How much did it cost you to decorate your 1 bedroom apartment in a HCOL city?

I will be by myself.

I have little-to-no furniture right now.

I want furniture that will last a few years, but doesn't have to last more than 5 for sure.

My estimate browsing through Wayfair was around $3k $4k for basics - is that realistic?

I think it depends on what you want, your aesthetic, and other factors. I personally really recommend waiting to buy as much stuff as possible (if you don’t mind secondhand). If you’re in a HCOL city, there are probably really good deals to be had for when people move out. I’ve seen beautiful armoires, dressers, and couches for very little or free because people just can’t get rid of them in time. I’ve gotten several enormous and beautiful mirrors for free. Also u can Find furniture stores in Maryland

I also live in a one-bedroom apartment! Things I have bought from Wayfair that were worth it: nightstands ($130/ea), dresser ($450), bedframe ($400). I like a mid-century modern aesthetic and these were all dupes of much more expensive pieces from West Elm. I have had them for almost 4 years and they are sturdy pieces. I think paying extra to have "in-home" delivery is worth the extra versus having to haul it up from the mail area.
