Shop Love: J. Crew

There’s been quite a bit of chatter in the design world about the possible future of a J. Crew home line, and from the looks of their website, it might be a real possibility. They only have a few items in the “Home and Gifts” section at the moment, but hopefully they will launch a full line sometime soon! I picked out a few favorite accessories below in the meantime.

Shop for all of these items here.

This is the second post in the Shop Love series, but I plan to make it a regular feature of Studio Style Blog! Stay tuned for more Shop Love posts in the future to find stylish home decor and accessories. 

Year One: Bedroom Updates

Saving the best for last: I think this area has seen the most change since move in day and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dividing the space off with a rug and curtains was a great solution to separate the space and make it feel less like a studio. Thanks for following along with this series! It was fun to take a look back at how far this apartment has come over the last year.

Look for Less: Ikat Slipper Chair

My love for Ikat knows no bounds. These gorgeous chairs are perfect accents to a living room or bedroom. Slipper chairs are great for small apartments or can be used in groups in a larger space… but they do add up quickly. Fortunately, I found a great deal for this edition of Look for Less.
