I’ve seen a lot of ‘Fixer Upper’

Our home is small.

It’s not a tiny house, which I would adore someday, but it is small.

And I’ve learned a lot of things from living in this small home of ours (and I’ve learned a lot of things from watching ‘Fixer Upper’ while baby naps!) One of those things is: clutter is a no-no, minimalism is the way to go.

Our home started out very colorful when we moved in, but I’ve transitioned it into a bright, neutral space that we just love.

I’ve taken everything off the walls and decluttered a lot, and it feels so great! And whenever and wherever we move, I have big “farmhouse style” plans. But while we are here, I’m enjoying my simple decor and I hope you do, too!

I’ve recently started macrame projects and I’m obsessed! Plus farmhouse style signs, wood triangles (mostly for my essential oil collection) and my blanket ladder are all little pieces that I just adore.

To top it all off, beautiful blankets and amazing rugs fill our home.

Lorena Canals Rug

This AMAZING rug from Lorena Canals rugs is just that…amazing! Not only is it gorgeous, stylish and perfect for our small space…it’s also machine washable (they fit into a standard washer and dryer.) With two dogs and a toddler, it’s hard to keep my rugs clean, so this is seriously perfect. And did I mention that they are SOFT! Z loves crawling and laying on this gorgeous rug. It’s very thick, which is nice if he takes a tumble, and the dogs enjoy sprawling out and taking a snooze right in the middle.

We have had an 8’x10′ area rug in our living room for the last three years, and I never realized how small it made our space look until I switched it out for this 4’8″x6’7″ bereber beige rug. It made our living room look so much larger, cleaner, modern and sophisticated! Wishing we had transitioned to a Lorena Canals rug so much sooner!

These are all handmade in India (and designed in Spain) so they’re all unique and beautiful. They are dyed with all natural dyes, and contain no VOCs like most carpeting and rugs do, as Lorena Canals is an environmentally responsible company. They are made from 100% natural cotton.

These rugs are loved by top celebrities and picked by Vogue as top baby product for celebrity nurseries! How cool is that?

They have a matching runner to this specific rug, which would be perfect for any hallway or skinny space, and this specific rug is available in beige or black.

These rugs are perfect for any home, adult space and especially great for sophisticated kids rooms and nurseries! Their website is stocked full of gorgeous choices that you’ll want to check out. All different shapes, styles, colors and designs, you’re sure to find [many] that you love! And don’t forget the non-slip underlay to keep your rug in place on your hardwood floors.

In addition to rugs, they have machine-washable cushions, gorgeous wall decor (I’ll take one of each please!!) and baskets and cozy blankets!

Plus, if you like to support companies that help others, the proceeds support the Saluka project, and provide schooling for children in India.

Y’all gotta get yourself a Lorena Canals rug. They’d make amazing Christmas gifts and would certainly bring a smile to anyone’s face that got to see this (and walk on this) in their home everyday!

Oh, and world-wide shipping, too.

Blanket basket + throw

This cute multi-purpose blanket basket from Design Imports India (DII) is perfect for my blanket obsession! This is the medium size basket, and I can fit 4 large blankets in it. Score! The perfect way to make the living room not look so cluttered. And this fun black and white cotton throw is perfectly stylish on my blanket ladder, and is perfect for cuddling up on the couch or sitting on during photo shoots!

Farmhouse Signs + Triangle Shelves

I came across this mom who makes amazing signs and shelves, and I just want to order them all! I custom ordered my farmhouse Tetelestai sign in Greek (which means “it is finished”–Jesus said this as he was dying on the cross) and I LOVE it. Such quality work and it’s simple beautiful with such meaning!

And her triangle shelves are amazing for a simple design as well. I stock my full of essential oils and I always get complimented on it! I’m truly grateful to be able to stay at home with our child(ren) so I can enjoy the beauty of our simple home.

When I watch Fixer Upper, I always have the notes on my phone open to my home “must-haves” and I fill it with little details for either this home, or our dream home. Thanks to Chip and Jo, our home will be a gorgeous mixture of modern farmhouse.

What are your favorite things to decorate your home with? Are you a minimalist at heart, too?
