Have you figured out your own decorating style yet?! Are you totally loving Houzz.com? It’s just so fun! If you missed my last WBAH post on how to figure out your own decorating style you can find it OVER HERE! I mentioned in that post that my own personal decorating style is Transitional Beach style (leaning more on the beach side). Now that I know my decorating style I can start
spending money like a it’s Black Friday every day! looking for some awesome stuff to put in our new house! The first store I picked up a few things at was Marshalls. Do you have a preference between Marshalls, TJMaxx, or Home Goods? I personally really like Home Goods. I don’t know why. I think it’s just more my style or something. Unforutnately our move took us away from Home Goods and closer to Marshalls. So to Marshalls I go, from time to time.
When I go to stores like this I hit up the clearance section first, because why not?! If I can find something that is both amazing and wallet friendly I want to find it right away! Haha! I found two things in the clearance section and I still can’t believe no one bought them before me!
I found these totally cute place mats! They don’t go at all with my current dish set but that’s okay!
Our old set was black and green (which I love… here’s a little throwback to my wedding where the colors I picked were green and black lol). I love the combination but I was just tired of seeing it all of the time. In the 6+ years that we’ve had our dish set we’ve broken a few pieces and chipped others, so it’s okay that the new place mats don’t match the set because we’re getting a new set! Very neutral, probably white!
The second thing hiding in the clearance isle was this adorable coat/ purse/ anything-you-want-to-hang rack. I love it! It’s beachy! I don’t know if I’m totally sold on the black detail, but if I want I can change that no problem. I was also thinking if I’m not totally feeling it as a hang-your-stuff-here rack I could take the hard wear off and hang it vertically for some added decor.
I was all set to leave, awesome clearance items in tow, standing in line, when I happened to look on a shelf of sheets and saw these cuties lurking in the back!
Oh Marshalls, I am one of those people that fall for those check out lane purchases. But I love them! They’re crisp, clean, white, with some GREEN (it’s my favorite color guys!) paisleys. Too adorable. I plopped them in my cart and tried to divert my eyes from any other last minute purchases until it was my turn to check out.
I’m pretty happy with this haul. I have a new sheet set that is totally bright and fun to snuggle in all day, a fun wall decor (or maybe I could even lean it against something… who am I kidding? I have two boys it’ll turn into a weapon!), and some new place mats to inspire my kitchen colors, but that’s a post for another day! 😀
Do you like haul posts? Which is your favorite of the three stores to shop at? Do you have a home decor piece that became the focal point for your design colors?
