The big move is coming closer and closer by the day! Dreaming of my new apartment has only increased since I last shared inspiration for my bedroom, and today I wanted to give you a glimpse into what I've been imagining for the living area. While I would love for there to be exposed brick and high ceilings with worn wooden beams, this is not the case. My apartment building will be brand new, construction completed next month, and I'll be the first one to live in my apartment. I'm hoping for bright walls and a big window, keeping the color palette neutral with bright pops.
We sold my black leather couch and chair when I left Baylor, so as soon as I'm back in Texas I will be scouting Craig's List for a good deal on a lighter one. A couple of cozy arm chairs would be ideal, but that might be pushing my limit and my budget. Storage is always at the forefront of my mind in the planning process. I have several white shelves I want to fill with baskets either in the entry or just inside the living area to work as a "home base" for the apartment.
A few other dreams include thrifted finds such as the above planter stands (Anthropologie but totally DIYable), the painted ladder with greenery, and a wall collage of lovely gold foil prints, the "Live Creatively" gem from Lindsay Letters included. My mom has an antique buffet table that I previously used as a TV stand and I hope to put it to good use once again. I wish I could mount the TV on the wall above it but were not allowed to hang anything. Well, at least not with anything other than command strips. Bah. Any thoughts/suggestions? I'd love your opinion on all of this!
