I hope you have a wonderful weekend! My Saturday is dedicated to making some much-needed and long awaited changes to our apartment. I've been so busy lately that most days I come home and fall right into bed and am out the door as soon as I'm ready the next morning. So, to celebrate my efforts to create more free time I've decided to spice up our apartment so coming home & relaxing feels wonderful. My deadline is quick... I planned a cocktail party at our house a week from Saturday so I'm forcing myself to plow through this and get things done fast! (we'll see if that pans out, ha)
My budget is small but my splurges were a vintage Persian rug and a new outdoor dining set for our patio. The rest of the changes will be more low-key (new paint, reworking pieces I already own, and creating some quick original art for the walls).
Above is my inspiration palette for the place. I'm taking a risky step and painting our bedroom black a la Jenna Lyons' room, above, but I'm excited to see how it turns out..
