10 Essential Pieces for Your Home

Living in 5 homes in 6 years and redecorating more times than I can count has helped me learn what pieces I really love. There are a few key pieces that I’ve found are essential or just too good to pass up, like this discontinued IKEA mirror priced at under $100. Once in a lifetime deal, guys.

Some of my favorite pieces are vintage, like my marble coffee table (although CB2 has an almost identical one for just under $300) and Meg Made dresser, while others can be found at West Elm and CB2. Here’s my list.

  • That sofa is on my post-two toddlers wish list. We want a new one, but it isn’t worth investing in anything yet while their little hands get on everything!

  • Love all of these pieces! I’m actually in a bit of limbo over what to do with my mini Parsons desk and would love your opinion, Danielle. I have a minimally styled, neutral bedroom but it’s big – very tall ceilings and a fair amount of floor space (for an NYC apt). I’ve been keeping my mini Parsons desk at a friend’s but would like to move it into my new apartment. It would just fit in the corner of the bedroom, to the side of a nightstand and could turn it so it faces our wall of windows instead of the same wall as the nightstand. However, it would crowd things a little and I also wondered if it’s a big of a faux pas to put it in my bedroom? It doesn’t really work in our living room but I’d hate to see it go. Would love your thoughts!
