Moving Day: Straight Ahead!

Happy Monday Friends!

Tomorrow is moving day, and between movers, packing, and a severe bout of flu for the past week and a half I've been hard pressed to shoot anything that wasn't a box with a label! But moving brings more with it than just stress. It's a chance to start fresh, wipe the slate clean, and re-work some old decor ideas. So I thought I'd give you a little sneak peak at the some of the new items making their way to the Santa Monica digs.
First off, this Eurostyle, expandable table with orange glass. It's so retro 50's but also feels very fresh right now. Since I'm downsizing to a significantly smaller abode, I need a table that can close up to a fraction of it's length when not seating guests. This puppy is on order to arrive shortly.
  LAPPLJUNG RUTA Rug, low pile IKEAVILMAR Chair IKEA The chair's melamine surface makes it durable and easy to keep clean.
Then of course there's Ikea. It never fails to impress me how often the best basics can be found there! A good example is this area rug we already own in our Santa Barbara house. We love it, and upon returning to Ikea we found that the company actually makes the rug about 30% larger for the same price!! For a cool, $100 we now have a decorative carpet that covers the majority of our new, living-room floor. And this Vilmar chair looks great, supports, the back, and can be stacked in a corner to save space when not in use. At $40 a pop it makes for a great temporary chair set, (until we find what we're ultimately looking for)!

Accents and decor pieces are always key. Since I haven't had a chance to paint any of the interior walls my signature grey and orange, I'm looking for ways to spice up the white paint. Golds and yellows always go a long way, and these Nate Berkus vases at Target along with the Target Room Accent throw pillows helps round out a brighter color scheme.

More to come, and hopefully some peeks at the new abode soon! In the meantime, don't forget to enter my AdoreMe giveaway here for a chance to win some choice lingerie!

With Love,

Noa B
