A Little Home Decor Update

I love window-shopping in home decor stores, but I usually come out empty-handed because 1) I can be picky, 2) I don't want to clutter up our minimalist space with too many knickknacks, and 3) we already have the basics. Despite my urge to keep things simple though, I have an even more overwhelming urge to change things up a bit to reflect the changing seasons. My compromise between the two resulted in chrysanthemums from my mom's garden and a few mini pumpkins scattered around the condo: pretty decorations while they last, natural and biodegradable, and therefore guilt-free, when it's time to get rid of them. The new pair of bird-shaped salt-and-pepper shakers (serving a purely ornamental purpose on the side table) was courtesy of my little brother (so thoughtful!).

Since my last home decor update, not much has changed really. We bought a glossy white dining table and some dining chairs (one orange, three white). The flatscreen TV and media stand are set up, so we spend a lot of rainy nights in watching Netflix with a lit scented candle and a glass of wine.I guess this means we're settling in!

What do you do to shift your home decor from season to season?


  1. To be honest, home decor has never been my thing... I want to be good at applying my fashion skills to my home, but it just doesn't hold my interest long enough for me to ever finish a project. The most we ever really got through in our place was buying the basics and painting! Your place is looking great - I love those little birds :)

  2. Love the pop of colour that the chrysanthemums bring to a room!

  3. I'm pretty simple when I shift home decor - sometimes it's getting seasonal tea towels and placemats in the kitchen for autumn and winter. During the spring and summer I love filling my home with flowers :)
