Recent home update – My 70’s inspired slice of Texas

Hey guys!  I recently decided it was time to make a few little home updates here in my cozy, retro inspired house.  My family and I live in a small house located in Dallas, Texas.  It was built in the 1950’s and not any bigger than 1,500 sq ft, so it’s fairly inexpensive when it comes to making little changes here and there.  The lack of space can be a challenge but there is something so charming and quaint about a small house that is decorated just the way you like.

I wanted my home to feel like me.  You know what I mean?  Just like your clothing, I feel your home should sort of be a reflection of you and your style.  So naturally, I went for a 70’s inspired, Bohemian vibe.  I really wanted it to feel like you were stepping into one of those San Diego bungalows….and I think you definitely get that feeling now!

A simple way to update your living room?  Change up your throw rug and add some greenery!  I am a minimalist when it comes to decorating, so I try to keep things simple and always tell myself that less is more.  My tufted area rug is from Urban Outfitters and I went with the 5×8 since my coffee table (and living room space in general) is on the smaller side.

My potted faux fern is so gorgeous and just $25…such an affordable piece that makes a huge statement!

As far as my little bedroom goes, I wanted it to look like you’re stepping into bohemian heaven… aka, a jungle.  I added more greenery around my mirror and it added so much!  The greenery is also from Urban Outfitters and is part of a decorative faux vines set for just $14.  My triangle shelf is just $8 and was the perfect little addition to the wall over my bed.

I’m obsessed with these printed tin candles — they smell SO good and are 2 for $20 right now.  My distressed check duvet set is under $70 (I have a queen sized bed) and would look amazing with any decor since it’s such a simple and classic print.

Can’t forget the boys’ bathroom update.  With a small bathroom, the trick is to just change out the shower curtain and bath mat and voila!  New bathroom.  I wanted it to be cute and fun and unique, so I HAD to have this “GET NAKED” bath mat.  It’s $34 and the quality is amazing.  This banana print shower curtain is so fun and under $40!

Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
