WE ASKED THE BLOCK COUPLETURNED- HOMEWARE- GURUS ALEX & CORBAN WALLS ABOUT WHAT MAKES A HOUSE A HOME.
ALEX SAYS: When we got married I went out and made sure we had two full sets of bedding that I loved, so when one was in the wash you have another full bed set up that you enjoy just as much. I then was able to throw out all of the random hand-me- down sheets or budget sets I bought for myself as a young adult. This felt like such an accomplishment, and we truly felt we had become real adults! CORBAN SAYS: It seems these days most newlyweds already have the basics covered with their essential house items already collected over the years, either individually or together. I think when you get married it’s the perfect opportunity to invest in some big ticket, statement style pieces together like a special piece of artwork or a designer furniture piece that you’ll enjoy for a long time.
