If you’re lover of the finer things in life, you’ll most likely agree with us that going on a shopping spree is SOOOOO fulfilling and somewhat therapeutic. The best part! Admiring your purchased luxuries when you get to wear them or make use of them. We especially love the thrill that comes with finding elegant home decorative items because you get to make your home look more stylish and be reminded of your shopping “accomplishments” and decorative skills on a daily once you’ve positioned the pieces in place. Please tell us we are not the only ones who feel this way about home décor and furniture!!
Anywho, in an effort to experience the not-so-guilty pleasures that come with finding beautiful home décor pieces, we scrolled through our Instagram feed to round up some of the coolest, most stunning home décor items that our local businesses have to offer. Scroll ahead to discover all of our recent DivasInc Home Finds we are swooning over. We know you’re going to see a few items that you’ll want to buy for your home (and maybe even for your best friend). The things we do for love and the soft life.
This super modern contemporary flatware adds a flair of undeniable elegance to any diner setting. You can choose from finishes like black shine for a moody look, silver for a chic vibe, or gold shine for a glam table-scape. It’s the slender silhouette that makes us want to eat our meals with such elegance.

10.Breville Curve 4 Slice Toaster & Kettle
Matchy-matchy when done in excess can leave your room looking back dated. We are however, loving this twinning toaster and kettle set because the coordination is just right! It’s not too much, it’s not too little, just enough chic!!! Its scalloped glossy and metallic exterior is gorgeous, whilst the toaster itself allows you to use it as both a 2-slice or 4-slice toaster depending on what you need. The set also comes in four high gloss colours with chrome accents of your choice. When toasting, it stays fairly cool to the touch, which is good and has a handy removable tray that lets you dispose of crumbs easily. A worthwhile splurge isn’t it!

11.Yarn Bean Bags
How about adding a surprisingly cool bean bag for your kids to lounge on?? We are very impressed with the vibrant colours and its even (albeit playful) unique shape. But buying anything for the kids’ comfort and happiness is justified. These creative giant bean bags are made of knitted yarn which makes them a super cosy chair alternative for the little ones and possibly an even cuter accessory for your living room than throw blankets.
