Over the years, I’ve learned how important it is to love where you live. It’s the place you come to relax, unwind, and bring friends over to celebrate. It’s your happy place and it should reflect who you are. Now I wish I had millions of dollars to decorate my apartment but I’m on that single mom/entrepreneur budget. LOL!
Let me first introduce my little gypsy den. It’s technically the patio on my 1,000 sq. ft. apartment but with the right eye for design, it quickly became my retreat. Cash and I love coming out here in the mornings to have coffee, water the flowers, and it’s a great place at night to have a glass of wine and good conversation.
I was able to create this whole backyard oasis by spending less than $200…I love that it’s added a whole new room to my apartment!
Outdoor rug: $70 from Ikea
Couch Cushions: $52 from Target’s outdoor section
Couch structure: FREE pallet I found outside a supermarket that I cut in half to match the cushions
String lights: $24 for a set of 2 at Target
Curtains: $8 for 2 sets at Ikea
Pillows: $10 for 2 in Target’s seasonal section
Antique chest: well, that was passed down from my parents from when they first got married. It’s a super special piece I used to complete the look
Hanging essentials: $10
Blanket: from Sack Cloth + Ashes
I really want to shed some light on the company Sack Cloth + Ashes because they are one AMAZING company. Their whole company is based off giving back. So if you purchase a blanket from them, they donate one to your local homeless shelter. How legit is that? I ended up getting two because of their cause. I was pleasantly surprised by how soft and cozy they were. I’m glad I bought two!
Leave me a comment, a question, or just some love. I LOVE hearing from you all!
