We are constantly looking for ways to spruce up our homes, and with spring cleaning out of the way, we’re more than ready. The problem is we’re, well, a little on the bougie side. Now there’s nothing wrong with being bougie, it’s just that we don’t have that bougie paycheck if you’re picking up what we’re putting down. But it’s all so fine because we are firm believers that you can in fact be bougie on a budget. If that describes your whole at-home vibe, then you’ll appreciate the following finds for your abode! Let’s get started.
Minimalist Spice Jars
These are probably the most aesthetically pleasing spice jars we’ve ever seen, and not only that but gone are the days of mismatched jars and labels junking up your spice racks. Every label is waterproof and removable, and the bamboo lids fit nice and snug so there won’t be any surprise spills if a jar gets knocked over. (With the lid on, of course!) Oh, and did we mention these are the most aesthetically pleasing jars we’ve ever laid eyes on? Buy them here!
Coffee Table Books
We don’t know the science behind it, but coffee table books just make a room look rich. This is also a really cool way to say what you’re into without having to actually say it, and they make great conversation pieces when you have people over. We’ve linked this incredible Chanel book, but you can find coffee table books about anything from art to political science. You can nab this Chanel book here, but you can also find them at thrift stores and local book stores.
Framed Art Prints
Art for your walls can get expensive, especially if you get your art framed, but luckily you can find a ton of downloadable prints you can easily send to your go-to photo pick-up place to nab in a matter of hours. And as for frames, check out your local thrift stores for cheap, yet ornate and expensive looking ones that fit the look you’re going for. And this goes for any wall in any room you’ve got that needs a little something extra. You can buy these botanical prints here.
Accent With Cozy Items
We don’t know about you, but we often run into areas in each room that could use a little something extra, and for those nooks and crannies, we recommend cozy accents. In the kitchen, we suggest cookbooks and tea towels, maybe even fresh flowers depending on the space you’re working with, where in the living room, your cozy accent may be a candle or five. You can find all kinds of vintage cookbooks at thrift stores, as well as blankets, pillows, and planters for some new plant babes; we’re big fans of $5 grocery store bouquets, and some of the best cozy scented candles can be found for just a few bucks at Target and on Amazon.
