Home Tour- Sapphire’s Basement Bungalow

I’m super excited to share with you… my humble abode!

Ya’ll. This home tour has been 3+ years in the making. I’m still tweaking and styling, and by now I’m ready to change it ALL up, but it’s been super fun and gratifying decorating my first place. I live in the lower level of a home that was refinished into an apartment and it’s been a whirlwind of DIYs, scouring Craigslist and thrift stores, and pinching pennies. Almost everything shown was either bought secondhand or gifted to me by my wonderful mama.

The biggest tip I have for people decorating on a budget is patience. If you try to decorate your place all at once, your impulsiveness will turn into regret once you start eyeing things you really are in love with down the road. Curate slowly. Think things out. And don’t be afraid to make mistakes! (I spray painted the bureau in my living room three times before it was a color I liked.)

Also accessorizing is everything.
