If like me, you keep looking at one of the rooms in your apartment and thinking that it really needs a refresh, then you don't need to set aside hundreds of dollars to make this happen. In fact, over the years of renovating my spacious apartment, I've come to learn that you can very easily rejuvenate a space by switching or adding just one item. Okay, you guessed it: It's a rug

The power of a rug is often underrated when it comes to decorating. I love the rugs in my home for doing the obvious: adding a soft touch to my lino floors. And not to mention, they are a godsend in the winter months as they add an extra layer of insulation. Other than that, I've used my rugs to add texture to my rooms, be it my neutral bedroom, my minimalist entryway, or my larger-than-life living room.

I've handpicked a bunch of Wayfair rugs that I loved when browsing on-site, and in my opinion, all of them look twice the price of their price tag (some of them are actually discounted, too). You can tell from my home Instagram account (opens in new tab) that I'm slightly impartial to a rug or five. Being somewhat clumsy and living with a pet, you can also rest assured that I know what to look for when choosing a rug that will last, be it an entryway rug or something for your bedside.

As someone who lives in a flat with a small amount of storage space to work with, and with two indoor pets to clean up after, I am forever searching for stylish yet functional appliances that won't blemish my decor if I can't fit them in a cupboard. I love decorating my living room for each season, while my other hobbies include drinking a decent cup of coffee, going on park walks with my dog and enjoying an Instagrammable brunch with my husband.
