The Best Gifts for the Home

1- PF Candle Co. Trio – I have a few of these candles and love the scent. But I also love how they look just sitting around my coffee table too.

2- Fiddle Leaf Tree – How fun is this for a gift! I would personally love getting a new fiddle leaf tree.

3- Accent Stool – We have this and use it often in our guest bathroom/kids bathroom. It’s makes for a great spot to sit during bath time with kids.

4- Personalized Cutting Board – I think this is a great gift item to give to in laws!

5- Ring Doorbell Camera – If you have one of these, then you know just how amazing they are. Being able to see who is at the door before answering it, or seeing if packages got delivered. It’s a major game changer.

6- 2020 Calendar – I always think that these calendars are so much fun! Cute and practical.

7- Amazon Echo Dot – We have these in almost every room in our home. We have two Amazon Alexa’s and the Echo dots in the bedrooms. It’s great to add anything to your shopping list, or check the weather wherever you are in your home.

8- Egg Cooker – I have had this for 3 years and it is one of our most used kitchen gadgets. It’s so quick and easy to do and the results are amazing! They peel easily too 🙂

9- Woven Basket – We have this little basket and love how dainty it is. Great place to store keys, mail or kids smaller toys.

10- Bathtub Caddy – Also have this and use it often! Props up my ipad to watch my favorite shows during a warm bath!

11- Mug Display – I think this is such a cute way to display mugs. Especially if you or someone you know collects mugs as they travel. I used to and have large collection.

12- Roomba Vacuum – Another one of our favorite home electronics. It picks up all the extra dirt and dog hair in between vacuuming and does a great job!

13- Plant Stand – I recently got this for my sister for her wedding and the quality is great! Comes in 3 sizes too!

14- Electronic Keypad – If you don’t have one of these for your home, you need to add this to your gift too! We have had these every since being married and owning our first home 7 years ago. It’s so easy and simple to lock up your home when you are running out the door and you don’t have to fret looking for keys in your bag when you come home. Another benefit that we love is being able to connect them to our home automation and are able to lock and unlock the doors if we aren’t home for visitors, if needed.

15- Bookends – I think that anyone can appreciate bookends and can go with a wide range of styles of homes. Which is a safe bet.

16- Art Piece – This gorgeous piece of art is stunning. It comes in so many sizes. A great 8×10 size to sit on a shelf would make for a great gift too.

17- Barefoot Dreams Blanket – For obvious reasons. I don’t think anyone would be upset if you gifted this to them.

18- Candlesticks – I have these and love them. Comes in two sizes which is best to place next to one another.

19- Jewelry Stand – Simple, and affordable way to display jewelry.

20- Cinamood – I really want to get this for Brandon this year. I think it would be a great way to set up a movie outside or while traveling. Maybe even set up for a movie night in your kids room.

21- Wooden Bath Mat – We have this and every time it get’s shown in a photo I get asked about it. Super great for any bathroom.

22- Large Woven Basket – We have this too and it is a great place to store blankets, toys, and anything else.

23- Rattan Mirror – Gorgeous! I just wish I had a spot in my home for it!

24- Dyson Vacuum – One of the best purchases I have ever made. We use this constantly!!!

25- Accent Throw – We have this in both the blue and grey and it is just as comfortable as the barefoot dreams blanket, but a fraction of the price!!

26- Throw Pillow – I’ve always love these pillows and want some for my bedding.

27- Side Table – Such a cute accent side table to go beside a couch or even small bed.

WHERE TO SHOP FOR AREA RUGS FOR ANY ROOM

 

Is it just me, or is picking out a area rug for any room THE hardest thing?!!
I can be super indecisive when narrowing down the perfect rug to add to a living room, bedroom, kitchen, patio space or entry way. It isn’t an easy task. But, I do love shopping around and scoping out the best rugs that way I can give myself LOTS of different options. Today, I wanted to share and hopefully make your life easier by letting you all in on where to shop for area rugs for any room in the house.

From kitchen runners and living rooms to children bedrooms, guest bedrooms, and bathrooms. A rug can completely change the entire theme and vibe of the room. So picking out one that fits your style is the best thing to do. So what is your style? Deciding what kind of look you are wanting is key to making the rug decision that much easier.

As far as rug style goes, you can choose from modern, mid-century, coastal, farmhouse, eclectic, and minimal. Of course there are several other variations, but when I am shopping for an area rug for my particular home, I tend to gravitate toward more modern, mid-century and minimal rugs with a touch of coastal.

