Hello! Today I’m sharing a few more images of the new place and how we have decorated it! I can’t wait to own a house someday and turn it into a home, but right now in my life, it’s nice to have my landscaping taken care of, a pool I can go to in the summer, and maintenance issues that get handled as part of my rent cost. For now, I am happy to be in this two bedroom apartment with Lauryn and our crew (she has two cats + my corgis Bruno and Oliver!).
Here is a peek into Lauryn’s room! She always has the cutest things (and the best makeup – but that’s for another post)! Her “Bushel & a peck” wall is from her grandmother singing the song to her when she was a little girl!
All of Lauryn’s decorative items come from Steinmart, Kirkland’s, Home Goods, and TJ Maxx – and her furniture is from IKEA.
Here is my bedroom! It took a lot of elbow grease to move all the furniture up the stairs, but we got it all in, and Andrew put up all my shelves and put my whole
room apartment together for me – such a gem! All of my furniture is from Ashley Furniture, and I don’t mean to brag, but my mattress is e v e r y t h i n g. My odds and ends are mostly from – you’ll never guess it – Target, and the rest of my things are gifts from friends or bought at TJ Maxx/Marshall’s/Home Goods.
My bathroom is smaller than at my last apartment, but I still have plenty of space to organize all of my things.
My closet is where I keep all of my jewelry, and even though I don’t have a lot of room for activities in it, I do like to keep it feeling homey like the rest of my space. I spend plenty of time in there deliberating back and forth on what to wear and which jewelry or shoes to pair with it (I’m a libra, after all).
That’s the tour! I’m sure we’ll continue to change things up and add items as time goes on, but for now, this really feels like home!
