Mother Knows Best

Every time I visit my parents' house, I become more and more jealous of their home decor. It's very classic and grown-up, but I still envy the way that it is decorated as a whole. My mom lacks the create gene, but somehow still manages to come up with brilliant combinations and placement of all of her decor. These are a few of the pieces in their home that I love:


A big clock that sits above their living room fireplace. The detail on it makes it look so elegant.


This is my absolute favourite thing in their house. I'm a sucker for abstract art, but this one gets me every time. I want to steal it.


A money tree that sits in their kitchen. I've never seen such a perfectly braided trunk- jealous.


When I mean that my mom comes up with crazy combinations that somehow work, this is one of them. I would never think to put sparkly balls and grass together, but she did, and it spices up the corner of the room really well.


Small decorations make a big difference. I love key hooks. 


Their main floor bathroom is elephant themed. This is my favourite piece from it, as it's extra detailed. In case you didn't notice, even the wallpaper has elephants on it.

I am constantly decorating my home, but feel like I never get it right. I change my mind constantly as I love too many opposite looks (eclectic vs. classic, bright vs. muted colours, etc.) Maybe I'm too young and haven't pinned my style yet. Does anyone else feel this way?
