the 10
things that make a new house feel like home

As one part of the duo that makes up the lifestyle blog A Beautiful Mess, ELSIE LARSON makes it a point to surround herself with the things that us mere mortals can only aspire to. Elsie's talents lie in exceedingly inspirational craft, recipe, and beauty tips with a specialty in churning out charming home décor tricks. She got married last year and moved into a newlywed nest with her singer/songwriter husband Jeremy and has spent the past year redecorating like a madwoman. Naturally, we tapped her to tell us how she transformed a (brand new) house into a cozy haven.

Herewith, the 10 things blogger Elsie Larson relies on when decorating a new home.

  • 1

    Herman Miller Eames Rocking Chair

    Chair and seating in general are always so hard for me to commit to. But I knew I wanted a rocking chair for my
    guest (kids) room. I have a lot of nieces and nephews who visit often.

    Whiskey Stones

    My husband is a big scotch drinker but he doesn't like to dilute it with water (or ice cubes). So these whiskey
    rocks would be the perfect compliment for his growing scotch collection.

    West Elm Brights Tin Balsam Candle

    Keeping my new house smelling fresh and familiar is a
    big priority to me. I have candles burning morning, noon
    and night.

    West Elm Stripe Favorite Throw

    A home can never have too many throw blankets. I lovethem to cozy up with them on the couch or snuggle in bed while finishing up a few emails.

    Jonathan Adler Black Bridget Kilim Rug

    Rugs! I have all hard wood floors in my new home so I have been buying rugs like crazy. I love neutrals and things that are easy to keep clean (I have two dogs) but I can't resist beautiful graphic rugs

    IKEA Skagern Bathroom Shower Curtain

    A pretty shower curtain can add so much charm to a bathroom. They are necessary but can also function almost like wall paper or art.

    The Container Store Honey Jar & Dipper

    Love this little honey pot! Perfect little container because I love a little honey in my night time tea.

    West Elm Organic Chevron Duvet

    Pretty and cozy bedsheets are at the top of my list of home essentials. My husband likes it if I keep our bedding options a little more on the gender neutral side when it comes to colors. Ha!

    Nostalgia Electronics Retro Popcorn Maker

    I'm no gourmet chef, but having delicious snacks on hand for house guests is really important to me. I love this little popcorn maker. It looks like the perfect accessory for an at-home movie night!

    Missoni Home Collection Niles Bath Sheet

    There is nothing better than a warm bath and a fresh set of towels! I love the design of these Missoni ones.
