Two weeks after graduation, I moved eight hours away from my hometown to New York City for my dream job. It was totally worth it, but people weren’t kidding about the whole “NYC is expensive” thing. I pay more than I’m willing to admit for a glorified dorm room, and since I spend most of my day working remotely from home, I wanted my space to be a sanctuary for work and sleep. The white walls, shabby floors, and exposed radiators just weren’t doing it for me, so I turned to The Home Depot’s massive online décor section to transform my space (without even having to leave my apartment). Here, the 15 items that will totally transform your space, too.  

  1. 1. This “nearly-natural” plant you’ll never have to water 

  2. 2. A set of tall, glammy lamps to make your ceilings look higher 

  3. 3. This golden feather sculpture that turns any desk into a writing sanctuary 

  4. 4. Chic floating storage for your knick-knacks 

  5. 5. This plushy area rug where your feet deserve to land in the morning  

  6. 6. An adjustable floor lamp for your desk, vanity or selfie corner  

  7. 7. A marble cutting board to hide those outdated counter tops  

  8. 8. A chic vanity tray for all of your ~anxiety~ skincare  

  9. 9. These modern, geometric candle votives for mood lighting  

  10. 10. This space-saving, semi-circle entryway table  

  11. 11. Woven baskets for chic storage in any room
