Home Improvement Starts With The Details

When it comes to home improvements, I have always thought that to really make a change and splash I would have to go big, knock down some walls and repaint every space, but that is not the case. When I was exploring Wayfair and all its amazing things, I realized making a splash with home improvements is all in the details.

Here are some of my favorite details that I look forward to adding to my different spaces! Hope it inspires you and remember we can all make a splash in our own space.

1. Ridgecrest Mountain Oakley Single Dummy Doorknob with Square Rosette // More Door Knobs 2. Georgian Hall and Closet Knob with Brookshire Trim // More Door Hardware & Accessories 3. Bamboo Varying Length Solid Flooring // More Hardwood Flooring 4. Walnut Laminate Flooring // More Laminate Flooring

Ever since I was little I have always wanted to go to Paris and anytime I saw Paris on TV or in a movie it heightened my dream to go to Paris. 

What really just confirmed my love of Paris was the movie ‘Midnight in Paris.’ Truly fell in love all over again with Paris and more. I have my outfits planned for each occasion and historical spot I want to visit as well as my coffee spots where I will have a tea latte and French macaroon. I can’t wait to go and that is one of my goals for 2020, go to Paris and soak up as much as I can. Here’s to the trip of my dreams. I have listed some of my favorites I have that I want to go to. See below and let me know what your favorites have been when visiting Paris.

Thanksgiving Picks on Wayfair

One of my favorite things is to decorate for the holidays especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Envisioning what my future home is going to be like is my new obsession and it is so fun putting together mood boards of my dream pieces. Who doesn’t love putting together your ultimate home and working towards that? I know I do 🙂

When Wayfair approached me to pick out my favorite Blogger picks for Thanksgiving on their site, I jumped at the chance with Thanksgiving cheer. I picked my five favorite things to inspire you to shop on Wayfair this holiday season!

Thankful for you all!

I chose this pillow because there is so much to be thankful for this year and in this moment. This pillow represents that and just adds so much joy to the room for this Thanksgiving season. 
I am really into plaid and pumpkins so when I saw them both together I just knew they were at the top of my Thanksgiving list from Wayfair. They add that extra Thanksgiving cheer to the room, which I love. 
I am a sports nut all year round, but football is definitely one of my favorites. It brings so many people together at one another’s houses. It creates such a community around it that this sign is a must have for me this holiday season. Go team go! 
Giving thanks is so important and this beautiful sign is the perfect reminder. It will go perfectly on any windowsill or mantel. I love the simplicity yet beautiful touch it adds to any room and it can be up all year round. 
Candles are such a great item to put you in the mood for the holiday season. Everyone seems to have a scent that they love and gives them all the feels of certain amazing holiday moments with loved ones. This candle is the perfect scent that can give you that reminder and I know gives me that too 🙂
