When I shared my tips on how to style a bookshelf, I had an overwhelming amount of requests for more home decor tips! Since we live in an apartment, styling these little spaces is so important to making your home functional. After a year of living in Chicago, I finally put together our bar cart.

After chatting beauty, style, and 10 random things this move to Chicago has taught me, it only feels right to talk about home decor.

With summer almost over, I decided to finally get some outdoor entertaining items. Great timing, right? Yeah, I know. Matt’s been telling me about this since about February. In my defense, the weather in Chicago doesn’t allow for even thinking about outdoor dining until June. But that’s neither here nor there. See what we got and what you can find at Bed Bath & Beyond!
