This week, our poor little apartment is under construction. A large section of the bedroom ceiling is cracked and the gap has been getting gradually bigger. That means we had to move our bed into a vacant unit in our building, and will be sleeping there for the next 5 days. The only positive thing is that the vacant unit is the closest to the laundry room – hooray for convenience and not having to walk up and down 3 flights of stairs to get clean towels!
However, having to empty out our bedroom and shove everything into are already packed living room helped me realize that I need to get rid of stuff – A LOT of stuff! I have too many side tables that take up too much room and way too many unnecessary things in my closet. A purge is needed, and that also gives me an excuse to move things around and redecorate a little bit.
Home decor is definitely a weakness of mine. I love making my apartment feel like a home, just by adding plants, artwork, or decorative pillows. Putting a lamp in a different corner of the room, or adding a small rug, can make all the difference. Like I said, it’s definitely a weakness/slight obsession.
That’s why I decided to create a page on my blog called HOME DECOR, which will include a gallery of pictures from my apartment, inspiration ideas, DIY projects and wish lists. I love seeing the way other people decorate their spaces, so I wanted to share some insight into my cozy downtown apartment with you.
I can’t wait to reorganize my bedroom once the ceiling is fixed, and add some updated pictures to my blog.
