New Year, New Me, New Space with Wayfair

*This post was sponsored by Wayfair.*

“Creating a sanctuary in my bedroom as well as redoing my office space to feel more calming for 2020. Take down clutter.” ~Iced Tea & Top Knots

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

~Maya Angelou 

Change can be scary, but with a new year, change can feel amazing. At the end of last year, I knew that I wanted to change the space I was living in mainly my room and my office space. 

What made me want to make the change was that my space was feeling cluttered and I was not liking that. So 2020, rolled around and my resolution was clear, New Me meant New Space. 

Wayfair was the perfect company to help make my space feel like the new again. They helped me create the sanctuary I wanted for my bedroom and the creative space I needed in my office. I took down the clutter and created the calm and creative I needed. 

Please check out the before and afters for both spaces thanks to Wayfair and stay tuned for another piece on creating a new space next week 🙂

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.

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 🙂
