Location: Burbank, California
This apartment is really special to me and my boyfriend because it is the first place we have lived in that feels like "home". When we decorate we like to find pieces that fit our personality as well as the space we are looking to decorate. Most decor is found at yard sales, flea markets or thrift shops. We like to find things that we can transform slightly (by painting it, etc.) to make it more our own.
When we look for furniture, we like to incorporate items that are a mix of modern and retro. We mix items from more corporate places such as IKEA then we may find something on the side of the road and decide it's perfect as a dresser after a new paint job or some new drawer pulls. I like to mix and match colors and patterns a lot in my furniture and accent pieces, but I understand that there is such a thing as too much. If I had to describe our style I'd say it's relaxed, comfortable, interesting and a little bohemian.
