As you may know, I am an interior design freak! I don’t even have my own house, but I always make sure to visit home decor stores and do some online research- weird right?!
December being just around the corner, I thought of dedicating a full post to subtle and simple home decor ideas for the holidays. Not everyone is a fan of the massive Christmas decoration, including myself, so that’s why I decided to write this post.
I usually find the best/affordable Christmas decoration at BHV &H&M Home (If you are based in Lebanon). If you want super affordable decoration, I advise you to go to H&M Home after the Christmas season is over, you will find the best picks for an average of $5-$10 (including pillow cases), so you can keep these items for next year.
I am already brainstorming some cool ideas for the holiday season including gift guides! If you have some topics that you would like me to write about this month please let me know 🙂
I admit, I have a serious obsession with everything related to marble, and no I don’t need an intervention haha!
It’s no secret that I have a real passion for everything related to home deco, but my obsession with marble has gone to a new level (even my phone wallpaper is a marble pattern!). So far, I have marble necklaces and a phone cover, but sadly I can’t find any marble trays which is the one thing that I really need in my room. If you know any places in Beirut that sell marble related items, please feel free to share 🙂
Below are photos for some inspiration!
If I was asked to choose a major other than Business – which I really love btw, I would have definitely chosen interior design!
I have a feeling that I’ve already mentioned many times on the blog that I really love everything related to interior design and home deco, but I don’t think I’ve ever published a post under this subject. I always find myself running to all home related stores even if I don’t need anything. I also find all the inspiration that I need on Pinterest and Tumblr for any potential deco project in the future (Yes, I already know what my home is going to look like)
Since it’s starting to feel like winter, I decided to feature on the blog some images to inspire you with everything related to home deco. Personally, I always make changes around the house to make it more cozy and winter-ish. Eventually, it is all about the little details that can really make a major transformation from summer to winter.
What do you need to shop for while doing this summer-winter transition:
- Blankets – many of them
- Candles (Holiday themed candles are the best!!!)
- Christmas themed items (mugs,cushions,blankets,rugs..)
- Cozy bedding
You don’t need to purchase items every year if you have the basics!
I usually head to a few places in Beirut to find all the items I need. My favorites are Zara Home, H&M Home, and West Elm. Sadly we don’t have Ikea in Lebanon or else you would have found me there on a daily basis, but for now I usually stick to the 3 places mentioned above
