Andrew and I still don’t have bedroom furniture. It’s a little scary to think that we have been in this apartment for 6 months with a mattress (on the floor), a dresser, a TV, two lamps, and a vanity in our bedroom. We have no bed frame, headboard, or night stands. I think it’s time to get going on that, and I’m collecting a ton of inspiration so that we can get started. We need to make sure that whatever we get is functional as well as pretty though and I think that’s where I’ve been stuck! But once I discovered Z Gallerie I’ve been all over their bedroom section. There are a TON of really pretty options that actually work for our lives; like this nightstand (love the tray that slides out). Looking at these inspiration photos I pulled, I’m thinking the Z Gallerie options will work just fine!
The site is looking much better today, huh? We are almost done with the coding and I couldn’t be more excited! Another thing making me excited is Zara Home being available online! As an avid Zara shopper, I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time. London has had Zara Home stores for a while now and I’ve been waiting for one to pop up in NYC, but online is even better. Especially with free shipping in the month of October.
Zara will always be my go to for basic apparel… especially dresses, blazers, and clutches. But now it’s my go to for home decor as well. You can always count on them to have something for everyone. Here are my top 5 Zara Home must haves. Happy shopping!
After seeing my initial inspiration post, and another one, and then my inspiration boards you guys all already know what the plan was for our new apartment. Maybe it’s because I prepared you guys for a month and a half but I feel obligated to share photos (or maybe I just really want to). Typically I’m a perfectionist that wouldn’t allow photos until I actually felt like something was 100% finished. But, I love this living room! It’s far from finished and even farther from perfect, but it came together nicely and it was nice to relax here last night after the initial moving day stress was over. Granted, the other rooms are even less finished. Our bed is on the floor, we are using boxes as night stands, and nothing is where it should be. BUT we have each other, and a super cute couch that I can’t get over. Things will slowly start coming together and it’s going to be a really exciting time for us. I’m sure to be posting more photos on instagram soon, so you should follow me @glitterandgoldblog.
I’ve been slowly buying home pieces from West Elm and Anthropologie just waiting for the day when I will be able to use them again. When I had my own place, my style was confused. My bedroom looked amazing but the rest of the apartment looked so disjointed. I truly believe a home is a direct reflection of your personal style, or your style as a couple. Well… next time, whenever that may be, I’m so ready! Here is some of my home decor inspiration. I have to force myself to only use one image of Bri Emery’s loft but I just want to make sure you all know that if I could clone it and move it to the East Coast it would be mine too!
