So to start off this new feature I am writing today about a few of my favorite home accessories that I believe add character to our home for a relatively low price!
We have this lamp on our yellow West Elm Parsons Desk, and the white lamp provides a great contrast to the bright yellow desk. I was so excited when I found this lamp because I needed a very small lamp for this space, and almost all the lamps I had found in the past were too big. This lamp was the perfect size, although I am still on the hunt for a better lampshade!
Blue and White Ceramic Balls, Pearl River Mart, $1.99
I love the way these blue and white Asian balls look gathered in a glass bowl. It's an easy and affordable way to add a classic touch of chinoiserie to any room. It's also much more practical than fruit or flowers because they never go bad! We had a few decorative glass bowls already when I decided to create this arrangement, but Jamali Garden usually has a great assortment of inexpensive glass bowls if you don't already own one.
Caspari Guest, Napkins, Gracious Home, $7.00
I believe that having beautiful guest towels in your bathroom adds a great deal of elegance for a small price. I also added a starfish to my guest towel holder for an added nautical touch. I have had this napkin holder for a long time and I do not know if it is still available in stores, but I found this similar guest towel holder on Decorative Things for $20, and it comes with your choice of Caspari Guest Towels!
This shea butter liquid soap does it all! It cleans, moisturizes, and has a light and fragrant aroma of Verbena. I know that $22 may seem steep for liquid hand soap, but I promise that this bottle will last you a long time, and besides being multipurpose, it instantly brightens up your sink area and adds a level of luxury to your bathroom which far surpasses that of every day liquid or bar soap.
This pineapple has moved around many times in our apartment, but no matter where it is stationed it always makes me smile!
Orange Foo Dog, HomeGoods, $10.99
I found this beautiful orange food dog with the Greek key print for $10.99 on clearance at the Home Goods in Paramus, NJ. Unfortunately I was only able to find one dog from this set, and at first I hesitated to put just one Foo Dog on display on it's own. I'm sure this Foo would look great in a pair, but I have found that having just one Foo Dog on it's own is a fun variation on this classic look, and it looks surprisingly good solo! It's also a great bookend, and adds a fun splash of orange to our living room!
Vino Glasses, Crate and Barrel, Set of four, $9.95
I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of my favorite attractive but affordable home accessories! Do you like this new feature? Do you have a favorite home accessory that cost $25 or less?
