Happy Wednesday! Who else loves to make pretty things that have zero purpose except to bring them joy and hopefully bring someone else joy, too?! Because that's what the majority of this blog and my YouTube channel is (#yas). I was feeling a bit inspired and decided I wanted to curate another cutesie of a room (see my last two here and here). This quirky compilation I threw together features bohemian, eclectic, and a tinge of jungalow style using strictly vintage goodies. One of my favorite sites to browse for inspiration is chairish.com. They curate beautiful vintage items from vendors around the world and organize them in such a fantastic way. I can get lost scrolling through each page! Seriously, check it out. I will say that the majority of the items I find on Chairish are out of my budget, however, I believe that it's possible to gather inspo and search in your own backyard (aka city) for similar pieces. I understand that each of these pieces are valued and it's a joy for me to learn about so many different cultures and decades just perusing through their website. You should hop on the Chairish train. There's plenty of room!
As you might have noticed in past and present posts, I really love brass/gold + greenery. I'm on my own little journey of plant nurturing/keeping them alive but that blog post is for another day. I really loved pulling the blush, orange and pink tones together and adding eclectic accessories to this "story" (that's what we'll call these random room compilations, coo?). There's a bit of a jungle theme in this story as well, similar to my last one, and this is brought in from the greenery, the hand painted cheetah and the animal scene painting. Not sure why I'm so drawn to little cheetah sculptures but I am?!?! TBD.
Although Daniel and I have been in our apartment since February (#bless), there are soooo many unfinished spaces in our home. It's super frustrating at times because I just want everything to look cool and complete but I try to remind myself that it's okay not to be fully put together. Truth be told, we love spending our money on experiences! So I'm fine with this for now.
What's your favorite addition to a space? Mine would have to be adding a wink of "random" around the house. I have such a dorky personality (hint, I watch regular show weekly and can't get enough bob's burgers) and I love adding some comic relief to my home. There are two handmade pieces of art in my bathroom that state "Oui, Oui" and "ICUP". Get it? No? Oh dear.

I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
