Apartment Finds: Ottomans

My apartment has definitely come together in a lot of ways over the last few months! I love how homey it feels when I walk in the door. But I’ve also learned that decorating is a constant work in progress, I don’t think I’ll ever feel like it’s finished. I am always thinking of new things I want to do in my space (that also falls within my budget!) The next thing on my apartment list is a new ottoman. Right now I have this old pink cube from college that doubles as extra storage (a necessity in any tiny NYC apartment!). Unfortunately it is starting to fall apart and the pink isn’t exactly as bright or clean as it used to be. In an effort to update my apartment aesthetic (and storage!), I decided to search for a few new options. Here are my favorites so far!

Keeping with a navy blue theme, this pattern is a great pair for my brown faux leather couch.

Newtown Storage Ottoman

I love the shelf beneath this ottoman. I can store all my favorite coffee table books without getting in the way of putting my feet up. It also comes in a cute floral pattern that could work too!

Classic Collection Vintage Script Fabric Round Storage Ottoman

This one reminded me of a postcard!

For my space, I am clearly looking to incorporate navy! Since my curtains and bedding have touches of navy, I want to make sure my ottoman doesn’t feel out of place. The great thing is that there are plenty of options out there! I don’t think I’ve found a winner yet, but I’m not giving up.
