I've gotten a few requests for photos of my own apartment. Whether it's my interest in interior design, or my love of do-it-yourself projects, I wave a huge flag in the camp of "design can make all the difference". My apartment is nothing spectacular, and it's located in a small building in a less-than-desirable part of town.
But...the bones were great! Lots of natural light, super high ceilings and large, uninterrupted walls. Two bathrooms and a rooftop deck don't hurt either.
My sewn-in-the-middle-of-the-night curtains (19 feet long!). My dream rug, found online for one-third of the price. And a row of cheap-y plants from IKEA.
Twenty-plus-foot ceilings left some struggles when trying to add color. I opted, instead for an accent wall, and gave it a 9-foot snap line to draw some warmth and coziness to the reading corner.
Perhaps the worlds' smallest bathroom. My girlie nonsense can't ever be as spread out as I would like, but I think the cabinet doors would tell a different story, altogether.
Amazing what crisp, white sheets can do to freshen a room. Plus (not that you could tell), I used a blue-toned white for the main wall to tie together all the cooler tones and add some calm to the bedroom.
