When You Least Expect It.

Yesterday I just had to get out of the house. I needed a break from unpacking and writing check after check to repair people. Luckily, we live close to a Super Target and a TJ Maxx. I wasn't expecting to find anything, but then again, I always manage to find great stuff when I'm not looking. Never when I actually need it. Isn't that life for ya?

Introducing my new office chair! I've seen variations of this chair before in TJ Maxx and shared it with you guys { here }, but I absolutely adore this version. It's graphic and yet subtle, elegant and yet fun. It will make the perfect jumping off space for designing our home office!

My favorite part is definitely the nail-head trim. And the zebra pattern. And the dark wooden legs. Who am I kidding? I'm obsessed with it all. And the best part? Oh, that would be the price tag. It was on clearance for $99. I can't figure out why they marked it down, but I'm guessing it was just to make my day. It worked.

I also snagged this cute little bowl to hold our keys by the entryway. It was also on clearance, for $3. I didn't even realize it matched the chair until I was in the check-out line. I guess I had a thing for gray zebra print yesterday.

I have to say, as crazy as we've been with all these house repairs, we still love it. Every step, even buying a small bowl, takes us closer to making this place really feel like home. Cheers to that!

Tomorrow I'll share a couple easy projects that can help you better organize your home. The first step to a well designed home, is to have a well organized home!
