I’ve lived in my current apartment for almost three years, and it’s time to purge. I have been feeling super claustrophobic lately – I just have too many things for my space. It’s not that I’m a hoarder, I just . . . like to decorate. I think I was a bit naive when I bought my first apartment, as I thought that it would have already been furnished and that all I had to do was move in. Obviously, this wasn’t the case so I had to make sure that I didn’t think the same thing twice. When the time came for me to look for a new apartment, I really loved some of the ones as shown on Space Stations website and even admired their chosen decoration so I decided to go for a similar vibe when I decorated it the first time around. But now I just feel a bit claustrophobic within my space. So, to help me get a reality check and share this winter cleaning bug, I decided to bring back an old series I know many of you loved – small city living spaces pinspiration!
My under the bed organization could seriously use some improvement. It’s actually such a hassle getting out my storage bins that I pretty much avoid it at all costs. I love that this bed is high enough to store a lot and still gives you access from the outside.
I’m obsessed with this little living room. So clean, so organized, so bright. Everything has its place, and its place is not strewn across the coffee table (like most of my life mostly is).
In every woman’s never ending struggle . . . storing pots and pans is still annoying. This little trick is temporary, so it’s perfect for renters, but only solves your situation for a few lids, which is all us single gals need, right?
I stared at this photo of a bathroom for an unusually long time. The color scheme. The attention to detail. The matching towels on the awesome shelves using all of that vertical space. I now have bathroom decorating aspirations. One of my friends has been giving me lots of design ideas for my bathroom. She’s even told me about replacing the shower curtain for a glass panel shower door because they look nicer and they’re easier to clean apparently. That would probably give me more shower space and the more space I can have in the shower, the better! I think people often overlook the importance of a nice bathroom but I definitely don’t. It’s one of the most important rooms in the apartment in my opinion, which is why I’m so keen to make some changes to it. Maybe I’ll have to have a look at getting a new shower installed soon! I’ve been looking at websites like www.moffettplumbing.com/areas-we-serve/plumber-irvine-ca/ to see if a plumber would be able to do the job for me. I’d also like to get a new toilet installed but that’s only an idea at the minute! However, I’m also excited to be looking at smaller ways to decorate my bathroom too.
This idea is so simple, yet so amazing to me. If you’re in a studio with a big (small) open space, push a dresser up against your bed, and stack it with pillows. Your bed instantly becomes a movie watching oasis. Please invite me over.
I hope these got you inspired. If you need me, I’ll be listing my clothes on Poshmark, or, binge watching Sons of Anarchy. xx
