2 Unexpected Places to Shop If You're Redecorating

1. Etsy

When most people think of Etsy, they think "handmade jewelry," which is true, but there's so much more to Etsy than that! In fact, I'm about to tell you about two cute shops that will make all the difference in your re-decorating efforts! Personally, I've been obsessed with marble-like designs lately and I thought what better way to incorporate that into my re-decorating plans than with some coasters right? That's how DeLucci Resin Art (an Etsy shop started by Alyssa DeLucci, a childhood friend of mine) comes into play.  Alyssa's Custom 4 Piece Resin Coaster Set are to die for! She worked with me to create a color scheme that would match my living area, and the results were stunning. The gold and silver design helps bring together my warm wood furniture with the cool grey hues in my couch and rug. Alyssa also makes phone cases, cutting boards, and leggings!! Be sure to check out the rest of her collection here. Another life-changing (a.k.a. room-changing) purchase was from another Etsy shop called, A Piece Of Bella. Aside from my love of marble, I've also been head over heals for the popular palm/tropical leaf theme. So when I stumbled upon this Palm Leaf Pillow Cover, I absolutely needed a pair for my living room.  I'm happy to say that they bring some life to my otherwise minimalist living room. And if palm print isn't your thing, A Piece Of Bella has a huge collection of pillow covers to choose from that will surely spice up your seating areas!

2. Amazon

I was in desperate need of a coffee table and rug. Unwilling to pay the shipping charges at Ikea, I started perusing Amazon's furniture selection. And to my surprise I stumbled upon some great finds. I ended up going with this Laputa Mid Century Coffee Table and this Sweet Home Grey Shag Rug, both for great prices and free shipping! Now, I was a little wearing about the quality of the items, but after receiving them I have no complains at all. The coffee table is sturdy, trendy, and was very easy to assemble. The rug is soft and the light grey color was exactly what I was looking for to contrast the dark grey of my couch!

So next time you're looking to change things up in your home, make sure to check out what Etsy and Amazon have to offer!
