Decorating with Pier1 Imports

Remember that time I won $1000.00 to Pier1 Imports?! AKA the best DAY EVER!  No honestly.. I will never forget when I found out the dining room picture had won the Pier1Love Contest.  We were all out to lunch (on Amelia Island) and I was casually checking my email when all of a sudden I was like "Whaaaaaat?!" I read the email over and over making sure I wasn't missing something!
There were two items I knew right away I wanted to purchase with the winnings.  The wicker coffee table trunk I had been swooning over for months and a new desk for my husband.  He had previously been using our old console table (that sounds bad but in all honestly it also opened up and doubled as a desk lol)  and with the remaining I would try to finish up the upstairs loft.
Well, I am happy to say I was able to do all that!  Each piece we picked out seemed so perfect for the room it was crazy.  Also I swear I didn't add it all up to be price point perfect but at the end I only went over $14! …

Affordable Beaded Chandeliers

Beaded chandeliers are so gorgeous and so unique! The very first thing I knew I needed in our new house was a beaded chandelier for the dining room! I think they go with all types of decor from farmhouse to beachy to rustic! I am so happy with ours (listed #4) and everyone that has come over since moving in November comments on it! The best part is I did not have to make a big splurge! Our chandelier was $240!  Make sure to check the dimensions on all these listed below because some are really large!!  This post contains affiliate links.

Be Our Guest....

It is summertime in Florida which means one thing...visitors! It's no surprise friends and family love to come down and visit for a summer vacation.  Making sure they feel welcomed and comfortable are super important! It is always a good thing to be the hostess with the mostess :)  
All that aside I am certainly a little over anxious this year because I finally have an actual guest room and guest bath! Since I recently finished the guest room I thought I would write up a quick little post about how you can prepare for any visitors this summer too!
Obviously rule #1.  Get the bed linens all laundered and fresh.  Including some new bath towels and wash cloths.  I found these plush striped towels at my local Marshalls and thought they looked super cute with the guest room theme. 

Make sure the guest room has a side table lamp as well as an overhead light.  This way in the evening if your guest wants to read they can do so without illuminating the whole room.

Have some bottled waters avai…
