Serena & Lily home decor favorites

Serena & Lily is a brand that needs no introduction. I first discovered them 12 years ago while decorating my son’s nursery, and I’ve been a fan ever since. They reached out asking if I’d like a couple of pieces for the guest bedroom makeover I’ve been working on and of course, I immediately replied with a resounding heck ya! But I’m not stopping there. Today I’m sharing all my Serena & Lily home decor favorites including the new pieces that arrived, a tried and true lamp I’ve loved for years, and a few others on my wishlist.

Serena & Lily Alpaca Throw

I’ve been coveting this alpaca throw for a year and finally made it mine. When it arrived, I ripped open the box like a kid on Christmas morning and wrapped myself in its luxuriousness immediately. Side note, hands up if every time you think of an alpaca, this comes to mind.

Alpaca My Bags

Enough funny business, let’s get back to the guest bedroom. Upon “completion” — quotes because let’s face it, it’s never really complete — I loved the space, but of course my love of all things color faded, and I wanted to tone it down a bit. Story of my life. So I took some advice from Instagram and began playing with the bedding. Removing the playfulness from the dot pattern on the coverlet and adding in more sophistication with neutrals. Yes, the Serena & Lily alpaca throw is an investment piece, but alpaca wool is a durable, high-quality, luxury yarn that is soft and stands the test of time. The quality is extraordinary.

As you can see, the blanket adds that extra bit of softness and texture to the leather chair (it also comes in navy). If you’ve been on the fence, just know this blankie is all that and a bag of chips — worth every penny. I of course chose the most expensive alpaca throw Serena & Lily offers, but there is also the Milo Alpaca Throw which is half the price and comes in 6 color choices oh and this one is on sale (I love the fringy detail).

Here’s another look at the added texture of the throw. I’m loving the tone on tone for the bedding. What do you think of this new look? Was I successful in toning down the playfulness?

Below is a glimpse of the before. Similar, but not alike.

Bedroom lighting ideas. Find new bedroom light fixtures. Rounding up ceiling lights, table lamps, and floor lamps for a new guest bedroom makeover.

Comparing the two, I can clearly see that the before was entirely too busy for my everyday. Taking a closer look, I may move the portrait of the woman to a different wall. I love her, but she seems too front and center here.

Serena & Lily Flynn Single Wall Sconce

I’m obsessed with all lighting, and these textural wall sconces had to come to live in the guest bedroom. Their design is inspired by a vintage pharmacy lamp, but what drew me in and stole my heart was the wicker shade. They’re sleek, simple, and interesting yet a bit different from my normal Mid-Century Modern look and feel — I’m here for the change.

You may remember the old brass sconces. We had them in our former house, so they’ve been around the block and then some. It was time for a change. Here’s the before.

Nightstands

I’m still working on replacing the existing nightstands because I’m no longer loving that cheugy Mid-Century Modern look. There are a couple on the S&L site that might work though. The space is tight, and the trick will be to stay under 20″, so the Balboa Nightstand, coming in at 18″ wide, first caught my attention. But the wicker wall scone over the hand-wrapped rattan is just too much. Since this is the guest bedroom, it really doesn’t need drawers for storage. Maybe something like the Parisian Side Table would work better? Although the width is almost 23″ wide, so it might just be too wide. I feel like Goldilocks right now.

I like the idea above of the black table with the wicker, so the Reese Nightstand might be just what the doctor ordered. It has simple lines yet the cerused ebony finish gives it that extra shazam detail. It comes in at exactly 20″ wide, so it should fit, and even though storage is not needed in the guest room, this nightstand has 1 drawer for any essentials. PLUS it’ll be fabulous with the wicker sconces. Thank you for bearing with me while my mind makes design decisions. Now you know the inner workings.

Serena & Lily Cove Table Lamp

A couple of years ago I purchased the Cove Table Lamp, and it’s still a favorite today. The subtle nautical charm brings the outdoors in for a fresh look, and the matte ivory shells add incredible texture to your room. I can’t tell you how many guests have pet this thing. Even though it doesn’t look like it, this lamp is easy to clean. Just a few sprays of canned air does the trick.

Here’s a more up close and personal looksy at the shell detail. Would you pet it? It’s okay if you say you would.

Serena & Lily Claremont Floor Lamp

This sleek modern floor lamp pivots to just the right angle, and I would love for it to live behind the sofa in my TV room. This understated yet timeless light is on my list of home decor to buy.

Serena & Lily Mirrors

There are 2 mirrors at S&L that I particularly love. One is the Portola Mirror which was featured in my decorating with neutrals post.  When I purchased the Cove Table Lamp, I had to make the decision between it and this mirror. It was a tough decision. Made from small pieces of rattan, it adds gorgeous texture to any wall. But I also love the delicate details on the Lisbon Mirror. It’s handcrafted,  made of coconut beads in varying shapes, and it’s not until you give it an up-close and personal look that you see the beautiful artistry. She’s a showstopper that is high on my wishlist.

