Nadiya recently moved to a new city with her fiancé. Together they set up their home to be a place where they could unwind at the end of a long day and kick back with a glass of wine and some nibbles. Nadiya’s put out flowers in a vase in the entryway and hung a gallery wall of family photos in the hall. The space is all set up, both beautiful and functional but something is missing.

- Some questions and resources to help you find your own decor style

It's old, the straps have been repaired more times than I can count, I tore a mofo of a hole in it last year and walked around with skin showing... (the hole has been repaired, you may be relieved to know). It's also starting to not sit right but....
I noticed how much packaging waste is created every day so I made the conscious decision to breathe new life into packaging materials. As a result, you also receive customized boxes cut to the size of your product for a better fit...
