I figured with all the questions I have been receiving on where I have bought things for my apartment that I should just make a post with links to the exact products I bought.
To make this easiest, I am going to go room by room. I tried to be super budget conscious so nothing in here is too expensive also :).
Links to everything in the kitchen...
These were the cheapest bar stools I could find that were cute. I ended up finding them at Target and it was $130 for a set of two. I thought that was pretty dang good.
Black + White Rug:
Cutting Boards: So after I got this apartment I realized I am a cute cutting board collector. This isn't something I knew about myself before but now if I pass a cute cutting board I can't pass it down. The wood and marble (smaller board) and the gray board are both from HomeGoods. I find HomeGoods by far has the best price on cutting boards (they're expensive!). I got my large circle cutting board from Wayfair but it's no longer in stock. This one from World Market is extremely similar though.
Gold Bowl (similar):
I wanted a bowl that I could throw veggies in and this works perfectly. I got it from HomeGoods but I linked a similar one.
Love, love, love this gold teapot! I'm a tea girl and need my cup daily. Love that this is cute enough to keep out on my stove.
I get my dish towels from all over. I've had the best luck at Target, Homegoods, and Amazon. Just got the one above and I think it's soo cute.
I get a lot of questions about these white and gold serving utensils and if they stay pure white. I have had these in all types of red sauces and once I put them in a dishwasher, they go back to their normal white. If I hand wash them, they don't so I feel like you need to have a dishwasher to get these.
Cake Stand: Gray-washed cake stand came from HomeGoods.
Vases: Vases came from At Home.
Salt + Pepper Dishes: These also came from At Home!
PLATES, BOWLS, UTENSILS:
I got this set from Target and love ittttt. I got it on sale during Black Friday so watch out for that! It comes with two different sizes of plates, bowls, and cups. I personally got two sets of these to keep in my apartment.
Gold Silverware Set:
I have been using these for over six months now and just a couple of them have the gold coming off (in a really small place too). They have gone through the dishwasher hundreds of times and look great. Gold silverware can be hard to find that last through dishwashing and this is definitely one of the sets I recommend. Plus, I just love the shape of it.
White Knife Set:
My Pots + Pan Set:
Okay, to be honest, this was a little splurge. I wanted to get nice pots and pans because I knew I would be keeping them for a LONG time. Also, I love to cook so it was something that was important to me. I will say that I love them and highly recommend them!
Baking Sheet Set:
These are some of the prettiest casserole dishes I was able to find!! I bought two of them in this size and one of them in more of a square size. These are just really handy to have.
Pre Cut Parchment Paper:
Practical Serving Utensils:
It was SO nice to have this set because it literally has every single thing I ever needed. Like so many things I didn't think of from pizza cutter to can openers. It was really nice to be able to move into my apartment and then know that I have almost every single serving utensil I needed.
Gold Mixing Dishes:
Gold and White Bowls:
I always get questions about these but they are from H&M home! Love them but they're not microwaveable or dishwasher safe.
Gold Chip Clips:
Wine Bottle Opener:
Let's state the obvious on this slow cooker...it's EXPENSIVE. I got it for my birthday, probably at 23 years old would not buy it for myself haha. But I do LOVE IT. I make so many slow cooker recipes and this insert can go directly on the stove top/in the stove and then can go right back into the slow cooker. It's awesome.
Before I got this, I used a cheap slow cooker that made the recipes just as good :). Moral of that all, get a slow cooker! By far my most used appliance.
Here are links to everything in my living room...
We LOVE this couch. Never ever buy this couch at full-price. It's on sale allll the time.
I am SO sad!! I can't find this coffee table in stock anywhere :(. I'm trying to find ones that look similar!
I could not find a coffee table that I liked that wasn't $1,000+. I found this one at Home Depot and Ben and I stained it a black color and added small gold knobs. It is perfect!! We love it and it looks a lot more expensive than what we did it for.
Gold Circle Mirror:
Large Canvas: I DIYed this! You can see my instructions and the products I used in this blog post.
