Hello everyone, I’m back from Florida and the great news is the house is rented through the end of March, so that’s a big relief and a big box checked off! While I was there I was thinking about all the little purchases I made in the last two years to make the house look cute and feel good and today I’m sharing my favorite budget buys with you. Many of these finds are from Amazon because it was easy to ship them fast while staying there but a few are from Etsy, Target, and other sources.
I return products if they’re not quality, but these products are great! All of the plants in the house are artificial right now since we don’t live there full time yet. I’ve sourced them from a few places, Michaels, Target, and HomeGoods. These trailing leaf artificial potted plants are great for placement on shelves or tables.
These 20×20” outdoor pillow covers are a great buy, the fabric is soft and not that cheap polyester feel. I also bought this pair in mint green and they are the same softness and good quality, great for updating your outdoor throw pillows. I also bought this cute and inexpensive mint green end table to sit next to the white outdoor sofa. I did a modern spin on ‘Golden Girls’ colors with the coral pink and mint green medley but I really love it for this coastal home. :) I ran out of time to photograph the outdoor seating set but I’ll share pictures when I return in early April.
I’ve bought several natural woodgrain art frames from this source on Amazon and last year I compiled a list of my favorite sources for affordable frames for hanging art in both small and larger sizes from 16×20” to 24×36”.
In the kitchen I added a few new things in fun colors like these mixed color two size tumblers and this mint green retro toaster. The single serve Keurig coffee maker is still serving up great cups of coffee. We asked our short term tenants to not burn real candles in the house, but this set of flameless candles feel just like the real thing, I’ve bought this set several times, they make a great gift!
For the hall bathroom, I bought these accessories online and they’re still looking good after almost two years, this waterfall faucet always gets compliments from guests and this gold hand towel holder has held up well.

In the family room, the white leather IKEA sofa and loveseat still look so good after 18 months, no stains, no tears, no issues, we love them. The white color is no longer available (sad face!) but these are a great budget sofa buy.
For outings or picnics at the beaches, I love this this rolling cooler and folding table. I also use this striped cooler backpack for carrying sandwiches or snacks for a group and bring along this portable bluetooth speaker.
All of the bedrooms have basic white linens so there’s nothing special to show there, but I will be updating and personalizing those spaces on my return in April. As you can see I’ve chosen lots of cheerful color for this home and I love how light and bright it is with all the pastel accents. Let me know if there are further questions!
