Doesn’t that crack you up? It does me – because it sounds very snooty and fanciful – very professional if you will. I certainly don’t have any “professional” ideas when it comes to decorating but I definitely have ideas.
When I bought my first home, a lot of the things I brought with me to my home were things I’d had for a lifetime: my bedroom from my teenage years, living room furniture courtesy of my parents, a desk from my college days….you get the drift, right? I also feel like I wasn’t 100% certain what I wanted out of “the look” of my own place, so I went with the things I had and worked from there.
Well – very soon I will (finally) have my own place again. It’s just a one bedroom apartment space (that is yes…in the basement of my parent’s home…) but it will be MY space and let me tell you – I have got ideas this time. Oh boy do I have ideas.
Please feel free to peruse those above images – I maybe should have crammed them together – but I didn’t. Eons ago I purchased the most wonderful pillow from Ikea (which I have put below) and it is literally what my entire open area living room/study/dining area has been patterned around. Talk about taking something and running with it…right? I also long ago found a gray couch at Ikea that I thought I loved, but I think I’ve moved on to the above pictured couch (in gray…not pale brown/tan).
My bedroom is pretty much a done deal – but I thought I’d share it anyway! I redid my bedroom about a year ago in shades of gray and buttery yellow and I love it! I bought a bed frame way back in the Spring on sale and I can’t wait to get it out and set up…and I also can’t wait to get my cute little gray chair (pictured below) and get it set up – it’s on it’s way now! I’ll be adding some black bookshelves (which I already have…but don’t currently have a place for…) and a gallery wall or two and everything there will be all set!
So – I don’t know a whole lot about design aesthetic…but I know what I like…and I know what I’d like MY space to look like. Thankfully, I already have about 75% of what I need to make this happen, I’ve just got to get some more pieces here and there to make it work!
