Did It Myself Pillows

The pillows on my couch have been one of those things that I’ve been vaguely unhappy with for like years – but only recently found it within myself to change, after building it up to be this massive undertaking in my head. I wanted something more to scale in the room, and in a lovely […]

An Airy & Light Bedroom

I finally, (FINALLY) took some photos of my ‘new’ bedroom! Before we get started, a few disclaimers. Okay, just one disclaimer. It’s really hard to take a good picture of my bedroom. It’s pretty small, and I don’t have a wide-angle lens, so this is about the best I can do right now.  Also, here’s […]

Easy Nightstand Upgrade

As you know, we recently underwent construction on the apartment, and I ended up upgrading our decor in the office and bedroom while we were at it. I still have a few things I want to get done before I take pictures and blog about it, but I thought I’d share some little projects I […]

Chair Update

Happy Monday! I am probably way too perky this afternoon – but I’m excited to share this project with you. I’ve had these weird green chairs for a while, and while I loved the shape, and actually I kind of loved the green fabric too, it just wasn’t doing a lot for my space. I’d […]

Big Changes

Yes, that’s my brother. No, he isn’t in charge of this project, thank goodness. So, this week got a little interesting. A project that we’d been wanting to do for a while (that begins with ‘c’ and ends with ‘losets’) got bumped up, meaning that this week we moved half of our apartment into the […]

Office Dreaming

sources: rug, ice cream print, pencil cup, succulent photo, tray I’ve slowly started taking steps toward upgrading my office. I bought fabric for my chair (I was going to fix it up this weekend but it was too cold, BOO weather, BOO!) and I’m waffling between painting a wall in a coral ombre (like this) […]

Vintage Office Chair

My office is kind of the final frontier as far as styling my apartment goes. While every other room may not reach the pinnacle of design and function that I have envisioned – like, I’m not saying that my home is the ultimate place to live and be – I would say that for the […]

It’s Nice To Have Something Soft Underfoot

. Area rugs are one of those purchases that I always thought were kind of out of my reach. The rugs I like are usually super expensive, and what am I, some kind of millionaire? I was hesitant to spend a lot of money on a rug for a lot of reasons – what if […]

Currently Coveting: Chesterfields

I am so over our couch. It’s the Ikea classic, the Karlstad, and while this probably isn’t surprising to anyone else, the couch has not held up to wear and tear over the past couple of years very well. It’s saggy, I can’t even handle the chunky blonde legs (we have the ottoman too, and […]

Styling the TV Stand

I posted about this on Instagram a few weeks ago -  I didn’t feel like the space next to my TV was looking very good. I liked all the pieces individually, but together it was a lot of brown. I was hesitant to add any more color, because I’ve been trying to keep this room […]
