Affordable Home Decor Trends - March Edition

I thought I would share some trending home decor styles for the month of March.

Geometric Area Rugs

I just got this gray diamond rug, pictured above, from rugsUSA, and I am in love with it. It was also only $70 for a 5' x 8' rug, which is nothing short of miraculous. So if you are in need of an area rug, get browsing! My favorite thing about this rug is that it is flat woven. While I am sure we all love the feel of our feet sinking into a plush carpet/area rug, I know that my dog will destroy it. The shag rug that once resided in our bedroom was proof enough of that. Tip for geometric patterns: consider the busy-ness of your room before you go for any pattern. Sometimes really "loud" patterns can overtake the room instead of fitting in seamlessly.

Textured Vases

The blue vases can be found at West Elm for $8-$30. I love the added texture - and it's definitely a growing trend this spring. White, ceramic versions of these vases are also incredibly popular and very easy to incorporate into any room - just in time to store fresh spring and summer bouquets!

Storage Totes

Storage totes aren't necessarily a new thing, but they do seem to be everywhere when spring comes around. I suppose they don't really classify as decor, but I am going to argue that they do, since they enhance/beautify areas that were once not so pretty/organized. For those looking to do any spring cleaning, especially when it comes to organizing a closet  (and your massive collection of yarn, but that might just be me!), I recommend grabbing some of these. This one is currently on sale for about $12 from Joss and Main. I found my own, which look almost exactly like this one, at TJ Maxx for about $10 each. Either way, really affordable storage solutions that can really help make your space more organized. It's a win-win!
