I like southshoredecorating.com.  She pulls pics from all different sources but the overall look is my style.  A bit formal with luxe details.  For casegoods, I like Bernhardt, Baker and Horchow.  For more casual upholstery, I have had great luck with Bernhardt, Crate and Barrel and Restoration Hardware.  I would not recommend Pottery Barn except for kids playroom stuff and I have been disappointed with Ethan Allen.  I hope that helps, Congrats on your new home!

yorp127:  I think I’ve only been in Homegoods once.  The closest one is about an hour away.

Her style isn’t for everyone, but my favorite is addisonswonderland.com! I’m obsessed with her current house, but they are in the process of redoing a 1908 house that is noting but studs right now so I’m loving following her! 

We’re also in the process of waiting for our house to be built (should be soon, I’m getting impatient!) and I’ve been in homegoods every day…

West Elm is my favorite! World Market is incredible also and won’t break the bank :] Oh and surprisingly…Target has a ton of amazing stuff!

Centsational girl has a lot of posts that I’ve taken inspriation from. https://centsationalgirl.com/ I honestly never intentionally go to her blog I just wind up there from pinterest links half the time lol

I buy most of my accessories from target and Homegoods/Marshall’s/TJmaxx. I also love consignment stores and antique malls for great quality pieces at decent prices, some things do need some paint/TLC though. I’ve also bought a lot of unfinished tables from Home Depot and finished them myself becuase I couldn’t find the color/style I wanted at a price I could afford. I love pottery barn but I’ve never bought anything from there, I wind up finding similar pieces at a fraction of the cost elsewhere but they do have great sofa’s if it’s in budget for you.

I stay far FAR away from anything Ashley or Rooms to go though because they’re awful quality and won’t last.

Furnishing and decorating a house doesn’t happen overnight, you start with the essentials and add to it as you run across things that you fall in love with. Usually, if you stick to things you love it will just come together on it’s own over time and evolve with your taste.

I second the votes for West Elm. It’s okay quality for mid-level prices. If you are gentle on it, it should hold up. I have a ton of furniture from there. Also, if you like their accessories, check Target first because they copy a lot of West Elm and are much cheaper. I also like Anthropologie, CB2 (more modern sister store to Crate & Barrel), Z Gallerie depending on the style, IKEA also for accessories, and like others have said, Wayfair and Overstock.

For blogs I read StylebyEmilyHenderson.com, remodelista.com, Hunted Interior, IKEA hackers, Decor8, Design sponge, Domino, Glitter Guide, Apartment Therapy, and Refinery 29.
