Happpppy weekend! Did you catch the home tour I posted about on Thursday? This apartment is seriously the cutest thing ever, and I was inspired by several of the pieces featured. I’m all about finding home decor for less and decided to see if I could recreate the home’s classic look using pieces from one of my favorite stores…TJ Maxx, of course! Honestly, don’t knock TJ Maxx until you’ve tried it. I have friends who refuse to set foot in there but know others who swear by everything from their coffee mugs to their workout gear. In my experience, TJ Maxx is a great resource if you’re looking for home items that don’t break the bank, and their website makes it super easy (too easy, haha) to stock up on adorable decor without leaving the house! I am so, so pumped for TJX’s newest home store to open later this year…there better be one in or near DC!
Here are some of my favorites for those looking to create a calm, classic look at home.
Ginger jars: Option one and option two are both affordable and classic. Ginger jars will never go out of style, but they can certainly be costly! These are both great picks if you want to save some $.
Table lamps: Anyone who appreciates a good neutral will love these table lamps–and the price can’t be beat! Shades alone can be surprisingly costly, and two lamps for $6o is really a steal.
Storage basket: I have a similar basket that I use to store extra books (because let’s be real, my shelves are overflowing). Baskets are also a great method if you need to store throw blankets and extra pillows.
Vase: Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about using ginger jars as vases, but this understated option would make a great addition to your living room (not to mention a nice hostess gift!).
Throw pillow: This white pillow would go with a bunch of room styles and looks super soft!
What are you up to today? I have a work event for part of the day and then am hoping to relax and watch the latest Kimmy Schmidt season…can’t believe they’re on Season 3 already! Here’s to a relaxing weekend and more warm weather.
