Weekend Notes


Links I Loved: 

Shopping & Sales:

  • Looking for sheets that feel like heaven? Look no further than Boll & Branch. I have the classic white trimmed sheet set. Let’s just say – pure, organic heaven.
  • Obsessed with this new bar cart from Target. Plus it’s only $129. Yessss.
  • I picked up J.Crew’s new motorcycle boots and have been wearing them non-stop ever since. Make sure you get them on sale! They are currently offering 25% off this weekend. Use promo code ‘SaleTreat’
  • L.L. Bean’s duck boots are on back order through January. Found these puppies as an alternative.

In case you missed it on Lauren-Nelson.com: 

  • Don’t worry, my love for stripes goes straight into fall.

One Room Challenge: Week Three

Hellooooo, week three! Can you believe we’re half way through the One Room Challenge? In case you missed it, take a peek at what happened Week 1 and Week 2.

This week was all about my desk area. From day one, I knew I wanted to get rid of the mini Ikea kallax shelf I had as my nightstand. Instead I wanted a desk that could also double as my nightstand because I seriously needed somewhere to #WERK. It’s hard to believe but whenever I work from home, I blog from my couch or bed. Not ideal I can tell you that!

Anywho, deciding on a desk was one of the hardest decisions I had to make this One Room Challenge! I was going back and forth for days on whether or not I was going to go with West Elm’s Mini Mid-Century Desk. 1) It’s kind of pricey. 2) You can find a white desk pretty much anywhere. However, when I was shopping with a girlfriend one day and saw the desk in person, I knew it had to be mine. Positives: It came relatively fast and it was SO easy to put together. I’m so excited how it turned out this week.

Next up: Need to make a final decision on the chair. I’m leaning towards the Hans Wagner Wishbone which duh, you knew already since blogged it about this week. Also, I think I’m in a time crunch to finalize prints for my new gallery wall (only three weeks left!). Please leave a comment if you love any pieces of art or photographs I should incorporate!!! Much, much appreciated.

P.s. how cute is my little fiddle leaf fig tree?! Not kidding I got it on Amazon ($29.99) and I’m obsessed!!

Until next week, my friends. Xo. Lauren

Can we please talk about Hans Wagner’s Wishbone Chair for a second?

In case you are keeping up with my One Room Challenge (Week 1 & Week 2 for reference), I have been decorating like crazy. More to come this Thusrday, but my desk finally arrived!!! I bit the bullet and went with West Elm’s Mini Mid-Century desk after searching high and low for the perfect white desk. After coming to this design decision, it’s now time to nail down a chair. I have been such a fan of Hans Wagner Wishbone Chair for quite some time. With it’s sleek design and use of natural materials, it’s no surprise we see it time and time again in different home features across the web. It’s a classic piece you can most certainly hold on to for years to come.

Although an original Hans Wagner wishbone chair can run around $500-$600 a piece, I’d prefer to “get the look” for now (#girlonabudget). Amazon particularly has a great option in addition to Wayfair. Although not your typical “wishbone” design, West Elm’s John Vogel chair has a similar look which I also love.

Very excited to update you guys this Thursday with more One Room Challenge updates! Have a great Tuesday. Xo. Lauren
