Benny and I actually began moving into our new place in October. We had everything officially in the apartment by the end of October. It just seems like I’ve been slowly moving stuff around until everything found a home. So I’m excited to finally show our place off!
We were so fortunate that basically all of our furniture in our old place worked in our new place.
I’m not saying I’m the best at decorating, but I really love playing around with it. I have a couple extra boxes of vases and other things to decorate with that I keep around so I can move things around whenever I need a change.
This is what’s right above our couch. I love a gallery wall : )
While we have more storage at this apartment we still have to be creative with storage.
One of the things that attracted me to this apartment was that it recently been all renovated. It’s so nice knowing that we’re the first ones to use the kitchen, bathroom and washing machine. Oh and that was another thing that I loved about this apartment, we have our own laundry machine right there behind that white door. It’s the little things : )
My pink (Raspberry Ice) KitchenAid blender and mixer are my favorite thing from our wedding registry. I’ve created a little smoothie station with my blender since I make one pretty much every day and I’ve named my mixer Stella : )
I love all of our stainless steel appliances. I feel so spoiled.
I love my plants, any windows that can hold them has them. We even have little seedlings started in egg cartons around the apartment (I hid them from the pictures). We have an outdoor space that we just got some patio furniture for. I’m hoping to have a little garden and some planters as well.
Our table even fit!
We had a navy blue accent wall behind our bed in our old apartment that I really miss. That accent wall was such a pain for Ben to paint over when we left that he didn’t want to do the same thing at this apartment.
We don’t have a headboard for our bed so we use this floating shelf as the focal point instead.
We’re on the second floor of a house so when I saw this extra space in the gable I knew it would be the perfect place to do my makeup. This desk was the only new piece of furniture that we purchased from Wayfair. It came with two little stools that we keep at the end of our bed as sort of a bench since the desk sits in front of our heater. Then I purchased the three baskets to use as drawers from the Container Store.
A closer up of my makeup desk. The big photo frame actually opens up and all of my jewelry is stored inside of it. I often find myself staring at all the pictures while I get ready… it has all my favorite people in it : )
My dresser that I’ve had since I was a little girl.
Finally this is the little space at the top of the stairs where you enter our apartment. I love these slider boards that came from Pottery Barn. I had them above my desk with a chalkboard (now in our kitchen) at our old place, but I think it works great as a place for us to drop our keys and mail off when we come in the door.
There’s one more space that I haven’t shared in this post because I think it deserves it’s own blog post… my office! That’s coming next week so check back!
