Hello Friends! I moved into my first apartment with my fiancè this July and we are finally settling in. We had a lot going on this summer ( engagement, weddings, new puppy, graduation, and a new job). I will make a separate blog post talking about some of the other things that happened this summer but right now I want to talk to you about how I decorated the apartment on a budget!!
First off I made an inspo feed! My inspo feed was created on Instagram. How I created it was by searching home decor and saving all the images I liked to a home decor folder ( you could even make subcategories like bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, etc). This helped me find a theme for my whole apartment. I did this BEFORE purchasing anything to eliminate impulsive shopping on items that I didn’t need or wouldn’t end up matching my overall aesthetic.
After making my inspo feed I found out I liked:
– Neutral colors
– The farmhouse look
– Gallery walls
-Wooden decorations/ furniture
Once I found out what I wanted my apartment to look like I formulated my budget and looked at stores that would have discount furniture.

Bed Bath and Beyond
From there I looked at the things my fiancè and I already owned then started shopping!