I am currently rug shopping as we speak, which is why I wanted to share a big round up of some new favorites, see below. Since we need to transition Edison out of his crib, and into a new ‘big boy’ bed, I planned on completely redoing his room. When I am in the beginning stages of designing a room, I decide what color scheme I plan to follow, then first shop for rugs! I tend to base the room around the rug of my choice. Which then makes finding throw pillows and blankets, accent tables and everything else so much easier.

WHERE TO SHOP FOR AREA RUGS FOR ANY ROOM

Urban Outfitters – One of my very favorite places to buy inexpensive rugs is Urban Outfitters. They are great for kids bedrooms, entry ways, and bathrooms. I also love that you can throw them in the wash! (they may not say to, but I have and they have come out great) Since they are not on the higher price end, I feel that I can swap them out for a new look on a regular basis.

West Elm – When I am shopping for a rug that I hope to keep a few years, I love to get them from West Elm. The quality of their rugs are amazing. They are a bit more on the higher end price. But depending on the size you are hoping for, the price sometimes isn’t too bad.

Swoon Rugs – A great source if you are hunting for an authentic vintage rug.

New England Loom – Another favorite shop of mine for vintage rugs.

Wayfair – If you have the patience to sort through thousands of rugs, Wayfair is the way to go! A great thing about spending your time browsing though so many rugs, is you can find almost exactly what you are hoping for, for a reasonable price too.

Ruggable – This is one of my newer favorites area rug brands to shop! I am actually deciding between two rugs for Edison’s room from here. What’s unique about Ruggable, is that all rugs can be thrown in the washing machine. Great for a kids room or entry way, right? You purchase the rug covering and the rug pad separate or together that way you could switch out the rug covering if you tire of the one you currently have for a fraction of the price.

Lulu and Georgia  – I love their rugs! They are a bit more on the higher end. But again, if you are buying an area rug for a room that you feel you won’t be changing. Invest your money in a good rug that is made with great quality.

Target – Oh my love for Target runs deep. I love buying Target rugs because they are inexpensive and I don’t care if they get trashed in 6 months or less. I love buying them for bathrooms and in small areas where we go in and out of the house, like our door to our back patio.

World Market – They have some great area rugs that have amazing quality. I found an outdoor one from them, and love it.

Walmart – Believe it or not, Walmart has some great rugs online. All different price points too.

Amazon – Another shocker right? I have purchased some rugs from Amazon in the past and was amazed at the quality. Of course the price range can vary on Amazon.

OUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE WITH ARTICLE OUTDOOR FURNITURE

Now that the evenings are starting to cool down, I couldn’t be more thrilled to finally have an outdoor living space that is beautiful and functional all while staying super cozy. It has been about 5 years in the making to finally narrow down patio furniture that really spoke to our family and our needs. The modern furniture from Article has been the best gathering space for our family and I can’t wait to keep making more memories here.
I hesitated purchasing patio furniture until I knew we were settled into a home, but now I am regretting not pulling the trigger sooner. Having an outdoor living space that is fun and functional is so convenient, and it’s a space that the family naturally gathers too! When it came to picking and choosing patio furniture, I had always been drawn to Article’s modern furniture and their neutral palettes. We chose the Ora Sectional with the Ora coffee table to match, and the grey-on-grey color is exactly what I had imagined in this space. I didn’t want bright colored cushions just as a personal preference, but I also knew I didn’t want white cushions since I have children 🙂 This grey color is the perfect blend for us!
We also added these two darling Daisy accent chairs I love how they complete the space. They are super comfortable!! You could easily make these Daisy chairs for the interior of your home, and would be a great accent in a corner of a guest bedroom or children’s bedroom.

I am so impressed with Article’s outstanding customer service. They offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee so you can try out your new furniture in your home. If you’re not completely happy, they’ll pick up the furniture and provide a refund, minus the delivery and pickup charges which is $49 in most cases. We actually ordered the Ora sofa instead of the sectional by accident and they were so incredible and went above and beyond to make the switch happen! It’s companies like this that make me want to buy from them time and time again! The sectional fits this space so perfectly and I am so happy we were able to complete the space with the pieces I originally had in mind.

