City Studio Apartment Tour (324 Sq. Ft. – $655 Rent)

Hi Guys! Welcome to my home! I am so excited to show you guys around ūüôā . This blog post is a peek into my 324 sq. ft. uptown studio. As I have mentioned before, I recently moved from Ohio to the South a few months back. ¬†It’s been a whirlwind of adventures and I couldn’t have been happier with my decision for a life change. And lucky for me, I was very fortunate to get this affordable rental in the city center. Living in the city can get quite costly and the average apartment around here is over a grand (yikes!).

My studio is incredibly small but I absolutely love my little home Рit actually feels more like an upscale dorm room to be honest. My place came equipped with a ton of built-in storage, a mini kitchen, 20 foot ceiling, and even a walk in closet! With these additions to help organize my space, I often forget how small my unit is. It also took me a while to get my place fully decorated to my satisfaction but I am happy with the turn out. Being a natural homebody, I especially wanted to create a cozy oasis space that I could be comfortable in 24/7. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the tour of my home and get some decor inspiration for yours! Until next time! ~b

Chandelier Project

 

Whenever I decorate a space I make it a mission to add art pieces that I created. Not only does this make my home more unique but I also find the process of creating very fulfilling. It makes a style statement while also becoming a great conversation piece for my guest. For my college apartment, ¬†I loved the idea of having a classy light fixture. ¬† However, I knew the idea was not very feasible due to the small living arrangements and the hefty price tag for a chandelier. This still didn’t deter me from incorporating a little glamour into my quaint studio. In place of a real chandelier – I drew one instead. I digitally painted a chandelier to create a Gatsby-like illustration. Then I went to my local thrift store and purchased two three dollar frames. I was immediately drawn to the frame’s ornate details and its’ potential. Just by adding a quick coat of black spray paint – I gave the frames new life. Overall, the project took me quite a while but I’m very happy with my budget friendly creation. The finished art work became a chic centerpiece above my bed.

I filmed the whole transformation. I documented my steps by taking pictures for each drawing phase. After that, I was able to compile the images altogether to create a fast-lapse video. I hope you guys enjoy seeing the project take shape from start to finish! ~b

Bedroom Room Tour

 

Hi guys! In the next few blog posts, I will be sharing some home decor inspiration. I am starting this series in the order in which I lived in these places.

So first off is my old bedroom at my parent’s house (this was filmed about four years ago).¬†At this time I was still in the early stages of my college career and developing my sense of style. Looking back now, the super girly color scheme is borderline cringe-worthy (ha!).¬†However, I am still crazy about my old headboard display. I loved how it lit up at night and made the room feel extra cozy. ¬†It was also¬†very easy to make. All you need is a city silhouette decal, white string lights, and mini command hooks. Together the stringed lights spell out ¬†the word, ” Dream.” ¬†For me, this simple word went along with the saying, “Small town girl, big city dreams,” which depicted my background¬†and¬†where I aspired to be one day. Now that I do live in a city – I am still dazzled by the city lights and the feeling of limitless potential that they evoke. When you stand in front of a skyscraper you can’t help but feel like an ant staring at something grand. Anyways, hope you guys get some bedroom decor ideas from the video! Talk to ya soon!
