Welcome to blog post #1, we hope to impress you! Both of us will be contributing to this one, and we’re going to start with interior design. Let’s take a look inside our apartments!
Kristin here! I’m going to give you a little blog tour of my apartment and hopefully give you some interior design ideas.
In my small hallway, I placed a set of drawers for my shoes. I decided to turn it into a chair I could sit on while I put my shoes on. All I had to do was add a cushion and some pillows on top. It’s cozy, convenient and adorable. Every once in a while, I treat myself to some new throw pillows to change the look.
Here’s my kitchen space. I decided to go for a wooden table and white chairs. I feel as though it’s a clean and sophisticated look. My favorite part? The tulips. I always have a vase of fresh flowers right in the middle of my kitchen table, and my favorite will always be tulips! I even matched them to my orange/reddish seats. Next on the list for my kitchen is a new area rug, I’m looking to get one through Rug & Home, an online rug store. I want one that matches my seats.
Last but not least, my bedroom. It’s small, but boy is it cozy! I would like to get a full size bed, but for some reason I don’t think it would fit wedged between those two walls. Blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations. I admit it’s simple, but sometimes simplicity works.
I love red! That explains my big red carpet in my living area. I paired the rug with white furniture so that the red would pop. While I love my furniture and my carpet, my favorite part is my big window. It brings in the perfect amount of natural light, and I enjoy looking out the window as I drink my morning coffee. Let’s just hope I don’t spill it on my white furniture! I’m extra careful.
Here’s a close look at my bedroom. It’s sort of always a mess, but I wanted to show you the colors and my adorable light up nightstands. They’re spunky and fun! When it comes to my comforter, I love a good two tone, that’s why I went with this one.
I saved the best for last, my glass kitchen table with wicker chairs. These chairs are comfort and style wrapped into one! It’s my favorite place to have some tea and read a good book.
Our apartments may be small, but they are our homes. Don’t let the size of your apartment impact style. If you have a small apartment of your own, here are some ideas worth seeing:
