It’s been a while since I’ve been to HomeGoods.  It usually takes them a good month + to restock their stores after Christmas so I usually wait until mid February or March to see what’s new for spring.  I’m fortunate that there are four HomeGoods within a 10-15 minute drive from my house. Having been to all of the store many times, I’ve learned which ones get the most stock and have the best inventory.

A couple of days ago I popped into two HomeGoods stores.  The first store was lean on merchandise but they did  one great piece that stopped me in my tracks.

This small acrylic table was just gorgeous and I imagined how great it would look as a side table, or bar cart.  I was surprised to see it in the store but at $99.00 I think the price stopped a lot of people in their tracks.  (update:  I posted this table on Instagram and like me it was a hit.  I went back to get the style number for someone and unfortunately it sold the evening that I saw it)


The other HomeGoods I went to is my favorite.  The shelves are usually filled to the max and they always have a great selection of furniture.  Here’s a look at what I spotted…

These marble top nesting tables were stunning.  I love the two-tone marble combined with the chrome base.  I’d pair these with a pair of leather chairs to create a stylish seating area.


This rustic wood media console was well made and the wood tone was really nice.  This would be an easy piece to mix with modern or eclectic decor.


The color of the year, Marsala is well represented in HomeGoods and I spotted it in this sleek desk/console table.  The gold x-legs and crystal knobs just add to the style of this piece.



There were lots of fret work pieces in the store.  I’ve seen this mirrored chest of drawers before and still love it.  It would make the perfect night stand.


Finding oversized coffee table can be a challenge sometimes.  This wood beauty had great lines and a nice finish.  The glass top and bottom would add an airy feel to a living space.


HomeGoods must be predicting this metal cross leg table a winner because there were about 6 of them in the store.  The height is ideal if someone is looking for a nightstand with minimal details.  I think it would also look great in a bathroom holding towels and personal care items.


There were lots of small side tables to choose from in varying styles, shapes and finishes.


This round brass and marble table was my favorite.



Spring is garden stool season at HomeGoods and they continue to bring in updated styles in great colors.  Blue is definitely a trending color for spring and they has several styles to choose from.


I loved this green stool and really considered buying it.


This orange table/stool was so cute and would make a fun accent table on a sun porch or in a kids room.


There were lots of chairs in the store but this is the only one that really caught my attention.  I love the detail of plaid on the back.


HomeGoods has been carrying more and more headboards and this twin headboard was a winner.  The orange piping was the perfect detail to dress up the neutral fabric.  How cute would this be paired with that orange stool above.


If you’re in the market for an ottoman to put at the foot of the bed or use as a coffee table, now is the time to shop.  Most of the ottomans were storage ottoman too which gives you more bang for your buck.



The pillow shelves were overflowing.

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again…you can’t beat the lamps at HomeGoods.

The store I was in had a great selection of bold brass lamps


and some really great decorative styles in ceramic and metal.  These striped lamps were killer!



And if you’ve gotta entertaining on the calendar for spring, be sure to check out the housewares section for beautiful plates, bowls and serving pieces like the lemon plate at the top.

So, have you spotted anything great at HomeGoods for spring? #homegoodshappy

Custom Easter Basket by ConfettiStyle (20) copy

Growing up my mom would make Easter baskets  for me and my brother.  She went to great lengths to create those baskets and would always make them more than a basket full of candy.  It wasn’t unusual for me to find slippers or crafting supplies in my basket and my brother to find socks or drum sticks.  Every year the baskets felt special and unique, and they always brought smiles to our faces.

One of my favorite decorative accessories is a starburst mirror.  I love their shape and classic yet modern feel they add to a room.

The other day I was on the hunt for a budget friendly starburst mirror and found myself on Wayfair.com.  If you’ve never shopped at Wayfair before, you’ve been missing out.

spring flowers

Only four more days until spring.  I am super excited about warmer temps and being able to spend more time outdoors.  We got a dose of spring this weekend here in Atlanta and it was heavenly.  The sun was shining, the trees are flowering and the daffodils are in full bloom. The only downside of spring’s arrival is the pollen that will be attacking us in the next couple of weeks.

Today I wanted to share a few easy ideas to bring a touch of spring into your home.

Guest Bathroom Update (26) copy

My love for gold leaves started when I found this gold leaf tray to go in my guest bathroom.  Ever since then I’ve been spotting leaf themed items everywhere.

The other day I popped into Michael’s to pick up some craft paint and I spotted these cute ceramic leaves in their dollar section.  The leave came in a pack of two and were meant to be used as ornaments.  Ornaments would be cute but I immediately imagined these little leaf gems crafted into a necklace.

I know lots of you look for cost-effective ways to decorate your home, so today I wanted to share the best and most budget friendly decorating idea to make your bathroom look more expensive.



Paint is the easiest way to Up-Style and chanage the look and feel of any room in your home, including your bathroom.  Pull out that paint brush and by the end of the weekend you can have a totally new look in the lou!

Here’s a little motivation to inspire you…

Tips for painting bathroom cabinets:

1)  Clean and then sand the existing finish–doing this will get any oils or residue of the cabinets and create a fresh surface for the paint

2)  Prime the cabinet and doors–this will ensure a smooth paint application

3)  Use a quality paint like Ace Hardware Cabinet, Door & Trim paint (this paint will level after applying and will not show brush strokes)

4) Use a foam roller and quality brush to apply paint

5)  Paint one door to ensure you like the color before moving on to the rest

6)  Add two or three coats of paint (waiting about 24 hours between each coat)

Once your cabinets are painted, think about investing a bit more money and upgrading your hardware if needed.  New hardware will be the icing on the cake.

Framed Gift Wrap


It’s not secret that I have a thing for paper products, especially beautiful wrapping paper.  And over the years, I’ve used decorative paper for so many things other that wrapping gifts, like lining drawers or framing it to create artwork.

 The trend of wrapping paper as art has become a popular design trend as of late and because it’s so inexpensive and there are so many great papers on the market, I think wrapping paper as art will stay a hot trend.
