Since I’m moving into mine and my boyfriend’s new apartment in September I’ve been doing quite a bit of shopping. I’ve bought a lot of boring stuff I won’t show you (unless you want to know the basics of a starter apartment? Let me know!) and i’ve bought a few decoration pieces that I really want to share with you guys.
I hope you guys like them just as much as I do and that they give you some inspo to go out and decorate your spaces.
#1. Baskets/ Trays
I found these baskets at the dollar store and a garage sale for around one dollar a piece. They were originally not so nice colours so I decided to DIY them and paint them gold. Now I think they look quite modern and cool. And the whole thing cost me under five dollars, can’t go wrong.
(This is the paint I used if you are interested!)
#2. Throw Pillows
In general throw pillows or cushions are so ridiculously expensive. I refuse to spend thirty dollars on a cushion so I did some bargain hunting. The one with the stripe pattern shown below was found at Canadian Tire for ten dollars. I really like the pattern and it goes super well with my colour scheme. The round pillow with the pom-poms was found at one of my local thrift stores for three dollars! It was a total gem of a find.
#3. Gold Mirror
This was actually a hand me down from Emma. She bought this mirror in it’s original black colour from Ikea for around twenty dollars and when it got home she decided to paint it gold. Now it’s going to look even more beautiful in my living room.
#4. The Pineapple
I have been on a hunt for the perfect (and reasonably priced) pineapple decoration. I found this one today at HomeSense for 17 dollars. It is white ceramic and I think its beautiful. If you have a HomeSense store in your town go and take a peek for them! If you don’t have one I will leave links to other places to buy them in the products section.
#5. Marble Vase
This was another HomeSense purchase. I love marble. I love everything marble. This is a vase, I thought it was perfect, it was 13 dollars. That is all, I can no longer justify my addiction but I’m probably never going to stop.
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my home decor style. Stay tuned for my apartment tour in a few months to see these purchases in use and styled in my home.