Article isn’t just an outdoor living furniture online shop. They also offer so many beautiful pieces of furniture to style any room in your home. From solid wood dressers, and leather sofas to rugs, pillows, tables, and chairs! They have everything you need, especially if you love the modern, mid-century decor style. I have always loved this Sven sofa and I plan to add these fun black Rus dining room chairs once we finish (or start!) our dining room.
Article offers free ground shipping on orders over $999. It is always such an incentive when companies offer free shipping. For orders under $999, Article offers a flat shipping fee of $49 (or $19 for small shipments)

HOME REMODEL: MODERN FAMILY ROOM REVEAL

WOW!!!
It has only taken me a year and a half to FINALLY share with you all our complete and finished living room. Well (almost) finished. But finished enough to finally reveal this modern family room living space with you all today. Can you tell I am so excited over here! Literally gleaming for joy to share our Classic and modern living room remodel!

This room was NO easy task when we took it into our hands a year and half ago. It had so much Spanish vibes with a very structural fireplace and old dated carpet. (I hope to share a before and after blog post soon to reveal the entire living room renovation!) We have completely transformed this space and made it feel more like home! Now every single time I walk by the living room space I smile and am so happy with how it turned out!

This modern living room is our families gathering space and I really wanted to make it both special and comfortable! I wanted it to feel warm and cozy, which I do feel it portrays, yet while staying true to our style design with a mix of traditional and modern vibes.

(Be sure to see my 5 easy tips on how to style shelves in your home HERE)

Owens U-Sectional Couch – Interior Define – Name: Herringbone, Fabric Color: Suit, Matte Brass Square Outline legs. Perfect piece to add to a modern living room

Callan Accent Chairs – Room & Board – This was one of the first pieces we got for this space. I love the rich warm colored leather. Walnut legs in the Portofino Cognac color.

Rug – This rug is so perfect for the space.  We have the 9 x 12 size and the colors and texture are great for hiding Boss’ hair and overall keeps the color palette pretty neutral! Double win!

Coffee Table – I had my eye on this coffee table forever! I love how it fits in the space and keeps everything a little brighter with the white concrete material and color.

White Totem Vase  – This vase is 12.5″ and the perfect accessory to add amongst other vases. I love the fun shape and structure

Two-Toned Medium Size Skinny Vase – Love the neutral colors and the diagonal curve of the colors

Sea Glass Beads – Beads are such an easy way to add texture to your shelves. I loved this blue tone beads and draped them from a large bowl.

Mia Vase – I had my eye on this specific vase for awhile. I love the color and knew it would pair perfectly with other white vases.

Home Body Book –  I have this book on top of my coffee table. I love a good pretty book to layer and add texture to shelves or coffee tables.

Rattan Wrapped Vase – One of my favorite vases I have bought as of lately. – I am thinking I will buy this same style one in a sage green color. 

Otonio Art Piece – A statement piece to add to any shelve is a piece of art. Find one that speaks to you!

Farmhouse Beads with Tassel – I got the color grey. I have these draped out of the basket on the top shelf.

Abode Book – Such a great book to look through with the prettiest photos

Yellow Vase – I loved this yellow vase since I other small pops of yellow throughout the home.

Home Remodel: Modern Family Room Reveal by popular California life and style blog, Navy Grace: image of a modern family room with a large grey sectional couch, leather arm chair and round white coffee table.

From the bright color scheme down to the vases, each and every piece of furniture and accent was centered around both this gorgeous Interior Define couch we customized and these two Room & Board accent chairs!  When contemplating what we wanted in this space, we knew we needed a sectional that would fit the room’s layout and design perfectly! Interior Define made it so easy to choose because we were able to customize our selection and make it fit our home style. We choose the Owens U-Sectional in the Suit fabric with a matte brass finish on the square outline legs and I am still in love with how it turned out. It is hard to tell, but the Suit fabric choice has a subtle herringbone pattern in it, which gives off the perfect amount of texture.

I have had my eye on these Callan Accent chairs from Room & Board for over 2 years! I have always been obsessed with the gorgeous brown, cognac color and overall design of the chair. I actually almost decided on the black chairs back when we first bought this home, but am so grateful that went with my gut and went with the cognac brown color. It pairs so beautifully with our natural wood colored ceilings.

As I mentioned earlier, this Modern Living Room Remodel is (almost) complete. I say that because we still have a few things to fix and add!

