1. Statement rug
Whenever I post pictures of my living room, the rug is usually the first thing that gets complimented. This was actually the first big non-furniture purchase I made for my apartment almost 4 years ago and I still love it to this day. It was totally worth splurging on.
2. Throw pillows
3. Fresh flowers
4. Art prints
I'm going to do a whole post on art prints in a few weeks but needless to say, I have them everywhere! In my dining room, bedroom, living room, over my dresser, on my desk. It's such an easy way to decorate and show off what you love, whether it's travel, quotes or illustrations. Or in my case, a little bit of everything!
5. Gold accents
I recently became obsessed with adding gold accents to my apartment. On my desk, I have a gold organizer and a little gold & ceramic succulent figurine. But also scattered through my apartment is a gold frame, gold geometric triangles, a gold ampersand. The list goes on. I don't have too many and I try to make sure they're mixed in with other items so it's not overwhelming. But I do think they had a chic touch to the rest of my decor.
So those are my staples! Who knows what other ideas I'll come up with or be inspired by but in the meantime, I think these five will remain a bit part of my apartment's look overall.
