The last shop from the couch (found here) that I did was met with a lot of happy client shoppers. I definitely love to support local whenever I can, and I'll be adding a new local feature to do just that. For now, we'll continue to do some lazy couch shopping while enjoying your favorite mug/cup/glass of something delicious.

I really love the idea of ordering via my phone and having stuff show up here. Especially because we now live in such a remote location. Maybe you don't live in the middle of nowhere, but how fun is it to get stuff delivered right to your door?

**denotes items that I personally have purchased and LOVE.

1. This is a two-pack of wooden framed mirrors measuring at a generous 22 inches across. I think they're really lovely, and I'm likely going to order a set. I'd love to see them hung one above the other. This set is well reviewed and comments state that the wood is nice and sturdy, which makes me super happy to know. Priced at 69.99, you can't really go wrong. You can order them here.

2. I love a white pumpkin. I used them frequently in my decor over the past few fall/Hallowe'en seasons. This is a fun bundle because it's a little charming looking, and they're all different sizes. 12 pieces, well reviewed, and super adorable. It's a great deal comparative to what I have spent elsewhere in the past from craft stores and big box stores. 25.99

3. **You're about to do a lot more cooking and baking now that the weather is about to change. I personally own this exact set, and I LOVE it. I recently made all kinds of tomato sauce with our garden haul, and none of the utensils I used got stained whatsoever. The handles are real wood and they're sealed nicely. I loved that I could get rid of my mish-mash of old utensils and now have one cohesive set that matches. It's the little things. Perfect pricing at 29.99. Worth every penny in my book.

4. **Initially one of these gorgeous cotton blankets was ordered for a client's bedroom overhaul, and then I loved it so much when it showed up, that I purchased my own. Even better pricing right now!! I ordered mine in the black colour as shown on the mood board above, and I can't tell you how much I love it on my own bed. It's awesome.

5. I'm loving on this lamp. It has really nice lines, and it lights up both inside the shade, and inside the base. Nice little touch up for your living space without breaking the bank. Well reviewed, and a nice size.

6. If you love to decorate around the seasons, this little throw pillow case is super cute for autumn. Find an insert and away you go! I adore this one for 14.99.

7. Two plush Autumn themed Gnomes for 23.99? Yes, please. Super cute for seasonal decor, and you bring them out every year after you name them.

A moody dive into couch shopping.

I'm fond of Dark Academia and moody decor. I wanted to put a look together that is affordable and transitional. You can pick these pieces up and not have to worry about breaking the bank or getting sick of them in a year from now. Maybe something you see here will fit your space, and you aren't even a moody person! Worth a look, right?

1. I found these really interesting high-quality printed images of emotive and moody paintings and prints. I love how they've been curated together. I actually own a large canvas of the Van Gogh skull detail that is included. They are unframed, but the reviews state that they're very good quality, and arrive in standard framing sizes. Can't go wrong there! You can pick them up here for 17.99! There is a lighter, creamier set found here which is very mellow but interesting. This is a perfect gallery wall DIY.

2. This is a beautiful collection of bud vases that will hold all of your pretty seasonal summer cuttings, and in the fall, you can transition to feathers and dried flowers. I really love this collection because it looks vintage, but it's already curated for you to just display. Way easier than curating it slowly on your own. It's also available in green, brown, pink, and other variations. Curated look that arrives in the mail. I love it.

3. I love this 20x24" gold framed mirror. It's resin, so not flimsy, and looks beautifully antique without the cost. Perfect for a powder room or to bounce some light around in a moody living area. If you get sick of it, paint it or move it elsewhere. Really great price under 60.00.

4. Really great pattern on this machine washable rug. I love the cream with the dark off-black and simplistic pattern. This is a whole mood all by itself and will work with heaps and heaps of awesome decor. Great price for a 6.5x9.5 rug! I am in love. Find it here for under 200.00

5. This (literally) multi-faceted vase/bowl is such a great find. I love the height at nearly a foot tall and wide. So many uses, but I'd love to see it filled with dark feathers and dried grasses. Under 30.00 here.

6. There's nothing like a great assorted bunch of gold candlestick holders. I love these because they can be arranged as all different sizes, but they do have same-sized pieces that you can put together as well. Super affordable for a set of six, and no time wasted thrifting for them. Under 50.00 here (also available in silver and black!)

I am looking forward to doing more of these "shop from the couch" collabs. If you're reading this, and you have suggestions on local artists/makers/businesses that I can also merge with this, please please reach out as I'd love to do that as well!

Thanks for stopping by,

There are ways to ensure you meet your aesthetic, and also light a space properly. Let's talk about it!

Lighting is one of the most important elements of interior design – it can completely transform a space, drawing attention to certain features and creating the desired mood and ambiance. But with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to decide how to use light effectively in your home.

It's definitely important to consider the natural light available in your space. If possible, maximize the amount of natural light coming in by using sheer curtains or no window treatments at all. This will make your space feel brighter, more open and natural. If natural light is limited, consider adding different sources of artificial light to compensate. The dining space below makes use of both.

Also, think about the purpose of the room! The type of lighting you choose should reflect the activities taking place. For example, in a living room, you might want a soft, warm glow for relaxation, so consider using floor lamps or table lamps with soft bulbs. In a kitchen or workspace, where task lighting is important, opt for bright, focused lights to help you see what you're doing. Nightstand lamps are great for task lighting. Keep the room dim, but focus on your reading.

When choosing lighting fixtures, consider their design and placement. The fixtures themselves can add personality to a space and serve as a decorative element. On the other hand, a poorly placed light fixture can disrupt the flow of a room. Be mindful of where you place them to create balance and harmony within your space. A semi-flush piece will keep the lighting on task, but elevated so that it doesn't impede your view!

Consider layering your lighting. This means using multiple lighting sources and fixtures to create depth and ambiance within a room. For example, you might use a combination of table lamps, floor lamps and overhead lighting to create a dynamic and interesting space.

When it comes to using light in interior design, think about the natural light available, the purpose of the room, the design of your fixtures, and the layering of your lighting. By taking these factors into account, you'll create a cohesive and inviting space that reflects your personal style.
