New Home, New Blog

Updated: Dec 26, 2021

Hello, there!

It's been ages since I've done any sort of blogging, but I'm really excited to be back and to be doing it with purpose!

For many years - probably since I rented my first apartment - I've always loved interior design and decorating. For me, each empty room is full of possibility and opportunity! I've taken on many a DIY project over the years to try to create interesting spaces on a limited budget. I've picked things up off the side of the road and tried to turn them into something beautiful and interesting. When you're a college student and broke young adult, it's what you have to do. But one thing always held true: It's important to me to create a space that feels like home.

Over the years, my style has evolved and (thankfully!) my budget has, too. When I lived alone for the first time in a 420 square foot studio apartment, I was finally able to create a space that was 100% me (love you, past roommates, but compromise is hard!). And it was the first time I actually *bought* things to furnish my place. And so began my love affair with I learned that I really love blue, in many shades. I learned how to buy a room-appropriate sized sofa. I learned about using different textures and shades to create a cohesive style. I also learned that you don't have to furnish your apartment all at once and throw yourself into debt doing it (oops).

Fast forward a couple years, and my boyfriend (now fiancé) and I moved in to our first apartment
