Hi loves! I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Amelia from LuxeDecor. LuxeDecor is an online furniture retailer who specializes in creating curated collections and interior design blogging. I picked out a ton of items that I would decorate my apartment with (each item is linked in the post!). Check out Amelia's guest post below and visit LuxeDecor for all your stylish furniture needs!
Designing a chic and sophisticated space can be a challenge without extra funds. If you’re hoping to give your home a fashionable facelift without splurging on tons of extravagant and expensive décor, there are many options available. A few small decorating tweaks can have a major impact—from outfitting the floor with a pretty new rug to adorning the walls with original artwork, there are plenty of ways to add serious style without breaking the bank.

A bright living space is filled with bold colors and eclectic prints. Far from boring, this cool living space delivers big on style points. To create a modern and mesmerizing space, it’s important to play with color and experiment with different motifs. A rectangular pink area rug is dynamic eye candy, while a rainbow striped pillow adds tons of glamorous appeal.

A contemporary living space looks like a posh hotel with a bit of design zing. Pops of purple, gold accents and a few funky furnishings make this wild and whimsical space feel elegant. A square glimmering gold cocktail table is perfect for hosting family gatherings and late night soirees, while a matching rectangular end table is charming with a champagne metal finish. A few marble table lamps finish off this eclectic home space.

Regal and refined but still totally hip, this cozy bedroom is full of fun frills. Relax and unwind in a space with showroom-worthy style. Fur footstools give this sleeping chamber a bit of panache and a soft place to rest tired feet, while gold metal bowls offer any nightly nest a spot for storage and keepsakes. A gilded gold frame filled with sweet memories is ideal for a bedside table.

Work projects will feel like joyful endeavors in this swanky office space. Overflowing with tons of fun accessories and lot of beloved treasures, this study is not short on personality. A tall gold bookcase works well in a contemporary home work station, while items like a lotus candleholder, ceramic pineapple and gold vase add fresh, fun vibes to a practical space.

Thank You cards. I love receiving them and I love sending them! I received a thank you card from my campus children's church coordinator the other day for serving and it really put a smile on my face! Thank you cards aren't just for graduation or wedding shower gifts-- they can be sent just because. My best friend lives five hours away from me and sometimes I just like to send a Thank You card along with a little gift to show her how much I appreciate our friendship!
Just like any card or stationery, Thank You cards come in all types of colors, sizes, paper cuts, and hit at various price points! Both the green-striped and yellow cards above were in a pack of 6 for under $4! How cute are they?! [I picked up the green-striped cards at my local TJ Maxx (they are by Meri Meri) and the yellow ones I purchased at a local dollar store.]
Take a little time this season to send a few Thank You cards to those who have helped you out, good friends, former teachers, and for those awesome gifts you got for your birthday!

It's Monday again, so that means an all new #SimplyMondayMusings post! I've had home decor and apartment styling on the brain as of lately and I'm really ready to get out of my current space and into someplace fresh & new. With that said, it's never too early to start planning, right?
I've got this thing for white furniture. It's crisp and clean, just the way I like it! Plus, it's an easy backdrop to add color, texture, and unique pieces to. Not to mention, it's far from overwhelming. It's a sleek look that never goes out of style.
Take a look at some of the things that are helping me define my home style!
