welcome sign hello

On the list of top life events, moving into a new home or apartment is definitely all the way up there, probably high enough to make the top five. So much goes into choosing a new home that you can literally spend months trying to find the perfect one. When you finally do, that's when the real stress begins. Figuring out how to decorate, finding the right furniture, and picking the right accents can seem like a lot. But once you get started, you'll see that's actually the fun part.

Plus, there's no better way than settling into a new home than with a housewarming party. Your guests will probably show up with useful, beautiful items you didn't even know you wanted or needed. Don't underestimate the value of a good housewarming gift. It can be the missing touch to your modestly decorated house or your Kylie Jenner-inspired glam pad.
