Hey friends! I hope it was a long and restful MDW for all. The weather was beautiful and it really felt like the kickoff to summer. One of my weekend projects was to shoot my apartment so I can finally share my digs on the blog. Today, I'm revealing the living room. Highlights include wrought iron coffee and side tables that I spray painted gold, a repurposed kitchen cart etagere, my grandmother's typewriter and a hand-me-down coffee table painted pink. The blue rug is a clearance steal from Urban Outfitters and the gray stripe was an Ikea find. The braided dog bed was handmade by my mom (visit her Etsy store). An Ikea magazine rack shows off my collection of Cottages & Gardens mags and the curtains are from Home Goods—hemmed by me to accomodate the cove ceilings. A Victorian-style sofa from my Dad's office completes the picture.
