This zagzag printed rug came in the mail yesterday and I am PLEASED AS PUNCH.

You can have one too for only $69!

Urban Outfitters, baby. Keeping us chevron lovers smiling and glad.

That’s all I’ve got for today.

apartment tour: bedroom

And so today marks the conclusion of the apartment tour. I hope you liked it. I certainly had fun showing it off. It’s work, putting a place together, but for me it’s super fun too. Once at a staff meeting during an “icebreaker” (can’t say that I love those), the question was asked, What would you be if you weren’t a teacher?, and the answer to that is so easy. I would be an interior designer. Grace Bonney would be my boss and I would work and blog at Design*Sponge. DREAM.

I would meet fun people and style homes and apartments with unique ideas and DIY talent.

All the live long day.

But for now, I guess this place will just have to do…

With any place, it’s all about the details you choose to incorporate into the home. What colors do you like? What memories do you hold close? How do you want to spend your evenings after a long day at work? Make your place comfortable and make it reflect you.

Personally for me it’s about color, charm, and attention to detail, which I think I captured just perfectly here in this wonderful apartment. I’m glad to call it home and I’m glad to have shared it with you.

Now who wants to come over for dinner??

Have a great weekend everyone!

apartment tour: bathroom

Man, we are nearing the end of the apartment tour. What, what!

It’s never ending, right?

But so totally amazing?

You love it?

Or you hate it?

Either way, it’s almost done so bare with me for these last two rooms today and tomorrow.

Now presenting… (drumroll, please)…. the LOO.

I think this bathroom is so flippin’ sweet. The blue tile is so snazzy. It’s even on the ceiling. How’s that for fancy?

We’re pretty much keeping it simple in here.

Simple as in that NO PARKING sign over the pot (I couldn’t help myself) and those totally amazing and adorable ikat towels that I DREAM about at night. What a steal those were (Anthro!).

That’s about it for this room.

And for a potty house I think it’s da bomb.
