Which pieces to buy first?

The most important pieces in your home are the sofa, bed, and dining table & chairs.  Ideally you want to invest in as many high quality pieces of furniture within your budget that you can use for over 10 years.   If you're planning on moving to a new place in a few years.  If you have plans to move to a new place in a few years you may want to wait before purchasing certain pieces.  You don't want to invest in a small dining table just to have to buy a large dining table in a few years. 


I would suggest to start with a sofa.   This is where you spend most of your time relaxing, watching TV, and entertaining guests.  Buying a sofa that is as comfortable as stylish is important.  I sometimes fall asleep on my comfortable sofa while watching TV!  I would recommend buying a sofa that has earthy or neutral tones and accenting with pop colored pillows.  This way if you ever want a new look, it will be easy to switch out pillows.  Below are a few great examples of neutral tone sofas that look great in any home.






 Dining Table

 The Dining Table is important because that’s where we come together to share meals and spend time with family.  It's where we celebrate milestones, birthdays, and holidays.  The ideal Dining Table will be one that fits in your space, good quality, and timeless style.    

Don't buy into trends that you may grow out of in a few years.  Buy something that you know you will love years to come.  Rectangular shaped dining tables are the most common so you'll find many options of this shape.  If you have a smaller space consider round or oval dining tables which will take up less room.   The base will also have an effect on how many people can comfortably fit on the table.  Check to make sure the base doesn't take too much space of the leg room needed.  If the legs are thinner, it will be easier to squeeze in an extra seat.  Make sure the Dining Table you pick fits comfortably in your dining area.   A good rule of thumb is to give about 3-4 feet of room from each side.

For those of you who love to sleep as much as I do, you can't go wrong with investing in a good quality bed.  The bedroom is where you can unwind, relax, and get a good nights rest every night.  Most people spend 30% of their life sleeping and good rest will make you feel more energized during the day.  Add a breathable bamboo mattress protector for your bed for an even more comfortable night's rest.

  Choose a good quality bed that will last for 10 or more years while giving relaxing feel to set the tone of your bedroom.  Who wouldn’t want to enter a Tulum style bedroom every night?  I know I would !   if you want to bring the beach side feel to your bedroom it’s all about incorporating neutral tones with pops of color.
