It’s been a while! I don’t suppose disappeared bloggers ever have a truly convincing reason for…ahem…”disappearing.” So we shall skip the particulars behind the “why” of my blogging disappearance, and merely sit down to business. 🙂
One of the things that I discovered as of late is my interest in interior design. I never realized that decorating could be so much fun! And since I finally got my very own apartment some months ago, I decided to go all out! I painted several accent walls a light blue, refurbished several cheap pieces of furniture I found on Craigslist, and went thrift shopping for decor accents with great gusto.
I was so thrilled about how cute my place was starting to look, that I couldn’t stop posting pictures on Facebook. Suddenly, I was inundated with a multitude of ‘likes,’ and my friends began to encourage me to blog about my interior design exploits.
But I’m not THAT good, I thought. Plus the gods alone know how many interior design blogs already exist.
“Pinterest it!” one awesome gal kept insisting.
So finally, I did. 😉 Thanks to her, you can check out my interior design exploits via Pinterest too. I will be adding more pictures as time goes by.
For this first post, I wanted to give you a quick tour of my room. There are still several things I’d like to add to it, but for now it gives you a fair idea of my love of color and pastels! 😉 Future posts will detail before/after shots of how I painted my furniture. Because with the sole exception of my sofa, I can assure you that all my furniture was painted. haha
This is a little corner view of my daybed and side table. I LOVE this side table because it basically allows me to have 4 levels of awesomeness…
You can see how the bottom level is convenient for storing shoes. haha I never seem to have enough space for mine! The middle levels are perfect for storing magazines and books that I’m halfway done with. (I have a bad habit of reading 4+ books at a time! >_< )
The top level is great for resting my pretty sunglasses and my jewelry box. *Sigh*…
Now, this is the newest addition to my room. I’ve been wanting to get more into sewing lately, so I finally found the perfect sewing basket! 🙂 For now, I’ll be keeping it in my room. Isn’t it the cutest sewing basket, ever?!
The inside is sooo roomy, too! 🙂
Then of course…pastel purses!
We all know that accent chairs are for throwing clothes on top! 😉
Today, my bed had a lazy look to it! Mostly because my usual white quilt was in the wash today! 😉
Not sure I have enough color in my closet…what do you think? 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my room! Till the next time… 😉
