The long weekend called for more unpacking and decorating (of course)! Last weekend we focused primarily on the living room and this weekend we shifted our energy to the two bedrooms. Our apartment has two bedrooms and we decided to convert the larger room into a walk-in-closet/office and keep the focus of the smaller room as a cozy and serene little space for sleeping. Jordan and I both love clothes and shoes so teeny-tiny apartment closets wouldn’t really work for us to share (unless we wanted to rip out each other’s hair!).
Now that the basic structure of the room is in place and we have been able to organize our clothes/shoes and my purses/jewelry I can focus on decorating a bit. For me the biggest challenge in this room is adding bits of decorations and art without going too crazy and creating a space that is overly cluttered. My first apartment was so covered in photos, there wasn’t any wall space. It looked SO busy! Since so much of the space of this room exposes shoes/bags/jewelry I don’t want to go overboard with the decorating but still see the room as too plain as is. I’m daydreaming about a nice accent rug in the middle of the room and already have a few prints from The Preppy Print Shop framed and ready to hang as soon as my creative assistant is willing to assist me (;
Hopefully these short weekly apartment updates aren’t boring you guys too much. Tracking my weekly decorating process is really inspiring me to keep going and I love being able to see my progress along the way. I can’t even express how happy I am that this “closet” is no longer just a room filled with boxes and pretty wallpaper. I have already really enjoyed getting ready in here and I can see myself studying and doing homework in this room when I start grad school in June.
If you have any decorating tips please share! I’m loving learning bits and pieces about interior design and want as many tips as I can get.
I hope your Memorial weekend was refreshing & relaxing!
