If you’ve got a design savvy someone in your life (or if you ARE the design savvy someone in your life), you can’t go wrong with some gorgeous home decor. Choosing the right pieces might be intimidating, so here’s a curated list of goodies from an interior design professional. (You’re welcome!)


I love candles. Period. They are decorative, smell nice, and relax us after a long day. Polyvore has an amazing list of brand-name, curated candles. For extra points, be thoughtful and buy a candle scented like her favorite perfume.

Decorative Pillows

What else do I love for a cozy home? Pillows. A new set of pillows can transform a room. If you’re worried about choosing the right colors, stick with a neutral tone and a classic print. Here are a couple of my faves:

I love this chair because it’s modern, glamorous and functional (indoor and outdoor uses). Plus, it comes in a variety of fun colors!

In case your special someone needs a drink to go with that new lounge chair. This bar cart is absolute perfection.


Just shy of “jewelry”, accessories are a close fave for gifting. Accessories are more versatile than a piece of furniture, and can freshen up a stale room. Smart tip – check your loved one’s Pinterest account for “dream home” board for ideas and favorites.

Handmade fused glass, coral design charger.

This is the kind of item that you won’t find in just anyone’s house, and it’s something anybody is sure to love. Functional and beautiful.

Jewelry Tree - Michelle Lynne Interiors Group

I love this unique and pretty Manzanita wall jewelry branch. Help her keep all the jewelry you – hopefully – bought her organized.

The ultimate gift – me! I can help your “sweet pea” put together an amazing new place. Perfect for newlyweds, or those just looking to start a new journey together. Check out my services and contact me today.
