WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Loaded Trunk

I spend so much time (some might even say too much time) looking for new home decor websites with stylish items, quality products, and great deals. I found Loaded Trunk.com when I was shopping around the web for my REINCARNATION: Tribal Print Rugs post.

This website sells everything from rugs to wall art from all around the world. The website is based on items found while traveling and the concept of fair trade. If you want to learn more check out their amazing video and ABOUT ME page on their website. This means that most of their items are in limited quantities (this means don’t wait if you love something on their site) so you’re truly getting a unique piece for your home! Here are some of my favorite items they have right now…

This is the amazing Bolga Market Basket made in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana. They sell for $42 a piece.

Here are a few of favorite home-spiration images of people of have embraced and even added exposed copper pipes for an amazing look.

HOME-SPIRATION: Antler Decor

So with a freezer full of deer meat and a boyfriend who looks great in camo, I have come to realize that hunting will always be a part of my life. Surprisingly I am okay with this, partly because J.Crew just came out with some adorable camo items! But now that it is almost deer season I am really trying to score some amazing antlers! I found such great home-spiration photos for rustic chic looks involving antlers! Here are some of my favorites…

HOME-SPIRATION: Re-Worded

So I am the type of person that always likes to have quotes and words of wisdom surrounding me. I have quotes on my phone, desktop on my computer, and hanging on my walls. I love the idea of word art, so here are a few of my home-spirations of those who have incorporated great words or quotes or even letters in to their home decor…

REINCARNATION: Retro Appliances

Retro. So I am not super crazy about vintage items, but retro items I LOVE. I love new items made with a retro feel (mostly because I like the idea that I am the only one who’s owned the item and its going to work properly!) I’ve always loved colored appliances (I mean who doesn’t want a pink Kitchen Aid mixer?!) but I have recently fallen in love with the idea of retro appliances over the simple and classic stainless steel. Its a new way to spice up your kitchen and make your home so unique.
