We found ourselves traveling again quite a bit the last few weeks, and although we enjoy new places and a change in scenery is always a nice refresher, we’re looking forward to staying home with the holidays quickly approaching. We’re still hoping to get into a home of our own for the holiday season, but that’s all still pretty uncertain and we’re trying to take it day by day. Half of our apartment remains in boxes (you can read more about that here, incase you missed it). We probably should have unpacked everything and put things back in order, but I guess you can call it wishful thinking on our part. Regardless of the state this apartment is in, we still want it to feel cozy and embrace the change in seasons.
Although we have moving on our minds, we’re quickly learning we can’t neglect our current space, which we were kind of doing maybe just a little bit. It really affects how we feel when we’re home and to put it simply: we like to be home, whether it’s with friends, with each other, just watching a movie, or curling up with a book in our pjs. We thought we should give our space some TLC, so we gave our bedroom a refresh for fall, with soft mixed patterns, warm textures, and a few twinkling lights from Urban Outfitters. It’s just a few very small additions, but they really make the room feel so inviting. When we were living in NY we had our room lined with a bunch of little white Christmas lights. It was always so calming to turn those on at night or during a cold and rainy winter day. They definitely offered a sense of comfort.
These candles made our room smell like fresh baked cookies and it was glorious! Add some tunes by Iron & Wine, take a few moments to de-stress from whatever may have consumed your thoughts this week, cuddle with your pup and loved one, and you have a recipe for the ultimate Sunday.
