Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: It’s a studio apartment that has the best views in town, close to everything, and the first place that I can really call my own! The perfect space for you to create and just be at peace.
What is your favorite room and why? The main bedroom area, for sure. I’m just so satisfied with how it came together. I used to feel like I had to stick to some type of “theme,” and once I just began to add things that I like, I discovered my own “theme” and ran with it.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Naturally minimal, quirky, contemporary apothecary.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? Most likely a plant. But I will say the best thing I’ve invested in recently is a projector to watch films on. I kept the walls sort of bare for this purpose.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Yes, take no one else’s “advice” but your own! I, personally, LOVE how my apartment looks! There have been people that have commented on how they dislike my bed placement, how they think certain parts of the apartment seem too “sterile,” etc. If they aren’t paying the rent, they get no say, period. It’s your space to do as you please, and there’s such a uniqueness and freedom in that! I take so much pride in sharing what I’ve done with it, and would encourage everyone else to do the same!
