Snooping On Etsy: Beautiful Sconces

Who wouldn’t want nice sconces in their home? I know I would, so I headed to Etsy to research what they got in this department. As always, Etsy didn’t dissapoint. There are so many beautiful alternatives from modern minimalist brass to antique colorful options. Ideally, I will get a black variety for our master bedroom, to position on each side of the bed.

In this search, I only looked for electric options but there are also plenty of different sconces for candles, which I think are also charming and beautiful.

The nice perk about most Etsy products is that they come in many varieties and can be individualized by sending a request to an Easy owner. If you see something you like, but it doesn’t perfectly fit 100% what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to contact the shop and see what they can do for you.

Here are my final choices, of all colors, styles and prices. Let me know what do you think.

Snooping On Etsy – Wallpaper For The Nursery
As you might know, I have been working on my kids’ bedroom for the last couple of weeks trying to get it ready for the One Room Challenge.

Re-decorating a room takes a lot of research – my pin board for the room has hundreds of images. I had to make decisions about color, wallpaper, art, bed, dresser, etc.– you get the picture. This knowledge should not die with me! But it should be shared with others that might want to update their kids’ room.

Let us start with the wallpaper.

Choosing the right wallpaper for the bedroom was the hardest decision I had to make and it took the longest time. I did a lot of research to find the right one. Here is a post I wrote about wallpaper options I was looking into some months ago. ended up choosing the Underwater Word (Deep Blue) from Hygge & West because of the dark navy color and copper finish. Hygge & West was nice enough to give me a 20% discount because of being a participant in the challenge. It cost me $320 to get the wallpaper. I bought 4 rolls. It looks AWESOME, guys. Really, everybody that has seen it loves it. My kids love it, I love it, my friends love it. I am SO happy with the decision, which is comforting because I was afraid that in reality it wouldn’t look as good as in my imagination, but there was no reason to fear. The wallpaper looks great!

After writing that first post about wallpapers for the nursery, I kept on searching for more alternatives on Etsy – one of my favorite online places to find cool stuff. There, I found a huge quantity of beautiful papers for the bedroom. Keep in mind that most of these wallpapers come in different colors and sizes, so you can custom made almost all of them!

Here are my favorites (this list took hours and hours of research to put together, so I hope it helps you save time in the future):  Dreamy Wall – Rousseau’s Dream Tropical Dreamy Wall – Summer Land Super – Vinyl Dreamy Wall – Forest Fantasy The Olivia Design – The Giraffe Southern Shades Home – Jane Churchill Winnie and Livettes – Watercolor Cactus Wall Truck Paper – Vintage Dream Wall – Winter Wall Play – House Southern Shades Home – Manuel Canovas L’ Southern Shades Home – Schumacher Plays – Striped Seamless Sian Zeng – Dino Wallpaper Midas Wallpaper Fabric – Imperial Wall In Wall – Spring Pop Decors

Snooping On Etsy – Holiday Décor

Holiday décor is beautiful! I like buying decorations the day after Christmas and save them for next year. This practice has saved me hundreds of dollars, while allowing me to buy gorgeous stuff from expensive stores with a 75% discount tag. I am so thrifty! And I feel so proud when I get these deals! I almost feel like I am outsmarting the system, until I go to the stores and realize that a lot of the decorations I wanted are sold out. Darn! Catch 22, people, Catch 22.

While I wait for these discounts to happen, I indulge on Etsy. There is great Holiday décor on Etsy, and it is nice to know you are helping small businesses while you shop.

Here are some of my favorites Holiday decorations from this site:

Plaster Pinecone Decoration – Kuber Store – $ Tree Decor – Reclaim The Shed -$ Christmas Ornament -Fairy Folk – $ Tree Decoration – Flora Sense – $ Decorations – Prince Design UK – $ Tree Table Top – Flora Sense – $ Tree Decorations – Julie Collings – $ Snowflake Ornament – Timber Green Woods – $ Tabletop Decor – Lobelle shop – $20 Tree Ornament – Soft Concrete Diamond Ornament – Ink Bandit – $ Cooper Ornament – Bookity – $ Polar Bear Ornament – Wild Whimsy Woolies – $ Dove Decorations – Prince Design UK – $

Snooping On Etsy – Woven Wall Hangings

Woven Wall Hangings are a thing. If you don’t believe me, look at these pictures. Coco + Sponge

Bohemian Diesel

Cute, don’t you think? A little rustic, a little sophisticated, and, a lot unpretentious.

It is not easy to find the perfect piece to decorate your wall. Pictures are obviously a good start, but you need to add other kinds of decorations to spice your home up. At least, that is why I like to do. A woven or macramé wall hanging is a great place to start. They are trending, they are beautiful, they can use a lot of wall space, and, they add texture to your home, which is something so many of us forget to do.

So, in my search for beautiful things around the web, I decided to look on my best shopping friend website, Etsy, where I found a lot of shops with beautiful handmade wall hangings, as expected.

Here are my favorite shops, if you know of another one, let me know! I would love to hear. A lot of these shops will customize a wall hanging to your needs, in case you want something more specific.

Of course, if you are up for a challenge, you can do your own woven wall hanging. Here is how.

Now, to that shop list:

What I See A Lot On Pinterest – Teepee In The Nursery

Are you a mother of a small child or soon to be one? Well, then you better have a teepee in your nursery or you should go and buy one right about now if you want your nursery to be featured anywhere else than your personal Facebook page. Right now, it is all about Native American décor with a twist (what I call gentrifying Native American art). Just type nursery in your Pinterest account and 90% of the pictures will have some kind of teepee in a corner.

What is the attraction of the teepees? Well, kids love hiding and parents love when they do, so it is a win, win situation, unless the child wants you to crawl into that tiny space and read him/her some books in a very uncomfortable position, in which case you should bring up your old age, and explain in basic words why your back pain kicks in when laying on the floor in any yoga position. After one minute of explanation, your child WILL give up (I have tried it). He or she will decide that it is more fun to go inside the teepee by him/herself (or with sibling in tow) than hearing all that aging nonsense.

So, there you go, I am not only giving you great design advice, but I am also giving you clear guidelines to be a better parent, all in one blog spot. Small steps, people. Small steps.


If you are sold and have decided to buy what is also known as a tipi, here are some of your options:
