My HomeGoods Stylescope

I received a nice email the other day from someone at HomeGoods talking about there new “Stylescope” personalities.  Want to take the quiz?  It’s super easy and it was my style 100% right now.  Loved that.  I always have fun taking these kind of quizzes.  They asked me to spread the love, so let’s check out what my Stylescope is.
{I did not get perked to do this in anyway}
You just have to pick 5 images and you get your style personalty back.
My style is “Set Sail” with a touch of BOHO.  This is my style right now.  I would say that my style is Transitional Coastal Cottage.  Well I’m mostly Transitional right now, but I am trying to change it slowly to Transitional Coastal Cottage.  Our Family room is already this style and now I’m trying to add the “Coastal Cottage” part into the rest of our home.
The funny thing is that I already have that white vase at the bottom right corner of the above picture, I have star fish, driftwood, coral, seashells, seaglass and even some of those glass fishing buoys.  So I guess I already have a lot of “coastal cottage” in my home already, but I know I need more in each room.  Just bringing in a little bit into each room will make me very happy.

The quiz tells you what your style means and how to even get that style.

I so have to try the centerpiece for the dining table.  Check out under “how does set sail entertain?”.  If you can’t read it, it says “display a collection of seashells and smooth stones in an ombre pattern as a centerpiece for your dining table”.  Oh yes please!!!  Ombre and seashells and seaglass…I’ll take it.  I think it would be fun to make this happen.  Now I will have to find pieces to use that I already have and I might have to buy some new pieces.  Such a fun idea on a table.  I will have to find a cute little tray for it as well.  Oh I guess I’ll be off to HomeGoods yet again for some more decor.  πŸ˜‰

The quiz also gives you a Pinterest board to follow of your style and of course you can follow all of the style boards for HomeGoods on Pinterest.  And they even throw in a blog that has the same style as you.  Great inspiration!!!

I would love to hear what your style is, so please leave me a comment and tell us all about it.  Was it your style?  Did you get any new ideas from it?  Let’s talk about it!!!
Thanks for stopping by everyone!!!  Have a great weekend!!!  :)

A HomeGoods Shopping Spree

I was so excited with what I bought of this shopping spree that I wanted to share that with you first.

I wanted some new outdoor planters for around my gazebo.  I wanted to add texture and style to what I already have outside.  You can check that out here if you want to see what I already have around the gazebo.  I need to take some updated pictures once I get some plants into these planters.  I have lots of styling that I want to do with the gazebo, but it can’t all take place at once.  Budget is always in mind.  πŸ˜‰

Let’s take a closer look at each of the planters.  I absolutely loved this planter for it’s color and texture.  It just called out to me.
This pretty one just called out my name.  I have been loving yellow lately and really wanted to add more yellow to our outdoor space.  It makes me smile.
I also wanted a planter with some graphic shapes on it.  I love the free hand design of this one.  Plus blue is one of my favorite colors if you couldn’t tell from my house already.  πŸ˜‰
I have been looking for a new set of sheets for awhile now and I found this awesome geographic design one at HomeGoods.  And I love grey.
For years now I have wanted some Japanese Fishing Glass Balls.  You can check out loads of Google images of these fishing balls here.  They actually come in all different shapes, colors and sizes.
I finally bought some faux coral.  I have always loved beachy decor and now I have found a way to add just a little into my home.  I have a few nautical pieces around the house as well.  Some really old pieces from my Grandma’s house too.  Love mixing the old with the new.
Here is a better look at the glass fishing balls.  I just love the rope netting that is around each one as well.  It gives great texture to the smooth glass.
Of course I had to figure out an awesome place to display the glass fishing balls and then I saw this lovely distressed wire basket.  I love the look.  Sort of reminds me of fishing cages.  I’m going to add some fish netting to the bottom of the basket and I will probably use this as my centerpiece on my Dining Room table for now.
Of course I needed a new table runner for the Dining Room table then.  I think I see a new tablescape coming up soon.  I have to pull some stuff together and see what works best.  Not sure if these flowers will work well with the fishing balls and the basket.  We shall see.  I have to play around with a few ideas first.
Gorgeous right?  Love the blue/green/yellow combo with a touch of brown.
Now onto my pictures that I took while shopping.  I had to give you more eye candy then just what I bought that day.  I want to apologize first for the bad cell phone pictures.  It’s what I had with me for this trip.

This dinnerware set was a nice light blue.  It was gorgeous in person.  Looks like hand made pottery.

I told you I love blues and these vases were just calling out to me.  I need like 10 house so I can buy everything I want from HomeGoods.  haha
I believe this was some sort of laundry hamper.  Nothing too big, but it was pretty in person.
Here we have the outdoor section.  I could have bought some many things from this section.  I know I have to stop just looking at the blue decor.  haha.  It’s just such a calming color to me and I’m always drawn to it.
Here were all of the glass fishing balls….I only bought three of them.  πŸ˜‰
These chairs were gorgeous.  The turquoise color in person was to die for.  Gorgeous glossy white trim.  Wish I had a place in my house for them.
Some gorgeous lamps.  These lamps were so cool.
Lots and lots of ottomans.  So many to look at.  Some great prices too.
I wish I had a place in my home for this Ikat ottoman.  Gorgeous…just gorgeous!!!
Love the legs on this ottoman!!!
Hello pillows and more pillows and more pillows.  HomeGoods always has a great selection.
I thought these glasses were so cute.  The word “water” was etched in the top of these glasses.
And if light blue/green glasses aren’t your thing, they have these gorgeous jewel tone glasses too.
OK, who is into Sangria?  I’m lovin’ it right now.  Of course you can use these drink dispensers for ice tea or lemonade.  πŸ˜‰
They had a whole isle just for melamine glasses and plates.  Great for summertime.
Now lets look at some kids stuff.  Lots of pillows and baskets.
Lots of fun stuff for kids.
Isn’t this little girls chair adorable?
If ever looking for baskets, they have lots and lots of them in every size, type and shape.
All I can say about these chairs is “Oh My Gosh…GORGEOUS”!!!  I was drooling and wished I could take them home with me.
Can’t forget about their lamp section.  Always an area to drool over.  These are just some of what HomeGoods carry.
Well that was the end of my shopping spree.  So who has been to HomeGoods recently?  What did you buy?  What did you drool over?  I’m extremely lucky to have around 5-6 stores in my area.

Thanks for stopping by everyone!!!  Have a great day!!!  :)
