It’s another beautiful Friday and I’ve spent my week working on a gorgeous install. I love being inspired while creating with my favorite things – soft shades of coastal blues and textured naturals in raffia and wicker! When working on my own living space or someone else’s, it’s so important to keep home essentials in mind because they’re the sugar and spice that give a home its personality. For this Friday’s Favorites, I’ll share some of my fun finds to inspire your own creative home design.

This Friday’s top find is this 7-piece blush dining set. This shade of pink is just lovely and the style has such a classy feel to it. If you’re wanting a smaller option for indoor or outdoor dining, a marble top bistro-style table would be the perfect addition, and you can pair it with these woven rattan dining chairs in sage or grey.

I am also loving this bright, yellow-striped sofa which has a cool, retro look to it, and it’s perfect for inside or outdoors. A white sofa would be a good option if you’re wanting more subtle seating and grab a patterned ottoman or two to add a little extra fun to your arrangement.

When it comes to lighting, I’m drawn to any option that has a raffia or wicker shade. Whether it’s a floor lamp or a table lamp, a natural shade adds such beautiful texture to your living space. Pendant lights, like this modern version of a candlestick lantern, are also great additions to help elevate and brighten a room!

I especially love adding light blue highlights to my living spaces. Whether it’s the simplicity of a pair of blue gingham and striped towels to hang in the kitchen, a Beautiful book to help decorate the coffee or end table, or a coastal blue wave duvet cover to dress up the bedroom, shades of blue help to encourage some much-needed calm around the house.

One of my other favorite home essentials is a wicker bar cart or rattan bar table because they’re so versatile and can be used in any part of your home. Store your bar cart with your favorite wine and drinking glasses or decorate it with a candle and a vase full of flowers to give it character. I also love placing a beautiful mirror above my bar cart to fill an empty wall and build on the space.

When deciding what essentials to use in your home, pick the items you feel drawn to most and the ones you know will add a little bit of charm to your home. And, if you need more inspiration to help you find the right essentials to fit your home, take a look at some of my favorite Serena and Lily finds, my Summer Home Refresh ideas, and the items I have in my own Living Room.
