In a Mauve Mood

Currently, it is 66 degrees F and raining in Baltimore. I have never been so ready for fall and all of its crisp glory. Bring on the oversized sweaters, dark denim, boots, and early nights. I. Am. Ready.

For me, part of ushering in a season involves changing my bed linens. I typically use a duvet and thicker sheets in the fall/winter and stick to a thin blanket and cotton sheets during the spring and fall. Last winter, I was in an all white everything mood and purchased a white duvet cover and matching pillow shams. This fall, I’m feeling moody and romantic.

I want my bedroom to become a boudoir. I want it to seem luscious and sensual. For inspiration, I have pinned multiple bedrooms, featuring beds in many different variations of disarray.

I have finally settled on a bedding set from West Elm. It is slightly pricey, but I live alone with two cats, so I should be able to keep this looking so fresh and so clean for a few season rotations.

Isn’t it divine? It checks all my boxes for a soft, sensual, moody, romantic bedroom. To complete the look and keep it from veering into frilly or girly, I plan to anchor it with some heavier textiles.

New Digs, Who Dis?

Don’t ever let someone tell you that moving is easy. People who say things like that are called liars. This is not an alternative fact. Moving is tough and every little thing involved with moving is annoying and frustrating. There is not one redeemable moment in the entire process.  After months of scouring Zillow, Trulia, and Craigslist (*shudder*), we finally found a place that was perfect. Unbeknownst to us, that was the easy part. After settling on the two bedroom/two bathroom apartment, a mere 5 minutes from my previous apartment, we patted ourselves on the back and then realized we’d be moving in January.  Continue reading “New Digs, Who Dis?”

Time to Upgrade: The Living Room

With fall slowly beginning to trickle in, I can only start to dream about what is in store for the new season. After nearly four years in my one-bedroom apartment, I am hoping to soon be able to move into a larger rental with my boyfriend. We just have to find one first… Continue reading “Time to Upgrade: The Living Room”

Domesticated Bliss

As I am moving into the next age-range box, I am thrilled to begin this new phase  in my very own apartment. Every happening, confident, adventurous lady needs a space of her own. And finally, I have mine. It’s a mix of vintage inspired pieces and traditional classics.
