my new place is coming together! it’s finally painted and i got a couch, two huge steps that if you had asked me two weeks ago i would have said were never going to get done! there’s still a lot to get done, mostly little things i want to add to put my personal touch on it, make it feel like home. i’ve been using pinterest a lot for inspiration and slowly but surely i’m getting a vision for what the final outcome will be! i’m currently coveting a lot, too much for one post (so stay tuned for more!) but my focus, for today anyway, is the extras, the little things.
i have an awkward shaped living room so i’m still trying to figure out exactly how i want to lay it out but i love how these are set up, simple and classy. i like the lamp in the top picture, and the coffee table books on the bench are perfectly styled. if i could figure out a way to make it work everything in this apartment would be blue and white, i’m actually pretty close to that right now but i’m trying to find ways to incorporate other colors and make it flow, i’m thinking i’m going to be adding pops of color in accessories like lamps, pillows and once i figure out how to style my bookshelves! i’m currently coveting those little garden stools in the blue and white living room, they would make great end tables!
i have an entire wall of built in bookshelves in my bedroom, they are gorgeous, and terribly empty. i’ve been trying to figure out exactly how i want to style them, let me tell you, styling shelves is a lot harder than all these designers make it look! i’ve been trying to pick a color scheme and general theme and then we’ll go from there, slowly but surely i’m making progress!
here are some things i’m currently coveting to add to a few of the spaces in my new home:
