My Apartment Details

bando one day at a time plannerย If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I shared a sneak peak of my desk situation and it gave me the idea to share some more details of the rest of my apartment!

As a disclaimer it’s important to know that my apartment is nowhere near finished – in fact, I don’t even have a complete bed (super long story) or a dresser LOL! It’s safe to say there’s been an issue with every piece of furniture I’ve ordered (the first couch I purchased wouldn’t even fit into my apartment hallway), but it’s slowly coming together.ย Nonetheless, I’m really proud of the progress I’ve made thus far and thought I’d give you a glimpse into what I’ve been working on!

pink accent pillowsAfter the whole ordeal with my couch, I was lucky enough to be able to purchase the loveseat version in the same collection and it fits perfectly! The original one would have been way too large, so I’ve been saying it’s a blessing in disguise. It’s so nice to have something to just relax on after a long day of work, instead of hopping into my bed.

I purchased the pink and jeweled pillows at Tuesday Morning and the grey pillows came with the couch. At first, I was thinking I’d get rid of them – but I actually really like them!cute serving traysMy coffee table is still a work in progress, but this is where it’s at right now. I’m so in love with the table itself! It’s intended to look like grey wood, but it’s super smooth so that you don’t get any splinters.

I want to add some pretty coffee table books and some other little gold accessories, but I do love the tray! I think the print is super pretty and it’s very me. The coasters I purchased from Sur la Table and I’m obsessed. The green/teal color is one of my favorites, so I had to have them. They’re just too pretty!rugs usa pink rugsNow, this is just a little peak at my rug. You can view the full thing here. Let me tell you, this is probably my favorite thing in my apartment! I’m surprisingly not super into the color pink (I know – it’s very odd because everything in my apartment is pink), but when I saw this rug I knew this was the one. The pattern is simply gorgeous and it makes the entire room! It comes in multiple sizes so I would totally recommend this!

    That rug is perfection!!! If my husband would let allow that much pink I’d put it in our living room in a heartbeat!! Maybe I could get a smaller version for my office though! Hmm….I think I need to do some shopping ๐Ÿ˜€ You did such a great job decorating- I love the pillows too! Well done!
