Making An Apartment Into A Home

Sorry for my absence but a lot is going on right now. My fiance and I are currently getting things ready to move to Virginia and that means lots and lots of cleaning (yuck!). It also means many Goodwill donation trips which I don't mind because it's nice to get rid of stuff I could do without. I never knew how much planning, organization, and little details that must be taken care of while doing a move.

I'm looking forward to exploring a new state and redoing my new apartment. I haven't seen the new place yet because we weren't able to take the time off to drive down there (about 10 hour drive). I have seen pictures and I like what I've seen so far. As you know by now I'm a VINTAGE nerd and I've always been drawn to the mid century style homes. With a fresh slate, I'm making sure the new place will ooze mid century loveliness. I've done lots of window shopping, browsing Pinterest inspiration boards, and trips to thrift stores. So far, I've been able to pick a cute side table and an antique radio, both needing some TLC.

Still looking for two nightstands and two office desks with the vintage feel and infamous skinny legs. Hopefully once I get down to Virginia, I'll find affordable luck!

Here are some pictures that have given me some inspiration of what I want my new home to resemble

Such an exciting time for you! I am hopeless at interior decorating, but I love these photos. I love the last one- bright yet not gaudy. I love the color of those walls.

moving is so much work, but the decorating the new place and getting rid of stuff you no longer use or need is great :) good luck with the move and I like the modern-retro spaces that are your source of inspiration.

I could say I am a vintage nerd too, but there is something to me that it is important. I like the bedrooms and living room to look like from the middle ages, but the bathroom and kitchen hav to be modern. It is a combination that I have been thinking it is essential to create a harmony between old and new and maybe establish a new decoration style. It all started with the apartments in Buenos Aires I rented while i was there. They had this style and I found them super practical and efficient. Then I took the style back home and started decorating my place that way!
