Weekly Loved List: 04.18.21

Hi friends! It’s been a rainy, slow, self-care kinda week — I’d be lying if I said that the past seven days were full of productivity and inspiring events. I took it slow and listened to what my body needed, didn’t guilt myself for not being quote on quote productive and enjoyed a lot of blog reading, scrolling the internet, and watching Netflix. Here’s all the links for everything I loved this week!

If you’re going to invest in one designer piece this spring and summer I highly recommend making it the Chloé’s canvas slides!

They have a slight heel and a chic square toe, easy to slip on with everything from slouchy linens to jean to floaty skirts and dresses!

Here’s a little tidbit you most likely didn’t know about me — my heart bursts of happiness when it comes to honeybees. I love their tiny fuzzy bums and I make it my mission every summer to save as many as I can. So when I scrolled upon Texas Beeworks on tiktok I was mesmerized. Erika is a professional beekeeper and she is amazing at what she does!

You’ll always find greenhouses/green spaces on my dream home mood-board — a cosy space with tons of light and tons of plants. There’s a magical little place called East Nash Greenhouse that makes me stop in awe because it’s exactly what I fantasize about, check it out for yourself!

Wishlist – everything in my cart for the Sephora Spring Savings event

I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Supergoop! – Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ so it’s definitely in my cart this time around – I’m drawn to the fact that it’s weightless, scentless, and can be used as a daily primer before applying your make-up.

The Best Self Tanners for Summer at Sephora

If you’ve been following the blog since last summer you’ll know that’s when I discovered St. Tropez and their amazing line of self tanners. Last year I used the self tan express bronzing mousse and I love it because it gets me so dark in just three hours and I don’t have to sleep in the bronzer. This year I figured I would try something new and I picked up the same formula but in the mist version, I’ll give you guys an update once I get the chance to try it out! The application is pretty much the same so if you get either of these tanners you’ll need the application mitt for the best results.

I hope you’re able to grab all of your spring and summer stables this week! Happy shopping xx.

Popular Home Decor Trends [2]

Still standing as my most popular blog post is the popular home decor trends round up, however that was all the way back in 2019! Over two years ago! Time really does fly and while that blog post is still being viewed by tons of you regularly, I thought that it was time to bring it up to date. Some trends are timeless and therefore you can still apply some of the decor elements highlighted in the original home decor trend post. For the most part though, interior design is consistently changing and evolving season to season and definitely from year to year. I’m super excited to review the most recent home decorating trends with you that I personally believe we will be seeing a lot of in 2021.

Lots of Colour

Last year was all about muted tones and neutral palettes which matched most our moods and made sense to create a soothing environment at home while the outside world was pure chaos. Everyone was just trying to get by in 2020 but we’re seeing a shift with the new year and the COVID-19 vaccine becoming available to the public, slowly but surely. There’s hope in the air and bright pops of color help reflect the positive energy we’re all manifesting while somehow signifying the growth last year brought.

Colour Blocking

Long live the days of fully painted accent walls, we’re moving into a new generation of dynamic and vibrant colour blocks with minimal wall decor! It’s truly incredible how much influence a bold colour block brings into a space, it livens up even the darkest of rooms or can create a moody vibe in your already brightly lit spaces. You can get so creative when it comes to design– extremely simple, unique geometric, incorporate arches, use shape or abstracting lines.

Coloured Furniture

An era has returned and no, you aren’t looking at your grandmas old couch! Beautiful shades of deep greens, butterscotch yellows, and mauve purples have been flooding my feeds and are taking up space in most bohemian styled homes. Couches in every colour of the rainbow can liven up your living area and give it a dose of drama and personality- it will definitely be the wow factor of the room.

Oversized Couches

Comfortable yet chic is a trend that was prominent all throughout 2020 and we’re seeing it being carried through to this year as well. Sectional couches in particular are becoming a living room stable for multiple reasons– they’re usually deeper than the average couch therefore giving the oversized feel, can be configured in multiple ways, and typically are available in a variety of price points. Win/win/win!

The most popular oversized sectional sofa is the cloud sectional from RH and with good reason, however the price tag is hefty. I’ve rounded my favourite dupes for the famous sofa that are a third, if not half the price with all the same coziness!

  2. Modular Urban Sectional
  3. Cameron Reversible Modular Sectional with Ottoman
  4. Lounge II Sectional Sofa
  5. Lianne Reversible Sectional
  6. Lumin White Line Sectional Sofa

Natural Elements

Nature inspired design is a timeless trend with a style that is everlasting. From wood, glass, and wool to seagrass and wicker, natural materials breathe new life to the home. Most decor pieces that are designed with nature in mind emulate a very neutral and versatile tone that helps to bring a balance to all the pops of colour we’re seeing in most homes. Versatile trends my favourites because it resonates with so many of you, whether your style is glam, modern, boho, farmhouse, or rustic!

