Currently Loving…

2 Jan

As we start a new year, I thought I’d take a little inventory of some of the pretty things currently making my home a happy place. It’s a little Oprah’s Favorite Things without the confetti or the car giveaways. Sorry.

Oh Happy Day

Oh Happy Day – Y’all know I love my home bloggers and Jordan is one of the best. Every post is casually written and beautifully photographed. I look forward to her posts each day not only for decor, party planning and general prettiness, but also inspiration for becoming a better blogger.

Roku 2 XDRoku (Roku 2 XD) – Technology – cords, adaptors, wires – can be ugly. But Roku is petite, stylish and super-smart – the it girl of the tech world, you might say. The company did a great job with the product and its marketing is spot-on. I’m right smack dab in the middle of their target audience and I couldn’t be happier with it. Bring on the Breaking Bad marathons (so not pretty, but how good is that show?)

West Elm Favorite Throw

West Elm Favorite Throw (Slate) – I am always cold. Expect for when I’m burning up. There’s really no middle ground. That is why I love this blanket. It’s warm and cozy, but thin enough to stay wrapped up in for awhile. I’ve even been known to throw it around my shoulders shawl-style while walking around the house. It’s a grown-up security blanket that also chics up my bed. Chics up? Is that a phrase? It should be. (PS. The Favorite Throw is on sale right now! I highly recommend you buy yourself a Monday morning present.)

White Frames – Modern, antique, square, round – if it’s a frame, I’m all over it these days. They don’t even have to be white – that is why God invented spray paint. I am in the midst of building a gallery wall (I can’t wait to share pictures with y’all!) and I’m in Phase 1 – frame hoarding. I’m going for an eclectic mix, but I want to pull it all together by painting every frame white. So for the next few weeks, I’ll be the girl at Goodwill, filling my cart in Housewares.

Oprah Winfrey Reflections on an American Legacy

The Oprah Winfrey Show: Reflections on an American Legacy – Y’all, I love Oprah. I realize this may divide my oh-so-small audience, but I do and I’m standing by it. I get that she can be a bit over the top at times, but I love that she is a self-made woman who has helped so many people realize the importance of owning their lives. If you’re a fan like me, check it out. Bonus: The cover is striking and looks good on a coffee table or nightstand.

Clean Eating Mama

Clean Eating Mama – Here’s another current blog crush to round out the list. It’s not a home decor blog, but healthy food makes happy people…and happy people make pretty homes. Tasha has some great, realistic recipe ideas. I’m not a 100% clean eater (I’m not sure anyone has the time or money to completely eliminate processed food from their diet), but I’ve been learning about where our food comes from and consciously making tweaks. I can honestly say I feel a difference, especially in the energy department. And more energy means more crazy DIY projects. That, my friends, is a win-win-win.

What’s making your home happy these days?
