The Official Holiday Home Decor Post

December 6, 2019 in Interior Style - No Comments

“We don’t need new ornaments.” Kyle replied. Even though that wasn’t my question. My question was – “What do you think of these ornaments?” No one needs a box of plastic Christmas ornaments from Hobby Lobby – especially not us, because – as Kyle has so logically pointed out – we have an entire box of Christmas ornaments at home.



But those are bright red, and glittery. And honestly, the red doesn’t go with anything in our living room. Not to be a stick in the mud when it comes to home decor – but every piece of furniture that we own is either black, white, cream or grey. We have zero red accents. We have some gold accents – but no red.



It’s not that I’m anti-color, I just think that the neutral tones make our smaller space look classy and sophisticated.



Okay, fine. So maybe I am a stick in the mud.



“Wouldn’t these look nice?” I suggested, pulling the box of bronze and cream colored ornaments off the shelf. I don’t know why I was expecting him to say – “Those look great! Wow – and they’re ON SALE? Let’s buy them!”

Decorating our new apartment!

June 28, 2017 in Interior Style - 1 Comment

Here’s something I never thought I’d say: “We need shelf liner.”

Shelf liner used to be just one of those dumb “extra”, “Mom”-type things that somehow found it’s way into every apartment that I’ve ever lived in – cut up, and laid flat in the kitchen cabinets.

I say “somehow” like it magically appeared there. It didn’t. My mom would buy this stuff for me – because she’s a mom, and it’s kind of a “mom” thing – and say “This is to line the shelves of your kitchen cabinets before you put the dishes away.” And I would say “Oh, okay, cool” – even though I had no idea why. Does it stop your plates from sliding around? (Can plates really just “slide” around in there?) Does it stop your glasses from smelling like *shelf*? (Aka, wood). Can it keep you from getting splinters?

I don’t know. It might just be wallpaper for the kitchen cabinets. But – whatever it does – I knew that I needed it for our new apartment before I could put the dishes away. God forbid we put away our Target brand plates and funny wine glasses that say things like “I make pour decisions” into a cabinet with naked shelves.
