Even if you are on a tight budget, you can still find decorative pieces that help you make your first apartment feel like home. Keep reading for some tips on decorating your first apartment with budget-friendly pieces that add personality:
Use Mirrors to Create the Illusion of More Space
Mirrors are great decorating tools, especially in smaller spaces. A few well-placed mirrors can make a room brighter. The reflection created in the mirror also helps you create the illusion of more square footage. Choose a few decorative mirrors to use in your interior design to enhance your décor. When you shop at the consignment store, you can find some great accessories that fit right into your budget.
Get Creative with Lamp Shades
Interior lighting has a big impact on your décor. Simply updating lampshades is a great way to get a new decorative element for your apartment without a huge price tag. New lampshades also give you the ability to change the way the light looks in a room. Incorporate a few different kinds of lamps to get the best kind of lighting for your interior.
Choose Decorative Storage Features
Too much clutter makes a space look much smaller than it actually is. Luckily, there are plenty of decorative pieces of storage furniture that help you hide this clutter while adding a new element of style to your space. Choose a few decorative storage options like ottomans, chests, or even unique vintage bags to help you hide your clutter and add to your interior design.

When it comes to organizing and displaying your jewelry, you owe it to yourself to think outside of the box—the jewelry box, that is. Your favorite pieces can get tangled, buried, or lost in the depths of a jewelry box. Instead of rummaging through a disorganized box every time you want to put on a pair of earrings or a necklace you purchased at your local Sacramento consignment store, consider using a more creative way to keep your jewelry organized. Install a few decorative pegs on your wall to hang necklaces, bracelets, and more, or repurpose antique drawer pulls to give your jewelry a home. Check out this infographic from Home Consignment Center of the Sacramento area to learn more creative ways you can display your jewelry. Please share with your friends, family, and fellow jewelry enthusiasts!

If the woman of your dreams loves all things retro or vintage, then why not stick to that theme when shopping for the perfect engagement ring to put on her finger? Before popping the big question, consider visiting your local Roseville consignment furniture and jewelry store to explore all of the beautiful rings that evoke that old Hollywood romance style that your special lady is so fond of. Here is our guide to shopping for a vintage engagement ring:
Consider Your Sweetheart's Lifestyle
One of the first considerations to make when browsing through the jewelry selection at your Folsom consignment store is your future fiancée’s lifestyle. Many older rings that were produced earlier than the 1920's and 1930's are incredibly delicate and therefore not as well suited for a woman who is constantly on the go. Be sure to ask the consignment store employees about the nature of the ring's prongs and metal and their suggestions for caring for the item.
Examine Her Jewelry Box Before Shopping
Before you begin your hunt for the perfect vintage ring, try to browse through your partner's jewelry box or carefully take note of the jewelry items she wears most frequently. You can even snap a photo of some of her current vintage jewelry items to bring to the consignment shop with you. If examining her jewelry drawer doesn't help enough, then bring her sister or a best friend along with you to the store.
Embrace Bolder Diamond Colors
Many vintage jewelry lovers are embracing the look of a colored diamond engagement ring these days. This hot trend features timeless colored stones in shades of light brown and light yellow. Another look you may want to surprise your loved one with is a vintage ring that combines colored diamonds with traditional white diamonds.
Are you ready to begin your search for the perfect vintage engagement ring? If so, then be sure to head into your closest Home Consignment Center in the Sacramento area. To learn more about our Folsom consignment or Roseville consignment stores, call (916) 302-4390.
