When I started decorating my empty shell of an apartment in New York's East Village, the most unexpected purchases turned out to be the most transformative. A cream rug hid the orange-tinted floorboards and made the apartment look modern, strategic mirrors drenched the once-dim living room in natural light, and a set of simple black drawer pulls I bought on Etsy completely changed the look of our dated kitchen.
The pulls were among the cheapest items we bought for our home, at about $6 each, yet they're the item guests tend to notice. Although small, they make our cabinets look uniform and expensive, and they tie in with the black iron furniture in our living room. What's more, they took about three minutes to screw into place. What's not to love?
