Modern Chic Home Decor under $25

Guess where I spent some time this weekend on? AMAZON. That’s right.
Who doesn’t love good deals and fast shipping. Well I do. A lot.
I usually spend every second day checking out deals on Amazon.

And basically, I order on amazon weekly. Mostly decorative items.

Keeping all my finds? Nope!

I basically change my decor a lot around the house. Not only seasonal, but monthly. It’s fun and what’s fun shouldn’t be too hard on your budget, right? What I don’t like anymore or needs a change goes on Craigslist or Facebook marketplace. An absolute great way to exchange decor, besides Amazon.

Below You can find links to (6) Modern Chic Home Decor under $25.00 that is easy accessible on Amazon.

Cozy Fall Fashion & Interior

Cozy up with my Cozy Fall Fashion and Interior “Hint & Highlights“. ♥

It’s the time o the year and as much as I am looking forward to this crazy cool Christmas Party coming Saturday, I am also really looking forward to cozy up and snuggle with my man on Sunday at home. There is nothing more in the world I can wish for (and maybe a new pair of leopard boots!).

Cozy Fall Fashion and Interior 2018.001

  1. Some Blackberry Absinthe Diffuser are always handy – I personally like them in the bathroom. Make sure you turn the wood reeds upside-down about every week. That’s how you keep the smell flowing.
  2. This hairband is just so awesome that I bought already multiple colours.. It drys super quick, looks great and cute with its little bowtie AND it does what its meant to be for – it keeps your hair out of your face.
  3. If you haven’t noticed yet, The Cross also offers jewelry besides Furniture and other cute little Home Decor items. My current fave is this adorable necklace with the Double Hearts. So romantic.
  4. The Tibetan Lamb White Pillow is always on my list and HAS to be mentioned in this article – coziness overload.
  5. I love Vintage and so do I love this Vintage Cotton Pajamas. 100% Cotton and currently on Sale at Nordstrom.
  6. Cozy up under this blanket with your sweetheart. Maybe some popcorn and a good movie, too? 100% Cotton and only $29.99 from Ikea.
  7. It does not only look good in your hand it also delivers hot chocolate straight to your mouth – if you want to. This real classy mug is 22K Gold for only $13.99 on sale at The Bay.
  8. When I saw these the other day I couldn’t even decide which colour my favourite is. So I had to leave and think about it before I’d buy more then one pair. Those pom pom slippers are just adorable, cute and super comfy staying at home for some snuggle time.
  9. One hot chocolate (I cannot drink coffee – not handling coffin real well) and one Croissant please. 😉 Order some hot stuff from your babe this weekend from this handy tray. What up?
  10. Last but not least – have the right setting for the cozy day and night time with your darling. Those Christa Tealight Holders will brighten up your night, but just as much as you need it to….

Happy Friday and a great start into the week. ♥

Pillow Party – 10 Modern Accent Pillows

Wanna cozy up but can’t find the right accent pillow? Try stepping back from the game and ask yourself a couple questions as like – Do you love patter? Which fabric do you like? Have you thought of the colour you’d like to bring into your home / room?
With even some answers to those questions it’s much better going shopping and not getting drowned in too many possibilities. (Because there are THOUSANDS of possibilities!!).

As promised, please find below my favourite pillow pieces from this season. (If you haven’t know yet, I am a big Pillow-Person-Oh-Hell-yes* Girl)

Cozy up with 10 Modern Accent Pillows that are out there in the world waiting for you:

Pillow Party - Fav Pillows - website.001

  1. For those who love Pattern: Give your space a little “WOW” with those cute 18″x12″ Leopard Accent Pillows from CB2 (don’t be shy!)
  2. Pier 1 has that cute fuzzy pillow in oversized 24″x24″ with an adorable pattern for only $39.95
  3. Round up your design with those Mini fur round Pillows from Westelm.
  4. Love the Lily Pillow from EQ3. Modern & great fall colours.
  5. For only $39.00 you’d get the 20×20 Accent Pillow from Urbanbarn to brighten up your space.
  6. Last but not least my favourite Izzy pillow from CB2 that is made out of Leather (one side) and 100% Cotton velvet. (I have purchased this one for the Squamish House Entry Way – first accent that won’t be forgotten on top of the Natural Wood Bench. Hallelujah!  Hint: Recognize how the shape of the Bench slats are to be found in the leather front side of the pillow?…SO GOOD!
    What an entrance!)

