Serene Surroundings

So many of my bloggin' buds have been posting about home decor and it's been way inspirational! I am living alone in my first apartment and certainly don't have all of the design elements down. At this stage in my life I don't feel stable. By that I mean I am not sure if I want to stay in this apartment or move on. I may find a roommate in another building (it would surely cut down on my high rent fees to have a roomie!) or even move out of never know!

If I could decorate in any way, it'd probably be in warm colors and with fall leaves everywhere. I have an obsession with all things autumn. Halloween too. I'd so decorate with that whole flair if it wouldn't make me look like a freak. I am sure there would be a classy way to do this though if I really wanted. However, that may not be ideal year-round haha!

Here are some items that are more bright and cheery, all from Pier 1. None of the items match, they are just some items that caught my eye.

Ruffle Pillow - $39.95

Antiqued Silver Oval Mirror - Orig. $199.95 Now on Clearance $149.98

I LOVE the Ruffle Pillow. It makes me think of a newly-bloomed rose. So pretty!! :)

This is why I know we’re friends. I am obsessed with fall and love all things autumn/Halloween. I also think it makes great colors to decorate with too!

I wish I had a budget that I could do fall colors during the colder months and switch it up to a beachy theme like you have here for spring and summer. We must have similar taste, because I love everything that you posted, especially the blue/brown chair, ruffle pillow, wall décor and butterfly lantern. Pier 1 is great for good stuff at a reasonable price.

I love the rug and the pillow. We usually decorate with darker colors so it hides our son's spills and messes.
