MY RANDOM FRIDAY FAVORITES

TGIF!

While a part of me would love to be leisurely enjoying a cup of coffee on the couch right now, I'm more excited to be heading out the door today to furniture shop with clients. We've got a whole beautiful new house to fill and times-a-tickin' to get it complete! (Have I mentioned how much I love what I do?!)

***********

For this week's RANDOM FRIDAY FAVORITES post I found a great assortment of random home decor items to share.

So. Here. You. Go!

  1. This amazing IKEA cabinet! How amazing?! And the price is unbelievable! Sadly every location I've checked says it's "unavailable". Has anyone seen it in person? Know of any locations where it's in stock?
  2. I always love to check Serena & Lily's sale items for deals and I just came across this headboard that I'm 99% sure is identical to my childhood bed. Mom, amiright? Wouldn't it look so cute in a little girl's bedroom, or even a boho inspired guest room? Love.
  3. Speaking of a killer Serena & Lily deal...our new family room rug is on major sale in the nantucket red version. This rug, in the right room (or even outdoor space), would look amazing.  And I can personally vouch for it's softness and good looks!
  4. This would make a sweet hostess gift. I could definitely use a new set of cheese knives...I mean, who doesn't? They're something you never want to buy yourself, but to receive as a present is just perfect.
  5. Speaking of gifts...this, this, this, this, this, AND this would all make fantastic holiday gifts (to give or receive!)! And bonus, they're all 30% off!
  6. I've had my eye on this big guy for years! While currently on sale, I'm still not sure I can justify the hefty price. Isn't it pretty though? I can see it on a counter or buffet, or even a bookshelf to hide a stash of candy or cookies!
  7. Remember my favorite shoes that I shared in my last Friday Favorites? Well I just came across this copy. This pair is a fraction of the price and comes in a variety of colors. They definitely look cheaper than the originals, but hey, if you want this look for less I think these are a great alternative!

That's all I've got for now. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! See you back here on Monday!

OUR COASTAL MODERN HANUKKAH DECOR

It's safe to say I love decorating. Specifically this time of year! I mean, who doesn't!? My mom always made such a big deal of putting up our homemade and store-bought Hanukkah decorations and I love that my boys get just as excited when they see the Hanukkah box come down from the closet. Side note: I have such an idealistic view of how decorating with the kiddos is going to go every single year, and without fail it becomes a memorably comical and stressful experience. We all have the best intentions going into it, like it's going to be this magical experience hanging things up together with smiles on our faces. But the reality is that mid-decorating I'm screaming "please don't touch that....let mommy do the rest!" Anyone else relate?

Anyway, I'm happy that our Hanukkah decorations are finally up, so I thought I'd give you a peek into our coastal modern Hanukkah decor this year.

Unlike Christmas decorations, that come in a plethora of options year after year, Hanukkah decorations are more limited. I've slowly been acquiring things throughout the years from places like The Land of Nod, Crate & Barrel, CB2, Pottery Barn, Target, and Etsy (just to name a few), and I finally feel like our holiday decor reflects our everyday style better than ever.

My feeling is, how can you ever go wrong for a holiday with a color scheme of blue and white, with hints of metallics?

Last year I decided to add these ornaments to the mix, and while at first this Jewish girl felt rebellious buying Christmas decorations, I'm so happy to include them into our Hanukkah arsenal. They add such a fun, festive, and colorful pop to a few tall glass vases.

I also decided to decorate our staircase this year with some glittery star + pom pom garland that I found in the $1 bin area of Target (for $3 each mind you!). I can't find this specific one online to share, but I have no doubt your local Target has them available in the small Hanukkah area.

I'm happy with the simplicity of this year's decorations, and look forward to adding a few new items to the mix. Check out these good looking (and far from cheesy!) Hanukkah finds I recently came across:
