2016 Gift Guides // The Minimalist

2016_giftguide_minimalist


First off – we hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, ours were wonderful 🙂

And secondly, Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we’re jumping right to Christmas! While we still can’t believe the holiday season is actually upon us, we can’t pretend it isn’t happening anymore…time is ticking!

We’re starting with the minimalist gift guide – for that person in your life that wants, simple, meaningful, thoughtful gifts that err on the side of handmade, sustainably produced and/or detail oriented. The minimalist doesn’t want much, but they want quality items that they can rely on. Be willing to spend a little more on the minimalist in your life for a piece they will cherish.

Reg’s office is relocating to their new building this morning and she has been on the lookout for updated items for her new spot — and because we’re as obsessed with decorating our cubicle as we are for our apartment, we thought we’d share some of our favorite office-sprucing pieces from around the web that can help organize and personalize your space!

Love Want Need // Patio Chair & Cocktail Glass

For us, summer time means a whole lot of what we like to call mega porch hang. Coined in the summer of 2013, the verb involves the act of lounging on a porch, patio, lawn, beach, etc, indefinitely. Often associated with hotdogs, cocktails, and sunglasses, mega porch hanging has become a fan favorite amongst millennials alike.

In order to achieve this high-level of lounging properly, one must do so in style. Thank goodness for retailers who help us so greatly with our endeavors!

Room Refresh // Minimal Bedroom

We’re spinnin’ off of our minimal living room feature from a while back with the bedroom version today! In case you forgot the basics, the key elements to this look are white on top of white, with some beige and wood grain, and more white. But you definitely can add a splash of color here and there if you’re feeling a little saucy. The root of this look focuses on stripping down from the unnecessary, and honing in on the lines and beauty of the individual statement pieces. The best part about this look? Fewer knick-knacks = fewer items for dust to build up on – yayy!
