Burlap provides a great caramel color and adds texture to any room. Here are just a few of many ideas for your home. Maybe you wont want to snuggle up on the pillow, but it definitely adds an awesome look.
Vintage maps are fun and affordable decorating ideas. I recently found a map of the Pacific Ocean that has “Caroline Islands” (my name) written in the middle. It also shows where my grandfather was stationed in WWII. This is definitely going to be art for my new home. I’m searching for the perfect frame, but hope it has the impact these maps have!
I recently purchased an adorable teal kitchen scale from an antique store. As of now, it is sitting on my kitchen shelf waiting for a purpose, so I decided to explore some options and found these brilliant ideas!
I’m loving my collapsible wire baskets. The first one I purchased at a flea market and plan to use as a hamper because it has legs and will be great for transporting clothes to an outdoor clothesline. The other is from CB2 for $39.95 and will be used for blankets in my living room.
Vintage shade outdoors – what a wonderful idea and colorful way to brighten up the patio. Just get a strand of large lightbulb lights and find some adorable shades – simple simple! Another thing to add to the “when a get a house” list.

Ottomans are not the cheapest piece of furniture out there, so why not try out a cheap alternative. Buy a coffee table with unique legs, add a big piece of foam, and pick out amazing fabric to place on top as though you are covering a chair seat. Such a perfect option when you are looking to find the fabric that fits!
