This summer when we got Samson I was so very vain about him and shamelessly so. I anticipated compliments on his behalf and I found much joy in arranging situations where my friends and family could gaze at him in admiration.
haha, I'm doing it again
Several times I asked myself, "Am I really vain about a dog?!!!!"
I mention Samson because the shameless vanity I still feel about him is comparable to how I feel about my apartment. Hahaha, I thought about colors and inspirations months in advance. I was CRAZY! I would literally lay in my bed at night playing interior designer before I moved to Iowa.
Here are some images I found on the web that inspired me
This photo was probably the most inspiring. I adore the yellow couch and I love how mismatched the art frames are
I found myself drawn to color, especially orange and yellow because imp they are happy colors, reminding me of things I love: sunshine, mangoes, sunflowers. I also found myself drawn to blues and greens because they feel fertile and renewing to me. Blues and greens conjured up images of the sea and trees, which I love for their beauty and serenity. So I decided to go with blue and green for my dining area and yellow and orange for my living room area
I loved the mismatched yet organized feel of the apartments I used for inspiration, especially when it came to texture and color and even furniture. But most of all I was inspired to really make my apartment my own. I just love how the personality of someone can shine through their living space
here's my living space, starting with my pets
Love that mermaid painting! Got it in a thrift store for $10
Mismatched dining chairs = love
One of my classmates was telling other classmates that my apartment looks like an Anthropologie ad! Haha, hilarious
p.s. next time I will show my office area