Picture Frames on Wall:
Gold Curtain Rod:
Baskets Under Bench:
The pillows on my couch came from Woven Nook, Target, and American School of Charm. 🙂 Most of them are sold out but all of them are rotating the cutest new places all the time (especially Woven Nook).
Candlesticks on Coffee Table: I got these gold and wood candlesticks from World Market. I can't find them on the website anymore but I love a lot of the candlestick options World Market has!
Tray on Coffee Table (similar):
Gold Candlesticks on Console Table:
Wood Box: The wood box on my console table came from HomeGoods!
Where I got everything in my bedroom from...
Long Antelope Pillow: My long antelope pillow is from American School of Charm. She custom made it for me but you can also find similar ones on Etsy!
Gold Mirror: I found this at HomeGoods when I was still in high school! It was actually silver and I just spray painted it when I moved into my apartment. I find Walmart and HomeGoods has the cheapest floor length mirrors.
Lamps on Nightstand: These lamps are from Target. Love them! Can't wait to see them actually styled ;).
Blanket at End of Bed: This blanket came from HomeGoods!
Here's links for where I got everything...
Entryway Table: TBH, I didn't want to spend this much on an entryway table (it was $199) but I eyed this table for months because it was skinny enough that it could fit in my entryway. I ended up one night pulling the trigger and really do love it.
Entryway Mirror: I wanted to layer a mirror here to make the space look bigger. I went back and forth on what style of mirror but ended up with this one since I liked the curved edges. Plus, it was by far one of the cheapest mirrors I was looking at (only $70 which is great for a mirror this size).
White Canvas That I Painted: This is the original artwork I painted from Target. You could find this cheaper I'm sure at HomeGoods or even Goodwill. I liked this one because of the size and the frame that was attached.
Entryway Vases: The black vase came from HomeGoods but unfortunately broke so that's a goner (I was heartbroken hahaha I loved it). The striped vase and white vase came from At Home. At Home has the BEST vases these days.
Entryway Greenery: Okay, I'm going to preface this with saying I hateee fake looking greenery. Someday when in the future, I am going to splurge on Pottery Barn greenery because it really is the most realistic fake greenery on the market. For now though, I am using this greenery from Hobby Lobby. It doesn't look terrible but definitely doesn't look as good as some Pottery Barn leaves would look :).
Entryway Fall Leaves: Love these!!
Entryway Beads: I am obsessed with using beads as decor in my apartment. I think they add such a cute layer. I have had people dm me that the bead situation would be a disaster with kids/cats, but since I have neither I love them.
Entryway Tall Basket (similar): Love this to add extra storage. You could throw shows, umbrellas, etc in here.
Entryway Short Basket: Same as above 😉
Entryway Clear Border Frames (wood + white): I just added this with my fall printables and now they're here to stay. Love them!!
Entryway Bowl: This is from At Home. It actually has a cover but I took it off so it's more like a bowl.
Entryway Fall Prints in the frames: You can find all these prints to download for free in this blog post.
Where I got everything in my guest room from...
So, I actually got the bed above from Walmart on a crazy deal but this bed from Overstock is also a great deal and looks really similar. Basically any bed that you can find both the headboard and the base for under $400 is an insanely good deal.
This mattress is under $250 and is the BEST. Seriously, it's sooo comfy I am obsessed.
3. Sheet Set
Another favorite sheet set of mine. I've used these sheets in my dorm room, my college apartment, my bed at home, and now on both beds in my apartment. Moral of that all, they're GOOD and you can't beat them since they're under $30.
3. Sleeping Pillows + Satin Pillow Covers
5. Comforter Insert
To get my beds looking extra fluffy, I use TWO of these duvet inserts on my beds. So basically, I sandwich them together and then put the duvet cover over it.
6. Duvet Cover
7. Blanket at End of Bed
8. Decorative Pillows
4. White + Black Books: This is a Goodwill hack! Basically I wanted white and black books and after searching them online I quickly realized they are suppperrr expensive. After going to Goodwill, I realized that you could just flip the paper over and it's white!
5. Basket: This was a TJ Maxx find.
1. White-washed + Gold Desk: This isn't pictured above but I also have this desk in here. I loveee it but it looks like it's sold out! World Market has so many other cute + similar desks that I love as well.
