I shared mine and Dave’s married home inspiration a few weeks ago, so today, I thought I’d share a few of the pieces we’ve picked out to get the look! I had a feeling I wouldn’t be living alone for much longer when I moved to North Carolina, so the only big pieces I invested in were a couch and a bed. When Dave moved here, we were already engaged and had a good idea of what our home might look like, so we’ve chosen many of the small pieces for his apartment with that in mind. Once I moved to the apartment he’ll join me in after we get married, we’ve really started having some fun adding to the space!
Couch, side table, horizontal striped pillow, teal arrows pillow, vertical striped pillow, bar stools, dish towels, wicker basket, white shelving unit, New York print, South print, bedding, candlesticks, bedside table
Most of these items are things he or I have already bought for our separate apartments, and will combine in a few months. A few are fun, sentimental details–I have a horseshoe on the gallery wall that I picked up at Uncommon Objects in Austin, and we’ve been collecting silver candlesticks for our wedding that quite easily double as decor in the meantime. There are also two investment pieces on this list that we’re saving up for and are excited to buy soon: our dream Restoration Hardware duvet cover, and two of those amazing West Elm nightstands! With the vast majority of our apartments outfitted in Target Threshold (which I love, but know it won’t last forever!), it’s pretty thrilling to be adding some “grown up” furniture to the mix. The nightstands are a perfect fit for our style, and even though their size might make our bedroom a little bit cramped (it’s a very strange shape), we’re confident that we’ll love them for years and will be more than happy to bring them with us to our next home!
What was your first piece of investment furniture? Do you still love it as much as when you bought it?
