I literally just moved into a new place a week ago, so I can fill you in on all of my latest purchases. I like an eclectic home, filled with lots of color, which means I have zero problem mixing and matching styles and colors that you wouldn’t necessarily think go together. Here are a few things that I had to have when moving into my new space, in no particular order.
It's very important that my place smells good. There's nothing worse than walking into someone’s personal space and thinking that there must be a pile of dirty laundry stashed somewhere not too far away. That being said, I cannot live without Le Labo’s Santal candle or home fragrance. It’s a game changer and highly addictive, so be careful because it’s a habit you likely won’t be able to kick. Oh, and did I mention you can customize all of your fragrances? Thieves, beware.
I LOVE a cowhide rug. I think they work in almost any space, regardless of your aesthetic. I just got a beautiful one and layered it over a great jute rug for added texture. There is this fantastic ramshackled house on La Brea just above Fountain Ave in LA that has a plethora of amazing hides ranging in size, style and price. If you’re in the market, you must check this place out. You can’t miss it. It’s on the west side of the street and the owner, Johnny, is a character.
In my opinion, the best way to add personality to your living space is to pick up bits and pieces when you travel. Every city, state, country, continent has something that it’s known for so why not bring one of those unique memories home with you? My mom was just traveling through India and bought me the most beautiful tapestry at a street market. I’m currently having a rod added to it so I can hang it on my entry wall.
The Apartment by The Line is the greatest place on earth! You can literally find anything and everything cool that you would ever want / need for your home. So many amazing trinkets to fill your bookshelves, coffee tables, bathroom counters; you name it, they have it. One of my favorite finds is this oversized paperclip (link below) that you can use to mark pages in any of their beautiful coffee table books.
