Don’t just enjoy springtime while outside. These finds bring springtime, flowers, love, and all that fun stuff inside as well!
As an interior designer by trade, my home and the ambiance I create within it, are sacred. I have spent all my years as a mother and wife striving to make our homes places of sanctuary, hope, and brightness. As a mother of 4 active and creative children, and during various times of financial uncertainties, that goal often felt extremely lofty. I have, however, been consistently blessed (since 1984 at least) with the ability to creatively renew spaces thanks to my go-to home-renew, T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods.
It is no coincidence that I have chosen to launch this blog now, at the onset of another beautiful Salt Lake City spring, because fresh starts are what this season is all about. Spring is renewal. Renewal of nature. Renewal of hope. Renewal of really anything you want to bring new life to. This spring, for me, is about taking what I create and sharing it in a far different way than I ever have before.
So here is your official introduction to me, your resident MaxxAddict. Within this blog, I will share glimpses into my home (and potentially the homes of others) of the renewal I have been able to create. Similarly to when it comes to renewing our personal lives, we don’t need to get rid of everything and start completely new. We can (and should) keep the best parts of ourselves and homes and simply add what we can to make them better. My hope is that as you follow MaxxAddict, you will find new ways to make your life, homes, relationships, and attitudes just a little bit brighter!
My first MaxxAddict project was to freshen up my daughter’s high school room. For Christmas, I always try to gift my daughters an identical home accessory. This year, I fell in love with the beautiful starburst mirror (positioned above her bed) and chose that as their gift. With the new mirror in place it made all the sense in the world to give her room a bright new look to match both the mirror and her beaming personality – sponsored post 😉
Home Goods pulled through big time with their selection of bright and fun patterned pillows. I had a hard time deciding on just 6 of them! In the end, the 6 I chose worked perfectly.
I should mention that it is these 6 pillows that I will be — GIVING AWAY — once MaxxAddict reaches 500 followers on Instagram and on the blog! (see more giveaway details at the end of this post).
If you don’t win, however, here are the details of each pillow for you to find in your local TJ Maxx and Home Goods:
Floral Embroidered Pillows by World Traveler [$24.99 each], Red and Cream Geometric Velvet Throw Pillows [$19.99 each], Blue Ikat Patterned Pillow by Spencer Enterprises [$19.99], Ocean Blue Velvet Pillow With Knotted Corners by Devi Design [$19.99]For the side of her bed, I decided to remove the two heavy nightstands she had and replaced them with just one more modern nightstand. Round Top Wood and Iron Nightstand by Artisan In India [$49.99] with a simple tall Woven Night Stand Basket [$12.99] underneath. I adorned it with a Visual Comfort lamp (not purchased at T.J. Maxx – but they do carry this brand!) and some small decor items – Mirrored Star Candle Holder [$7.99] and Wooden Bowl [$7.99 for a set of 2] with added fresh reindeer moss. You will see a lot of different greens throughout my designs as I love to add touches of fresh life in all settings.To the right of the nightstand, I added this fun and COMFORTABLE Patchwork Pouf by World Traveler [$69.99]. What I love most about this pouf is detail you cannot quite see in the images – it has crochet appliques on top of some of the designs to give it a much more dimension and interest.Linen Journal by Eccolo [$5.99] – T.J. Maxx always has a great selection of journals, notebooks, etc. I loved this simple linen one.To top it all off, I was so excited to find this 16-Sided Beveled Mirror [$16.99] to compliment the look of the sunburst mirror that started this all. It’s a much smaller (and cheaper) version but it is still a great decor option to have in ANY room.
I absolutely love how fresh and vibrant this room turned out. Especially because this little makeover cost me a fraction ($350) of the retail price ($600)! With savings and looks like these, I feel just fine admitting that I am most definitely an addict.
If you like anything in the posts that aren’t a part of the giveaway, let me know and I will be sure to alert you to similar finds in the future. Or, hopefully, the information I have provided will be of aid to you as you try to find these items in your local store. If you are a fellow MaxxAddict you know that T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods carries products and designs from over 16,000 vendors so you might not be able to find everything we have posted here but I will do my best to provide you with as many details as possible. Happy Spring, MaxxAddicts!
