I’ve been leading up to this reveal for some time now.
I shared the inspiration for the space here.
And… a bunch of pics on my Instagram of small projects I was completing.
As you may know, I’m in love with small spaces and I’m on a mission to help you guys creatively decorate your own small homes. I live in a one bedroom apartment and run my business entirely from home, so it’s important that my home looks great and is functional for both living and working.
Now, that I’m done decorating my living room (well, sort of… I just have a couple more items I want to get), I can finally show you around.
(Above) Remember the DIY faux fur bench post I did a few weeks ago? Well, I didn’t really have a place for it. When I realized I didn’t have another side table, I put it next to the sofa and I LOVE it here. I can put a solid surface on it like books or a small tray and then it’ll be functional as a place to put drinks and other small knick-knacks. Then, when I need extra seating, I can pull it out.
I purchased the two furry pillows from Pier1 and the black and white cow print is from my shop. I’m making more pillows to put on the sofa. I’ll update you guys when they’re finished.
I love black and white, so it was only right that I chose this chevron rug from RugsUSA. It’s a 100% wool rug and is extremely easy to keep clean. I’ve already had to clean up stains from my dogs dirty paws and had no problem getting the stains out.
(Below) My canvas cow art from Kirklands is one of my favorite parts of the room. It seriously makes me smile everyday. It’s not a piece I would normally chose, but I fell in love with the colors.
I love my Nat King Cole print from Etsy, so it had to go up on the wall.
(Above) My sconces from Lighting Etc. are so beautiful. The design is very unique and really stands out on my gray walls. I love them next to my cow print canvas art. So unexpected.
My sconces are not installed. I usually have really ugly black cords hanging from them for light but I removed the cords for photo purposes. I’m still in the process of having the wiring done (with my landlord’s approval, of course).
Check out the beaded detail.
I shared photos of my chairs on Instagram. I bought them for $26 a piece from Target. One was blue and the other was gray in a cotton blend fabric. The orange vinyl is such a cute pop of color in the space. I NEVER use the color orange, so everyday these are a fun surprise for me.
The beaded pillows were purchased from Pier1.
I am so glad that I used this system for my wall shelving. I purchased it from Home Depot and it’s been incredibly convenient. It’s only 12″ deep, so it doesn’t take up much space, but it’s still deep enough to put books, mags, accessories, and our TV on it. It’s also fully customizable.
(Below) I couldn’t find a pot at the right size for my plant, so I simply braided some yarn and wrapped it around the pot the plant came in.
Zebras are my favorite, so when I saw this zebra print chair on Etsy, I had to have it!
I purchased this vintage art from a flea market last year. It came framed. It’s probably my favorite item I’ve EVER owned.
The color print in the back is from one of my favorite shops on Etsy, Pikabrit. Check her out, guys!
I use this basket under the shelves to hide DVDS, games, and an extra blanket.
I have a bunch of other pics that’ll I’ll share over time, but I didn’t want to make this post too long. I’d love to know what you guys think!
