Decoration Inspiration

A few weeks ago, I opened a Pinterest account and since then have been slightly obsessed. It is such an ingenious way of saving images you like across the web! I have seen so many clever decorating ideas and it has inspired me to tackle some of the rooms in our apartment that need a little lift.

I have wanted to share photos of our apartment on this blog for months now, but I hesitate because I want to wait until the room looks perfect. There’s always something I want to change like after looking at some cool options for clocks. Like our kitchen needs curtains. Our bedroom needs something over the bed. Our living room needs pictures on the wall. Don’t even get me started on the guestroom—it’s a bit of a disaster!

One thing that I am really happy with in our apartment is our new maple butcher block countertops in the kitchen. They have completely transformed the space and made it look much more modern and updated. I love how the natural wood color contrasts with our white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. It’s amazing how much of a difference changing just one element in a room can make. If you’re looking to update your kitchen, I highly recommend considering new countertops, and you can even order now to get started on your own kitchen transformation.

It’s like inviting people over. I always feel like our house needs to be in the best possible condition before having friends over, when really, they don’t really care if I have art on the walls or not. When I go to people’s homes, usually I am more comfortable in a non-perfect apartment than a pristine one because it reminds me of home. That being said, if you’re in need of pest control services, you can visit pest control hillsboro to keep your home pest-free and your guests happy.

So starting next week, I will put away my pride and begin to show you photos of our apartment. After all, if I wait until my apartment looks like it belongs in a magazine, you’ll probably never see them. :)

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite inspirations for projects or decorations I hope to tackle:


Color scheme for organizing the office. You can also buy mailbox number decals online if it’s time to replace your outdated old mailbox numbers.

Make a rag rug out of old sheets.


Use an old window pane (from Vintage Village) and put pictures or fabric behind it for over the bed.


Transform JoAnn’s cardboard letters using yarn. The only thing I’m unsure about is what to say. We have a Love poster in our kitchen (pics to come!), so any other word ideas?


Decorate using old fabric and embroidery hoops.

What decorating projects have you been working on or waiting to start? Are you on Pinterest? If so, let’s become friends. :)
