Welcome to my blog. Here you'll find posts about my home, my knitting projects, and my travels.

New Decor Additions
My Living Room and Home Office - A Detailed Palette

I've recently added a few new things to the apartment - a few items were given as gifts, while the others I found while traveling/perusing the aisles of Target and TJ Maxx. As you can see above, I actually swapped out one of the pictures with a new one in a gray frame. This new addition is actually a sketch of Reggie that Andy's mom created and gave to me for my birthday. You can see it fully below - it looks just like the Pomeranian sketch I had listed as one of my possible additions to the gallery wall I am working on for the living room. I decided that it looked great above the desk, and I absolutely love it. It is simple, but has so much sentimental value. Plus, even in sketch form, Reggie is just adorable.

I've also added/rearranged the vanity tray that's in the bedroom on the cube shelves. This is one of the first places I go to in the morning as I am getting ready so as to select jewelry for my outfit, and I just love this set up. It includes most of my go-to accessories.

I've also made a few changes to the living room. While I was in Arizona, we stopped by a shop in Sedona. It was there that I found a Himalayan Salt lamp - something I had seen at the yoga studio where I go to practice. While these lamps not only look really cool, they are also supposed to help make indoor air cleaner, as they are negative ion creators. I just think these lamps are incredibly neat, so I decided to get one. It's now on the TV stand.

As you can see above, the gallery wall is also still in the process of being built out. I have two more pieces to hang up and three more pieces to find/purchase before it will be complete.

What do you think of the new additions? 

Have a great Tuesday!
