way I dress translates well into how I decorate my house. Well, sorry to disappoint you but I'm hardly the interior decorator. I kind of throw things together and hope that it looks good. LOL. With that said, we recently added a few things to our space and thought that I'd share some details with you.
As I mentioned before, hubs and I love antique shopping and we usually find things to add as accents to our place. I mainly fall in love with beautiful chandeliers and mirrors that cost a billion dollars that couldn't fit into our place anyway but we do stumble upon some great smaller and much cheaper finds. We recently found a dealer that only sells vintage signs and letters and it is so fun picking through all the old signs and imagining where they used to hang at. We picked these up and are a great addition to our shelves. (BTW, for my new readers, our last name is "Ish" hence the "style-ish".)
(Also, if you are wondering, yes those are concrete walls. We live in an urban style loft with concrete floor and walls, high ceilings and pipes running along the ceilings.)
A pretty holder for all my knickknacks that I seem to collect in the bathroom, hair accessories, lipgloss and my rings when I take them off to wash my hands. I got this at an antique store as well (but I don't think it's quite that antique, maybe from the 70's or 80's).
Speaking of rings, check out my new lovely, the YSL arty ring. I first saw it on one of my BFF's who has the turquoise one and I lusted after it. YSL.com finally got them back in stock (they were sold out for a long time) so was super excited to finally get one. I have tried not to wear it every single day but I really want to. It's gorgeous and now I want another!
My home style is very much modern but with a girly twist. I love modern furniture but I'll mix it up with small girly details like the mirrored tray or those prints in the bathroom. Our kitchen right now is crappy and I won't be sharing what it looks like but this kitchen below is what I love. So clean and sleek but the chandelier adds just the perfect touch. I'm saving this picture for our future house!
Other than antique stores, hubs and I love shopping at Velocity Art & Design for home stuff. We go there at least a few times a month (mainly because it is next to our favorite coffee shop) but we always find something that we want from there. Do you have any great online stores that you shop at for home stuff? Please share!
