It has been a long while since I’ve shared “A Day In the Life Of” post, so I figured it was time. While I was in Arizona making over Laurie Anne’s bedroom, we ran to her local HomeGoods for last minute accessories. We walk inside and she informs me she has NEVER been to a HomeGoods. Of course my jaw drops to the ground because it’s pretty close to her house and I assumed everyone knows and shops the treasures of HomeGoods, but apparently she had yet to discover it. Ha! All of that to say, we were in a time crunch, grabbed things for her bedroom makeover, and it left me wondering how my local store looked. I came home and made a trip to check things out and score some treasures for upcoming projects. Want to see what I found? Click through for an iPhone style post and follow me around the store! If you need white towels (pictured above), they’re always my go-to.

These pretty salad servers caught my attention right away. I love the hammered metal and warm wood handles. For $6- they were a steal!
While I was in the kitchen section, I found this pretty circular ceramic tray and I thought it would be really cute hanging on a backsplash or used on the countertop to organize salt, pepper, and oil.
Next, I ran into these wingback swivel chairs. The neutral color was really nice and the shape would work well with a modern or traditional aesthetic. I seriously considered them… as well as these:
I was really into the pair pictured above. These barrel back chairs also swivel and the fabric was gorgeous and textural in person. If I had a place for two chairs- or a better idea of how our formal living room will eventually unfold, I would’ve snagged them!
In the pillow department, I came across another one of these cushions. Do you remember it from our back patio? It’s a Ralph Lauren brand pillow, and although it isn’t outdoor- I love tossing it outside when we entertain.
The neutral and geometric pillow pictured above reminded me of the Thibaut cushions I have on our sofa (see this post). I didn’t get it since we already have similar ones, BUT then I noticed this color…
I snagged two of these for the guest bed. When shopping for cushions, I always consider the fabric and cushion insert- I prefer down and try to look for high-end fabric.
Next, I moved to the bath section. I love finding quality soaps at HomeGoods! You can find the best European selections. Not only do I love them in our house, but they also make great inexpensive gifts. I grabbed a bar soap set, as well as the hand soap:
Bonus points if you find soaps with gorgeous packaging. This one was $3 and I tossed it into my cart. Score!
I also found some really heavy bath mats. I grabbed a couple of these for our guest bathroom.
I’m a sucker for pretty jars for bath products and toiletries. I couldn’t say no to this glass jar filled with cotton swabs for $4.
I adore these tiny Kate Spade table lamps with tapered shades. You may or may not see one in Laurie Anne’s upcoming bedroom makeover I designed. I had to grab one for myself. I’m going to paint it a different color though. For $39, it was an easy decision.
I also came home with this tall (15″) vase. I stuffed a bunch of magnolia leaves into this baby and it’s the perfect simplistic centerpiece for our entryway table. You can’t go wrong with classic white ceramics.
I wish these blue ginger jars would’ve been in stock before I photographed our kitchen! This one was $15 and I paid around $85 for mine. Sigh.
It’s difficult to tell from the photo, but this woven tray was GIANT. It was around 25″ x 18″. This would make the perfect tray for an outdoor dining table. I kind of regret not buying it. Should I go back?
Lastly, was this classic white french press. I love my coffee and these look great styled at the coffee bar in a kitchen.
You can catch my tips for shopping discount stores, like HomeGoods, in this post! It’s really a good read. I try to avoid certain sections (the art section, the seasonal decor section, the candle section) and things like bad brass. Sometimes it can be tricky to determine what looks nice from what looks cheap.
