Home Improvements

I am lucky enough to have my own apartment (thanks mom and dad)!  After a very bad roommate situation, this is such a blessing.  One of the best things about living alone is that I can decorate the entire place however I like.  I’ve lived there over a year now, so I’m looking to make a few changes to the decor….

Monstera Leaves Removable WallpaperScreen Shot 2015-09-29 at 9.33.28 PM

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I adore leaf prints.  Makeup bags, bathing suits, home decor, I have so much of it!  But as a renter, I can’t paint my walls or do anything permanent without my landlady’s permission.  This wallpaper from Etsy is adhesive and removable, perfect for a temporary accent wall!

Matisse Vintage PrintScreen Shot 2015-09-29 at 9.52.56 PM

I absolutely love vintage posters and prints of beautiful art.  I can’t wait to hang this because even though it is a French painting, it actually reminds me of eating breakfast at our old apartment in Jerusalem.

Savannah Forsyth Park PosterScreen Shot 2015-09-29 at 10.08.08 PM

My family escaped the harsh winters of 2014 on a trip to the South, and I totally fell in love with the historic beauty that is Downtown Savannah.  Our hotel was right on Forsyth Park, and I have very fond memories of a sunny afternoon spent sitting next to this fountain and petting lots of cute puppies!

Moroccanoil® Candle6238726e17b357027c76df860615d96a

I’ve written before about how much I love MoroccanOil products.  If this candle smells half as good as the stuff I put in my hair, I will be in heaven!  (Cute matchboxes here)

Peaches Mug5e2bb3855bd34c32e7d0f69d02c2bda5

I already have so many mugs.  Like, this is very unnecessary.  But my mom’s nickname for me is Little Peach, and they are such cute and pretty fruits.  This mug definitely will brighten up cold winter mornings.

Oh my god you guys, my blog on a pillow!!!!  It is a bit more than what I’m willing to pay for a throw pillow, but how cute and funny is this coincidence?

Anne de Solene Etincelles Duvet8454086_fpx

The print on this duvet reminds me of the hydrangea bushes in our backyard on the Cape.  I’m hoping my parents will let me get this during the Friends & Family discount at Bloomingdale’s, because the Marimekko duvet I have now is literally from when my parents were newlyweds haha!  I also really like this duvet from Anthropologie.

I just love this!

This was my first home piece, so I hope you guys like it.  I can’t wait to get my apartment all fixed up.  Nothing like a happy home, am I right?

XX, Gabrielle