Seagrass Wrapped Glassware

Again I’m going to wax poetic over texture. These seagrass-wrapped highball glasses are stunners, and don’t forget the old-fashion glasses. These scream summer dinner party with friends. Simply add my Lime In The Coconut cocktail recipe. It’s the perfect boozy beverage. P.S. The seagrass is removable so these glasses easy to wash — ya, I read your mind. P.S.S. There’s also a matching pitcher, you know, in case you’d like to whip up some sangria instead.

Amazon Prime Day Must Have Home Decor Deals

Today ain’t no ordinary Monday. It’s Amazon Prime Day — two days out of the year that are filled with the best bargains. discounts, and deals. But shopping Prime Day can be overwhelming if you don’t know what you’re looking for.  That’s why I’m popping in really quick to share some must-have favorite home decor, gadgets, and appliances. Ready, set, shop!

Home Decor Favorites

Amazon Prime Day Must Have Home Decor Deals

Trinsic Faucet By Delta
All the Delta Faucets are 20% off upon checkout, but this is the Trinsic faucet and its modern look and feel are by far my favorite. The Touch2O and MagnaTite features are music to my ears. If you’re in the market for a new faucet, Amazon Prime Day is definitely the day to pick this beauty up.

Modern Minimalist Vase
If you’ve recently scrolled through Instagram or Pinterest, I can almost guarantee that you have seen this vase. Perfect addition to your shelfie.

Irregular Face Line Design Vase
This abstract design adds a bit of artistic flair to your vignette. Simply fill with some faux olive branches or favorite florals.

Faux Palm Tree
My quest for the best faux plants is real, and this artificial palm tree is definitely a winner. I’m also eyeing these indoor/outdoor cedar trees for a bit of added privacy on our back deck.

Black And White Stone Cutting Board
Tell me this would not make for the chicest charcuterie board. I love the marble stripes. Definitely a must-have for my next gathering.

Simple Bathroom Hook
A good, sturdy towel hook can be hard to find. This one by Delta Faucet comes in every finish from Champagne Bronze to Chrome to Matte Black.

Cotton Diamond Throw Blanket
A simple modern throw with a classic look and feel. This blankie would look perfect draped over a chair or sofa.

Abstract Face Vase
How adorable is this little vase? He’s quirky and weird, and I love him.

Gold Velvet Curtains
Instagram went crazy over these velvet curtains. I did too — so much so that I bought them for my front room and bedroom. They’re heavy in weight, pool nicely on the floor and are oh so soft. Plus they’re budget-friendly and come in 12 different colors.

Amazon Prime Day Must Have Home Decor Deals

Cotton Tea Towels
I’m obsessed with this set of simple tea towels. They’d be perfect in the kitchen or the bathroom.

 

Amazon Prime Day – Must Have Gadgets

Amazon Prime Day Must Have Gadget and Appliances Deals

The Perfect Ice – Countertop Ice Maker
This bad boy went viral on TikTok, and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it. You know when you go to a restaurant and they give you a soda filled with the perfect crunchable ice? I know, it’s irresistible, right? Well, now you can make it at home and enjoy it anytime.

Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer
Say goodbye to shaky videos with this stabilizer for your phone. This one is easy to install and the magnetic grip will hold it tight. Perfect for the TikTokker (like myself hint, hint in case The Boy is reading this) in your life.

Desktop Vacuum Cleaner
I’m gonna chalk this little gadget up to the “TikTok made me do it” excuse. Yup, I cannot resist this little crumb catcher…one shall live on my kitchen counter by the toaster and the other on my desk in my home office.

Shiatsu Foot Massager
You can make bet that this deep kneading machine is in my cart right now. If you want to improve your circulation, eliminate body fatigue, and improve sleep, get it now because it’s a Lightning Deal and only has 1 hour left.

Eero WiFi Whole House System
This smart home hub will blanket your home with WiFi up to 5,000 sq ft. I’ve had mine for a few years now and still love it. Here’s my full Eero review if you’re interested.

Smart Plug WiFi Outlet
The Boy bought these a few years back, and I’m not sure what we did without them. If you ever visit the house, you’ll hear us say, “Alexa, turn on bedroom lights”, or “Alexa, turn off evening lights”. You can also dim them as well. It’s the only way we turn on and off the lights – goodbye switches.

Rocketbook Fusion — The Planner for ADHDers
Up until I was diagnosed with Adult ADHD (thank you TikTok), I didn’t understand how anyone used a planner. I had a stack of them that I either misplaced, lost, or just plain old forgot to use…but they sure did look pretty. Then I found Rocketbook. It’s a reusable calendar, planner, and to-do list maker. Simply use the special pen and after you’re finished with a task, wipe it away with some water and the cleaning cloth.

