7- RENS Sheepskin

Interior designers are big fans of faux hydes or sheepskins at the home. They immediately add to your space, and IKEA’s RENS sheepskin is perfect to use as a rug or a throw on the end of your sofa. Not only is it cruelty-free (YAY!) it’s also only $29.99. #winning

We talk a lot about styling here at Wohomen, and we often find when we’re shooting spaces that even if a client has all of the furniture perfectly set up, sometimes a few accessories styled in their space make all the difference. We love these CYLINDER vases – they’re $18.99, and they’re perfect as terrariums, candy jars, or candle holders.
