New Apartment Preview

Well the move is complete, but I am still not finished decorating. I've had several people ask for pictures of the new place, and though it's far from done, I've finally decided to share. This is a very quick, terribly shot preview, but a preview none the less. I still have a long way to go, a lot of stuff to get on the wall, and details to buy and finish.

I am so in love with the bedding I purchased for my bedroom. I initially wanted navy, but I fell in love with this print called Teaberry by LC. It's just the right balance of girly without making my boyfriend never want to visit because it's so dainty. I plan on putting a shelf over the bed which I will fill with Katie Daisy prints once they arrive in the mail. I think I may also set up my desk underneath the window there.

Unlike my old apartment, my living room and dining area are attached. And since I didn't get to use the coral, navy, turquoise color scheme I have been wanting to implement for some time now, I managed to accidentally use it in this room. I found this precious table runner at Homegoods for $6 and it was the start of my theme. I went with coral, navy, and more mint/turquoise in the living area. I painted my center piece and some frames on my unfinished bookshelf gold, and I also hope to find gold flatware to use here as well!! The china is Italian Countryside by Mikasa that I found for a whopping 75% off! Holy deal, batman!!

I have some great salmon/coral curtains that need to be hung once I find a curtain rod long enough that isn't going to cost me $75! These pillows probably won't stay, but they were leftovers from my old apartment and will do just fine in the meantime. I am absolutely obsessed with my rug that I purchased from Target.

So for now, this is where you can imagine me blogging from. There are obviously still a lot of improvments to be made, and then I"ll take you on the official  non-cell phone pic tour.


  1. Love it! It's going to look great when it's all done.

  2. It looks great so far!! I am still in the process of decorating my new apartment too! LOVE that rug! Can't wait to see more!! :)