Shark Robot Vacuum with Self Empty Base
Now that Comet lives here, daily vacuuming is necessary, and if I can automate it, even better. I’m a big fan of the Shark WandVac System (see it in action here) and my Shark upright vacuum, so this may come live at my home. Also, this steal of a deal is half the price of a Roomba.

Again I’m going to wax poetic over texture. These seagrass-wrapped highball glasses are stunners, and don’t forget the old-fashion glasses. These scream summer dinner party with friends. Simply add my Lime In The Coconut cocktail recipe. It’s the perfect boozy beverage. P.S. The seagrass is removable so these glasses easy to wash — ya, I read your mind. P.S.S. There’s also a matching pitcher, you know, in case you’d like to whip up some sangria instead.

Serena & Lily home decor favorites

Serena & Lily is a brand that needs no introduction. I first discovered them 12 years ago while decorating my son’s nursery, and I’ve been a fan ever since. They reached out asking if I’d like a couple of pieces for the guest bedroom makeover I’ve been working on and of course, I immediately replied with a resounding heck ya! But I’m not stopping there. Today I’m sharing all my Serena & Lily home decor favorites including the new pieces that arrived, a tried and true lamp I’ve loved for years, and a few others on my wishlist.

Serena & Lily Alpaca Throw

I’ve been coveting this alpaca throw for a year and finally made it mine. When it arrived, I ripped open the box like a kid on Christmas morning and wrapped myself in its luxuriousness immediately. Side note, hands up if every time you think of an alpaca, this comes to mind.

Alpaca My Bags

Enough funny business, let’s get back to the guest bedroom. Upon “completion” — quotes because let’s face it, it’s never really complete — I loved the space, but of course my love of all things color faded, and I wanted to tone it down a bit. Story of my life. So I took some advice from Instagram and began playing with the bedding. Removing the playfulness from the dot pattern on the coverlet and adding in more sophistication with neutrals. Yes, the Serena & Lily alpaca throw is an investment piece, but alpaca wool is a durable, high-quality, luxury yarn that is soft and stands the test of time. The quality is extraordinary.

As you can see, the blanket adds that extra bit of softness and texture to the leather chair (it also comes in navy). If you’ve been on the fence, just know this blankie is all that and a bag of chips — worth every penny. I of course chose the most expensive alpaca throw Serena & Lily offers, but there is also the Milo Alpaca Throw which is half the price and comes in 6 color choices oh and this one is on sale (I love the fringy detail).

Serena & Lily home decor favorites

Here’s another look at the added texture of the throw. I’m loving the tone on tone for the bedding. What do you think of this new look? Was I successful in toning down the playfulness?

Comparing the two, I can clearly see that the before was entirely too busy for my everyday. Taking a closer look, I may move the portrait of the woman to a different wall. I love her, but she seems too front and center here.

Serena & Lily Flynn Single Wall Sconce

I’m obsessed with all lighting, and these textural wall sconces had to come to live in the guest bedroom. Their design is inspired by a vintage pharmacy lamp, but what drew me in and stole my heart was the wicker shade. They’re sleek, simple, and interesting yet a bit different from my normal Mid-Century Modern look and feel — I’m here for the change.

You may remember the old brass sconces. We had them in our former house, so they’ve been around the block and then some. It was time for a change. Here’s the before.

Serena & Lily home decor favorites

Nightstands

I’m still working on replacing the existing nightstands because I’m no longer loving that cheugy Mid-Century Modern look. There are a couple on the S&L site that might work though. The space is tight, and the trick will be to stay under 20″, so the Balboa Nightstand, coming in at 18″ wide, first caught my attention. But the wicker wall scone over the hand-wrapped rattan is just too much. Since this is the guest bedroom, it really doesn’t need drawers for storage. Maybe something like the Parisian Side Table would work better? Although the width is almost 23″ wide, so it might just be too wide. I feel like Goldilocks right now.

I like the idea above of the black table with the wicker, so the Reese Nightstand might be just what the doctor ordered. It has simple lines yet the cerused ebony finish gives it that extra shazam detail. It comes in at exactly 20″ wide, so it should fit, and even though storage is not needed in the guest room, this nightstand has 1 drawer for any essentials. PLUS it’ll be fabulous with the wicker sconces. Thank you for bearing with me while my mind makes design decisions. Now you know the inner workings.

Serena & Lily Cove Table Lamp

A couple of years ago I purchased the Cove Table Lamp, and it’s still a favorite today. The subtle nautical charm brings the outdoors in for a fresh look, and the matte ivory shells add incredible texture to your room. I can’t tell you how many guests have pet this thing. Even though it doesn’t look like it, this lamp is easy to clean. Just a few sprays of canned air does the trick.

Here’s a more up close and personal looksy at the shell detail. Would you pet it? It’s okay if you say you would.

Serena & Lily Claremont Floor Lamp

This sleek modern floor lamp pivots to just the right angle, and I would love for it to live behind the sofa in my TV room. This understated yet timeless light is on my list of home decor to buy.

