Modani Furniture

Our home is a reflection of who we are, as is our personal style. If I think about what I typically like to wear, I can definitely say that my home has many similarities to my closet.

Recently, I’ve been introduced to a furniture store called Modani that sells furniture at both physical locations and online. They have a large archive of furniture and home decor for every room in your house.

I picked some items from their store and made my own personal mood board.

Modani Living Room

I tend to be very fickle when it comes to designing my home, which is why I always choose neutrals for my big pieces. If you’re in the market for a new focal piece, check out their variety of modern sofas.

I choose large neutral pieces so that when the mood doth strike me, I can inexpensively change throw pillows, drapes, or other accent pieces that can completely refresh my room without breaking the bank.

I also really love bursts of color, hence my pillow choices and the beautiful sunny bookcase. Mixing patterns is another part of my M.O. Sometimes my pattern mixing isn’t overt, sometimes I like to break up shapes with different shapes, like adding a round mirror to break up the angles in the rest of the pieces. With my clothing choices, I tend to be very subtle in my pattern mixing.  At home, I love being surrounded by color, patterns, texture, and shiny things (my husband may like shiny things a little more than I do).

Ikea Trip


Today, Jay and I took a long awaited trip to Ikea. We needed to get some stuff for the house so we rented one of these bad boys (Sidebar: I hate the way this vehicle looks. It has a really smooth drive but I think it’s pretty long and awkward looking. I can’t deny that it kind of looks like a 70’s pimp van…) and got on the road. We don’t have a local Ikea like we did when we lived up north, so we make a road trip out of it. We’ll (A) go to Ikea, (B) get some Jamaican food, and (C) get some more Jamaican food. All the pictures below shows what we picked up today with the exception of the sectional. We already have the sectional in white but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t have options, so I ordered another one in dark gray. I don’t know why the store didn’t have a lot in stock this time around so I went online and ordered it. Then we ate a bunch of goodies that we haven’t had in a while. When everything is set up, I’ll be sure to post a pic.
