The Little Things

One thing is true... I am terrible at "interior design." I'm beyond envious of what all you talented girls (and guys) can do with a room. I absolutely cannot come up with a vision. I have zero patience. And I can't really make up my mind on a style. Sometimes I think a plain white apartment would be clean, simple, and oh-so-perfect. And other times I'm ready to deck the halls like there's no tomorrow. (I've even decided that it would be awesome to have everything be some shade of pink.) I know what I like, but I really don't have the time to figure it all out nor the money to make things happen.

So instead, I'm focusing on the little things. ONLY the little things. I have to talk myself out of "projects" every week it seems like. (Mostly because I'll end up eating Ramen every day and working on the project between 2 and 4 in the morning.) And I'm focusing on things that I absolutely love. Some things I like, some I really like... and then there are those things that I love. The difference is between really like and love is seriously not being able to walk away.

These drawer pulls were an absolute L-O-V-E.

I went with the fox drawer pulls and they completely change up the entire TV stand. Even though they're small, they certainly make me happy.

The details are just super cute!

Hi there little guy!!!

What "little thing" have you added in your room that made a big difference?



  1. art! it's an absolute game changer when it comes to any room. the drawer pulls are adorable, great choice. :)

  2. Pretty trays from Sur La Table and candles from Yankee Candle :)

  3. So pretty! They remind me of the Tory Burch fox too :)


  4. I love love love the light blue typewriter! Where did you get it?!

  5. What a great idea! It's so simple, but makes a cute little statement.

  6. Love those drawer pulls!
    For me, the "little things" are about people saying "That's so YOU!" because it's so easy to do up a room with things that are "in" right now. But having things really personalized is the most important thing!

  7. Those are some cute drawer pulls, go well with the color of your entertainment stands!

  8. Anthropologie is the best place to find your inner-creativity. I actually did this with my IKEA dresser two years ago... took the drawer pulls right off and replaced them w/ Anthro knobs! I agree with you though, I'm not much of an interior design buff either, I just credit Pinterest and Anthro for my creativity!

  9. We lived in our home for a few years before I finally decided to really tackle the *look* of it. Focusing on the Little Things is how you're going to figure out what big changes you'll eventually want to make.

    Also, treat yourself to fresh flowers (or greenery of some sort) every week. They are an easy way to dress up the white walls without a huge investment of time or money. And you can pick them depending on your mood :)

  10. So adorable! Where did you get your typewriter in the corner? I love it! xxx

  11. It is amazing how much little touches can alter a space. They look great!
