Modern Incense Holders

Stunning Minimalist & Modern Incense Holders You'll Lust For! #incense #incenseburner #incenseholder #homefragrance #ceramics #interiordesign

A week or so ago I posted a ‘real life sneak peek’ on Instagram Stories about my incense holder hack. Basically, I had wedged an incense stick into our faucet in lieu of a proper holder! It was at that moment that I realized I actually should get a proper incense burner. You see, I’ve been really into incense lately. I love how easily it can make our house smell better, especially because the litter box has been in our dining room since the kitchen renovation started! So I started hunting for modern incense holders and thought I’d share some of the awesome ones I found with you!

How to Decorate with Large Indoor Plants in a Small Space. #plants #houseplants #lowlightplants #indoorgardening #smallspaces #tipsandtricks #tinyhome #decoratingwithplants

Houseplants of any size are definitely a decorating must-have in my book. Not only do they help circulate and clean the air, but it’s always nice to have something alive in your home. There are tons of options for small space-friendly houseplants, but it seems like size is always an issue. We have quite a few large indoor plants in our tiny bungalow, which means I’m often asked for tips on incorporating them into homes. I know it can feel daunting to bring a giant tree into your space, but these styling hacks will help you hoard plants with confidence!
