Decorating My New Home + Giveaway FINISHED

8:30 AM

I've moved into my new home! I arrived just two days ago, so I haven't done much with the apartment yet. The only room I started to decorate so far is my bedroom. I have the basics set up: my bed, my dresser, my table and all of my makeup and accessories. Check out what I have so far:

My Dresser

I kept it simple with my dresser so far. I have this awesome 'Good Morning Gorgeous' printable from Created By S. She has a 'Hello There Handsome' printable as well, but my boyfriend hasn't gotten the chance to decorate his area yet! On top of the dresser, I displayed my (very tiny) perfume collection plus my brushes. I got the rose gold jar from Target for just $2! It's a total steal! It makes for a great brush holder and it mixes in well with the perfume colors.




Jewelry Display Area

I love displaying my jewelry. Each piece I own is beautiful and unique in its' own way. Plus, it's much easier to accessorize if I can see all my jewelry in front of me. I have a grayish jewelry tree holder, two ring plates and a ring box I DIY'ed (full post here). What pulls it all together is the monogram plaque I got from Little More Love Sign Co. It kind of claims that area as my own in a way. It's a symbol for my desk and my area, which is important to have when you're sharing a room with someone. You both should have defined spaces. The plaque fits in perfectly with all the accessories. I think this area is perfect; I don't even want to touch it!



Kitchen
 
I haven't really finished this yet, though I have given thought to how I want to decorate. I have a lot of vases and fake flowers that I can use as centerpieces. But what I really want is some really cute coasters. I have these plain brown cork ones, which are nice, but they're pretty boring against a white table. I need some color and pizzazz, which is where LUSH Coasterland comes in to play. They have such fun cork designs. I really want their gold stripes and polka dot coasters. They're the perfect amount of sparkle!


I'm still working on the living room and painting the walls, so more to come on that!

  1. Oh man...Decorating has always been tough for me. Sometimes I just give up. So I would keep things simple and easy. I would definitely want to tear out the icky carpet and put in some tile or wood floors. And I hate the tile counters in the kitchen, so I would re-do those too. Those are the big things.

    1. PS - I would also change up the color scheme. Last spring we painted the walls a light gray (but it turned out looking more bluish gray). So I would want an actual gray and then add pops of color with wall hangings and stuff.

  4. I like your ring holders. I need a better way to display my jewelry.

    As for my house, I would love to strip it down to nothing, love the minimalist style, so I'm actually sort of envious of your place right now.

  26. Right now, sadly, we're living with family during a "job transitional period". It's been a long time coming for us to get a home and we're doing our very best and everything that we can do to make sure that we achieve this goal within the next few months for our family. We've waited 6 long years to get a home, to call our own. Since I do not have a home to "re" decorate, I'd like to say that when I DO get a home of our own, I want to decorate our home in a country theme. Country cabin, primitive style prints and decor. something warm and cozy and reminds you of all the blessings and good in this world. Something I can come home to, raise my kids in and feel safe in :) Here's hoping, that our family achieves getting a home......soon. :)
