Apartment 48 Finds

I love when I’m reading a favorite blog and I get introduced to a new product - or better, a new shopping destination! I can’t remember who first linked to Apartment 48, but as soon as I clicked through, I was smitten.


Apartment 48 is one of those cool online stores that has a small yet freaking awesome collection of stuff - I clicked through every page and oohed and aahed over nearly everything.


Admittedly, their furniture is pricey, but they have plenty of reasonably priced kitchenware, accessories, toys, candles, and other goodies. I took a look through and picked out some of my favorites - all under $100!


colored-pencil-picture-frame


Did yall know I collect picture frames? I’m always on the lookout for interesting ones to add to my collection. These frames are covered in rainbow colored pencils - so clever! (Small - $28, large - $45)


golden-skull


I could see my sister loving this shiny gold skull. I think she’d put it on her console table - your eye would go right to it as soon as you walked into her apartment! A little bold, a little bad-ass. ($100)


bamboo-lacquer-trays


We all know I love a good tray. This bamboo one has a gorgeous lacquer finish and comes in three pretty colors - grey, blue, and white. Sometimes big trays like this can be expensive, but this one is only $56!


agate-coasters


Sure, you could put your drink on that tray above, but what about a gorgeous agate coaster set? I love agate - the ripples and marbling in these muted coasters are beautiful. The set of six costs $85 - a perfect housewarming gift.


stripped-cutting-board


Now that I’ve seen this awesome striped cutting board, I’ll never be able to look at my boring white one the same way again. I LOVE the idea of making something so basic into a little piece of art. May need to pick this one up and bring it to live in my kitchen! ($38)


susani-melamine-platter-magenta


I LOVE SUZANIS AND SUZANI PRINT ANYTHING! This hot pink plate is ADORABLE and only $15! For $15, I could buy HUNDREDS and cover my walls with them. Don't laugh, I really might do it :)


Like these picks? Go check out Apartment 48’s online store - the holidays are coming up... pick up a gift while you’re there and tell me what you got!

Note: this is NOT a sponsored post. I just think this website has really cute stuff! :)

The colorful cutting board would make kitchen chores so much more fun!
