REINCARNATION: Breakfast Nook

I really love the idea of a breakfast nook. It may stem from the fact that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and I can imagine nothing more luxurious than milling over the paper with breakfast and coffee in a gorgeously decorated nook. Hello? Doesn’t this sound delightful, people?!

REINCARNATION: The Office Chair

I do all of my work (school, blog, work-work) in my giant comfy bed. But I have always wanted a beautiful desk/office space to really get things done! I found a lot of unique office space inspirations, that had a common thread to their unique-ness… THE CHAIR! The throne, I would like to call it, is the cherry on top to any office space. The great thing about this is that there are a lot of AFFORDABLE options at IKEA.

Here are my office inspirations.

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: VivaTerra

I decided to do a weekly website feature because I feel like I am always looking on the same home goods websites for inspiration and products [West Elm, Potterybarn, Wayfair, Overstock, etc.] So I wanted to branch out and challenge myself to find new websites or companies that sell great products and a great price. The first one I found is VivaTerra.com! They offer a wide variety of home goods for any room in the house, plus they promote made in the USA products and many of their items are made from recycled products.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

Here are a few [definitely not all] inspiring products that VivaTerra offers on their website:

This is their Tree Of Life bed retailing for around $3000. A serious splurge for this girl on a budget but its so unique it really does seem worth it as a statement piece.
