Hey Dolls, 
I'm really having fun decorating my new apartment. We've only been here for 6 months and I've already changed it up about 1,000 times! 

Today, I want to share with you some of my home accents (aka - things that serve no purpose other than to look cute). Currently, I've been loving the color orange so my home is bursting with pops of tangerine. Next month, the entire place may be stark white (you just never know with me). haha

I found these Glass Candle Lanterns at Kirkland's and filled them with faux fruit. The utensil holder is MacKenzie Childs. (gift from hubby)
Pineapple Tea Towels - PaperSource (sold out)
MacKenzie Childs 3qt Tea Kettle - Neiman Marcus (gift from hubby)
Bar Stools - Target
I love my bar cart and change it up often. It's a fun accent that's cute and functional. The mermaid vase is from At West End but it's an older item and no longer available. Gold Pineapple is from Joss & Main (here's one from Wayfair). Drinks and gold stemless wine glasses are from World Market.
Pineapple wine decanter - Pier1 Imports/Moscow Mule Mugs - Home Goods/Mexico The Cookbook - Barnes & Noble
Black Mirror - Big Lots (in store only)/Ghost Chairs - Biz Chairs/Pedestal Table - Ikea
Wall Paint - Sherwin Williams (Amalfi)/Bar Cart - Target/Towel - Marshals (in store only)

Ginger Jar - Ross (in store only)/Pineapple - Hobby Lobby (in store only)/Pineapple candlestick holders - Goodwill then painted by me)/Greek Key lamp - Home Goods (in store only)
Orange Pillows - Tuesday Morning (in store only)/Stripe Pillow Covers - Ikea/Tassel Pillows - Target/Faux fur throw - Marshals (in store only)/Sofa - Nebraska Furniture Mart (on sale now!)

I love "word" art and I found this of one of my favorite scriptures while browsing through Ross. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 
When I saw this bear head at Target (sold out) I had to have it. I'm Native American and of the Bear Clan. While a bear head hanging on the wall may seem a bit creepy to some - it's a personal treasure for me. For us, bears represent strength, wisdom, and healing.
Coffee Table Books are great accent pieces. I love fashion and home decorating books. They can be pricey so check eBay and Amazon.
I purchased the white Vittsjo shelf from Ikea and spray painted it with this gold paint. The floor mirror is about 10 years old. It was also painted gold (If you stop by my place, I may paint you too cause I'm a gold spray painting fool!).
Found this globe at Goodwill and painted it black, deer head book ends are from Hobby Lobby, Greek bust is from Ross. All in store only.
Gold "T" - Hobby Lobby/Silver Pineapple - Tuesday Morning (both in store only)
God is love print (8x10) - Minted/Diego and Frida book set - best price here/Teal "Pray more and Worry less" picture is from my daughter.

Hope you enjoyed this post. Our bedroom is my next project!

Your apartment looks wonderful! I love how bright and colourful it is, the tangerine accents you've added work so well, especially against the blue! :)

I love your decorating style! You have just enough accent pieces without it being too cluttered. And colors go without saying. :)

Can you maybe do a post on how you decorate open spaces so each area is clearly delineated but it doesn't come off weird? (Like how you have that little breakfast table area which is clearly in the living room space but comes off as being in its own little world).
