How to decorate your home: Four easy tips

One of my favorite hangout spots is my apartment. I literally can spend all weekend at home chilling on the couch, with good food and wine of course. As you may already know, I am a home buddy and I like my place to be comfortable and stylish since I spend so much time in it. 
Some people find decor intimidating but it can be a lot of fun. If you are searching for ways to give your home a little beauty and style, I have four items that can help you do just that. 

Four home decor must haves

1. Flowers: These are a great way to give your home instant beauty and freshness.You can put them on your dining table, side table or your coffee table. I love to have flowers in my bathroom too. I know what you are thinking, flowers are expensive Agnes. If like me you can not afford to buy fresh flowers every week, dried flowers are good option, but no fake flowers guys…too tacky
2. Candles: I am so obsessed with candles so much that I have them in every room. Candles are a great way to make your home warm and inviting. Nowadays they have all sorts of designs and fragrances to choose from which is great. Place a candle on your coffee table, burn it while relaxing and you will find it very calming. 
3. Artwork : A beautiful painting is a sure way to bring life to your walls. The important thing when choosing paintings is to make sure the size is in proportion to your wall. You don’t want a 6 foot frame in a tiny apartment because it will make the room appear smaller and crowded. 
4. Throw Pillows: If you don’t have throw pillows I suggest you head out to the store right now and grab some. These will give an instant comfy cozy feel to your home while being very practical. Use them to accessorize your couch or bed, just remember to pick fun designs and colors. 
Now that you have your home decor basics, I would love to know what your favorite home decor accessory is ?

Picnic pleasures!

I am sad to see summer go however I love that fall is here and we can enjoy the beauty that it brings to our earth. Trees begin to change their leaves from green to red, orange and yellow before they fall creating beautiful scenery. Since fall is the transition from summer to winter the weather does get cooler but it is still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors. 
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to visit the park, have a picnic or simply taking a walk in the park. Something about being surrounded by nature brings peace to my soul and I recommend it to anyone.

Picnic time !



Are you thinking of a having a picnic and are not sure where to go or what to bring ? All you need is a picnic basket filled with goodies, a blanket and a loved one to share the experience. If you live in Boston, the Larz Anderson park in Brookline is great for picnics and the Arnold Arboretum park in Jamaica Plain is great for walking . Picnic food needs to be simple for example sandwiches, a pasta or quinoa salad, cheese, fruit and wine. Always remember to bring some water and a cool drink like fresh homemade lemonade.
