A Blank Slate: My New Apartment


My heart has grown at least 10 times bigger since my last post. Oh my goodness, you wonderful friends out there. I love you so much. Thank you for your overwhelming messages of love and support. You sure know how to buoy a girl. I’m sending you all giant bear hugs.

Anywho, now that you know my news, I can share with you my new apartment. This place already gives me so many happy, peaceful, cozy vibes. I actually just moved last Friday so there is quite a bit of settling in to do. Sometimes I feel like I am trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. But that’s the fun part, right? I definitely think so!

So before I start showing you the apartment with all my stuff in it, I thought I would show you the blank state that it was the first day I got my keys.

It’s older. Nothing fancy. Finishes that I wouldn’t pick. Has brown carpet. But I FRIGGIN LOVE THIS PLACE. This is my place. All mine. I can do what I want (within the constraints of my lease that is) and it is what I make it. I am going to love the heck outta this place and make it warm, inviting, cozy, beautiful, light, pretty, and colorful. I am going to fill it up with everything that makes this place feel like a home. Cause stuff is stuff but it’s the feeling you bring to your home that matters.

So now that you’ve seen it empty, let’s get this party started! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve got up my sleeve!

PS – Confused as to why I moved or why my blog name has changed? Read this post to understand what’s happening in my life.

    Ok, here is the mom in me coming out. 1. Don’t ever leave your purse on the floor (dirt & bad karma) get a purse hanger or put on a doorknob, hook, chair. Lol 2. Add a deadbolt to doors & re-key your locks. Your too pretty to take a chance someone else has a copy. Put a hook eye lock on bedroom door(police told my sister in law this -she woke up w/burglar in room!). Face it you have a blog it is better to be safe than sorry. Not trying to scare you , this comes from a place of love. It is very exciting- new beginnings always are. Loooove what you do. Don’t forget there is a trick of hanging fabric with blue starch. I transformed my apt with hippie cotton wall hangings that then looked like wallpaper. I also used matching sheets to comforter set to wainscot my moms guest room. Also command hooks are your new best friend! Have fun & much love on your new direction.ReplyCancel

    • Oh Celia, thank you so much for your awesome comment! I truly appreciate everything you said and will take everything to heart! And I LOVE all those ideas with fabric! Can’t wait to try all these fun renter friendly decorating ideas!ReplyCancel

  • I can’t wait to see what you do to add your personality to this place. It looks quite roomy for one person!ReplyCancel

    • Yay! Me either! First thing is to rid it of boxes…haha! It is definitely a great size for one person! But I don’t think I would love it with two. I like my space too much!ReplyCancel

  • Looks great, fresh and inviting — much like our condo (that I still miss!). Enjoy making it your own!ReplyCancel

    • Thank you! I love the floor plan. Sounds like you did too in your condo! So good to hear!ReplyCancel

  • The apartment is so bright and welcoming! I saw what you’ve done with the space and I fell in love. It’s sometimes difficult to work with small spaces, but you’ve done an amazing job! It looks really cosy.ReplyCancel

    • Thank you so much! That means a lot to me! It is definitely still a work in progress but I am loving every second!ReplyCancel
