In response to requests from my girlfriends (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love checking out other people’s places), I’ll be posting pictures from our apartment to give you a mini apartment-tour!
I am not super creative and most of what we have is a combination of what we had individually before we got married & stuff we bought immediately into our marriage – since which time my tastes have significantly changed. Also, there are a lot of weird things about apartments in Brazil, so…not the easiest canvas either. That being said, we have more than we need or could ask for and are thankful for all of it. 🙂
First up on the tour is the Living Room:
Pillows: Layla Grace (multi-colored) and Furbish Studio
SF Print: Ikea
Couch: Pottery Barn
Gray Side Chairs: Home Goods
Brazilian Cowhide Rug: purchased in Columbia, South Carolina 🙂
Chunky Knit Throw Blanket: Made by my Aunt Sheryl!
Things I still want to do in here:
1) I would love to paint the room a pale gray to give it a little more character / definition.
2) I am in debate about putting up drapes. I usually love them but the space is so small I’m not sure if it would crowd it too much…? If I did anything I think they would need to be light / sheer.
3) The floor lamp…should I paint it?? I’m not a fan but am trying not to buy much home stuff until we move into an actual HOME one day, at which point I’ll want to get a lot. 🙂
4) If you are wondering about the “coffee table,” it’s an Ikea coffee table and side table pushed together. We bought them right after getting married as a temporary solution until we found something we loved, but never found the right thing and kind of forgot about it…
