REVEL Picks: For The Home
When it was time for my husband Quinn and I to register for our new apartment, we had a million questions. What did we want our style to be? Was our home going to have a modern loft feel or go vintage chic? Did we want bright colors or timeless neutrals?
We finally decided on what I'd call a Modern Classic look. Neutrals of grey and slate blue set the tone with wood accents and pops of sunny yellow. Over a year later our tiny apartment is our cozy first home complete with a cuddly rescue cat named Oscar!

Timeless, retro and vintage all describe this armless accent slipper chair from Target. Perfect for adding bold color to a small space. It also includes a small kidney pillow for added comfort.
Organic Seersucker Duvet Cover
We wanted elegant, neutral bedding that wasn't too fussy or overly feminine. This duvet cover was West Elm adds subtly striped texture, while the crisp color options make it a snap to update your bedroom's whole look.
