Buying nice home decor is enough of a challenge, but sometimes styling it once you get it home can be even harder. Being able to style decor is what can take your house from plain to instagram worthy. Some people have a natural gift to make things look pulled together, but for some, it’s a challenge.
This guide will help you style any type of side table– from an console table to a night stand. The styling principles can also be used for just about any part of your home.
Over the last few years of owning my home, I have crafted my home from being a broke 23 year old trying to decorate with a budget of $0, to finally being able to invest more into intentional decor pieces. I’m still all about that budget life, but it’s enjoyable to be able buy things instead of just piecing together hand-me-downs.
I’ve finally been able to create my own personal style in my home, and wanted to share my top tips for creating a stylish space.
One of the biggest and longest projects I’ve done in my house has been my kitchen remodel. I touched almost every part of the kitchen– from the walls, to the cupboards, counters, and the floor.
The goal of the project was to embrace the midcentury style of the kitchen, but refresh it in a modern way. I wanted to keep the original birch cupboards as-is and design the room around them. I also wanted to brighten up the space to give it a more open and airy look. Finally, I wanted to add my own personal touch on it, to make it feel like it fits my home, and isn’t just a copy paste from something on pinterest.
Pinterest is full of amazing home inspo, but it can also be full of style “rules” that people think they have to follow in their own space. The truth is, each space is unique and there is not set of rules that applies to everyone’s space or personal style.

It’s always so refreshing to take down all of the holiday decor clutter and start with fresh decor. This year, my christmas tree was so dead that I had to take it down the day after Christmas and decided to pack up all of the holiday decorations along with it. It was nice to take the time to neatly put away everything (and even label the boxes!).
Since it’s still winter in Minnesota, I felt like I couldn’t come out with full-fledge spring decor. I stuck to more of a minimalist look grounded in white with a few hints of spring.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared photos of my home! Right now, I am in full fall decoration mode, but will be moving onto holiday decor soon. I always buy decor on clearance after the holiday, so I can’t wait to dig out what I put away last year!
