Elegant & Classy Apartment Decor on a Budget

Elegant Apartment Decor on a Budget
I’ve always wanted an elegant home…but not on an elegant budget! Over the past few weeks I’ve been collecting some pieces that a beautiful and look a lot more expensive than they cost. It just takes some careful bargain hunting – and coupon collecting – to create the perfectly-decorated home you’ve always wanted.

Ginger Jars and Chinoiserie

I love collecting chinoiserie pieces and they instantly upgrade any room. I combine these beautiful blue and white floral pieces with gold accents or on cherry wood furniture. Vases are also a particular favorite of mine! I’ve had the best luck finding pieces for under $50 on Amazon, at my local Home Goods, and At Home stores:

Vintage Cameras

As a graphic designer/hobby photographer, I love collecting vintage cameras and camera accessories! Even if they don’t work, they add a cute vintage vibe to my decor style and help if from being too “perfect”:


Gingham

…I saved the best for last! Gingham prints are by far my favorite class apartment decor on a budget option – it adds a homey vibe to the space without being too rustic farmhouse style, especially if you go for buffalo check which is very similar to gingham. And as a bonus, it matches perfect with my navy blue and white chinoiserie pieces! Here’s a few of my favorites:

There you have it! All of my favorite elegant, classy & a little-bit-preppy apartment decor on a budget that I’ve purchased for my new home! More pictures are coming in a few weeks when I finally put away those last few boxes.
