For the record, I know nothing about home décor, but I do pride myself on having at least a little bit of taste. That being said, I thought it might be fun to share with you all of the items I've been looking to add to my apartment here in New York. Since my rent is already way too much than I would care to admit, that leaves a pretty small budget for home décor, but somehow, I managed to find tons of items under $100 that will make my apartment look 10 times more exciting and 10 times more fashionable. 

Due to the low price point, you won't find any pieces of furniture here, but instead, you'll see a slew of stylish coffee table books, quirky trinkets, and everything in between. The object of these affordable home décor items is to liven up your living space with unique and eye-catching pieces that will leave you and your guests smiling every time. 

These books (I own the entire set) are my favorite books in my apartment. 

I might not actually store anything in here, but dang it's cute.

Not your average candle holder, that's for sure.

A simple and chic tray to keep everything from keys to mail to candles.

This vase looks so expensive. Not sure what to put in it? Scroll down. 

This super-tall faux flower goes perfectly with the vase and will spare you hundreds of expensive trips to the flower market. 

Why have silverware when you can have goldware? 

These mugs feel equal parts retro and modern. 

Hotel Magique has some of the coolest prints I've seen in a while. 

Furry pillows are not only fun to pet, but they always make a couch or chair look more inviting. 

I want to put this pitcher on display; it's so pretty. 

If you don't own a Boy Smells candle, buy one ASAP. 

Yes, this is the coolest mortar and pestle you've ever seen. 

No, I don't need this plate, but eating off of it will make me smile, so here we go. 

I'm a sucker for coffee table books. This series is my next conquest. 

They're not regular bowls, they're cool bowls.
