what’s your decorating style?

I ask because I’m pretty sure I don’t have one. a style. I know what I like, when I see it ..but it often varies from contemporary, elegant, playful, modern, & even rustic. call me confused. I prefer diverse.

I have recently been inspired to get inspired to decorate our someday, soon-to-be new apartment. [everyone’s gotta have goals].

the most important thing [to me] about decorating an apartment you’re renting is to make it feel like home. not a temporary situation.

{apartment therapy} is the perfect website to find any & all inspiration. whatever your decorating style. or budget. it’s a beautiful thing. here are a couple of my fave finds ..

do you have a certain decorating style? where do you find your inspiration?

watch out pinterest – I’m comin’ for you, & your ideas.

happy tuesday.

  1. Hej! I just stumbled over your blog when reading other blogs and another one and another one and suddenly yours popped into my eye, especially this post – I can totally relate to the I-like-so-many-different-things-style :) Love what I’ve read so far, will for sure visit more often!

    Ahhh, this post resonated with me. We are renting a house at the minute and I have *really* struggled with the whole temporary situation (but who really knows?!!) thing. Also, a total lack of money and therefore no funds to buy decorative things like pictures and knick-knacks to make the place look lived in. I also struggle with a decorating identity! On the whole I probably go for shabby chic/vintage looks, but I also love clean, contemporary looks with bursts of colour. So what do you do with that?! No focus! So it makes buying decorative knick-knacks even harder because where on earth to start?

    Hey hey! I just found your blog through the hilarious Daily Tay and have loved what I’ve read! I also live in Chicago and know how hard it can be to find an apartment… let alone decorate it! I’m like you, if I like it, it stays, regardless of what “style” it is!

    Stay warm!!