Serena & Lily Mirrors

There are 2 mirrors at S&L that I particularly love. One is the Portola Mirror which was featured in my decorating with neutrals post.  When I purchased the Cove Table Lamp, I had to make the decision between it and this mirror. It was a tough decision. Made from small pieces of rattan, it adds gorgeous texture to any wall. But I also love the delicate details on the Lisbon Mirror. It’s handcrafted,  made of coconut beads in varying shapes, and it’s not until you give it an up-close and personal look that you see the beautiful artistry. She’s a showstopper that is high on my wishlist.

Seagrass Wrapped Glassware

Again I’m going to wax poetic over texture. These seagrass-wrapped highball glasses are stunners, and don’t forget the old-fashion glasses. These scream summer dinner party with friends. Simply add my Lime In The Coconut cocktail recipe. It’s the perfect boozy beverage. P.S. The seagrass is removable so these glasses easy to wash — ya, I read your mind. P.S.S.

What Is Cheugy Home Decor

Jun 4, 2021

amazzee.com - over 100 amazing items!

What is Cheugy Home Decor?

Gen Z is at it again. They declared skinny jeans out of style, and now they’re calling out our cheugy home decor. Wait, are you speaking English? How do I know if my home decor is cheugy? And what does that even mean? First things first, let’s make sure we are pronouncing it correctly.

Lesson 1. Cheugy sounds like chew-gee and rhymes with boogie — now that we’re are saying it correctly, let’s define the meaning.

Lesson 2. Cheug – a person who follows out-of-date trends…basic. If you love chevron, you might be a cheug.

What is Cheugy Home Decor?

Now, before you real mad like you did with the skinny jeans, let me state for the record, although cheugy is a Gen Z word, they’re not slamming the Millennials’ decorating taste. Cheugy home decor is just cheugy. Think of texting a friend a picture and asking, “Is this chair cheugy?” She wants to know, is it a boring chair? A basic chair? Should she style that corner with a different chair?

Lesson 3. Can things other than home decor be cheugy? Oh ya. I shed a few tears when I heard my Double G belt was basic. But don’t worry, Imma still rock that thing. Cheugy or not, don’t care. Other things that are considered cheugy: Herbal Essence shampoo, Ugg boots, Girlboss mugs, promposals, gender reveals, anything Bath & Body Works, and Lush bath bombs. Oh and Noah Centamayo…he’s a cheug. Sorry no sorry Peter Kavinsky.

Disclaimer: This is a tongue-in-cheek post on trends. Don’t get mad…just giggle with me. 

Examples of Cheugy Home Decor

Word Art Quotes are Cheugy

Let’s start off with the obvious — any motivational, inspiring, or punny Pinterest quotes hung or painted on your walls or in pillow form.

What is Cheugy Home Decor?

Why is this considered obvious? Easy, Reddit declared all things Live, Laugh, Love as cheugy home decor 2 years ago, and I’m 100% onboard. I’m also going to include Rosé All Day, It’s Wine Time, and these Oh Kale Yes! towels.

What is Cheugy Home Decor?

Shiplap is Cheugy

Yup, I said it. Shiplap has been canceled. There are so many other ways to bring texture into your home. Look at plaster, grasscloth, rattan…ANYTHING BUT SHIPLAP. Even Joanna agrees.

Rae Dunn pottery is Cheugy

Do you keep your dog treats in a “PUPPY LOVE” jar? Do you drink your morning beverage from a mug that says, TEA, MR. or MRS., or maybe it says KISSES? This is the decor that will one day haunt thrift stores, and the font alone should give you nightmares.

What is Cheugy Home Decor?

LED Room Lights

TikTok blew up the LED strip lights, and yes, they’re kinda cute, but please don’t light up your entire kitchen with this mood lighting. Instead, use it to light up your pantry or install it as under-mount cabinet lighting.

LED Strip Lights As Room Decor

Goodbye Mid-Century Modern Furniture

It’s time to rest our mid-century modern furniture. The clean lines will forever be classic, and trust me, MCM will return. But I think we can all agree that the trend went a little overboard. Look beyond Jens Rison and try blending new and custom with your vintage. Side note, buying vintage decor is not cheugy, it’s sustainable and saves the planet.

Shut The Barn Door

Unless you live in an actual farmhouse, you do not need a sliding barn door. Look for alternatives like French doors, pocket doors, or take a tip from my recent post, Home Decor on a Budget, and paint your door.

Brushed Nickel is Cheugy Home Decor

Brushed nickel has yet to make a comeback, but if you love silver, turn your attention to chrome. You can also go for a more eclectic look and mix your brushed nickel with chrome, brass, and gold.

Louis Vuitton, Gucci, or Chanel Artwork and Wall Decals

This Louis Vuitton print might just be the epitome of cheugy home decor. Enough said.

Louis Vuitton Wall Decals are is Cheugy

Unless you’re Nikki Minaj, you cannot pull this look off.

