I don’t think there is a thing I would change about this apartment. Check out the tour on apartment therapy: amazing outdoor space with vertical succulent garden built on an upright pallet, meticulous gallery wall in the bedroom set on amazing wallpaper, fun quirky pillows, color coded book shelf, globe collection……….such a happy place

Chandelier love

Image

My sister has an obsession with crystal chandeliers. I like ones that are a bit quirkier- like one I picked up in Thailand which I have still yet to officially hangĀ  that has pom poms, mirrors, and floral embroidery- trust me its amazing. I also love chandeliers in bizarre, non-traditional spots. Like bedrooms. Check out this round up by apartment therapy- the above one is my favorite- I also love color. You can find great chandeliers at thrift stores, consignment shops, etc- they don’t have to be super $$. IKEA even has some cool ones. Go ahead- add some flair to your bedroom!

Customized Plates

I think plates with quirkly clean designs are fun- but are usually very $$$ when found at stores like Anthropologie. I found this DIY post on apartment therapy where they used porcelain paint pens to doodle designs on plates and planters. This would be super fun to do for a friends birthday or special occasion with their initials, lyrics etc. Now if only I had better handwriting……

8 homes under 400 sq feet

This photo is of a 200 Square foot apt. I’m fascinated by the way people can organize and decorate small spaces, and make them look so livable and stylish (a wide angle lens helps too!). Click on the photo to see Apartment Therapy’s top 8 homes under 400 Square feet. Very inspiring

diy cord

Once again, apartmenttherapy.com does it again. I love myself some bright colors, and I hate ugly electric cords spouting all which ways out of the walls. This picture is an extreme version of covering cords on crack, but if you click the picture to the post, there are very easy ways (bright nylon string) to change ugly lamp cords, or guitar amp cords, into things of beauty!

Easy Re-Upholstery

Staging your home or decorating your apartment? I’ve seen a ton of great chair re-habs on ApartmentTherapy.com lately and have been keeping my eye out for a re-do piece. With some paint, fabric, foam and a staple gun or straight pins, you too can work wonders. This bench grabbed my eye on the website today- I love the bright colors. I’ll be posting a similar DIY my friends did to a beat up kitchen table and chairs next week!

Check out this amazing kitchen from a house tour on ApartmentTherapy.com (click picture to take you to the tour). Would you ever believe its from a house that is under 1,000 square feet?! Having a small home doesn’t need to mean sacrificing comfort or style.
