Apartment Decor Lust List

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

I think one of the most exciting parts of anticipating my move, is planning how I am going to decorate my apartment. This is the first place I can really call my own, not a dorm room, not a sorority house, and no roommates, meaning I can really do me in all my decor. I love, love, love bright colors. My feeling is this that being a 20-something I can have some fun with bright colors, fun patterns and make my one bedroom apartment really unique without having to please anyone but myself. For example, if I want hot pink dining chairs...I can have them. (Yes, I have them and I cannot wait to see how they look in my new space!) 

Because I am somewhat of a perfectionist, I am not willing to settle for something that only sort of fits my vision. It must be perfect. So as you can imagine, I have been shopping around like crazy to find exactly what I am looking for. I will, of course, do a post of the finished product once everything is in place and to my liking but for now, I figured I would give you just a taste of some things I am dying to have. 

This Pillow from C.Wonder. The colors are just fabulous! Buy Here!

The color is so simple, yet the design is beautiful. And, it is on sale here.

Can you tell I love pillows? I think two of these would be just perfect on my sofas! You just can't beat Target's great prices here.
I love storage ottomans, they are functional in so many ways. And this pink one, swoon! It may be too bright, but I will have to try it. Purchase here!
To me, grey is the perfect neutral. Its just as sophisticated as black without being too dark for a small space. I am thinking a small version of this would look great in my kitchen. You can find this is so many great colors, here.

Oh.My.Goodness. I am IN LOVE with this pendant lamp. I am not 100% sure it will work in my space, but its so unique, fresh and modern. *fingers-crossed* You can find this beauty here!
All though college I had those ugly $5 full length mirrors stuck to various walls in my living spaces...with my new apartment, I think that this is a perfect, more sophisticated alternative. I have white bedroom furniture, so I am happy I can find it in white, here.  
I love being organized, and I love monograms. Design darling really hits the mark with this adorable pencil cup!
These C.Wonder coasters are hilarious! Not only are the colors great, but the quotes on the reverse side are too cute! The set of four includes: "I'm outdoorsy in that I like to get drunk on patios." (My favorite) "In victory you deserve champagne. In defeat, you need it." "Wake up & smell the coffee." and "Why limit happy to an hour?"

For me, sometimes, its the little things that make a house a home. These C.Wonder drink stirs are to die for. Who can resist a pineapple? Find them here.
While I do have a good portion of my furnishings packed and ready to go, I am waiting to get some things until after I get settled and get a feel for what my space is missing. I can't wait to find the finishing touches. I frequent re-sale shops and often find great deals on the perfect items. Exploring these hidden gems in a new city is going to be so exciting, and I know my mom will enjoy participating in the fun too!