I lied…even Nikki isn’t cool enough to pull off cheugy decor like this.

Before I wrap this silly little post up, this needs to be repeated — cheugy may sound like more of an insult than a compliment, but keep in mind, it’s just a highly subjective, made-up word to declare something cool or uncool. In fact, one could argue that the word cheugy itself is now cheugy…and maybe, just maybe, this blog post is cheugy.

But tonight, when your kid looks at you and says, “Hayley told me to change out of my favorite pair of skinny jeans because they were cheugy”, you can give her a hug and say, “Hayley needs to respect the drip because your jeans hit different”. You can also tell her that, “barrel leg jeans live rent-free in your mind”.

Beautiful Distractions No. 30

May 25, 2021

amazzee.com - over 100 amazing items!

Have you had an onslaught of, “let’s get together” phone calls? My friends are fully vaccinated, the weather is gorgeous, and the kids are back into sports — travel soccer, gymnastics, the whole shebang. A slower re-entry into normal life might have been more welcomed rather than jumping in head first, but I’m here for it. I’ve missed being on the receiving end of a hug. Have you had this conversation yet?

Me: “I’m vaccinated!”
Friend (or stranger in many cases): “OMG, so am I!”

Every single time this conversation is followed by an overwhelming joy of ripping off the mask and a hug even if we don’t know each other. The whole experience has been pretty awesome.

Coachlite Roller Skating Rink in Roselle, IL

My first major outing was a roller skating party at the Coachlite roller rink. Even though it was a private party with my friend Neon Fringey, we still wore masks, but it was such a joy to be with people! And lemme tell you, skating was a lot harder than it was in the 4th grade. The first 30 minutes consisted of me flailing my arms about and praying not to break my butt. Soon I found my balance, and Carrie gave me the advice of shifting my weight from side to side — no walking with the skates. Crushed it.

I had the pleasure to sit down with my friend Neil from Universal Furniture and chat all things social media…including a few top secret tips I rarely share. Listen to the podcast.

TikTok introduced me to this little gadget for my car that I didn’t know I needed until I saw how genius it was.

I’ve almost finished Girls Weekend, and oh my that book keeps you guessing. Still not as good as The Guest List, but all in all a great read.

Whit Two Colorful Stripe Pajamas

These colorful jammies are giving me all the summer vibes.

This floral pattern grasscloth wallpaper caught my eye, and I think it needs to live in the stairway.

Every visit to High Point Market, I drool over this $6,000 snake mirror. BUT, are you ready for this, I found a dupe for a fraction of the price!

I’ve been obsessing over this colorful cardigan and hoping it stays in stock while I’m over here saving my pennies. I hate that I have champagne taste.

Speaking of bubbles, did you know you can purchase a Moet & Chandon Champagne vending machine? Srsly, who doesn’t need this thing in their life?

Moët & Chandon Champagne Vending Machine

The summer weather has arrived and the humidity has been doing a number on my fine, thin hair. The curls and frizz, it goes crazy. Unless I get a Keratin treatment, I pretty much wear a baseball cap 24/7. Right now I’m digging this sardine trucker hat. Yes, I said sardine, and yes it’s adorable.

I was recently discovered Alex Eagle. Her home tour is to die for, and she also has a fashion line. The Alex Eagle Sporting Club line drops small limited edition collections that sell out in a matter of days. I’ve been coveting these green sneakers and the MODERNISM tee.

Alex Eagle Modernism Tshirt

She legit takes French girl chic to another level…oh and this boss wrote a book as well.

If you haven’t heard the news, we adopted a dog! His name is Comet. Now that I have gotten used to the hair and the smell, I’ve decided he can stay LOL. I discovered the Aeris aair lite air purifier, and it’s helped so much with the smelly dog odor. It’s kinda pricy, but if you use the coupon code HIPSTERS10 you’ll get 10% off. Also, finding a nice-looking dog bed hasn’t been easy. I was eyeing this one, but alas, it’s sold out. Do you have any recommendations?

Have you ever had a Reiki Healing Session? My friend Lisa is a Reiki Master and also practices energy medicine and sound healing. I won’t go into details here, but my first session with Lisa was incredible. I felt relaxed, freer, a bit tired, and zero stress. Sessions with Lisa are virtual and held over zoom. You just need to find a quiet, comfy spot. Let me know if you’re curious about Reiki because I’d be happy to share my experience.

Bedroom Lighting Guide – 50 Best Picks

May 20, 2021

amazzee.com - over 100 amazing items!

Bedroom lighting ideas. Find new bedroom light fixtures. Rounding up ceiling lights, table lamps, and floor lamps for a new guest bedroom makeover.

When it comes to decorating a room, lighting is everything. So to elevate the design in guest bedroom makeover, I headed over to my one-stop-shop for lighting and more, Lamps Plus. They make shopping for lighting easy. The sconces over the small nightstands saved valuable space, so those stayed original to the room, but the rest of the light fixtures are new. Below are all the options that caught my eye: ceiling lighting, flush mount lighting, lamps for the dresser, and floor lamps. Let’s dig into this bedroom lighting guide for some beautiful ideas.

