lighting

Can I talk about how much I hate filling in the “subject” line of blog posts? I feel like it’s so incredibly difficult to come up with something that will make you want to immediately read what is to follow. I mean I only go to blogs to look at the pretty pictures and never even notice the subject line. I say just get to the point because I want to get to the pictures and the point of this post is lighting. Heck, we’re not even gonna talk about it really. I just pulled together these lamps I’m obsessed with and am just leaving it at that. Well, that’s a lie. I’m actually “talking” about lighting because when I walk into my apartment at night, I enter into darkness because there is no light to turn on. I’m working on fixing that problem. Hopefully I can conjure up one of these babies for my living room so when I flip the switch I see one of these beauties staring back at me. (I wish)

Okay, now for what you’re really here for:

new space inspiration

Well, I’m moving into a new place in a little over a week and I have nothing to fill it with except a couple vintage chairs, my clothes, a desk, and other random decorative and shop supply items. I’m basically starting from scratch. Including a bed, as in, I don’t have one. It’s a little scary but pretty exciting because I was so sick of all of my belongings from my college years and am ready to update my space to reflect my current taste.

So, I’ve pulled together some images of awesome interiors that I’ve pinned over the years in order to get some inspiration for my new place. (I’m thinking about sharing my decorating progress on the blog. yay? or nay?)

A total contradiction to my shop, right? Well, I decided I wanted a calming oasis this time around and I feel like neutrals in natural textures will help achieve that. We’ll see what develops over the next few months, though, because most of the time I tend to purchase very colorful things…

Stay tuned!

 

 

MOODY MONDAY

And “Moody Monday” continues with a cabin look for those of us who like to experience woodsy living in style, or if you’re wanting an outdoor feel in your tiny city apartment.

MOODY MONDAY

So I’m going to attempt to create some kind of style or mood board every Monday (hints the name “Moody Monday” –  because who isn’t…). I figured if I assigned a certain topic to a day of the week, it would make posting a bit easier and more consistent. I’m still trying to figure out Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Oh yeah, and Friday. So…I’ve got some brainstorming to do.

Anyway, to start off the first official Moody Monday post, I’ve got a living room for those girly, modern, rustic ladies out there. I’m really into these colors right now (coral, cyan, olive, black & white, and turquoise). They keep popping up in my pins (I do A LOT of pinning these days).
