Inexpensive Fall Decor

It is no secret that I love fall. There’s something about the smells, the colors, and the cooler weather combined with the warm and comforting flavors that just make fall one of the best times of the year. As I type this I’m sitting in my office, fall candle burning, with a cozy sweatshirt on because the air outside is a little too cool by my window. 

Being the housewife that I am, home decor is something I truly love but being the budget conscious woman I also am, I currently don’t go too overboard on the home decor purchases. Still, I can’t help but browse all of the new seasonal home items that hit the shelves every year.

I couldn’t help but gather up some of my favorites, most of which I found at TJMaxx (which has a shoppable website! Did you know that?!) which means the price is very right. From cute pillows to an adorable doormat, there’s a little something that can bring a taste of the season into every room of the home. As you can see, I even found a few Rae Dunn pieces to put in the mix. Trust me, grab them before they’re gone. I actually had a really cute “witches brew” Rae Dunn piece on this list, but by the time I actually got around to writing this post, it was already gone! 😩

Whether you need a new wreath for your wall or a beautiful sparking pillow, there’s a little bit of fall for everyone here. What sort of decor do you look for when shopping seasonally? Are you into wall art & fancy pillows or are you more of a seasonal kitchenware type of person? Let me know! 

6 Ways To Make Your Living Space Feel More Luxurious

I love things that feel pretty, fancy, and a bit glam. As someone who works from home (therefore spending most of my time there), it’s important to me that my living space feels beautiful and luxurious. This is easier said than done for two reasons. 1) I’m on a budget which means high priced items to make my home prettier aren’t always the priority when it comes to spending money, and 2) I live with my husband, who doesn’t care about “pretty” nearly as much as I do. Neat, tidy, and clean, sure, but by no means is my husband a man that cares if the living space feels luxe and beautiful. Let’s be real: the only reason we have upgraded some of our furniture from the old busted leather couches is got as hand me downs after college is because of me and my desire to live like a married couple with a nice home rather than the hand me down bachelor pad my husband had not so carefully fully curated by the time I met him.

While buying new furniture or appliances always feels glamorous and makes home feel a bit fancier (at least that’s how I felt when we said goodbye to those beaten up leather couches and replaced them with what you see in the photos), it’s definitely not budget friendly to make such a purchase every time you want to feel like you’ve had an upgrade. The truth is you don’t need to spend a fortune or buy something large to up the luxe feel of your living space. In fact, I firmly believe that it’s the little details, the small afterthoughts are the things can make a huge impact on your space. I have a few tiny details you can add (or upgrade) to your space to help you feel a little more luxe, even if you’re just curled up on the couch watching some tv. Read more
