Decorating Resources in Austin, TX

Times are fast and hot in Austin right now. 

There are over 153 people moving here every single day. That's insane. After two years, that's the equivalent of the entire UT Austin stadium full of people. And that's if the daily number doesn't go higher. 

With all the people, businesses and traffic coming to town, it can be a little overwhelming to go out and about nowadays. That's why it's more important than ever to have a calm, collected space. Like I always say, "success starts at home".

Here are some items I've found after exploring Austin last week that can be used to decorate and update your space in a flash.

 
 
 

Mermaid Pillow - from At Home (located in South Austin)

 How fun are these? The magic happens from hundreds of sequins sewn on sideways that have one color on front and other color on the back so that when you wave your hand across, abracadabra, the color changes! These are super trendy right now.

Light Fixtures- from Jaya Furniture (in Downtown Austin).

This light fixture is really great. It's neutral and textured so it could work in almost any space. The candelabra look has come back in the past year or so and brings a warmth coziness that would work perfectly in a formal dining or entertaining space. Jaya imports directly from places like Indonesia so they have one-of-a-kind pieces and have a warehouse worth of furniture behind the store. Visit Amy for an unforgettably pleasant experience.

Quirky, one-of-a-kind items - Austin Antique Mall

This is one of my go-to spots for unique home decor and to think out of the box. You can find anything from vintage furniture to oversize signs to knights of armor. Their eclectic arrangement always brings surprises.