Wood

Wood is just so warm and I’m all about warm, cosy spaces in the home. The texture and grain of wood also bring organic interest into a room, while giving off that inviting lived-in feeling.

Glass

Decorating with glass accent pieces makes a space feel bright and airy. The translucency of the material allows light to flow while also giving you something visually pleasing to look at. I love that glass decor is extremely versatile as well and can be used in multiple different ways, the most popular being vases and glass bottles.

Wicker

Add instant natural texture into your home with wicker, rattan, or seagrass! The options are plentiful and include everything from light fixtures and seating to baskets and decorative trays. Wicker in particular is super light, durable, and can be used as indoor and outdoor furniture- not to mention the relaxing vibes it brings to any space you incorporate it into.

Texture and Layers

The coziest spaces are generous on the layers! A common theme you’ll see throughout homes this year is patterned throw blankets, tasselled pillow shams, and plush designer rugs. These are the items that are often overlooked but can be the pièce de résistance and really make a room feel complete.

Popular Home Decor Trends

Since moving into a new house this past February, all I’ve been thinking about is home decor. I have been obsessed with finding the trendiest items that I can utilize while currently living here but also take with me when my girlfriend and I get our own place.

My room is really coming along, and I’m happy with how everything is looking- it just needs a few more finishing touches and when that gets done (eventually) I would love to do a room tour for you guys!

Blanket Ladder

Blanket ladders bring an element of comfort to your area, despite the fact that blankets make anything feel cozy, I never thought that they would also make a great home decor item until now.

I find that blanket ladders also bring a rustic feel to the space, they have a real country side vibe. It’s such a simple yet adorable accent that is also super functional! Storing your throws has never been more aesthetically pleasing.

Shop blanket ladders here! Or grab this one from Amazon!

Shelves

Floating Shelves

Floating shelves are great because there is a ton of variety when it comes to what look you want to go for. Among the dozens of styles you can chose from some of my favourites are corner shelves, rustic wood shelves, and boho themed shelves that feature different shapes. Floating shelves are also a great space saver for those who don’t have room for a full sized shelving unit.

Shelves are one of those decor pieces that will always be really easy to style. On my shelves I always have picture frames, plants, and little knickknacks- I also have a cute little light that I scored from the dollar store! Style it to your preference, or even use it to simply store your books!

Shop Rustic Wall Mounted Floating Shelves! OR these super modern Reed Floating Shelves from Pottery Barn.

Hanging Shelves

Much like floating shelves, hanging shelves also come in a variety of different styles and are great space savers! The only major difference is that these shelves don’t appear to be floating, you can physically see what hardware is used to install them to the wall.

I know what you’re thinking, why would I want to see the hardware when I can buy a floating shelf and hide it? Hanging shelves have such an aesthetically pleasing value when you chose the right one- they are more commonly being made with hardware that is easy on the eyes such as leather (for all my animal lovers out there make sure it’s faux!), rope, or wire.

Belly Baskets

You’ve probably seen this specific type of woven baskets before (especially with its growing popularity) but are you surprised at the cute name? Belly baskets have a unique shape that some people say resembles a full tummy- thus giving it the name.

I love versatile products that I can find many uses for and these baskets can handle many jobs! I’ve seen them as plant holders, laundry baskets, nursery room organizers, blanket storage, you name it! On top of that they are so adorable, and if you’re someone who likes to DIY it’s a perfect project to paint or spruce up to add a personal touch.

Grab a cute belly basket for only $26.99! OR grab this one for $18.99 if you’re a prime member!

Macrame

Macrame, or wall hangings, have become increasingly popular over the last few years- partly because they are freakin’ adorable, and partly because the small business world is booming! Supporting local and small business owners has never been more of a thing these days, and a lot of the beautiful macrame you see circulating is handmade!

I find that it adds just the right amount of boho to any area in your home, and it also looks good in any area of your home!

Support small business’ and browse for some Macrame on Etsy!

Trays

Who knew that trays could be so trendy? I often see them being used for storage, mixed in which a couple of knickknacks and honestly there is just something so aesthetically pleasing about that. They are also commonly used specifically for several decor pieces to create a focal point in the room. Either way it’s used, I’m here for it and loving it.

Shop a variety of decorative trays by Bed, Bath, and Beyond!

That’s all I have for popular decor items (for now), if you like this post and want to see more in the future make sure to leave a comment letting me know!
