I’ve finally finished decorating the apartment and I am so proud of it! It’s the first time I have lived somewhere and had full control over decorating decisions. In San Diego I had roommates, in DC I had roommates and in LA I lived with my sister but in Dallas I live with my bf and he sorta let me take the reins.
Of course it’s not a house so you can’t really make it your own but decorating helps!
I took it one room at a time and worked slowly and I am so glad I did. When I finished one room and the excitement of seeing it completed wore off, I would get started on the next. It prolonged my enjoyment. Of course, the decorating is never really finished. I am always scouring Home Goods, antique stores, World Market and Pier 1 for more items. I just love making my home a nice place to be.
Below is my completed apartment!
This was easy to complete considering it is a beautiful kitchen to begin with. Dark mahogany wood, granite counters, green sub-way tile back-splash, dark wood floor…all it took was a few easy touches. A golden peacock feather serving-tray from India, a cookbook display (which is extremely useful), a spice rack and a few odd- and-ends. It is my favorite room in the house.
So Winter is officially here! And that means snuggling up by the fire and drinking spice cider while reading a favorite book. If you’re like me, you love adding simple touches to your home to make it feel just a little more cozy. Here are some simple tips.
If you are lucky enough to have a fire place, you can actually light candles inside it instead of logs for a more Gothic/romantic ambiance.
