16 of My Favourite Home Items of All Time

I get a lot of questions when it comes to the decor in my home and while I know there are TONS of little items that everyone scopes out … I have to say, I definitely have some personal favourites! So, today I’m going to share 16 of my ALL TIME favourite home items with you!!

Every single one of these items below can be found either inside or outside our home!! They are items that I’ve really grown to love and appreciate and I’m excited to have them all for years and years to come!

Let’s dig right in!!

1. My Bed 

You all know just how much I love my bed … in fact, I think it’s one of the most photographed pieces of furniture in our home! LOL!! I partnered up with the team at The Cross Design & Decor and together we started designing my bed … we went through so many revisions and prototypes and finally … THEY NAILED IT!! I’m so in love with this bed and I’m still so happy with the colour I selected, which is DUSTY ROSE!

2. Hello Doormat

This is SUCH a cute and practical item for any home! I absolutely love the style and design of this doormat! This one tends to be on sale often (without sale pricing they range from $30 – $120 depending on size!) at Wayfair and they sell out FAST!! I’ve already ordered up another one because once this one wears out, I want to have a fresh one at the ready! LOL!

3. Wood Dining Chairs

These are the wood chairs we have in our dining room, I love how simple and classic they are! These are another item that tends to go on sale often at Wayfair, depending on the sale, sometimes you can snag a set of 4 for around $500!

4. Armchairs

I get a lot of questions about the armchairs we have in our living room!! I purchased them from Pottery Barn and I feel like they add a lot of personality and really complete the look of our living room!  To be honest, I don’t necessarily think they’re the COMFIEST chairs around but Justin ALWAYS falls asleep in them!! However, I will say that I absolutely love the LOOK of them!

5. Caitlin Wilson Rug

I LOVE my Caitlin Wilson rug in our living room! The colour and pattern are perfect for high traffic areas, it does SUCH a great job masking all of the wear and tear that’s happens in our home … such as Nacho’s muddy paws (and puke!), my wine stains and Leo’s spills … you name it … this rug is almost a year old and it STILL looks brand-spankin’ new!

6. Gleaming Primrose Mirror

This is one of those things that I saw and immediately KNEW I had to have!! I originally purchased the smaller version of this mirror but I loved it SO much that I had to get the largest size which is 7 FEET tall!! Now, while I’m seriously head over heels for this mirror, it IS an investment, especially if you live in Canada! Considering the actual mirror doesn’t directly ship to Canada, I had to get a broker to get it to us then I had to pay taxes and duties on top of the price … but to me, it was well worth it as I know I’ll have it in our home for years and years to come!

7. Metal Laundry Hamper

This adorable laundry bin is from World Market (under $40 US!) … everyone ALWAYS asks about this laundry bin and I LOVE it because it’s easy to move around considering it has wheels on the bottom and even though it’s always stuffed with laundry, it doesn’t matter because it’s so damn cute!

8. Buffalo Plaid Peel & Stick Wallpaper

I ordered this plaid removable wallpaper for our spare bathroom as I felt like it was missing something and I absolutely LOVE how it looks in there, it totally completed the space!! Also, it’s from TARGET and it’s super inexpensive, sitting at around $30 per roll!! Win-win!!

9. Drape Umbrellas

I ordered these umbrella’s from Wayfair and they make our outdoor space look like a cute beachy resort! The ones I ordered are in beige and I find they are the first ones to sell out, but not to worry, they seem to always have these on sale (they were JUST on sale … and might still be?? For 77% off so around $140 bucks each!) and they tend to get restocked from time to time!!

10. Loungers

I love love love the Trex Loungers we have out by our pool, they are super cute and comfy! We ordered the outdoor cushions to go on top of them in “Bird’s Eye” for extra comfort!

11. Outdoor Cabinets

The next two cabinets I want to share with you were custom built by Holly from The Shed Wood Co. Holly and I worked together to design a couple of pieces that would work well on each side of our outdoor space. On the busy side of the patio, I really wanted to have enclosed storage to store items like towels, sunscreen, sunglasses, extra bathing suits, cleaning supplies, plastic cups, plates, napkins, etc. On the top of the unit, I had asked for two holes to be cut out (one for garbage and the other for recycling) so people could toss their items in either of the bins without having to open up a door and it kept them nicely hidden away!

On the other side of the patio, I have a unit with open storage which I filled with baskets full of toys, life jackets, and items that people leave behind at our place, such as bathing suits! I really LOVE how both of these turned out, how functional they are and how they’ve enabled us to bring the indoors out!

12. Outdoor Furniture

I LOVE our outdoor furniture set!! The patio table and chairs from Canadian tire, and they’re so crazy durable!! We left it out this past winter and it still looks brand new!!

13. Pendant Light

These industrial pendant lights in our kitchen are from Visual Comfort & Co! I love them because they’re so unique and add such a bold statement to our home.

14. Hampton Pendant

This pendant light is over my soaker tub in our Master Ensuite, I love the New York boutique hotel vibe it gives off!

15. Wood Stumps

I got these wood stumps from The Cross Decor & Design but they are made by a local company called Style in Form from Vancouver. I love that they are natural and timeless and they’re a great piece of decor to have around if you have little ones as they won’t break or get dirty!!

16. Mantle

Our mantle is from a Canadian company called Dreamcast! Our mantel was custom made and I feel as though it gives the space an elegant and timeless feel.  We ended up going with the French Country Mantel in Chalk Old World!
