I am excited to announce that I have partnered with Apartment Guide to serve as an Official Apartment Guide Decor Blogger! As an official blogger, I will be sharing articles and ideas for exploring your space, city and style.

Today's topic is all about my collaboration with Apartment Guide on Pinterest and some amazing Decor Ideas for Under $100! I know how you all love Pinterest, a good DIY Round Up, and some budget friendly finds… And so, I shall indulge you!

I have included some fabulous ideas on this pinterest board, for those of you who might be working with small spaces, renting, or have the design attention span of a 2 year old (me, me, and me). Most of the ideas found here aren't permanent and can be accomplished on a small budget (love that).

Let's get started with some inspiration, shall we?

From fish scale pendant lamps to stenciled book covers, I think many of us forget to focus on the every day items like lighting and books. Rather than ignore them, dress them up to the nines and adore them!

Budget friendly wall decor comes in many shapes, sizes, and styles which is truly important if you want to give your space a custom feel without breaking the bank. Oversized personalized prints in black and white or color are easy to create with your very own camera, and most print shops will print poster sized prints for a few dollars! Go crazy and plaster a wall with images that inspire you. Perhaps you love chalkboard paint as much as I do? Coat a few artist canvases with a healthy dose of that glorious black and hang them as your own works of art like Picasso.

I love a good IKEA hack as much as the next guy or gal, and these two examples truly knock that concept out of the park! For pennies on the dollar, get yourself a truly fabulous storage piece that looks expensive and uber-stylish!

Do you love a big gorgeous canopy bed, but perhaps you don't have the space or the funds to have yourself a traditional version? Why not make yourself one that takes up less space, costs far less, and yet still retains that glamorous look… Yes please!
