the fun part of moving in to a new place? decorating, of course. when i was a child, i wanted to be an interior designer, so furnishing/styling a room feels natural to me. i'm by no means an expert, but i do know exactly what i like and want, which i think is vital to making a house, apartment, or room feel like home.
fortunately, i've lived in an unfurnished apartment before (let's not discuss how much bigger it was!), so i had all the elements (sofa, desk, chairs, armoir, decor, etc) ready to be placed in this abode. a large white sofa and all black pieces were chosen, almost three years ago, because i knew they'd be the perfect blank canvas for accessorizing with various colors, dependent on the season & my mood. i think it's apparent that i'm currently having a blue moment.
everything is either thrifted, re-purposed, or from target/ikea/tjmaxx/anthropologie. what i'm trying to say is- you don't have to shop at expensive boutiques or antique stores to replicate designer rooms. in fact, the swan & brocade chair, pictured above, was found on the side of the road!
