(Don’t worry, internet, you don’t even have to read! It’s time for another SHAMELESS PHOTO POST!)
Thinking about the real world and being a grownup and all that entails is a scary thought. And so I present you with something that comforts me always- home!
Anyone that knows me well knows that I am a nester. When it comes to my home and space, I like to curl up and be surrounded by colors and things that I love, despite if they match or even belong. You know how some people adopt animals? I adopt decor and inspiration ideas and throw them together in my little space. Luckily I live with a roommate who feels the same. So I thought I’d share our little haphazard apartment, because even when I am stressed or freaking out that I’m a senior and will be graduating in less than 2 months to take on the real world, I walk into our place and I instantly am cheered and safe and comfortable.
Welcome to the Lion’s den! (Or at least, a few selected rooms of our ‘estate’)
we really like heart-shaped things.
(judge me, but vinyl is the one hipster habit i can’t quit!)
(who says a cooler can’t be a tv stand?)
I really love little details and knickknacks, like my ‘inspiration shelf’
the gumball lamp,
and the fact that the hamburger chair has recently been altered to accommodate a certain furry roommate.
I don’t really believe in following any major design rules, except to buy things that entertain me and make me happy! I’m still developing my personal style so I don’t worry about making everything a theme, although most of the time I end up leaning towards the 1970s and vintage mixed with comfort. And you know, I might grow out of the lava lamp someday and maybe tone back the music memorabilia a little, but I don’t think I’ll ever outgrow my man Jimi.
I mean, some things are just necessary.
