If you've never been to a HomeGoods before, then you've been living under a rock (a poorly decorated one!). I kid, I kid. HomeGoods has played an important role in my shopping routine for many years now, along with its sister brands T.J.Maxx and Marshalls. However, my recommendation to shop here comes along with a warning. DO NOT GO OVERBOARD AT HOMEGOODS. It has happened to the best of us. Offering an overwhelming array of home decor items ranging from furniture to dog beds, it is a great place to find some finishing touches to a room. I have found some really beautiful items over the years including baskets, lamps, and mirrors. I also love it for bath linens, bedding, and cute paper napkins. At the same time, I think half my basement is full of HomeGoods impulse buys. Do not follow in my footsteps. A good piece of advise is this, resist most of the faux natuical decor including boat parts, starfish and anchors. I would rather see you go to a marine consignment store for these items and at least bring some authenticity to the space.
