What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Hitting Refresh



Chunky throw (and beautiful styling) by PuffyWoolDecor

Looking for a way to revive and refresh your living or work space? Me, too!

I know it’s Thursday, but I’m giving Etsomnia™ the next couple of weeks off. We’re moving tomorrow (gulp), and I’m too busy to be funny.

Since we’re headed home, we’ll once again be surrounded by our favorite things. But though I’m essentially putting the house back the way it was a year and a half ago, I still want to brighten things up a bit. With the exception of the bedroom, we’re not replacing any furniture, and I have no business buying MORE art (seriously, it’s a sickness), but I still want to make some little changes to wake up the joint.

So today, I thought I’d share with you all a list of smallish, budget-friendly items (on Etsy, naturally) that could be just what you (I) need without overpowering your (my) space.

  5. Yet again a post proves that we have very similar taste. While I would not buy all of these items for my own home – because I wouldn’t use them – they all appeal to my sense of style. I especially really love that copper lamp you showcased right at the top. I am mentally scouring my house right now trying to think of another space that would benefit from a table lamp.


  6. Lovely accoutrements!!


  7. Amazing blog! Can we repost?