Thank you for checking in. Happy & Cozy start into the week.

Pillow Fight in the Guest Bedroom

One Bed? = Many pillows.
That’s a simple conclusion – in my mind.
Thats exactly what I am thinking of when it comes to home decoration and design for any Bedroom. And so typically as it is, between man and women – my boyfriend imagines something else: “Less pillows. They aren’t useful! Why do we need so many Pillows?” .. Why being always so practical, and who said that decorative pillows are’t useful… (pillow fight?)

Despite of whats everyones preference, …

how many pillows are actually suppose to be on a bed?

And aren’t pillows just – pillows? Clearly not! Besides different texture and colours, there are different variation of pillows – pls find below my list of pillows that are (luckily) existing in this world:

So, how many pillows are suppose to be on a bed? Simply ,it’s the matter of the size of the bed. But there is no real rule that has to be lived by to make your bed cozy and beautiful, even though I have my own 5 little rules.
Please see below & enjoy my

5 *pillow-recommendations*:

  1. TWIN Bed:
     Starting with the smallest size of the standard beds – the twin bed. I’d recommend not more then (1) Regular Sleeping Pillow, (1) Standard Sham Pillow and (1) 18″ Square Decorative Pillow. The picture below is showing a twin bed with (2) 18″ Square Decorative Pillows, which I feel like is overloaded (and thats ME saying too many pillows!!??!!), but sometimes is less more.

    apartment-bed-bedroom-1501272
    Twin Bed with too many pillows can look overwhelming.

     

  2. Full / Double Bed:
    A double bed shall have (2) Standard Sleeping Pillows with (2) Standard Shams and to finish up the decorative part (2) 18″ Square Pillows. The 18″ Square decorative pillows can be easily replaced by (1) Bolster Pillow (if Mr. Right prefers less pillows –  5 pillows might sound better then 6 in total…).

    double-bed-1215004_1920
    This Double Bed is looking quote empty with only (2) Sleeping Pillows.
     
  3. Queen Bed:(2) Sleeping Pillows, (2) Shams and (2) 20″ Square Decorative Pillows. With that little extra inch on each pillow, the size of the queen will be much more noticeable. Also, feel free to add (2) Euro Sham Pillows – Bigger Bed, bigger (and more) pillows.Feel free to replace the (2) Decorative Pillows with (1) Bolster, but make sure you pick a LARGE Bolster in this case. Going with smaller Decorative Pillows/Bolsters, would make the bed look smaller then it is.

    Simple and clean lines.
  4. King Bed:The King Size Bed is my absolute favourite size of bed. Not only because it gives me the opportunity for lots of pillows, but also because I have lots space to sleep and move around (I am tall, active and need my space when it comes to stressful days / nightmare times). I’d recommend using besides the (2) King Sleeping Pillows (Make sure you buy the King Size Sleeping Pillows AND the King Size Cover!!), (2) King Shams and (2) 20″ Square Decorative Pillows. Now the fun begins, because you can easily add (3) Euro Sham Pillows to that Bed, too. Unstoppable. Incredible.
    bed-pillow-arrangement-post-by-queen-bed-pillow-arrangement
    Another interesting combination with (2) Bolster and (2) Square Pillows (thecolumbia.club)
  5. Daybed:A Daybed does not have to be just a daybed, sitting in the corner of a room. If it is an additional bed in your office, barely used? Take it as an advantage. Make it cozy and inviting. I’d recommend using (2) Sleeping Pillows and (3) Euro Shams. If more space allows (and the husband) use (2) Standard Shams to fully cozy it up.Besides, the (2) small Bolsters on each end are a MUST. Classic and chic.

Inviting Pillow Arrangement

This said, there are many options and even my rules are not applying to every interior design project I have been working on. So, do what feels right.

And if Mr. Right doesn’t agree – (maybe after a pillow fight he will notice that more pillows are an advantage for more fun..) there will be always plenty of time to sneak in one or two more pillows without him even noticing. 😉

Sina
