Duvet Cover and Sheets

A good set of sheets should stay with you for many years if you take care of them properly. Avoid high heat in the washer and dryer, as well as bleach, brighteners and harsh detergents. Invest in linen sheets that will soften with use and only get better with age. Keep in mind that higher thread count sheets contain more cotton, which can provide them a longer life.


If you’ve already gone apartment shopping, you’ve probably noticed and been surprised by how expensive rugs are. Even though you will walk on them every day, a high-quality rug is actually a great investment. It should last long enough to be passed down from generation to generation! A handmade Oriental rug is a classic, and a natural fiber rug is also a safe option.

Timeless Furniture

It’s worth investing more in some timeless furniture pieces. They should be something you absolutely love though, not an expensive bar cart that you will get tired of after a year. Think more practical, like coffee tables, kitchen tables, dressers, and couches. If your style tends to flow with the trends of the year, stick to neutral items that will match with anything. Because you will probably spend the most money in this category, do you research. Browse the internet and magazines to find furniture styles you could see yourself loving for years and years.


Because you will put these plates out every day, you can spend a good amount of money here. You’ll want to find a simple, one-color set that you can use for any occasion. You’ll also need some sturdy silverware. This 77-piece set brings classic back to life and can be used for everyday or formal occasions.

These home items will probably cost you some real money if you purchase pieces that will withstand the test of time, but they will look great in our apartments for rent in St. Petersburg, FL and in your homes to come! Contact us and show off your style at Provenza at St. Pete today!
