Luxury bedding can make all the difference in how you catch zzz’s. Linens can help keep you cool at night, which is good news for those who might overheat while they sleep. Cotton sheets do the same, but work well for all types of sleepers, hot or cold. On top of that, investing in organic or Oeko-Tex certified bedding will make sure not only that you’re comfortable, but also that you aren’t sleeping on any chemicals that could be harmful to your body, such as formaldehyde or pesticides. Since you spend about a third of your life sleeping, investing in quality sheets, duvets and pillow covers that will keep you cozy seems like a no-brainer.
In the Oeko-Tex market, we turn to Parachute Home or Brooklinen. Both offer bedding that’s completely organic from start to finish, and their sheet sets are incredibly comfortable. When we tested out both services, we were impressed with the quality, customer service and our overall sleeping results. For those who want more breathable linen fabrics on their beds, we recommend the Venice Set (starting at $399; parachutehome.com). For those more interested in cotton, Brooklinen’s Luxe Hardcore Bundle (starting at $239.95; brooklinen.com) will hit the spot.
Another solid organic bedding company is Boll and Branch. The GOTS-Certified brand ensures that the dyes used during the production process won’t leak into water systems. Additionally, there are no dangerous pesticides used during the cotton growing process. The real highlight, however, is that these ethically made sets feature minimalist designs, perfect for all spaces.. One of our favorite picks is the Solid Hemmed Set Sheet (starting at $200; bollandbranch.com).

Another simple way to revamp your space is to invest in a new piece of furniture. Whether it’s a large sectional or a metallic bar cart, a singular piece can completely transform a space. It’s a great move if you don’t have a ton of money to spend on your space, but you do want a new pop of life.
Since these items usually are larger, we specifically turn to retailers that offer free shipping, because when you’re shelling out hundreds of dollars for a new dresser or bed frame, the last thing you want is to tack on more money for shipping.
A few retailers that are standouts to us in terms of quality of products and ease of shipping include Wayfair, Nordstrom and Target. Wayfair offers free shipping for purchases over $49, Target for over $35 and Nordstrom is always free, no matter how little your cart is.
Some best-selling items to shop right now from those three retailers include Langley Street’s Henley Barrel Chair ($240.99, originally $399.99; wayfair.com), E2 Concepts Metal Mirrored Rolling Bar Cart ($149; nordstrom.com) and Project 62’s Hafley One Drawer Table ($48.99; target.com).

Decorative accents are the make or break for many home designs. It’s these little items, which can range from geometric lamps to coffee table books to funky planters, that give your space more character, and they don’t have to break the bank – so you’re getting a quick upgrade to your living, dining or bedroom space without dishing out more than $50.
Budget-friendly designs can be found at a number of retailers. What we love about some of the options we’ve found from Amazon, Anthropologie, Kaufmann Mercantile and Need Supply is that while they look very expensive, they’re actually on the affordable end of the spectrum. Your party guests will never know.
Our top picks to shop right now include Aneil’s Hanging Planter Vase ($17.99; amazon.com), Mimira Bath Collection (starting at $16; anthropologie.com), Areaware Totem Candle Set ($48; kaufmann-merchantile.com) and Taschen’s book “36 Hours: Los Angeles” ($10; needsupply.com).

Last, but certainly not least, comes art. Framed pieces can tie all your new pieces together. And while normally wall art comes with heftier price tags, investing in prints is a more budget-friendly choice that still gives your living room or bedroom that extra pop. Just like the accent pieces, these prints won’t run you more than 50 bucks.
Some of our go-to online destinations for affordable wall art include Urban Outfitters and Society6. There you’ll find colorful accent pieces such as Jonathan Lo Court Play Art Print (starting at $19; urbanoutfitters.com) and THE AESTATE’s tropical print ($41.99; society6.com) or more subtle and minimalist designs such as The Colour Study’s Line Drawing ($18.99; society6.com) and Kym Fulmer’s Crashing Waves Art Print (starting at $29; urbanoutfitters.com).
