Friday Finds!

Friiiday! Y’all. It’s been such a full, exciting week over here. So much has been accomplished, including:

1) We finally took our Christmas tree down! It was a momentous occasion, folks. Only took us 29 days after Christmas to make it happen. Cuz we’re go-getters like that. Don’t judge.

2) Our church community groups have launched! This is a weekly bible study (one of many at the church!) that we host in our home and we LOVE it. People gathering together to share a meal and grow and learn with each other and God – it’s amazing to be a part of! It’s also the reason we finally had to de-Christmas. Which is good, because otherwise it might’ve been June before it happened.

3) I spent yesterday afternoon doing a few baking experiments for an exciting project I’m working on! Hopefully I can share more with y’all about that soon – just know that I’m stoked! Creating recipes is seriously my happy place.

Okay, now onto the good stuff! I’ve decided to redo part of our guest room to include a home office for myself (since my crafting/DIY goodies runneth over), so the hunt is on for pieces to make the vision I have come to life! I’ve also managed to wrangle my incredible husband into re-painting the guest room for me. The one we just repainted, oh, 4 months ago, you ask? Yes, that one. He is way too good to me! Thankful he puts up with my crazy ideas. So needless to say, this process definitely inspired some of my finds this week!

Ranarp Work Lamp $39.99 @ IKEA

This lamp. I can’t even… I die. I love this light so much that I literally want to go out this second and buy 10 of them. Because that’s not impulsive. Or excessive. Right? But seriously!! SWOON!

Boho Boutique Mika Shower Curtain (ON SALE) $22.49 @ Target (online only)

This shower curtain. Not for my office (obvs), but I do loveee it! It would bring such a fresh pop of color to a bathroom, guest or master! I love that there are 2 separate fabrics – a party for your eyes!

Urban Industrial Open Bookcase – Antique Silver (ON SALE) $251.00 @ Home Decorator’s Collection

This bookshelf. I mean, COME ON! I am so obsessed with metal decor right now, it’s not even funny. This is just such a great neutral, simple piece of furniture that would add so much to a room. Like, an office. Cough cough.

Matilda Relax Kidney Pillow $35.00 @ Home Decorator’s Collection

This pillow. This would look so great as a statement pillow in various rooms – a bedroom or on the couch in a livingroom. It’s bright, cheery & adds a nice homey touch.

Stockholm Mirror $99.00 @ IKEA

This mirror. IKEA has done it again, y’all! This is one of their new mirrors and I am in luuuurve with it! Love this for an entry way, above a table, in a bathroom or even an office! Cough cough. ;)

I hope this week’s finds inspired you in some way and sparked a few ideas as you decorate YOUR home! Have a great weekend, my friends!!

Friday Finds!

It’s Friday!!! Yippee!! The weekend always makes me an especially happy camper because I get to spend it with my man! Tonight will consist of me crafting & him studying for his teacher’s exam (party animals, right?!) and then tomorrow we have a DATE!!! Seriously, I love dating my husband. We don’t always have time to get away together but one of our goals this year is to MAKE time. Life gets so busy and it’s easy to let days slip by without really connecting or talking about things that matter; we have to consciously carve out moments to find each other. So excited to just sit and stare into each other’s eyes ;)

Anyways, Friday! This week I found some super awesome finds and I’m excited to share them with you! These
posts are some of my favorite to write because I have such a passion for making a home welcoming & inviting. I love when people come onto my house and immediately feel at ease and comfortable. My wish is to help provide you with pieces that help YOU make your home a haven, too! :) if you want that, that is. If you don’t want your home to be welcoming, then this is probably the wrong blog for you ;) haha let’s get started!

Knit Chevron Blanket - Tan and Cream $29.99 @ Target

Knit Chevron Blanket – Tan and Cream $29.99 @ Target

This blanket! I love blankets. I love chevron. I love neutral colors. All three of my favorite things in ONE item?! Hallelujah, the world rejoices! Or I do, at least. This would be perfect on the end of a bed or on a couch in the livingroom! This throw is a great way to add some texture to a room without it being obnoxious or taking away from any of your other décor.

 

Kramare Light $9.99 @ IKEA

Kramare Light $9.99 @ IKEA

This light! LOVE these! I love the simplicity of the design. These would look great on either side of your bed, over a nightstand or even in a hallway!

 

"Birds Greenery" by Fabrice De Villencuve $99.99 @ World Market

“Birds Greenery” by Fabrice De Villencuve $99.99 @ World Market

This painting! If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you probably know by now that I would live in World Market if I could. Seriously. I love their style – this painting is no different! The bright but subtle colors make this piece so versatile. It would look beautiful in an entry way with some vases styled around the bottom of it, or even in a bathroom! It feels soft and whimsical and I WANT IT. Haha.

Wildaster Callie Area Rug (ON SALE) $79.98 @ Kirklands

Wildaster Callie Area Rug (ON SALE) $79.98 @ Kirklands

This rug! This blue is one of my favorite colors at the moment. It speaks to me! This would look so good in a dining room or even an entry way. It seems like it would bring the right amount of color to any room you place it in!

 

 

Kitchen Cart - Natural $169.99 (online only) @ Target

Kitchen Cart – Natural $169.99 (online only) @ Target

This cart! I go gaga over pieces like these. I love the natural look and something like this is so useful for a kitchen. I know there are many times that I wish I could have a mobile cutting station or something of the like. This might just have to end up on one of my wish lists. Cough, cough. Honey, are you reading this?? ;)

Well, that’s it for this week! I hope something I posted caught your eye & you decide to add it to your home collection! I’d love to hear about it if it did! :) You can find me on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram (username: __theculturedcavewoman__). Have a great weekend, y’all!!

