Weekend Home Improvements

Having company is always an excuse to get things done at home. This weekend our Unhalloween Halloween Party inspired us to make a few small updates to our place.

After venturing to Pottery Barn four times in efforts to purchase their ivory faux fur throw {of which they have no idea when it will be in stock}, I caved in and bought West Elm's version. Although Pottery Barns' seems more luxurious, I was sick of waiting. Good thing I did. I saved $60! Throws are 20% off at West Elm right now.

We also picked up this small, wise owl for our desk - how appropriate!

Ikea Tobias Chair
Finally, we set out to the burbs to pick up this desk chair from Ikea. A little different from the ghost chair I originally wanted to purchase. However, it seems more comfortable and still feels airy.

These small purchases had a large impact on our apartment. See for yourself!

Last but not least ...
An entertaining staple and simple pleasure of mine; nothing beats fresh flowers!

  1. Oh this post is so up my alley:) I was just over at West Elm looking at the fur throws yesterday and was wondering what they were like-It looks amazing on your sofa- love! I have those IKEA chairs around my dining table and they are fantastic- so comfortable and I like how modern they look- I have one ghost chair and it is pretty as well but definitely not as comfortable. Also loving your adorable owl and the vase is sooo pretty! xo
