SCS Home Wish List 01.

home wish list, home decor, affordable home decor, living room refresh

October will mark my three-year anniversary of living in my current apartment. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’ve decided to finally decorate my living room (gasp)! But in all seriousness, my roommate and I are upgrading our living room. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years now, but I couldn’t afford it until recently. I’m excited to finally be able to dedicate some time and money to making that space feel like home.

We’ve already made some strides: there’s a new bookshelf in the living room, we got rid of my well-worn loveseat from college and replaced it with a normal-sized couch, and we’ve tossed the standing coat rack and replaced it with a hanging rack on the wall (much more space efficient).

I’ve really been bitten by the decor bug and for the last couple weeks I’ve spent many hours on the web browsing for home inspiration and decor. I’ve already placed an Ikea order and a Target order, which will hopefully arrive later this week. If the furniture does arrive this weekend, my plan is to try and put it all together (at home assembly, here I come!). I’ll try to take before and after pictures too so that I can show you guys the transformation.

Once we have the bigger pieces set up, it will be all about the details. I have my eye on a few pretty pieces- shop them below!

01. Moss-knit Blanket 02. Copper Task Lamp 03. Chindi Colorblock Pillow 04. Velvet Cushion Cover 05. Metallic Triangle Pillow 06. Glass Tea Light Holder 07. Ceramic Geo Vase 08. Copper Faceted Lamp 09. Magical Thinking Feather Planter

      Yes, they do have really cute home goods (and they’re well-priced too). Target does it again! :)

    Housewares have been at the forefront of my mind as well! Congrats on the three year revamp. I’m sure it will feel like a new place before you know it.

    Love that metallic pillow so much!
