a clean, well-lighted place

My life is quickly progressing. I’ve gone from eating at a coffee table for the past 4+ years, to a lovely farm table.  I no longer have to pull out an entire drawer in order to open another one in my dresser. And now I’ve upgraded from lying on bed with my laptop on top of my chest to a bright white, clean workspace. My mom recently picked up this set from Home Depot as a apartment warming gift. Tim put it together on Monday and voila! A place to work, feels so good! I highly recommend it –  it’s sturdy and Martha Stewart.

apartment preview // happy weekend!


Happy Friday! Here’s a little sneak peek of a little section of the apartment that we have done. Found this little credenza off Craigslist. This weekend we’ll be picking up a few more things and hopefully have a visit from our moms! Have a good one! xx

Bed Envy

How cool would it be to go to sleep every night in sheets like these? I fell in love with Deny Designs sheets.  There’s even an option to make your own sheets with a photo.  Priced at around $199 for a (twin) set – it’s definitely pricey, but if you’re someone like me who only sleeps with a fitted sheet (it always ends up at the end of the bed when I wake up, so I boycott them!) it can be affordable! Above are a few of my favorites!

apartment finds – part one of many

As you may already know, I’m moving! This means I can’t really think about other things besides moving & furniture (which I never really cared about before). We have sold most of the little furniture we had and will be starting fresh which is a lot of fun because there are so many options out there.

The apt layout is one long rectangle with two pairs of french doors. I love how open it is but don’t want to clutter it up, so we are going to wait until we get in there to make some decisions. In the meantime, I’ve been searching for little trinkets and found a ton on Etsy. Here are a few that are at the top of my list.

spring cleaning

Now that taxes are done & the winter jackets are away, I’m ready to get organized. The way our room is set up, our closet is in the living room (I know!) & we are skimping by with one dresser (i get two drawers & Tim gets one 🙂 On top of this, we have a lot of art supplies & miscellaneous items (like shells & matches), so I’d love any or all of these pieces to get organized.

spring makeover

This past weekend, my roommate painted a wall in our living room Benjamin Moore’s cool aqua.  The color is refreshing & this one wall has completely changed the look of the room & has us in full makeover mode. Here are some pieces & ideas I’ve stumbled upon while shopping around, splurges & steals.
