As a renter I can't paint the wall or change anything major, so I'm always buying decorative pieces to boujie up the space quickly. Thinking this sounds expenny? Nuh-uh, honey. I've found that if you look in the right places, you can grab some gorgeous decor to decorate your apartment on a budget with.

No matter what room you want to zhuzh up and no matter what your style is, it really is possible to get cheap, cute buys that will make your home Insta-worthy.

As a trends writer, I always look to these places for fashionable picks that are totally within budget. They're all available online, so you can instantly grab what you need without even having to leave the house (I love an in-person shop, but as a busy gal,  convenience always wins for me).
