Refreshing My Home

How perfect is this marble bookend? I spotted it for a whopping $3 in the clearance area

 Alright, I may have splurged on a bag too!

If you spot this candle on the shelves at Marshalls, please pick it up and smell it. 
I promise you that angels will sing!

Every once in a while I get an itch to purge and refresh my home. We finished our remodel in December and with the stress of the holidays, I have been seriously slacking in the decorating department. With the year starting and a new baby coming in a few weeks (hello, nesting!) I'm itching to get the house in order. Refreshing your home can be a large scale project or something as small as swapping out a few items to your home. One of my favorite ways to freshen up my house is by bringing in fresh greenery from my backyard and lighting clean smelling candles. My home can be crazy, but this helps bring a little serenity and peace to my everyday routine. 

I went to my favorite Marshalls to pick up a few goodies for my kitchen and fireplace decor. I always head there first because I know that I won't spend a fortune on quality pieces. We splurged on beautiful leathered Quartzite countertops, so I really wanted a nice cutting board that we could add on top. Not only does it protect our counters, but it's such a statement. We've received so many compliments on the handcrafted board. I always laugh because who knew you would get so many compliments on a cutting board! One of the items that was important to us when designing our kitchen was to have some glass front cabinets to display pretty dishware and vases. When all the cabinets were put in, I realized I didn't really have much to display, so I've slowly been collecting pieces like this beautiful pale aqua vase for only $12.99. We have a tree full of bay leafs in our yard and I frequently clip pieces off to leave in a vase. So clean and fresh! 

Another project we finished in December was our fireplace facelift. We went for a very clean and simple design and wanted minimal decor on the fireplace to show off the beautiful details. The one must-have item was to find a large piece of art or mirror to add above it. Round mid-century style mirrors have been filling up Pinterest feeds everywhere, so you can understand my excitement when I found this amazing (and heavy!) piece at Marshalls. I was excepting a hefty price tag but it was only $149.99. Score! Those are just a few ways I've refreshed my home and added a little beauty here and there. Now if only I can catch up on my never-ending laundry pile!
