When shelter-in-place orders hit the U.S., my boyfriend and I had just returned from a vacation in Kauai to an apartment we’d barely moved into. We were the proud owners of a bed, a couch, one desk, 10 plants, and a couple rolls of toilet paper. The first few weeks were… I’ll call them romantic: picnic dinners on the floor, work on the couch, etc. By the second month, we’d splurged on essentials and hung some things on the walls. But now it’s six months later, and I need to make this apartment a place I want to be every single day.
Even if you didn’t kick off the pandemic in a new home, I can venture to assume you’re also in need of an interior overhaul, especially since it seems we’re going to be living in our home office/gyms well into 2021. That sounds daunting—I know—but with Affirm, I can purchase all the pieces of furniture and décor I want from my favorite brands like West Elm, Design Within Reach, Shoppe Amber Interiors, Lulu and Georgia, and McGee & Co., then break the cost into simple monthly payments with an APR as low as 0%. With Affirm, I’ll never pay more than I agree to upfront because they’ll never charge me late or hidden fees (ever).
Plus, it’s super easy to use at any of the retailers: All I do is select Affirm as my payment option at checkout, and I see exactly what I owe upfront. All the work is done for me, and sooner than I’d be able to otherwise, my apartment is becoming the dream living space I’ve been wanting. Keep reading to see the home items I’m buying now.