Bedroom Ceiling Light Fixtures

Although I’d love to install pendant lighting over the bed, the room is just too small. Any guest would most definitely bonk their head. While scoping out flush mount lighting, I stumbled upon semi-flush mount lighting. Hmmmmm, this could be the fix I need.

  1. 15″ Wide Angle Brass Ceiling Lamp
  2. White Flower Ceiling Lamp
  3. Key West Flush Mount Light
  4. 20″ Semi-Flush Wide Ceiling Lamp
  5. 14″ Black and Brass Ceiling Light
  6. Scalloped Shade Ceiling Light
  7. Amber Detailed Ceiling Light
  8. Cross Bar Brass Ceiling Light
  9. Black Graphite Bronze Flush Mount
  10. Brass Band Ceiling Lamp
  11. Scalloped Brass Flush Mount Light
  12. Black Cube Ceiling Light
  13. Gold Wired Ceiling Rug
  14. Antique Gold Leaf Semi-Flush Mount
  15. Brass Star Ceiling Light

Ultimately, this is what I chose for the lighting over the bed…are you ready for this because it’s literally the first time I’ve shown this much of the space! EEEEEK, so exciting! I say that because I used a bold color palette and really pushed myself to design outside of the box.

The Boy thought installing this ceiling light would be a rough ride, but he only got poked by a leaf once, so Imma call that a win! Here’s the quick video detailing how we swapped this beauty out for the boring old boob light. If electrical intimidates you, hopefully, this will convince you to give it a go and not get zapped.

More Bedroom Lighting Ideas — Table Lamps

While shopping for the ceiling light fixtures, I got a few more bedroom lighting ideas. Yes, a beautiful table lamp on the dresser was a no-brainer, but a floor lamp could be layered into the mix as well. In other words, you can never have too much lighting. It’s the sparkly jewelry of home decor!

Now let’s really start to layer lighting by adding in a floor lamp. Here are a few that caught my eye.

The distressed silver leaf is even better in person. And yes, you read that right, it’s silver! Not brass or gold…again pushing myself out of the norm.

Skinny Jeans Are Out – 9 Alternative Styles

Skinny Jeans are Out of Style - 9 Alternatives to skinny jeans

Hold up, are skinny jeans out of style? According to TikTok, yes, and Gen Z has drawn a line in the sand with the side part hairstyle, the excessive use of the laughing face emoji and your beloved skinny jeans are canceled. So if you are presently wearing said skinny jeans with a side part, which is clearly not the superior hairstyle, this post is for you.

Skinny Jeans are Out of Style - 9 Alternatives to skinny jeans

Fashion trends come and go, and while skinny jeans were a revelation in the mid-2000s, I’m here to tell you, skinny jeans are officially dead. If you’re over 30, you lived through the rise and fall of baggy jeans and the departure of extra low-rise jeans…which rumor has it, they have been threatening to make a comeback. Dear Sweet Baby Jesus, please, for the love of all the fashion gods, never bring back whale tails and jeans. Not even Britney Spears can rock those anymore.

If you’re feeling out of the loop, you may be asking yourself, if skinny jeans are out, what’s in? Don’t worry, I’m here to keep you cool.

9 Alternatives To Skinny Jeans

1. Wide-Leg Jeans

My prayers have been heard. Personally, I’ve always been a fan of wide-leg jeans. The cut of the wide-leg can be high rise, mid-rise, crop, or full, and they are straight through the hip and thigh. I pair mine with a cropped sweater or slim-fit white tee and almost always a belt.

HIGH RISE PEATED WIDE LEG JEANS

WIDE LEG IN BLACK WASH

HIGH RISE WIDE LEG JEANS IN OLIVE

(if you read Beautiful Distractions No. 29, you saw these greenies in yellow)

9 Alternatives to replace your skinny jeans

2. Baggy Loose Fit 90’s Jeans

Yes, you read that right, those loose fit 90’s jeans are back! All this gal needs is a flannel shirt, Doc Martins, and some Pearl Jam…then all would be right in the world.

LOOSE FIT 90’s JEANS

CRISS CROSS BAGGY JEANS (these give me all the Z.Cavaricci feels)

BALLOON JEANS IN HEWES WASH

HIGH RISE DISTRESSED MOM JEANS

3. Barrel Leg Jeans

For me to get on board with these, I  think I’m going to have to try them in-store. I have big enough hips from having babies that I’m unsure if I want to accentuate that part of my body even more. A barrel cut is going to be more fitted at the waist but roomy in the hip and thigh with a tapered leg. I’m eyeing these high-rise barrel jeans because they have almost a boyfriend fit to them.

