I do have the give the place some credit - it has come a loooong way from looking like a bachelor pad. But Joe and I are in a stage of our lives where we want the place to feel more like a home and less like a club house.
For this week, I'm focusing on ideas for our living area. For starters, I'm thinking the green wall has to go back to white. The orange wall stays because it was a gift to the previous owner by the artist Mark Millene so it has special meaning. That being said, it's still orange which presents a challenge with redecorating. I'm going to save the nitty gritty of painting for another post. In the meantime, here are a collection of home accents that I find inspiring. (Feel free to view more item on my Pinterest board.)
We definitely need more plants in the home. I think these large hanging air plants by mudpuppy are pretty cool. Also, I love mirrors. I think reclaimed barnwood framed mirror by Once Upon A Barn would help make our apartment look more spacious!
It's no secret that I'm obsessed with West Elm. Although we're working on a tight budget, I'm not sure that we would be able to swing this beautiful clark sofa - but I pinned it so I won't forget when it's time upgrade! These versatile lacquer trays would be a great solution to controlling the clutter under our our coffee table.
