5 month later, my apartment is finally coming together! I actually feel like I'm living in a real home and not an empty warehouse now. While it still isn't as picture perfect as I'd like it to be (and it probably never will be) I wanted to create this post as a midway mark to show how far the place has come. The next and final update will be an in depth post that will include where you can find all of the items, prices, and maybe even a MTV style video tour. For now, you'll be seeing images I've taken over the past few months as things have slowly come together.
- THE LIVING ROOM -
My living room is my favorite place in the whole apartment. Partly due to the large water color inspired rug, and the crazy sculptural coffee table that I'm so glad I splurged on. A gallery wall with all my favorite artists is hanging over the grey mid century couch. The room is colorful and inviting while still remaining very refined and sophisticated.
- THE KITCHEN -
Since I wanted the kitchen to remain on the minimal side, the only thing added were 2 large back and white frames. The first image that says "Trust The Vision" I designed as a daily reminder to trust myself and to fully believe in all the things I plan on accomplishing. It includes two quotes by my favorite person ever, Oprah Winfrey. The second photo is by the #iconic Peter Lindbergh. Why have a personal trainer when you can have thin 90's super models staring you down as you try to reach for your second helping of pasta.
- THE BEDROOM -
The bedroom now has a large floor to ceiling mirror, grey shag rug, and a seek black dresser, but none of that really matters. I'm wayyy more excited about the statement painting I've been making to hang above the bed. This geometric piece is really going to help pull the room together bring in more shades of pink to this mostly grey room.
- THE BATHROOM -
With black and white geometric patterns covering this room, I decided to add a fierce monochromatic picture of Naomi Campbell. Smoking a cig and aiming a gun at an eye level view, I oddly thought it would be the perfect addition to the bathroom. Who doesn't love an unexpected touch.