HIGH RISE BARREL JEANS

CARVED TROUSER BALLOON PANTS

BAGGY TAPERED JEANS

BARREL LEG BALLOON JEANS

(take special notice of those loafers…we’re gonna talk about that in a moment)

9 Alternatives to replace your skinny jeans

4. Tapered Leg Jeans

If you’re not quite ready to burn your skinny jeans (which I’m not saying you should), try on the tapered leg jeans. They gradually narrow towards the ankle, and have that same inverted shape. It’s kind of a skinny jean and straight-leg in one.

CROPPED TAPERED LEG JEANS (a bit pricy, but super cute)

THE BRINKLEY JEANS

TAPERED LEG JEANS WITH TIE WAIST

5. Bootcut Jeans

Yes, bootcut jeans are trending, but that does not mean you can dig your old hip-huggers out. The bootcut jeans of 2021 have a higher waistline (again, thank you Sweet Baby Jesus), a slimmer cut, and less of a flared ankle. Bootcut is definitely a trending denim style you’re gonna see a lot of this year. They look super chic paired with an ankle boot.

MID RISE BOOT CUT JEANS

6. Flare Leg

These are not your 70s style flare…well unless you’re shopping Gucci they aren’t. Slim fit through the thigh with a slight flare at the knee. I’m loving these high rise destructed vintage flare jeans.

ICON FLARE JEANS

FLARE CROP JEANS IN MID GRAY WASH

VINTAGE FLARE JEANS

FRAYED HEM FLARE JEANS

7. Boyfriend Jeans

Similar to the straight leg jeans, but more relaxed through the hip and thigh. I love boyfriend jeans. They are soft, comfy, and the loose fit allows for movement, but buyers beware. Since they are slightly slouchy and oversized, you can quickly go from laid-back cool girl vibes to frumpy and ill-fitting.

DESTRUCTED HIGH WAIST BOYFRIEND JEANS

THE TOMCAT JEANS

DISTRESSED SLOUCHY BOYFRIEND JEANS

BORROWED BOYFRIEND JEANS

9 Alternatives to replace your skinny jeans

8. Straight Leg Jeans

Fitted through the hip and thigh, with a straight leg down to the ankle. Straight-leg jeans hug you in all the right places and give off those old-school vibes. They’re a great basic that rarely goes out of style. In fact, I still have my favorite pair tucked away in the maybe they’ll fit again drawer. A pair of Chip & Pepper jeans…RIP…make my butt look so good. Because all the celebs wore them, hunting a pair down was a feat. They were harder to find than a Cabbage Patch Kid doll in the 80s. I’m on a quest to find a pair that fit as well, only for my post-baby body.

TOMBOY STRAIGHT LEG JEANS

9. Cropped Jeans

It should be said that almost all of these skinny jeans alternatives can be worn in a cropped style. However, I’m going to throw another curveball at you. Try wearing your cropped jeans with socks and a pair of loafers. And no, I’m not talking about those no-show socks; I’m talking a pop of color or something with a bit of an ankle. Think back to the penny loafers of the late 80’s.

In short, skinny jeans are officially the new mom jeans. We hear you loud and clear Gen Z. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of skinny jeans, so when I discovered they had been declared old and uncool, my breakup with the skin-tight denim was swift and quick. It also might have been easier because I’ve been wearing sweatpants for the last 365 days. And now that I foresee a post-pandemic return to everyday life sans sweatpants, I promise to rotate a few of these different styles into my wardrobe. Will you?

Four Hands Modern Furniture Company

It has been a hot minute since I share a Beautiful Distractions. This is a super quick read with loads of YouTube videos and packed with goodies. Grab a quick cup of coffee and start to scroll!

During a Clubhouse chat, I discovered a new furniture company – Four Hands – and I’m obsessed! Check out their latest lookbook of drop-dead gorgeous furniture. I have been redesigning my living room, and in the latest rendition, the chair, sofa, and etagere pictured below were included in the mood boards.

Four Hands Modern Furniture Company

I purchased Girl Talk — Feed the Animals mashup album, and it’s been blaring on a loop in my office when I’m not having to focus. You can stream it for free on Amazon. It bumps.

If you’re looking to jazz up your daily workout, try this number on for size. Don’t be fooled, Katia Pryce of Dancebody may look sweet and adorable, but she will kick your booty. At first glance, you’re like oh girl I got you, and then suddenly you’re muscles are legit screaming on the inside. Katia works parts you never knew you had.

Safety check!!! Wanna know if your email address or phone number has been breached? I entered my personal email address and found it was part of 18 data breaches! It’s also been published on a publically-facing server and waiting to be copied, pasted, and hacked. Thank goodness my cell was safe.

Have you binge-watched The Flight Attendant? EMERGERD, bonkers good! At the beginning of every episode, I say, “Just one”, but suddenly it’s 3 am. It’s on HBOMax which we rarely watch, but wow, definitely worth the subscription. Kaley Cuoco wakes up in a hotel room with a dead man and has no idea what happened. The twists, the turns, this show had me on the edge of my seat.

Speaking of good TV, after the intensity of The Flight Attendant, I decided to switch gears and watch something a bit more fluffy. After perusing Netflix, I chose Ginny and Georgia…uhhhh, ya, don’t be fooled by the trailer. That show is sooooooooo not fluffy. Vulture compared it to Guy Fieri’s Trash Can Nachos…delicious, over-the-top, and stuffed with things you probably didn’t need, but you’re happy they’re there. It’s quite possibly the most perfect description of Ginny and Georgia. I’m ready to lock my children in the basement so they are protected from all the things.

Have you checked out Sarah from Room For Tuesday’s new online home decor shop? She has amazing style, and now you can bring her decor home. I’m obsessed with this bouquet of faux hydrangeas and all of the pillows.

Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift? The complete gift guide went live last week.

Have you heard of Lofi Girl? It’s is a super chill YouTube channel with the most perfect background music to work or relax to. And lemme tell you, it has helped this ADHD gal stay focused during the day. Work. Chill. Sleep. Repeat. Listen to the first study session today while you’re working and tell me I’m wrong. I guarantee you’ll never listen to anything else while trying to focus.

Oh, and for the hardcore Lofi Girl fans, there’s a 1-foot tall figurine you can buy to be your peaceful companion. That is if you have $120 to burn.

These yellow wide-leg pants have been in heavy rotation. Literally obsessed, and I think I might need them in every color. Get em while they’re hot because they are presently 50% off if you use the code SUNNY at checkout. BTDubs, they run true to size, if not slightly on the larger size.

Vaccines are on the horizon and quarantine is coming to an end. I know this because, I’m no longer shopping for loungewear. This wide collar knit sweater is also high on my wishlist, and how cute would it look with those yellow pants up top.

Wide Collar Wool Sweater

Thanks to those little sample sizes that Sephora gives you, I’ve added this cleanser to my nightly routine, and my skin has a glow about it. The first time around, I thought this was a double cleansing balm, but after much googling, I only saw a couple of articles stating double cleanse only if you start to break out. So far my skin is clear, but if you’ve tried Farmacy Green Clean, I’d love for you to share your routine in the comments.

Imma leave you with this killer performance by Miley Cyrus on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert. Her rendition of Mazzy Star’s classic Fade Into You (in a tiny bedroom) blew me away. I’ve never heard a cover that comes close to topping the original. Fuzzy cowboy tip of the hat to you Miss Cyrus. When Miley shed her good-girl image in 5 seconds flat, live on MTV, many chose not to take her music seriously, but take notice and place credit where credit is due. Miley m’lady, I’m a fan, and please keep the punk rock Olivia Newton-John vibes coming. I’m here for your 80’s flex, mullet, and all. PS, if you still have 15 minutes to spare, play the NPR Butcher Brown Tiny Desk Concert. It’s a banger.

Best Faux Olive Trees — Home Decor

Best Faux Olive Trees Home Decor

The news is in. Faux greenery is no longer a faux pas. I’ve written a couple of guides on where to buy faux plants that have been wildly popular, but one link, in particular, is clicked on. Let’s find the best faux olive trees.

Shop The Trending Best Faux Olive Trees

Faux Olive Tree

Yes, I’ve finally stopped ranting about Pinterest because the grass is greener on the decor side of blogging. Today I’m sharing the complete guide to the best faux olive trees. This artificial tree is trending hard with interior designers and a roundup always makes your design life easier. I purchased this one for my home office, and every time I post it, I’m asked what’s the name of the plant in the corner? Is it real or fake? But first thing’s first:

Where I Buy The Best Faux Plants

Before I leap into my favorite faux olive trees, here is a quick reference for where I find the best faux plants in general.

Afloral

Amazon

CB2

Frontgate

Michaels

Nearly Natural

Pottery Barn

Target

West Elm

World Market

Best Faux Olive Trees Home Decor

  1. Faux Potted Olive Tree
  2. Large 6.5′ Faux Olive Tree
  3. Smaller Faux Olive Topiary
  4. Artificial Olive Tree
  5. Faux Olive Tree (basket not included)
  6. 18″ Olive Tree with Vase (Set of 2!)
  7. 5′ Olive Topiary Artificial Faux Tree

Artificial trees can get pricy based on quality and size. A 3′-4′ real olive tree will run you around $100. Because real plants silently scream when I near them, I might as well flush that hundo down the toilet. Routinely watering greenery is not my forte…I blame the ADHD…I forget.

6′ Tall Artificial Olive Tree

The only solution to my green thumb woes is to purchase faux plants. Looking back to when I first started sharing home decor, I repetitively heard, “faux plants are tacky”. Ummm, rude. When working with Decorist on the front room design, I was told no faux palm trees…that rule was not followed, and when they reviewed the imagery, didn’t notice.

This faux olive tree might be my favorite. Sparse and minimal.