MORE FIREWOOD in the wood box to be one of them!! I laugh with you all because I was dying when I order 4 boxes of birch wood a few weeks before shooting this and officially finishing our fireplace that sat unfinished for 9 months. In my mind, I thought 4 boxes of 10 logs would at least fill the wood box half way! BOY WAS I WRONG!!!

I was laughing hysterically when the first box I stacked gave me two rows. TWO ROWS!! I even brought out a ladder and everything!! Long story short, Brandon makes fun of me on a regular that I only bought 40 logs! But to me, I had a vision that they would be a bit larger in scale!

So, with that being said, I do plan to order more logs to fill up the entire woodbox for a more complete look! I had already scheduled the photoshoot and didn’t have time to order more logs.

A lot of patience and LOVE went into this room. Brandon and I both played a big roll into how it was designed and of course contracted. We couldn’t do it without the help of some amazing people and brands.

5 EASY TIPS ON HOW TO STYLE SHELVES IN YOUR HOME

 

We are getting SO close to finishing our living room after we started the renovation process almost a year ago. It’s been a long and fun journey, but I am happy to finally see light at the end of the tunnel. It’s true when they say, good things take time!! I have officially started to style our shelves in the living room and I will just go ahead and say that styling shelves is NO JOKE!!! Anyone who knows how to style shelves and do it well deserves a pat on the back!

I am still not quite finished styling the shelves, but I have come a long way and with that have done LOTS of online searching! Searching for those perfect key decor pieces to add to shelves and spaces that need some styling. I can’t wait to do a full reveal of the living room, which is coming soon, but first we have to finish painting and staining cabinets! You’ll just have to wait and see what we decided to officially do with our floating cabinets. We will either paint them black or stain them to match the floating shelves! Be sure to stay tuned.

5 Tips on How to Style Shelves in Your Home by popular Souther California lifestyle blog, Navy Grace: image of two floating shelves decorated with plants, books, baskets, picture frames, and pottery.

I can’t even begin to tell you how many images I have saved prior to beginning the styling of my home, specifically when I was figuring out how to style shelves in my living room, bathroom and kitchen. I have an album on my phone, IG, and of course many pins on Pinterest. During my searches, I have found a few things in common; Vases, candle sticks, art pieces, plants, frames, books, and baskets, are the KEY to success when styling shelves. Or at least that is what I have been really drawn to in most of the inspiration photos I have saved.

5 TIPS ON HOW TO STYLE SHELVES IN YOUR HOME

Add Plants – When in doubt, add a plant! A bit of green goes a long ways when it comes to shelves and adds the perfect amount of color, especially if you are keeping to a more neutral color scheme.

Stick to Color Scheme – Decide on if you want bright colors, neutrals, black and whites, or a pop of color. I decided to keep mine simple and neutral with pops of black to accent the rest of the home.

Mix a Variety of Vases – A variety of vases in all shapes, sizes, and heights makes for easy styling. Buy several and play around with them

Add Books – Books are a great ‘fill in’ decor piece to add. You can layer them like I did and use to create more height. Or you can turn them around to see the pages and place them between book ends.

Art Pieces – Find a piece or two you love and layer them. I still want to add an art piece to the top of this shelf, just waiting to find that perfect piece. Layer art with your family photos too!

Mortar and Pestel – The unique texture on this mortar and pestel is why I picked this one over others.

Sugar Pot – It’s just adorable, so of course I added it to the kitchen shelves.

30 AFFORDABLE URBAN OUTFITTERS HOME DECOR PIECES TO REFRESH YOUR HOME THIS SUMMER

 

Have you shopped Urban Outfitters home decor yet?

With Summer here and the sun shining longer hours of the day making my home brighter, I have loved adding fun pops of color to each room in my house. A color theme has taken place in my home lately. I’m loving anything mustard, green, and blush.

When it comes to shopping for home decor pieces I have always loved and trusted Urban Outfitters for various of things. I can always count on their clothing to get me through each season, but as we have started to decorate our home this past year, I have really loved finding fun affordable pieces from Urban Outfitters.

I love finding larger staple furniture pieces, like this woven bench in our entry way, this side table in Lucy’s room and our dining table in our nook. But I have also found their accent pillows to be such a great way to add color or texture to any room.

The most recent room I have been trying to complete is our breakfast nook. It still is nowhere near to being finished, but it’s a start. We finally got the wallpaper installed and I knew it was time to switch out rugs and add these fun accent pillows to give the space more color and variety.
