Furniture and Home Accents

Does your home feel bare after you’ve purged with an early Spring cleaning? Now is the perfect time to embrace a fresh new look. Whether your style is modern farmhouse, coastal or transitional I’m sharing my latest and favorite HomeGoods finds.


The velvet trend is still going strong! It was meant to be that my HomeGoods had two of these luxurious navy blue velvet tufted chairs. It is their soft rounded lines and cozy soft upholstery that makes them a family favorite. I added contrasting color with these bright colored down filled accent pillows and curtain panels.

Trays, Trays, & More Trays. Create a rich and interesting coffee table vignette by layering green and gold accessories. Mix shapes and sizes for a collected look.

Don’t be afraid to mix metals. I fell in love with this silver and gold polka dotted bowl.  I stopped by the floral aisle and grabbed a bag of moss filler and faux boxwood orbs to fill her up. Oh, and I never leave HomeGoods without a beautiful coffee table book!

Modern Farmhouse

My sister recently renovated her home, taking down a wall to create a large farmhouse style kitchen. This neutral palette home is anything but boring.  The bright open space is loaded with texture, clean lines and pops of color.

Home Sweet Home. I artfully stacked her open shelves with white dinnerware, various canisters and containers that accompany metal and wood accents. For even more interest and color I added glazed mugs, serving bowls, faux greenery and candles that I found in the checkout aisle.

It’s Coffee O’Clock. I tucked in a rustic wood shelving cabinet with several wicker baskets, a storage ottoman, a down filled pillow, tray and a faux succulent garden.  I then finished the look with a brightly colored tassel rug that added color and a bit of whimsy.

Sitting Pretty. I brought in more metal and wood with rustic tin candleholders, monogram letters, decorative accents, and a modern side table. Next, the sofa is loaded up with gray, white and jute pillows that add texture and interest.  Anchoring all of this is a gray tone-on-tone embossed carpet. Channel Spring with faux greenery!


I Love You to the Beach and Back. The sign says it all. When it came to decorating our lake house I stayed true nautical with all shades of blue. I always say that every room needs a striped fabric and this cottage is no exception.

I accessorized with bleached and painted wood furnishings including this gray washed tray, carved wood buoys, driftwood, white washed candle votives and a pair of carved wood and linen sail boats. Ahoy!

I don’t know about you, but the art department is the first thing I beeline for at HomeGoods. To create height on the opposite wall I found the most amazing set of black and white nautical photography.

The aisles at HomeGoods are overflowing with fabulous finds. We filled up four carts on our shopping trip and would have bought more if my car was just a bit bigger!
