+ Monogrammed Door Mat

When you have guests over for the first time, I think we all want to make a good first impression. If you're looking for the perfect attention-getter and conversation starter, this home decor item is the perfect piece. This item is available in black or grey and will go great with all your cozy home decor.

+ Indoor Plants

First things first - PLANTS, PLANTS, PLANTS. Indoor plants are the easiest way to upgrade your home’s look. Not only are the lush green colors appealing, but the variety of plant textures allow you to customize your space to your style. Hit up your local Lowe’s or Home Depot to explore your plant options.

PRO TIP: Don’t have a green thumb? Not to worry! These indoor plants are literally the easiest plants to care for: Snake Plants, Chinese Evergreens, and Aloe Vera.

+ Throw Pillows

Next on my list - throw pillows! Not only are throw pillows comfy (who’s ready for a nap, am I right?), they are also easy to replace every season to keep your home’s look updated and fun! Just look for inexpensive pillow inserts at Ikea or Amazon and pair them with a different pillow cover for every season! My favorite shop for pillow covers is H&M and my favorite shop for all-in-one throw pillows is Target.

PRO TIP: Don’t be afraid to mix in throw pillows of different sizes, shapes, and fabrics to add extra dimension and wow factor to your space.

+ Himalayan Salt

A newer trend, but quickly becoming a favorite - Himalayan salt. Himalayan salt is super cute decor and goes with virtually any decorative style! From your bedroom to your kitchen, Himalayan salt is a great way to revitalize any spot in your home. They are sold in a variety of shades and shapes making each a unique decorative piece! Search for Himalayan salt on Amazon for the best deals.

PRO TIP: Himalayan salt comes in a variety of forms, my favorites for quick and easy decorating are candle holders and lamps!

+ Turkish Towels

Last (but certainly not least) - Turkish Towels! Whether you’re going for a modern look or a shabby chic look, a Monogrammed Turkish Towel is just what your bathroom needs for an inexpensive and quick upgrade. These towels are generally sold in neutral shades making them perfect for any color scheme!

PRO TIP: Because these towels are a little thinner than a normal towel, layer them on top of a fluffier set for a fuller look.
