I put a list together of my favorite things I purchased for our new house. We made some big purchases, like a sofa, a king bed, and a dining set, but the items I listed below are mostly budget buys — with a few splurges — that would work for a new home or even a refresh for a current home. Most importantly, these items are the details that helped our house feel like ours.
I reach for these shallow bowls every day, and they’re especially pretty against our black cabinets and shelves.
My mom gifted us a set of cast iron skillets, and we use them every stinkin’ day, either on the stove or in the oven. They‘re easy to clean and continue to get better with frequent use.
Inexpensive candles that smell just as good as they look.
A splurge for sure, but it smells amazing — like herbs and spice.
I bought several sets of these to scatter around the house. I put them under my soaps in each bathroom, on every nightstand, and left a stack on our coffee table as well as our kitchen island.
The best sheets I’ve ever had! They’re crisp like linen and are cool and cozy.
Gorgeous and absorbent Turkish towels. I hung a hand towel in each bathroom and stocked the master with a set of full-sized bath towels.
