{More} New Home Decor

It's official, we closed on our new house this afternoon!  I'm so thrilled and -- at the same time -- nervous about how everything will come together decor-wise.  I guess sometimes you've just got to jump right in and purchase, and then just take it step by step.

Recently I've been hitting up a lot of stores and snapping pictures of things I've liked.  I also take a pic of the price tag.  My camera's memory stick has been a great tool for reviewing found items and playing around with different combos.  Here are some of the fun items I've found so far.

World Market has a great selection that isn't too hard on the wallet.  The suzani drapes (top left) are completely lined and just $29.99 per panel (that price is for 84"; the 96" panels are $34.99/ea).  The rustic metal barstool (top right) is just my style, and a nice pairing with some of the more feminine touches I gravitate toward.  That jute boucle rug (bottom left) is $149 for a 6x9 size ... just hit up the Pottery Barn website if you want a good price comparison.  And those beautiful floral cotton panels (bottom right) are priced the same as the suzani panels.  They are also completely lined.


Ikea also has some great options.  We'll most likely be purchasing two of the Hastveda rattan chairs (top left) which are $49.99 each.  They'll flank each side of the fireplace in the den.  The Gislev rug (top right) is 4'4" x 6'5" and only $19.99.  Perhaps not the best quality, but the perfect addition to the kitchen floor which will receive a lot of foot traffic.  The Husnes mirrors (bottom left) have a beautiful beveled edge and pretty lines.  Did I mention they are only $29.99 each?  And that gorgeous Leran rattan shade (bottom right) is just begging to go over our kitchen table.  It's $89.99.


Sleepy Poet is a local antique mall in Charlotte that is one of my favorite places to visit.  Check out those gorgeous gray Martha Washington chairs with nailhead trim (top left).  The set was priced at $635.  The convex eagle mirror (top right) was marked at $250.  The totally Mad Men-esque chest (bottom left), which also came with a matching mirror, was marked at $295.  And that pretty gray hutch with the perfect amount of distressing (bottom right) was marked at $425.


So far we have purchased this couch and two of these chairs from West Elm.  We have to wait 8-10 weeks to receive them, but I think it will certainly be worth the wait!  They'll be topped with colorful pillows and accented by a side table that I also bought recently that I'm ga-ga over.  Can't wait to tell you all about it!

  7. I love World Market! The Sleepy Poet also looks really great, I'll have to ask my best friend that lives in Charlotte if she's ever been. One thing that's always stuck with me about decorating was something Nate Berkus said on an episode of Oprah (ha!): He said that if you see something you love to buy it; if you love it you'll find a place for it, even if it doesn't necessarily go with your other decor.