Friday Finds!

Yay for Friday Finds! I’ve been out of the loop for the past few weeks on posting these, but baby, I’m back! And betta than EVAAA. Okay, you totally needed to be in person to hear that come out of my mouth. Typing it just feels silly. And now here we are. Awkward.

Okay, so, I really enjoyed searching around this week for some super cool pieces of furniture and other items! I love decorating my home and creating an inviting atmosphere… and being on a budget can sometimes make this difficult, as I’m sure many of you can attest to. Hence why Friday Finds was born. I want to showcase some (AFFORDABLE) chic items each week that inspire you and allow you to create the home of your dreams! While not breaking your bank ;) So without further ado…

image

Room Essentials Rugby Comforter – Blue/White $19.99-$39.99 @ Target

This blanket set. Bedding has to be one of my all-time favorite purchases. Except there are only 2 beds in my house (master and guest room). And they both have comforters already. Soo I can only dream about beauties like this one! I don’t know what it is with me and navy stripes, but they make me swoon. Every. Time. Please tell me I’m not alone in this??

image

Nandor Chair $79.99 @ IKEA

This chair. I LOVE the mixture between the silver legs and sand colored seat. It’s a perfect mix of elements, in my opinion. It’d look great in an all-white dining room, around the table. Or even in a sitting area, with a throw blanket tossed across. So many options!

image

Ensidig Vase (7″) $1.99 @ IKEA

This vase. Seriously, I love this thing. And honestly, I might not even use it as a vase. It’d be super cute as a party favor. Maybe a milk and cookies themed baby shower (which a chevron straw in it – can you picture it?!) or as a hot cocoa mix holder for a Christmas gift? I just love the vintage look and how versatile it is.

image

Maastricht Bronze Lattice Lantern (7.25″) ON SALE $8.79 @ Kirklands

This lantern. I can’t stop staring at these! 2 or 3 of them would be the perfect accent to a mantle or a bookshelf. They’d be great on a TV stand, as well, to add a little pizazz. On top of a bar counter, maybe? I love the simplicity of the design – while still being an eye-catcher. Perfection!

image

Seafoam Green Pierced Wall Plaque $149.99 @ Kirklands

This wall plaque. This thing is gorgeous, wouldn’t you agree?? LOVE the color – a great neutral while still adding some spark to a room. It’d be great over an entry table, or even on a mantle! You could use 2 of them in a bedroom as a headboard or a wall decoration. The design and color lend themselves to a variety of options. I love investing in pieces like this – because you can use it in multiple locations in your house throughout the years!

Well, that’s it for this week’s Friday Finds! Which one did you like best? What are some of your favorite places to shop?? I’d love to hear from you! I’m off to get ready for the day (which includes straightening my hair – cuz let’s be honest… it’s pretty terrifying right now), running some errands & then working this afternoon. Hope you all have a beautiful day – happy Friday, my friends!! :)

Friday Finds!

YAY! It’s Friday! Maybe it’s me, but I feel like the past few weeks have FLOWN by.. not that I’m complaining or anything!!

My big plans this weekend include loading up on the Advil Cold & Sinus and sleeping. Oh, and studying for that insurance licensing exam. We’re real partiers over here, y’all. Can hardly contain the party-ness. It’s practically oozing from us. Party. Party. Party. BTdubs, those last few sentences were pure sarcasm, just in case you didn’t catch it ;) Hopefully you have more exciting things on your plate this weekend than catching some zzz’s!

On a side note, I did happen to find some great items this week! I’m excited to share them with you guys! I hope that they inspire you to dream about your space and spark some new ideas in your planning!

Faux Mongolian Lamb Pouf $149.99 @ West Elm

Okay, I realize this might be a little out there for some.. but I LOVE it! Such a great focal piece for a living room or bed room. It looks so soft and cozy. It makes me want to curl up on it and take a nap – which partially might be because I’m ridiculously sick right now, but hey, I’m just gonna go with it. Seriously though, I think this would add a great touch to a room that has a lot of wood or rustic pieces in it – it adds the perfect amount of softness without being overbearing.

image

Metal Wrapped Braxton Dining Table $599.99 @ World Market

I LOVE this! I’m slightly obsessed with the metal/wood mixture lately, and this embodies that marriage perfectly! World Market has really cornered the market on affordable furniture that screams quality and desirability. This would be a great statement piece for your dining room!

image

Soare placemat $3.99 @ IKEA

I’m about to head to IKEA in the next couple of weeks to grab some of these! I love that they’re so natural looking. They’ll go great with the dark wood of my table and chairs and the new fabric we’re (slowly) reupholstering with! I love mixing light and dark shades of brown and these would definitely help me accomplish that!

image

Hektar Floor Lamp $69.99 @ IKEA

I just love that these look like spotlights! It’d be perfect in a teenager’s room or living room. They’re industrial looking, which I’m also obsessed with lately, and would be a great accent to almost any décor. They are fairly tall, so they definitely stand out, but the design is such that it’s eye-catching without being obnoxious! Love!

image

Room Essentials Textured Rubgy Duvert Cover Set $29.99-$49.99 @ Target

The color grey. It’s my love language. I immediately am drawn to it in every store I walk into – clothes, furniture, everything. It drives my husband crazy! Haha! I love this bedding: grey, stripes, texture. My three favorite things in ONE place! I think this would be gorgeous in any bedroom, maybe a guest room even?? Casual but chic. Doesn’t get better than that!

Like I said, such great finds this week! I want them alllllllll!! Did you shop anywhere spectacular this week? What kind of pieces and elements are you drawn to? I’d love to hear from you!  :)
