New Apartment

I'm finally having a life experience that most people have at either 18 or 22 years old... I guess I'm a little late... I'm finally going to live alone for the first time! The apartment is found, the lease is signed, & the boxes are being filled.

And the walls are TURQUOISE. Oh yeah.

Painting was a bigger undertaking than I expected, it's just a little studio apartment after all. turns out the panels have a vertical stripe indent, so a simple roller doesn't cut it. Also it takes aproximately 1 hour to tape the border, yet only 3 minutes to take it down. And I'm the messiest painter ever, notice the toes. But it's done & it's beautiful! I need to stock up on purple accessories for the living room corner.

Here's a "before" shot so you can see the whole thing. There's also a lot of storage in the basement so that'll help on space a LOT.

It's not much, but it's MINE. All mine!


  1. Congrats!! that's a fabulous colour!

  2. I can't wait to see it in person!! When are you moving and when can I come over to help accessorize?!?

  3. Now you can play Beyonce's "independent women" on loop... if you want. (it was off limits prior to this moment) I'm so happy for you and I'm coming by on Sunday to see it!

  4. That is a really big refrigerator for a studio apartment. How many square feet? The reason I ask is that my husband and I have leased a studio that is 520 sq feet (smaller fridge) so I'm always on the look-out for how people utilize the space in a studio. I love Apartment Therapy for that reason.
