I’ve found one of my favorite ways to relax is to search for furniture for a house I don’t own and put together mood boards. My house is not on the coast, but if it was, these are some of my fave things that I would be putting in my cart. This dining room table is a great dupe for my current dining table from William’s Sonoma Home so I guess I wouldn’t be changing that much, haha!! I am a sucker for raw, slightly worn woods paired with rustic greenery. And vintage rugs (or faux vintage) just adds such a touch of warmth and creates that “lived in” look so you don’t feel like you are living in a museum. Oh, pro tip for shopping for rugs that you want to look way more expensive than they are (hopefully) – stick with natural materials like wool. The man made materials like viscose break down much faster and have a sheen to them that is a dead giveaway that it is not actually vintage. Happy shopping!
I'm Alexis - the goofy chic behind Curio Press. We just built a house in St Louis, MO and I am juggling being a mom, wife, small biz owner, and trying my best to get this house to look like a home. If that wasn't enough I battle chronic autoimmune issues everyday. I'm so glad to have you along for this crazy journey!
