I ran across this article on twitter from POPSUGAR and the first thing I thought was “oh no! I hope I have all these things!” given that I’m a smidge over 30 wink- wink.
Take a look. “30-somethings” how do you stack up? If you don’t have all these things… no worries. It’s a fun list to read through nonetheless.
1. A Nice Sofa
Sofas come in so many different price ranges. You can find something stylish and comfy at Value City Furniture. You don’t have to spend a ton if it’s not in your budget. It’s more about style. I would recommend choosing a sofa in a neutral color and then add cute pillows from Home Goods or Etsy. Home Goods seems to always have a good selection and display their pillows according to color which makes picking out your favorite colors a cinch. You may also find some unique ones on Etsy too. Definitely worth a look.
2. Quality Linens
I can’t remember when I paid the full price for a higher quality thread count sheet set? Keep an eye out at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond & once again Home Goods. I really like white sheets. Just me?
3. A Timeless Rug
This girl loves a cow hide rug (faux too)! I have 2 like the one shown in the article. I was in IKEA over the weekend and they had cowhide rugs on sale for $169. I was REALLY trying to figure out if I needed another one.
4. Quality Dinnerware
I finally got an all white setting for 8 from Target. Classic, makes your food look amazing…Boom.
5. A Signature Scent
One of my dearest friends gave me a candle for my birthday last year that I L-O-V-E. It’s called “flannel” and it’s described as a mix of bergamot, mahogany and a delicate veil of musk. I keep it right by the front door.
6. Something Antique
I have been on a huge antique furniture kick lately! I’m on my 3rd chair. They’re all stored at my parents’ house. Pretty sure I can’t bring anything else there.
7. A Headboard
I actually need a headboard for my guest bed. Guilty!
8. A Piece of Silver
I have a really cool silver vanity set that my uncle gave me. I need to get it out and polish it.
9. Meaningful Art
Umm, hello! Does “Raynee + color” count?! If you’re looking for some meaningful art I can help you out with that (shameless plug =)
10. Fresh Flowers
My favorite place to get fresh flowers is Trader Joes. They have the best lilies in my humble opinion and their prices are very reasonable.
Thoughts?! What would you add?
Hope you’re having an awesome week so far!
