It has been a year now since I started packing for what I thought would be a three month stay in Dallas… We were living in Houston, I moved into the family’s garage apartment whose kids I was a nanny for. After that summer we decided to leave Houston and move back to Dallas. We put all of our things (I mean, seriously, almost everything) into storage. An inaccessible pod storage. From September to March I lived with my mom, in a room I hadn’t decorated dreaming about how I would decorate when I moved out. Then we got the (awesome) opportunity to move to Seattle and live in a corporate rented and furnished apartment.
Everything in this apartment is pretty basic except some horrific pillows and “artsy” landscape photos. I am dying. I spend so much time in the apartment and it is so bland. I have a major itch to decorate. I have been wildly pinning inspirational spaces. Living like this for so long now has really helped me realize which pieces of ours I love and which pieces I can live without. I am a little mixed on my dream aesthetic, but I know that I want a thoughtful space. I am giving the apartment a few key accessories to help it out, and when I am finished I will share it with you. For now, here is a smattering of looks I love. It is a random ass assortment. But that is how my mind feels right now. A little random.
