Part of the excitement of moving into a new home is getting to decorate it! When you move into your luxury apartment at Castle, you’ll want to be prepared to make it all your own. A great place to shop for luxury pieces for your Port Chester apartment is Etsy. Known as an online marketplace for buying and selling unique items, Etsy is a one-stop shop for finding everything you need for your home. From artwork and aprons, to curtains and cups (and everything in between), you can find wonderful housewares that none of your friends or neighbors will have. These unique Etsy finds will be the perfect finishes to your luxury home at Castle’s apartment community.

 

Etsy 101

If you’ve never shopped on Etsy before, there are a few things you need to know before you get started. First, you can either do a broad search, or you can use categories and filters to help narrow down what you’re looking for. You can type anything into the search bar and get thousands of results. However, if you set up a country filter, you can choose to see items only from the United States. Similarly, if you’re looking for something very authentic from another country, you can set up a country filter for that specific place. You can also get hyperlocal and just shop for items that originate from New York! As well, you can set filters for price or get descriptive with your search queries, such as typing in “silk throw pillow cover” as opposed to “pillowcase”. Once you’ve mastered searching on Etsy, you can find exactly what you need for your Castle apartment! Below are some of our top luxury picks from Etsy’s vast collection.

 

Finds for Your Living Room

Your living room is the focal point of your home. Dress it up great furniture and decor pieces!

Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table

Reclaimed wood is popular in home decor right now. One of our favorite ways of incorporating this trend into your home is with a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture, such as a coffee table. This one from Etsy shop, DendroCo features wood that is over 150 years old!

Elegant Planters and Trays

Add visual interest to your coffee table or any other surface in your living room (such as a window sill or shelf) with a beautiful glass planter or tray. Both of these decor elements provide you with a way to neatly organize plants and knick-knacks. The Esty shop, Janel Foo Glassworks, has many options that can fit a wide range of personal decor styles.

Finds for Your Kitchen

When you invite friends over for dinner at your future Castle home, your gourmet kitchen is sure to “wow” them. They’ll gather around the kitchen island to admire your European-style cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Complete the look with a few elegant touches from Etsy!

Magnetic Spice Rack & Shelf Combo

Anything that adds style and function to a kitchen is definitely a must-have. We love this spice rack from Colfax Products because it holds spice jars and doubles as a shelf! Also, its sleek design will go well with a beautiful Castle kitchen.

Beautiful Wall Art

Sometimes kitchens and dining rooms are overlooked when it comes to art. Any room of the home can benefit with the added classic touch of wall art, even a kitchen! While it’s not necessary to have a painting or print of something kitchen-related (you could hang a picture of a cute dog if you really wanted to!) we do like the idea of everyday items inspiring pretty and unique paintings. A perfect example of this is Etsy seller Thenobleowl’s water color print of an elegant tea set.

Monogrammed Towels (that work for your bathroom, too!)

Nothing is more classically elegant, while still being personalized, than a monogram. They’ve grown in popularity lately, making their way on to various home decor items, such as pillow cases, blankets, and more. We like this towel design from Get Stitched by Steph because it’s classy, yet modern, and comes in several sizes. Keep a smaller one in the kitchen to dry dishes and a larger one in the bathroom to use after a shower!

 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many wonderful treasures to be found on Etsy, so we’re sure you’ll find just what you need in order to give your future luxury apartment at Castle the style and personality it deserves.
